Somerset v Glamorgan, Bob Willis Trophy Central Group August 1 - 4 2020

Pick your team for the opener on Saturday .... please show your workings!


  • After the friendly against Gloucestershire and given that Bess, Leach, Banton and Gregory are unavailable I would go for:

    Batsmen (6)

    Byrom, Abell, Hildreth, Davies (WK) and Bartlett pick themselves - then either Green or Lammonby to open with Byrom - probably go with Lammonby as he gives us another seam bowling option

    Spinner (1)


    Seamers (4)

    Options are:

    Davey, COVE, JOVE, Brooks, Gilchrist

    Difficult one except that Davey and COVE must be certainties - I would be tempted to leave out Brooks (JOVE's extra pace & Gilchrist has impressed in the friendly)

  • David - that would be my preferred team as well. Nathan Gilchrist did impress in the game v Gloucester and Tom Lammonby’s bowling gives him the edge over Ben Green

  • My XI for tomorrow

    Byrom, Lammonby, Abell (c), Hildreth, Bartlett, Davies (w), van der Merwe, C Overton, J Overton, Davey, Brooks

  • A day overshadowed by the imminent departure of Jamie Overton ended up far better than anyone could have expected and puts us in a very strong position going into day two

  • How confident is everyone feeling ahead of the fourth day? Win by lunch, by tea?

  • I think we will win inside the first session with Jamie O taking a five for, just to rub in how much we will miss him!!!

  • Brendon - you'll get a mention in the match report though - some consolation!
