I know JOve is on a personal best with a century tantalising but surely Somerset's greatest chance of winning is to declare now and try to bowl out Warks in however many sessions remain out of the five that there could be (though almost certainly won't be). The wicket may have lost its life but Somerset's bowling line-up is strong and Warks have nothing to play for.
Get a couple of early wickets and hope the weather holds...

We really could do with a full quota of points however, we don't want to be the side that misses out on the final due to not having as many points as the others.. granted we could regret that if we don't win today/tomorrow but I don't think and extra 20-30 minutes of smashing it around post lunch would make much difference.

It's a trade-off – and either or both methods (declaring/playing on) could either fail or succeed. I'd declare now but can see the logic of playing on until 400 or all out... as long as Somerset win!

That was close ... I turned on the livestream with Jamie on 99*, which would normally be the cue for me to jinx everything and get him out. But it looks like we got away with it - well played, young man!

I can see no reason for batting on now, with max batting points and a huge lead, unless it's to demoralise Warks for a few more mins...

Jamie Overton, 120, highest ever score by a Somerset No.10.

What fun! And what elegance at one end and brutality at the other.

Good to see Steve Davies and Jove make up for the loss of runs with Jack Brooks being out of the side.

An absolutely excellent opening spell with the new ball from Josh Davey here.

Contrary to what the commentators are claiming, the Hain edge off Cove's bowling really didn't seem, to me, to carry to slip (perhaps they should come up slightly).

I don't how Hain survived his lbw vs Cove.

Absolute pearler from LG to rip out I R Bell.

Amazed that Egbaston has seemingly avoided the rain. Rain either side of the ground it seems looking at radar

And Bell has gone! I still remember his match-winning century at Lords in 2010, an elegant piece of innings building if ever there was – and the Hildreth run out on the same day haunts me, I tell you.

If we get enough playable conditions between now and close of play tomorrow we should win from this position and hopefully make up for some of our 'missing' bonus points from the first two games. I'm counting on nothing, though, and it's fingers crossed...

Burgess looking quite good here - looks quite impressive - and very strong square of the wicket on the off-side.
