I think.......
If Hampshire Glos Middlesex and Essex win today we are out unless Kent v Essex on Wednesday is 1 point each.

Nearing half time today and looking like Glamorgan and Kent wont be helping us!
Relying on Surrey & Sussex for favours this afternoon.

Well at least we'll know by Tuesday and we deserve what fate brings our way I am afraid

Tuesday?
We will know by 7pm tonight what is needed or not.
And by 10pm Wednesday whether its all happened or not.
Kent beating Glos would be a huge help.
Surrey in good health at half way too

Yes... we play Tuesday? I really don't care about Wednesday as long as we beat Hampshire. We go on or we don't and again, whatever fate decides once we have beaten our final opponent.

Nobody plays in our group Tuesday!
All 4 games are 2pm Wednesday.
Simple equation now.
We need to win!
And neex Kent to beat Essex away.
Tough place to go but Kent have won 5 on the spin and will be going for top spot or at least a home quarter.
More than we could have hoped for at the inteval on Friday defending 211....

There we go then. Simple. And if not it's Notts on Saturday. First game at HQ so looking forward to that. It's been a while.

Hampshire v Somerset selected by Sky Sports as the televised game from South Group for those that can’t attend.

If Somerset get the chance they need to make Hampshire bat first as they’ve so far batted second in all their matches

Don't see why Dom Bess wouldn't be available.

If the forecast is good, I might go...

The results went our way today except for Essex beating Sussex.

So Essex winning again would put us out. Anyway we need to focus on getting the win against Hampshire

Must admit to be almost out after winning the first 2 games is some effort.

Well it actually is the exact opposite Ron. I doubt they have tried hard to do this but they are where they are.

We are but after winning first 2 games this is almost worse it could be. . Shows how bad we have been in the last 5. Would back us to go out but hoping for best . Could be stupid and say we are already through but leave that to type of nonsense to others

All is well remember Ronniesabre. 😉

Just win our game and whatever happens at Chelmsford happens. If we’re being brutally honest we don’t really deserve to qualify, but let’s wait and see what happens.

Not bad in all 5 Ron. We obliterated Middlesex. Inconsistent and presently with a 3-2 losing position and 1 to play.

Wednesday will be what it will be.

I know I've said this here before but... I don't get this "don't deserve to qualify" or the notion of getting in by the back door.
If we finish in the top three and get through, we will have deserved to do so, fairly and squarely as one of the top three in the division. If we don't, we won't. End of.

I hope we do, obvs.

That sort of logic is not welcome on here Shepton!

A very simple bit of logic indeed.
If we come 3rd after Wednesday we will have had a better campaign than 6 others in the group.
Not good enough for many but hey ho.

If we lose we wont qualify and wont have deserved to.

Roll on Wednesday.....

WSM fan you are correct, but this is a forum where you can praise and criticise. Works both ways I’m afraid. Praise you have to earn through performances on the field.

The team will certainly have to raise their game for Wednesday for sure. A change in the batting line wouldn’t go amiss either.

Of course I hope we qualify, but our fate is partly out of our hands unfortunately. Still more than we could have hoped for at the interval on Friday as you say.

Exactly Cleavo.
But sadly some only criticise.
I have been quite clear we have been inconsistent but dont feel the need to overly berate the players and management for each loss.
We have won 3 lost 3 and 1 losing draw!

Fingers crossed my trip to the bowl gives us all something to cheer about.

'Obliterated' in 3! Lucky in 1 Ron.... keep up. Only reason we have a chance is the weather.

Keep the misery in context. We have been either very good or depressingly 'not at the races'.

Not sure what your point is in the last post but in the words if the absent AG 'never mind"

At least I know what day the game is on. So take your own advice and keep up . And when we are on about misery at least I think Somerset will be around long term !!

I would assume that Dom should now be available for Wednesday

I read that the ECB have graciously said that Bess can play for Somerset on Wednesday and wonder what business it is of theirs. He is not on a central contract, was not in the ODI squad and the next Test is not until August.



LoL

The club finally confirm that TG is injured (groin).

Banton is not in the squad, Dom could be a useful allrounder, would expect Max and Meerkat (or maybe Jove) to miss out.
