Yes, that was a potentially pivotal loss.

This must be Tom's longest home innings this season by some considerable distance.

Sadly, Mybs says this is the same track as they used yesterday.

Says it was slow yesterday and likely to get slower and slower and slower.

If he's right then it won't be at all easy for us to get the result that we need.

Perhaps it will turn?
Shame Mybs isn't playing.

Excellent, Tom - now make it really stick... we need a ton.

Mybs said he thought it would turn today, but it hasn't.

Apparently, this track was also used vs Notts for the one day QF.

So we've started the game on what amounts to a day three pitch.

As Mybs said quite a few tracks here have turned early in the match and then turned less as the game has gone on.

So it might be that, because this is a day three track, we've already missed the days that usually turn - who knows?

It would be hugely disappointing if we're playing on a pitch that isn't turning by what amounts to day seven though!!!

Batty being treated with a certain measure of contempt by the sounds of it.

This Surrey commentator has absolute verbal incontinence.

This is the first proper innings from Abell this season. His other knocks were when games were over as a contest. It's really good to see him back and firing, both he and Steven have played this perfectly by taking time to get in and then really up the strike rate.

Little chance of Jove being fit until the final two CC matches, if then, as per Mybs.

He and LG both rather a worry, going forward. As well as the bowling has gone for much of this season, we probably need more pace bowling resources given the injury history of those two.

Beeb have studiously avoided asking Mybs anything about his future!

Where was Mybs saying this AG? He was in the press box earlier asking what the pitch was like to thank Ben for that assessment.

Jamie is coming along and is at the starting bowling stage it seems so Mybs assessement sounds about right.

Lewis says the injections stopped lasting long enough so they are working to get him to the end of the T20 and then he is going in to have it bolted together when it should be fine.

I'm enjoying eating a lovely slice of Humble Pie re Tom Abell.

Hoping there is plenty more to come.....

Yes, we need these two to bat for a very long time as it seems evident that the track is fairly dead.

Need to hope for full batting bonus points ... and that the track then falls apart on days 3 and 4 (which will be days 6 and 7 for this particular track).

Does seem a very odd choice then, when we need to win, to play on an old pitch when pitches do less and less as they get older?

So this pitch has had nothing done to it since then - it was suggested that they probably played on it last year as well so it may be a Day 250 pitch? The discussion with a Somerset spinner earlier suggested it was expected to take spin on Day 3 or 4

Rain is pretty heavy now and the covers are going on. We've been lucky up to now. It may have ended.

Well, let us fervently hope that the "Somerset spinner," whoever he may be was spot on.

A shame for Tom and Steve that they will, probably, have to start again tomorrow morning.

Q & A session with MM has been brought forward to 5pm (heard it on the PA, as the Radio mic. has been left on !).

Any feedback from this would be most welcome from anyone who attends.

The 'radio mic' effect wasn't that it had been left on. They had a problem with the PA and had a look at it in order to make sure the announcement was made. Seen a few walking over so any comments would be very much appreciated. Especially by those who had those bursting questions to ask about conspiracies, misinformation etc. Good opportunity to nail them down.

The pitch will have another inspection at 5:20 after a deluge. The outfield is very wet so it is highly likely that the match will be abandoned for the day.

Fast bowler Stuart Meaker must be wondering what he has done to upset the Surrey hierarchy at Taunton this weekend.

Yesterday, when Surrey failed to accelerate towards the end of their innings and were then in desperate need of wickets as Somerset won with almost a full over to spare, he neither batted nor bowled.

Then today, as if itching to go, he claimed Marcus in his very first over, yet was only granted 11 more by Batty out of the 64 Surrey have bowled to date.

Good day for the Davies clan, though. While our Steven was scoring 68 not out, young Alex Davies at Lancashire contributed 97 to an opening partnership of 129 against Hampshire. Irony or ironies, Alex Davies is also keeping wicket although Jos Buttler is in the side - and has been doing so in the championship for some time.

Jos, who surely has no chance at the moment of replacing Bairstow in the England Test side, must be almost as upset as the more vocal of the Lancashire supporters are at his very mixed batting form of late. Will he still be at Old Trafford next season?
