Finally, Tres touches one. Coad very well deserved wicket.

Really disheartening to hear Plunkett now gone off injured.
Combination of bad batting, bowling at times and bad luck costing us this game.

According to Cally, Plunkett is "sore in the groin area" and is being assessed.

Who would have thought, in March, that with our 'strength in depth' seamers of Sidebottom, Brooks, Patterson, Plunkett, Willey, Bresnan, we would by July be depending on Ben Coad and Harry Brook as strike bowlers?

And that our new captain would be playing for England again.

Much easier to bat now, ball older. Current pair accelerating. Rash not come off, so down to Bres, Coad and Brook. Someone is going to have to bat very well. If Somerset don't win this time they might as well give up.

5 of the bowlers that you have mentioned are in their 30s. One due to retire this season. The old guard will have to be changed soon. Hopefully Ryan will stay at the club in a coaching capacity and help with this transition.

And how long do we think they will want to bat? Do they bat us out of the game but in so doing reduce the overs they can bowl, or assume that we will be brittle and get a bowling spell in this evening?

On the one hand, Somerset have come into the game with youngsters and old lags who were out of form (Tresco and Hildreth) - a bit like us, so they may think that we will do better second time round as they have done. On the other hand, we are two bowlers down, so they may feel that things have been easier for them than they might otherwise have been.

Time will tell
