Big Jim - are you, per chance, "Dylan Thomas," on the comments alongside the live feed.. some of this chap's comments are redolent of your style..

For example...

"Smart TV? We've only just got used to teletext here in Wales."

And out he is winkled. Jack gets him caught short.

How many other sides have their senior professional fielding at silly mid?

Young 40 year old caught the old 40 year old.

82 for 4

Some stat just floated around somewhere here. That last one was Jack's 100th wicket in the last two seasons... no one has more.

When Jack took the ball today he walked up like a man who you should be worried about facing. The Lancashire batsmen respected him from ball 1 - a spinner with a name's extra advantage, especially at home.

I saw a T shirt this morning with the perfect motto for Jack Leach at the moment.

It read;

'Underestimate me? This should be fun'

That seems to be his bowling stance at the moment. The Lancs batsmen tried to hit him out of the attack and he simply varied his flight, length and speed and had them all over the place. There wasn't a lot of spin involved. Dom has that and possibly ought to be bowling from the Pavilion end (where Parkinson was getting spin yesterday) when he is re-introduced.

This side are not dead yet.

Jack's 100th first class wicket at Taunton... those people who were going to suss him out in his second season..... seems to be taking a bit longer than expected.

I haven't read all eight pages on this thread so far, and I'm sure others are saying the same, but why couldn't this Somerset have turned up earlier in the season?! Fingers crossed on the weather... (and I'm not jumping the gun on the result of this match, only that the team is now actually competing).

On the live feed. Has anyone noticed Bailey's strange way of facing. He seems to be setting up for a ball from the covers?

Doesn't matter coz Dom has just got him stumped!!

111 for 8

an 18 over examination of facing spin bowling for the Lancashire tail

75 needed to save the follow on.... just saying.

And now for the debate. If the last 2 don't avoid the follow on do we enforce it? I means that if there is a 4th innings we are not bowling but a 200 lead and a timw tonight to make inroads might help us get ahead of the weather

One wicket to go. And to enforce the follow-on would surely be the correct option here? With the weather so unpredictable we have to go for the quickest potential win and trust our bowlers to deliver? Don't we?

Definitely enforce. Best chance of a win with weather around, and little chance of losing. If we bat again there will be the usual debate around how long to bat until we are safe.
It's not the modern way though is it?

Of course we must enforce the follow on.

As I said in the last match against Warwickshire....
