More likely McLaren and Jarvis are their bowling strengths, so use them first when pitch likely to be most helpful to seam bowlers v batting line up that could still harbour demons

We appear to be unchanged, as per cricinfo.

So that would support the notion that the track will turn as we surely, otherwise, would be disinclined to gamble on Peter Trego as first-change bowler?

It gives us the theoretically long batting line up with Trego at seven.

That T E Bailey must be a good age now. 64 years since his famous match-saving partnership with Willie Watson in the ultimately successful Ashes series.

Will do LoL.
Is anyone using the live feed? Comments on it if you have any.

It's excellent - thanks to all involved.

A couple of hundred are watching it.

Good battle of wits between the Lancs seamers, who plainly see Tom as a big lbw candidate, and our skipper who, I think, sees their line of attack as feeding his primary strength.

The live feed is great. They say they're synching the bbc commentary next season, which will be great. I always have difficulty finding the commentary on my phone.

This is a decent batting deck so SD MUST make them pay for that fairly poor drop.

I agree that the live fee is excellent. I have delayed it slightly, so that the commentary is ahead (which means that I can gauge which balls to watch from the radio commentary).

Very good ball from Parkinson to Tom.

I have serious doubts as to whether we will reach a truly commanding score from here.

I think this seems a 350 or so deck and we'll do very well to get a score much over-par from here.

Of course, we don't know how the track will change from here. But unless it changes quite a bit (for the worse from a batting stand-point) then I fear that it may be a draw track.

Ok, so to answer a point previously raised by Clarence this cannot be the same thing as the pictures around the ground because guys like Brian have had their pics up for donkey's..

Parry starting to get more purchase now - a better sign for Jack and Dom.

Trego looked all at sea, throughout, I'm afraid.

As I've said before, Parkinson looks a much better prospect than Mason Crane, to me.

Lancs might leave the new ball here

We wanted him to stay in and just support. We need to do what we don't do well which is just grind the runs out. In the words of Tony "accumulation, accumulation, accumulation"

Collapse in full swing now. It is turning a lot more than before tea, though, so if this is going to be the direction of travel of the surface then we may be in business.

This could be an issue if Somerset don't get over 300. Parkinson has been mentioned in relation to Crane a couple of places around the ground today.

Interesting definition of 'full swing' but another 70 would be very very nice.

Dom Bess out some way. The commentators thought he was bowled around his legs but the announcement was stumped. On the replay we have you can see a bail off and then the keeper takes out a stump but the bat seems to be in when that happens.

You'll have to get that from the umpires when they come in.

Anyway he's out, Jack is in and we need 10 for another point and 60 for another two. I suppose the 'collapse' is still in 'full swing' - will Steve Davies reach 100? Will Somerset manage the next 10 overs? Does Tim know which end of the bat you hit the ball with?

I think Steve had better try and hammer a quick ten here...
