    The bowling stocks on the other side are pretty good (even if there's not much depth)
    It's the pitch, stupid.

    I see Andre Adams has been injured for Notts. If a serious one the Notts title challenge may be over before it begins as he is their most important player in recent seasons.

    On the positive side, Lanky are likely to escape a relegation dogfight this year.

    Couple of wickets more going down in that last session than I would have liked but an excellent day for Hampshire, scored at a really good rate as well.

    Adams unbeaten on on 151, has been a very good county batsman for a good while now.

    Kent crawling just past 200 must have made rather tedious viewing at Old Trafford. At least Anderson got a second wicket, and a good run-out.

    That Durham-Yorkshire game looks one to follow closely, Onions taking a wicket with the last ball of the day.

    Damn, everywhere Chander plays, he's got his arse on fire. Time he got to relax in a strong batting line-up.
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    And, guess what? They got to 256 with 87* from Chanders, 49 from Clare and 39 from Dino. Now wait for the usual 'You can't judge our innings until both sides have batted" cry, then something of a fightback with the ball and the customary 50/5 in the second innings.

    Well, at least this is good for the Windies!

    Averages of batsmen as of today:

    Godleman 22
    Madsen 9
    Durston 21
    Chanderpaul 69
    Redfern 14
    Whiteley 2
    Poynton (+) 7

    (Palladino tops the table of the english players with 27.)

    Perfect team to practice batting with your back against the wall I'd say.

    Really looking forward to watching the opening day's play between Somerset and Warwickshire tomorrow. So many good players to watch whether that's the battle between Warwickshire's potent bowling attack and a very strong looking Somerset batting line-up, or just the exciting individual talents of Hildreth, Buttler, Chopra, etc.

    Somerset win the toss and bat, perfect. Probably going to be a decent track despite a decent covering of grass, Trescothick had no doubts about trying to stick a total on the board first up. Wright, Woakes, Hannon-Dalby against Tres, Compton, Petersen first up, should be great viewing.

    Both Overtons are playing, should be interesting, Somerset bat first though, so we'll see Woakes&Wright in action first.

    Pretty unimpressive opening burst from Chris Wright, figures of 7-0-31-0. Expected him to be closer to 85mph and swinging the ball away from the right-hander, instead he generally hovered around 80mph with the odd ball shaping away and not quite the control that Woakes has bowled with.

    Trescothick has just struggled a little to get going but has got through the first hour and may well push on here with him finding his fluency as his innings progresses. Compton has been typically organised, and worked the ball away well when the bowlers have erred a little too straight.

    What sort of pace is Woakes operating at, and is he getting it to move around much?

    Well those two wickets rather change things, clear inside edge there though.
