Well done Steve Davies and Cove (whose lbw I thought was going down the leg-side). Some very nice strokes from both men.

It was frustrating to see our leader caught down the leg-side once again. I thought he had played beautifully until that point, with some excellent back foot stroke play.

James HIldreth's dismissal was ghastly. Suffice to say that trying to pull a ball from some way outside off-stump, in poor light, and when one has been out in the middle for all of about six minutes (when has but one run to one's name) was an example of very poor decision-making. Clearly the execution didn't work, either.... but then poor execution happens .. it's poor thinking that drives me crazy.

Overall, I think a very satisfactory day from a Somerset perspective. The forecast isn't great, but if we can get even 2.5 of the scheduled six remaining sessions in, it *may* be sufficient to get the Bears beaten.

Looking at the competition, barring contrivance a result in the Yorks vs Derbys table-topping game looks most improbable. So that's good.

I suspect Northants may still fold vs Worcs, though.
