Trigger is in for this one - bit of a surprise given news this morning of probably using a second spinner (what RvdM is I'm not sure).

He's in for Timmy G though which seems a little strange.

I'm going to run this as the thread simply because the other thread has already hit 100 posts and that is when the mobile version starts to clog up.

So any comments on this game on here please. Fanx

I can log into the commentary site and learn that commentary is now happening, but no sound is coming through. Is this ,y fault or is there a wider problem?

I now find I can get the BBC Wales commentary but not the Somerset one.

As the second richest man in England I have paid to. Put a spanner in the BBC's works. For goodness sake LoL find something more worthwhile to listen to on a Sunday afternoon.

Why is Lewis being asked to bowl (or to a degree play at all) in these games?
Surely, if he has a serious back problem, he should have had treatment as soon as it was known.
This way he might have been able to come back fro the last one or two CC1 games?

Apparently he needs a major op to bolt his back together. I agree better he gets it fixed straight away. But he'd have no chance of being back this season, either way.

Going to have to chase 185+ at this rate...

Thanks AG.
If he needs a major op, what on earth is he doing playing, and Somerset management allowing/picking him?
Get it fixed, even if he doesn't play again this season - that must be better than risking more damage?

We were told that this back injury was not going to get any worse earlier in the season. We are now being told that the painkilling injections aren't lasting as long as they hoped so he can't play long duration games. If the back is saying 'I hurt' it means 'I need fixing'.

Get the bloody tools out and bolt the fella back together rather than asking him to bowl in a lost cause or in longer games if he can't do it.

100 up at 10.4 overs.

So very Somerset to let rubbish like Nick Selman smash his highest T20 score in a must-win game

Don't despair - all is going to form.

Somerset will win this, so get behind the team.

a bit previous to say "rubbish like Nick Selman" given that today was only his second T20 innings.

Both Gregory and Jamie Overton have chronic back problems at a comparatively young age, and this season is not the first it has happened.

With a thin playing staff the club cannot tolerate 2 players missing months off each season through a repeated injury.

Sadly the only option is for the club to offload them both on health and fitness grounds.

If they temporarily recover it will be the same again next year and so on.

I await the abuse.



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

Power plays could scarcely be more different here - they made loads and we've started sluggishly.

They aren't going to do it Tom so saying they should is pretty pointless and abusing you for saying it makes as much sense.

It seems to be a career characteristic of most young bowlers. Jamie or Lewis are not the only ones. They aren't the first and they probably won't be the last.

It may do for Jamie in the end as he seems to have the more serious problem but should we put him on the market with this issue there are a number of counties who would pay for the treatment and play him.

Maybe they should bolt their backs before they start. Un-natural sporting action creates injury issues shock horror.

The things kids do to become famous aye?

The back injuries are undoubtedly a concern, Tom S, but good bowlers don't grow on trees.

Far from getting rid of bowlers, this club will - if we go down- probably have to consider improving the contracts of certain players to ward off interest from CC1 sides..

The injuries to LG and Jove might limit interest in them this winter, I suppose. Two spinners and Cove very likely to be in demand and will, presumably, be more tempted to go if we're in the wastelands of CC2.

I was tempted not to bite by Tom's post, but I failed. Both are far too talented to just dump. I'd agree that you probably wouldn't take a risk on signing them if they were approaching or over 30, but I'd hope Somerset keep hold of them for a few years yet & see whether their maturing/operated on bodies can handle the demands.
