We have resembled Monty Python's black knight in this match.

They need to win this more than we do. Unless they are convinced they can skittle us out (and they may be, but I think not), they have to set us an achievable target. We can still win this.

80 odd overs probably, give themselves a few with the second new ball.

Not sure they have to set us anything too gettable, men around the bat and us batting for the draw still gives them plenty of chance.

Poor so far although bowlers coming under heavy fire. We don't seem to have much by way of response. Reminds me of the final day at Scarborough last season against Middlesex when an onslaught in the first hour gave them huge momentum when they bowled. Not a good start.

Oh they've declared so 335 ish in 88. I'd have batted for another 3 or 4 overs although maybe Somerset have concerns about tea time thunderstorms.

Now time for Lyth, Lees, Handscomb and Bresnan to step up.

Not impossible we can win this but don't have much faith in out batting at the moment.
Got a feeling for a draw.

Hildreth ton. Tick

Half hour smashing it about. Tick.

Yorkshire chase or defend?

That's a good declaration by Somerset. They want to win, don't want a draw. Gives a chance -- hope Bressie makes up his mind one way or t'other.
