Rashid's poor form with the bat continues, 6 down at home but no need to despair yet, as Brooks still has to bat.

This is a mess, 175 from here would be a reasonable score

Hodd back to his best, very poor effort from our batsmen thus far, but credit to the Somerset attack who have utterly dominated the session.

Think if we can limp to 150 all out I would settle for that.
Really need our lower order to get us out of the s*** first with bat and then with the ball.

Rashid has not batted in any cricket since the T20 final, having been dragged around the country in the Test Squad before then. No wonder his form has fallen off in the second half of the season.

True, but is a wonder as to why he's batting above Bresnan.

I agree - being in and out of the test/ODI squad where your role is very much as a bowler must be unsettling, but I wonder if he is just practicing his bowling more and his batting less these days - when with England, or as his bowling improves his batting becomes less of a strong suit. Either way it would probably make more sense to play him below Bresnan.

Agree with that- the fact that Rashid has barely batted for weeks is precisely why Bresnan should be batting ahead of him.

Not a good start to say the least anyway. I hope it's doing a bit: Jim Allenby shouldn't be ripping through us if it's not...

At least Middlesex have lost a wicket now.

We like to say don't judge a track til both sides have batted. Maybe the pitch inspectors will need to visit later....

And I bet we get docked points where Somerset didn't!
