Here we go for Day 3(2)

Dickson facing with Renshaw at the other end. Gregory Opening from the Pavilion.

Discussion about whether the umpires wanted the lights on or not. We've gone without.

A couple of supporters left yesterday when the lights were switched on at 30% because of the glare which was not what some are used to mid afternoon in Taunton in April. There might be a surge in the purchase of sunshades for the evening matches.

The floodlights are the only ones of this type in the Northern Hemisphere at the moment (though it seems Essex are going for the same setup) and there may be some adjustment required by spectators because they are bloody bright.

There was comment yesterday that players are looking to practice under them because the adjustment for high balls is also required - some catches were spilled at the opening cerempny for them last Sunday it seems. One would imagine we will work under them and then smack the ball into the stratosphere for the opposition to cope with once we have the light levels sussed.

Josh Davey is opening from the River, a difference from yesterday when it was Jack Brooks I think.
