    Yorkshire dug in well to get over 350
    Meaning that game will have to be a draw for Somerset to lose the virginity
    I’m keeping the faith but deep down I would expect a result at Lords

    Well we both lost out Nathan after being set an exact target of 6 an over in 40 overs. Yorkshire needed someone to stay there. Bresnan tried again but wasn’t to be. Yorkshire were never going to bat out for the draw though.

    Somerset to win the title easily this year…. :whistle:
    14’s a fair enough price anyway

    My days of listening to the commentary look over mind you, the Somerset ccc website show ball by ball live, you can’t ask for more than that, just need it to stop bloody raining

    Yorkshire’s batting woes seem to get worse. If Ballance doesn’t do the business then they just collapse. Bowlers came back well Saturday after a dodgy start to give Yorkshire a chance but 300+ was always going to be too much. Looks like you have the bragging rights in this particular game Nath :whistle:

    Could do with breaking this 7th wicket stance

    11/2 best price at the moment
    despite the good start a few injuries have crept in and the weather forecast here for the next match looks a bit dicey.

    The trouble Somerset will have is when they lose Renshaw who has had the Aussie call up. He has been outstanding and a big reason why Somerset have started so well.
    Without wanting to be counting the chickens too early, Somerset should be top within the next 3 and a half hours

    Looks like another win for Somerset as Lancashire top Yorkshire for an inept batting performance. This hopefully will help Yorkshire but can’t see them getting much out of the Notts match after they posted 400+. Somerset/Nathan will be hoping Surrey somehow slip up at Essex.

    Looking at the averages for the season thus far, things have changed so much since I was an avid cricket fan kid. One achievement that used to be recognised but not often done was 1,000 first class runs before the end of May. I believe Lara was the last to do this feat in 1994 mainly thanks to his record breaking 501. I think Graeme Hick also achieved it before he became “English” a few years before. Now it seems 1,000 before the end of September is a rarity due to the fixture list. Other records we probably won’t see again unless the game changes :-

    The Double – 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in a season. No bowler is anywhere near 100 wickets this season so this may also be a rarity.

    100 hundreds (in a career) – I think Mark Ramprakash was the last to achieve this. Not sure if anyone is close at present but would think you would have to be Bradman-esque to achieve the feat if your career started now.

    Runs in career – Sir Jack Hobbs scored over 60,000 whilst quite a few have scored over 30,000. Ian Bell passed 20,000 the other day and this seems a rarity nowadays.

    Test records have gone totally the opposite way. I remember thinking when Gavaskar became the first to 10,000 that it would take an enormous feat for the next batsman to do so. I think Tendulkar ended with 15,000+. Same with the bowlers – Hadlee/Kapil Dev passing 400. I thought someone one day would reach 500. Warne reached 700 then Muralitharan 800.

    Records are there to be broken or are they?

    Somerset are making a game of it 20/4

    I remember years and years ago Lancashire needing about 90 runs and Somerset got them all out for 70 odd with Caddick getting 9 wickets

    the revenge could be on…… :wacko:

    As for the records Homer, I use to be obsessed with the Somerset ones
    They use to print them in the back of the year book and I knew them off by heart
    they took them out of the year book about 10 years ago and I have lot all track of it

    others I liked were

    a century in each innings by same player
    opening batsman – carried bat

    and individual high scores by a player against a county
