Waters restricts Somerset after Lett hits fifty on debut

Division Two

Huw Waters's four wickets and a slick display from Glamorgan in the field helped restrict Somerset to 255 for 8 on the first day at Taunton. Choosing to field and take advantage of any early moisture in the pitch, Glamorgan lost their opening bowler David Harrison who, in his third over, limped off the pitch with a thigh injury. But Steve Watkins and Waters chipped away at Somerset all day; indeed the only notable innings from the home side came from Robin Lett, the 19-year-old right hander who made exactly 50 on debut. There were a pair of 40s from Keith Parsons and Will Durston before bad light stopped play.
