David Hopps at Somerset 98-4 v Yorkshire
I know this is a cliche, but this could be a pivotal session in Somerset's season. If you want to salvage your first division status then victory against what is essentially a second-string Yorkshire attack* (*however if the redoubtable Ryan Sidebottom ever reads that he will probably respond with a hat-trick) is a good way to start.
Things began badly when Somerset, three down for not many overnight, lost James Hildreth lbw to Steve Patterson, a sleep-in-the-eyes early morning leave alone whereupon he was struck on the back leg by a straight one.
But Steve Davies and Lewis Gregory have gambolled along since then. Gregory is in form; Davies is due - he hasn't had meaningful runs since pre-season and both are playing crisply against some moderate bowling.
Azeem Rafiq's offspin has been particularly vulnerable - and Yorkshire have two spinners in this match. If Jack Leach and Domn Bess outbowl them it might be Somerset's escape route. Yorkshire have lost three and drawn four of their last seven matches in Taunton, so this is not a happy hunting ground for them.
There is a half-cecent, convivial crowd in, and the weather looks pretty settled.
