Paul Edwards at Lancashire 463 v Somerset 5-0
If the weather holds, and I think it will, we could be set for a terrific finish here. Lancashire lost their last three wickets for seven runs in 14 balls and now Somerset need 295 in 77 overs. It is nothing like as generous a target as Lancashire would have set and Lancashire may be the beneficiaries of that.
One other thing I would like to do while it is fresh in my mind, although I will mention it again, is recommend a new book, Cricketing Allsorts, which is edited by Jo Harman. This is a series of odd facts, strange lists and other serendipitous information. They've subtitled it "the good, the bad and the ugly" but it is even better than that. I'm dipping into it every day and I recommend others do the same. I hope no one minds me giving this one a plug.
Anyway Somerset have scored five runs off five overs from Jimmy Anderson and Kyle Jarvis and battle has been joined.
