Absolutely right, Rod.
I'd have picked Mybs at number three for this one.

Sadly, the chances of JA taking five wickets are , well....

The best we can hope for is that he *might* be able to tie down an end.

That's what he brings - some bowling that is usually economical, but it's not enough to merit a place given absence of batting performance and absence of bowling penetration.

Maynard will have to drop him all over again.

The 2nd eleven look like they have found a promising bowler (P D Trego) 10 overs-3 maidens-30 for 5.
One wonders why he is not in the first team?

But we NEED the win and MUST go for it with all guns blazing.

Your 13:30 assessment is pretty much spot on AG. Little I can do if not asked to act and being indermined by activity of people.

Ahh well not the first golden opportunity missed of this season.

Well,unfortunately, Gl, when he was in the team, earlier this season, Peter had a bowling average in three figures.

Last year he was superb with the bat so his diminished bowling role didn't really matter. But this year a batting average of about 20 and a bowling average in three figures were not cutting the mustard.

Still, there's no point Peter playing in the seconds at all, unless Mr Maynard is going to pay attention to his performances.

Perhaps, Matthew has sent him to the seconds specifically with instructions to work on getting back to it as a bowler?

It would be nice to think that were the case. And if he's bowling well in the seconds then he ought to be a strong candidate to return instead of Mr Allenby, given that he is probably a much better bet to make runs.

To judge from the scorecard, it would seem that conditions may have been loaded in favour of the bowling side this morning. But Hants have made a much better start to the follow-on so further wickets may press Peter's case more effectively.

What on earth are Middlesex up to? having collapsed to 111-9 with rain on the way and an awful forecast for tomorrow they have gone into full on T20 mode and hit six consecutive deliveries for 4!!!!

It means they've given up a la Yorkshire on the same ground last season.

From what I heard it's not too bad but the umpires don't look terribly interested in actually going out there and getting the cricket on.

I am relatively new to the game of cricket, I am only in my 60"S, so I should probably bow to your superior knowledge of stat's and the game in general, but may I venture to say that maybe PT is bowling better at the moment because he has given himself a chance to bowl. I cant remember him bowling in at least two of the current formats I.E. 20-20 rubbish and the 50 over version this year. If I am wrong, then I apologies.

It seems to me though, that he is not on his own in performing below his usual standard this season, but it must be particularly upsetting to be replaced in the team by some one (JA) who is preforming well below the standard that Tigger sets himself, and IMO is not both physically and technically fit to play for Somerset.

I seem to have seen someone else on this thread asking: what does JA contribute to the team. Its certainly not fitness or performance on the field, perhaps he is particularly good at brown nosing with the DoC or running for his drinks? Or am I being cruel? Perhaps!

Well done Steve & Tom. And well done Dom as well.

Five batting points as well ! That hasn't happened too often recently.

All of my comments related to CC cricket. He did bowl in the CC and had a three figure bowling average earlier this season -- 170 to be specific.

Nobody that has a season record of 20 with the bat and 278 with the ball has too much right to be upset at being dropped.

But they would have a right to be upset if they started to put in strong performances in the twos whilst JA does nada in the firsts, and yet JA still got preferred.

Great effort from Somerset - particularly in the week that both Yorkshire and Middlesex have disintegrated!

Time to declare now the milestone is passed?
Or have a go and try and get a quick 20 first? Maybe the latter.

What pay back it would be for last season if the final day results saved us, and relegated Middx and Yorks!
