Good to see Woakes batting at 6, hope he makes the most of it.
Double hundred up for Luke Wells.
Warwickshire collapsing to 4/86. Woakes in the middle - will we see a special knock from him today? He's good enough to do it, he knows an England spot isn't far away and he's got a pretty unassuming Somerset attack to do it against.
Yeah big innings for Woakes. I'd be seriously considering him for the Test side with Pietersen injured. Reckon the whole him-batting-6 thing is an ECB request for this game? Rikki Clarke batted ahead of him last week and he's averaging about 45 for the season so it seems a bit of a strange "demotion" (batted 7 both weeks, but you get what I mean) for Clarke.
Oh dear, what a shame, nevermind
Joverton has bowled well enough at times, but his two wickets have been from awful balls.
The new botham
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Well not a great way to get out.
104/6, in big trouble.
Would have enforced the follow-on myself, Trego only bowled 10 overs, would have had him and Thomas open up tonight, and they'd all be rested by tomorrow.
Happy with the Overtons though, and Leach.
Cricket is full of little ironies, and Chris Tremlett's only wicket today was the man who replaced him after his last Test. Good that he got through the day though. The size of the Sussex lead is a bit worrying, but the forecast for tomorrow isn't great.
Enjoyed Willis saying how Buttler should be playing as a batsman in test cricket for England in a couple of years. What an idiot.
Feel sorry for Kieswetter. Him and Buttler had contrasting fortunes in this match but he is clearly the better batsman in the four day game. There is a load of talent with Buttler and imo a better temperament than Kieswetter which should serve him well in the long term but Buttler is way behind Kieswetter as a stand alone batsman. He's lucky to have played as much first class cricket as he has as a batsman at 6 given he averages just above 30 with 1/2 the games at Taunton. Buttler is just too susceptible just outside the offstump to be particularly succesful in english conditions and it would be unwise for Somerset to ever bat him higher than 6 at current as Willis was asking for.
Can see Buttler batting at 7 for England as a WK but no higher and certainly not as a stand alone batsman.
JOverton as he did last year in the u19 WC looked knackered coming back for later spells
Bairstow had a disappointing day according to the cricinfo report. Dropped an easy chance from Stoneman early in his innings and was done by an Onions bouncer. Gonna be a disaster playing him in the the first test of the summer on current form.
Glos slipping to another defeat - sigh
All credit to Leicestershire, it would have been easy for then to gloss over today's embarrassing result but they have a full report on the county's website (the photo, I assume, is of L & B hero Luis Reece who may be interesting a county before long);
