David Hopps at Middlesex 177-7 v Somerset
You can't keep Jim Allenby out of the game. He has just taken a catch at first slip to send Middlesex seven down - Ollie Rayner dismissed by Craig Overton.
Chances come along regularly on such pitches, but dropped catches can still be costly and Somerset may regret dropping George Bailey immediately after lunch off Allenby. Alex Barrow was the culprit. He has had a scruffy game. Ryan Davies, signed in the close season from Kent, is unavailable for selection for personal reasons.
