The Blast! Are we really still going for this 100 thing?

In case my IT skills let me down the pertinent info is below:-

Somerset will delay signing a second overseas player for the Vitality Blast until after their first five group games.

That is because the club want to recruit a Championship replacement for the injured Matt Renshaw ahead of the match against Worcestershire at New Road, starting on July 22.

Regulations only allow two overseas signings to be registered for the same period. So, with Anderson already signed, Somerset had to choose between bringing in another T20 player for the early group games or a new face for the Championship.

Director of cricket Andy Hurry said: “The situation has been complicated, but we are hopeful of having a new signing for the Worcestershire match and then a later one for the Vitality Blast.”

Perhaps management are not as inept as some are suggesting?
