".....Yorkshire, fresh off a Roses Championship win inside three days at Headingley at the weekend, travel to Taunton on Friday to tackle struggling Somerset looking for a third win in six matches this season.

Coach Andrew Gale will almost certainly name a second spinner in his squad, Karl Carver, who will miss Thursday’s second-team one-day Trophy final against Middlesex at Headingley as a result.

“It will be a different challenge to what we’ve had before,” accepted Gale. “You would expect a spinner’s track given what’s happened down there recently.”

Two questions

Who do we leave out from the first team to play Carver?

Which spinner plays for the second X1 on Thursday?

Possibly Brooks to answer the first question.

No idea for the second question.

Disappointed with Breast. He should get his priorities right. Nothing is more important than cricket. Laughing.

It will be a very long tail with Hodd at 6 then 5 bowlers (Brooks, Rafiq, Carver, Siddy, Coad or Patto).

Does Waite get a look in at 7, instead of Coad/Patto/Fisher? Is his bowling good enough?

We seem to forget Brooks scored a ton only last game but one.....

In current form we may not miss Bresnan as much as before. Fourth seamer at Taunton must be a thankless role anyway.

Waite gives depth to the batting so I'd pick him and have him as fourth seamer. Siddy Good Brooks and Coad plus Rafiq for me

Waite at 7 is possible. It strengthens the batting, but weakens the bowling.

Another problem is the match v Surrey. We already have 5 of our best white-ball players missing, are we also going to be without Tim & Coad as well??

A team of Lyth, Lees, Hanscombe, Ballance, Leaning, Waite, Rhodes, Rafiq, Carver, Patterson, & Fisher, will not give Surrey to many problems.

I'm sure Waite will come in for Bres.

Carver for Brooks,a 'Taunton only' pick. If Coad is unfit, Patto returns.

Bres is a massive loss, a real body blow.

Coad is learning quickly if he's picked up a niggle on the eve of a trip to Taunton.

Last season Patto had 27.2 - 8 - 80 - 2, with no luck whatsoever, Brooks 25 - 2 - 106 - 0, and Plunkett 19 - 1 - 87 - 0, in a score of 562 for 7.

Two years ago Patto had 23 - 10 - 70 - 5 in a score of 485.

Horses for courses? Absolute no-brainer if Coad unfit.
Bowlers win matches
