After seeing his side beat Yorkshire Phoenix at Bath, Somerset Coach, Kevin Shine, described the catch taken by Keith Dutch as: "the best catch that I have ever seen, it could be the one moment that could change the season for us."
Regarding Peter Bowler's innings he said: "it's the best I've seen him play in one-day cricket. With an average of 47 in the CricInfo Championship, he's in the zone at the moment ."
The coach was also full of praise for Mark Lathwell, who after being unbeaten on 98 in the Championship match hit a cameo 27 on Sunday. "'Lathers' was a pleasure to watch out there," he said. "He was really up for it today and hit every bad ball."
As far as the coach was concerned "the best thing that came out of the Bath Festival was that we scored runs."
