Somerset win by 31 runs.Like the Monty Python mob's "Black Knight", Warwicks are not beaten yet...closed on 131/8 after being 61/8 chasing 184.
Clarke & Wright 70 unbroken - best stand of match by far.
No points deduction for a sub-standard pitch.
All due to bad batting.
As I've posted elsewhere, incredible!
Maybe Somerset won't get away with the pitch after all, this has just been posted on the BBC site:
"Somerset's victory could still be subject to investigation by the England and Wales Cricket Board, who had pitch liaison officer Phil Whitticase present after 21 wickets fell on the first day on a used pitch.
Of the 40 wickets in the match, 22 fell to spin, of which home spinners Leach (8-90) and Championship debutant Bess (8-59) took 16 between them, Warwickshire's Jeetan Patel taking the other six."
