A government inquiry is ensuing.

Grockle - the error to which you refer was early in the match - the business with the shirt numbers. At this point, the twins' father contacted Anthony G to tell him of his error (this was what Gibson said at the time)

The incident that I refer to happened on the final morning of the match (by which time the shirt number issue should have been already accounted for). On this occasion, no correction was apparently forthcoming from anywhere, for Anthony never did correct himself.

AG: I don’t think your initial-sake suggested that he was talking at the time about the player who was then bowling. So, I suggest that we give him a pass.

I thought that Anthony Gibson and his fellow commentator did a great job in providing unbroken commentary on each day’s play. From snippets I heard on BBC highlights, the two commentators at Taunton we’re so much better than commentators at most other grounds.

IMO and based on the time i was able to catch up with the game, the camera angles, coverage and commentary were all of a high standard and to find fault is rather churlish.

Like anyone else at the moment, first time out, bit rusty and that's all. Rather have our guys than so many of the others.

Olly Stone, who constantly seems to appear in the England frame ahead of Somerset`s new re-signer Craig Overton, is injured yet again and will miss the Bob Willis Trophy match for Warwickshire against Somerset on August 15-18.

He has a side strain and will be out for at least four weeks.

Meanwhile, Northamptonshire, who are using the Trophy to take a first look at promising youngsters, are expected to include 20-year-old all-rounder Emilio Gay against Somerset this Saturday.

They won`t be fielding their new spin sensation however - listed in this week`s The Cricket Paper as Saif Zaibmadness by a sub-editor who must have felt his attempt at a joke would be spotted by the proof-reader.

I noted that he had bowled only 3 overs in the Northants second innings.

Olly Stone doesn`t appear to be the brightest bail in a set of four anyway.

He was out of the game for more than 12 months in 2016-17, after suffering a cruciate injury while jumping in the air to celebrate the wicket of Moeen Ali, playing for Northants in a T20 match against Worcestershire.
