On a happier note, Somerset are 173-8 against the mighty Yorkshire.
What's happy about that?
199 all out so nil point. Our batting has been dreadful this year so wouldn't mind betting we're 30-5 at the close
Free scones for all if they get less than 200.
And they did.
I learnt today that they’re going to have the ‘Hundred’ as well as, not instead of, the T20 Blast. There won’t be time for anything else will there? County Championship in the winter?
Yorkshire 103 all out. Dismal effort. Game over
Can't wait for "The 75".
We are batting. 49/1. Another solid 14 runs for Denly. Read a stat on ESPN that he had already played and missed 67 times this series before today. Class player.
Another 50 for Root but no century again.
His conversation rate to turn 50s into 100s must be awful !
185/6...same old, same old...
EDIT - Curran out but a no-ball so still ....for 5.
Another rancid performance with the bat. Poor application and poor technique.
Some of the shots to get out have been awful. Burns, Stokes and Curran have got out in a stupid way. Root got another unplayable delivery but had been dropped three times!
On a side note, I told You Yorkshire's batting was terrible @Keighley
Least Buttler found some runs ..
Good batting wicket though so Smith might get 200 again .
294 all out then .
How many will Smith get ?
England have taken two wickets already, they're on top! Oh hold on, Smith's in, game over then.
Don't be so negative. I reckon he'll flop today and only get a century.
What will happen is he'll either get a nick that is dropped or pop one up in the air between two fielders, and then he'll go and get his century/double hundred, triple hundred (delete as appropriate).
Playing himself in nicely....
Smith's 10th consecutive ashes 50 brought up with a 6.
He must have nearly the highest percentage of a team's runs in a series!!
I'm going tomorrow and i'm really hoping I don't have to watch Smith bat all day.
It won't be all day. He'll have a session off in the middle while they skittle England out.
They might be all out tonight ...even with Smith's efforts .
Then we might last till after tea ..
Root drops Smith on 66.
What is Joe Root in the team for? Can't bat, can't catch, can't captain.
Shocking how far he's fallen.
Ah, the customary missed chance has now come and gone.
Archer is bowling really well this innings.
Why didn't Curran get a look in before this test? Baffling.
166-6. Still 130 behind but obviously Smith is still there
2 in 2 for Curran now
It's just bizarre. He was our best player by some distance last summer. Not bad with the bat either...
The issue is you'd have too many bowlers if Stokes is fit to bowl. However given the fact our batsmen have done so poorly with hindsight he may have been a valid pick in place of Roy. Will be interesting when Anderson is fit as he seems to determined to continue. I always thought he'd hoped to retire after winning the ashes this summer but that didn't go to plan ! At present you'd have to say Woakes position is under threat. It's 2 out of the 4 of Anderson/Broad/Curran/Woakes unless they play no spinner. Broad seems to have come back from the dead this summer.
