Watching the whole day I would say it was about 60% to 40% in Essex's favour today.Ball did a little all day to give the bowlers some encouragement, and the odd ball kept low off the seamers.Definitely turning all day without excessive exaggeration ,and none of the Somerset team apart from Tregs ,really looked in at any time. I think the game will hinge on 1 or 2 early wickets tomorrow including Mr Cook , who looked generally comfortable from the start.
An essex lead of no more than 50 would make the game finely balanced.
