Match Notes

  • Somerset settle for security

    Somerset produced a pitch designed for a draw against Yorkshire but as their batsmen settled into the season there was scant entertainment for a somnolent Taunton crowd

  • Myburgh stiffens Somerset resistance

    Johann Myburgh does not represent Somerset's future but his innings against Yorkshire made good use of the present

  • Rashid for England? A little Bird says so

    It is five years since Adil Rashid played for England and life has not always gone easily since, but no lesser luminary than Dickie Bird, Yorkshire's president, is predicting his international days may come again

  • Lyth gets that Taunton feeling

    Adam Lyth is often overshadowed by Yorkshire's posse of young England batsmen but all that changes whenever he visits Taunton
