GLOS v SOM T20

Traffic northbound out of Somerset has been horrendous all day and the Somerset team coach is still crawling its way to Nevil Road. Ten miles to go at last tweet.

The start time has been pushed back to 7pm.

AG that 'joke' wasn't particularly funny the first time it was used and hasn't got any better through the many many other times you have rolled it out as something 'original' to say. Need some new material dude.

Half an hour ago when Anthony Gibson arrived the only Somerset representatives at the ground were Matt Maynard and Steven Davies. The coach 🚌 has now arrived, awaiting news of a start time.

We were at the Stragglers between about 12 and 1 today and there were players about. I have to say that they were mostly people I would not expect to be travelling. Marcus, Jack and a twin I assumed was Jamie from a distance.

Then when this story did come up I did remember that Lewis and Jason Kerr were in the coffee shop. You wouldn't think anything of it - train here then move seems simple until you then read the stories of the traffic problems. This side of Weston, trips to Bristol can be nightmares if the traffic starts to back up.

I really think we should be opening with Myburgh, to give him as many balls of the power play to bat as possible if he batted for all 6 overs of the power play we'd get some pretty big scores.

Well he batted for 5 today and we haven't. As always with T20 is all a bit hit and miss.

Myburgh batted for less than 4 overs of the power play

Why is there any question that he is a valuable player?

Northerners need 42 from 30, could be tight, they're favourites I think.

All a bit of a mess unfortunately.

Traffic can't be helped, but makes you wonder why we didn't travel up last night.

Cost I guess.

Another pasting. We don't very often get the better of Glos on their home ground. All rather depressing.



A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

Brilliant definition of 'pasting'. You really don't like or really understand this format do you Tom.....(smiley face).

Well done to the Bristolians. Let's try and give the Brownhats a little more of a 'pasting' than this on Sunday.

Yes it was a 'pasting' by any knowledgeable persons standards.

Glos had only lost 3 wickets and had balls to spare.

You don't like losing do you? You need to get used to it.

And you like it far too much...as long as it is Somerset doing the losing. We lose because we don't play as well as the other side. I'm fine with that but I know T20 and you just like overstating problems for effect That's the only difference.

If you don't score enough and don't take wickets you lose. The scale is not an issue unless you lose by a lot of overs in short time. We didn't. We simply lost.

A T20 'pasting' is a whole much worse than this Tom... need to keep up if you are going to comment on this 'non cricket' as you call it.

Why DO you bother commenting on this stuff in the first place as you downgrade it so much? Surely this is below your mighty cricketing intellect?

Why show how little you understand of the shortest format?

It's like grandad talking about the Sony Walkman trying to be 'down with the kids'.
