Somerset won the toss and are batting with a spin dominant team including Leach, Bess and now van der Merwe as Groenewald and another seamer make way.

Wonder what sort of a track it is at Taunton.

Would laugh my head off if they get a two day win and then the pitch inspector docks them points but suspect the pitch inspector appointed by Strauss will be Mike Gatting.

slightly concerned about this.

We cannot afford for somerset to get maximum batting points.

It will not turn yet, but they have picked three spinners (as have Notts), so you can bet you last dollar it will.

Yes Somerset powering ahead, Middlesex stalling somewhat.

So much for Stu's prediction that Somerset would produce a bowler-friendly wicket, or are you now going to suggest that Somerset just happen to be batting really well on a contrived results pitch?! Somerset 185 for 2 at time of typing.

Think we need to wait and see how Notts bat before we come to any conclusions on the Taunton wicket. A bowler-friendly wicket still needs good bowlers to exploit it
