2 homes wins for top spot starting with Hamps

The squad has been unchanged since being reduced to 13.
Reading between the lines it seems clear our leading white ball bowler from 2018 MUST and will be introduced.

Jamie has been fit for weeks now & has done all asked in the 2s with good spells, goid figures and sime runs too.

Not only this but he will add energy & enthusiasm to the field which gas been lacking a little.

Timmy G i think will be left out & for me Brooks doesnt offer anything different.
The weather looks set fair so no suggestions dobbly medium pace will be the requirement.
In a 320/330 a side match its essential we have wicket takers in those middle overs.
To be even more bold Dom may come in for George & Lewis goes back up to 6.

I may even get my JOVERTON 8 shirt out ready.....

Hampshire have added opening bat Joe Weatherley, who can also bowl off spin, and former West Indian Test bowler Fidel Edwards to the 11 who beat Sussex by taking four wickets in five legitimate balls (one was a wide) at the end of a high-scoring match on Thursday.

Sam Northeast captains this squad in the absence of James Vince on England ODI duty: Abbott, Markram, Dawson, Berg, Weatherley, Alsop, Donald, Northeast (c), Rossouw, Taylor, Edwards, Fuller, Crane.

Somerset - same 13-man squad plus Jamie Overton.

It would be nice to be proved wrong, but what has Tim G done in the last two games to warrant selection over any of the ones left out? I can't believe that playing TG ahead of Josh Davey or Bess is fair or even sensible. I would even play Leach ahead of him. I have nothing against the man himself personally but surely performances MUST mean something!

Jove has taken his place, OB. The right decision, in my view.

Sorry people. I woke up and pit the live stream on at 51 for 1 and now we're 60 odd for 3. I take full responsibility.

I certainly do at 128 for 5 just before 9 in the morning!! Anthony has just made the point that making a game of this is important.

A thoroughly underwhelming display from the batsmen today, and the smart money from here would be on a heavy defeat, I'm afraid.

We are Somerset - we don't do consistency unless it is to be consistently inconsistent !

Which is what Anthony was referring to. A loss and no home fixture in the next round. A big loss and we may be struggling and relying on others again.

There is a little turn, so we might regret not going with two main spinners (with all due respect to Azhar).

This wicket looks like the same one used against Kent. If that's the case we are surely playing into the hands of the Hants spinners? Good job we have a strong batting line up else we'd be dead ducks quack.

Interesting info from Anthony on how SCCC could have pandered to England's supposed requirements to keep Jos at Taunton or given CK the captaincy.....

Perish the thought we'd just pick the best Somerset keeper at the time and ask a talented batsman to have some patience and work on their game to become a must pick at international level.

Poor shot from George, and now Roelof gone and I'd say that either we will bowl and field like demons, or else the fat lady will be making an appearance rather early in proceedings.

I should have turned over and gone back to sleep!!!

As Rodders posted earlier, we are still consistently inconsistent.

57 balls left on the table.

Execrable.

Well, we deserve to be badly beaten in this one, and we will be unless there is a miraculously good bowling and fielding display in conditions, which it must be said, are far from difficult for batting, by the looks (look at the rate at which we scored in between losing wickets). (and/or Hants bad like eejits as the other possibility).

Oh dear. That really was a grim batting performance.

Some simply dreadful dismissals and a collective effort perhaps best described as unfocused and brainless. To leave 10 overs unused is simply unforgivable.

Will be astonishing if Hants bat as badly as that.

Failing which we will have to bowl and field heroically.

Dear oh dear.
What has happened to the ruthless team of three or four games ago?
Complacency encouraged by, and/or, little change to the team to suit conditions and previous match performances?

Somebody mentioned "complacency." Was this complacency? Or more like a collective failure of nerve?

A definite lack of focus.

I doubt people have reached 'complacency' at the end of the first month of the season or after a number of pretty definite defeats at 50 over cricket.

Ah well, we'll be welcoming back some posters at the end of this game I assume so there is that to look forward to.
