    Williamson was such a fantastic signing for a batting order that seems to be just coming together at the right time. It didn't half look in poor shape a few weeks ago when we ended up batting the spinners at 5.

    You could argue that we're now batting a spinner at 3, but I prefer not to think about his bowling.

    Yes, he's been a bit of a disappointment, considering all the hype, but I'm just putting that down to the hideousness of where he was born.

    Honestly, believe him and the Overtons could be a very decent and contrasting attack for Somerset in a few years time.

    His batting though is the terrible thing, the fact is that I'm sure he was touted as a batting all-rounder for much of his youth, but it just hasn't happened. A shame, but I kind of agree with Scaly that he shouldn't be batting at 6, let Chawla do it or anyone else. Needs to relax down the order and maybe he could score a few 30 or 40s and come on from there.
    He is a standard county bowler, with very similar figures to Craig Meschede and if he is anything more than a tailender he is doing a good job of hiding it.

    Wonder what odds you've got on Amla bagging a pair at Taunton of all places, not just the traditional flat pitch but the attack they have. Incredible.

    Bit miffed at Durham's slow scoring rate in the latter part of their innings. It's not just the fact that situation makes slow runs almost entirely pointless since Durham are largely safe unless it turns into a minefield on day 4 (it's like when Clarke declared behind v West Indies, if they collapse you almost certainly win because of the skill differential and fact you're chasing a total that should be easy - else it's a draw) but it also makes it a lot harder to get the 4th or 5th batting points.

    umm so I actually think meschede is a decent bowler in County cricket Pews always talk nonsense.. and I said gregory's batting has been horrible so far.

    Funny isn't it that all Somerset Batsmen have to be downgraded on the amount of runs they score at Taunton, but the bowlers don't get the reciprocal bounce. Mind you Scaly you're not one to rail against people taking a stereotypical view of your county's home ground, so I guess that's fair enough.....

    Well, it's the useless meschede that did okay today. Still not massively confident.

    Ravi is on Celebrity Pointless too, it's just gets better.

    Except he's incredibly thick, but it just makes him more endearing.

    Lancs got promoted, and Yorkshire title chances went up the khyber, can't argue with that.
