Well done, Craig Overton for showing the resolution and discipline that those that are primarily employed for their batting failed (George apart) to show.

If, as still seems more likely than not to me, Kent go on to win this match, then the most obvious difference in the match is liable to be the fact that Kent made a decent start in their first innings, and we made a decent start in neither innings.

I'm not convinced with the whole "bat Hildreth at three because England have vacancy," line of thinking. Andy Hurry added that "we'd only do it it was right for us," but the very obvious question is this:

If it's "right for us now," why had it never previously been so deemed i.e. is there anything at all that has changed at Somerset to justify the change or is this nothing more than a product of the England situation?
