I think two spinners is right, I usually do, especially with one turning it each way as we have had virtually all summer not allowing the batsmen to settle, and it is possible because of Abell's effectiveness as a fourth seamer.

The batting looks right too, right and left handed at the top and another left-hander lower down.

I would bat Jamie Overton above Brooks if this were the side, although I would probably play Davey ahead of Brooks because he is more consistent and I am not sure with three main seamers we would want both Jamie and Brooks in the side as both can leak runs on occasion.

Cricket settling on 11 players a side was a stroke of genius, inadvertent or otherwise. Always a batsman or a bowler short, although Somerset's string of bowling all rounders mitigates against that, and always a fielder short, hence the demise of third man I imagine in these days of more attacking fields. In the balance of the side context Gregory is priceless, the Overtons being equally brilliant at slip or on the boundary are a real boon in balancing the field.
