Match Notes

  • Somerset happy to 'bully' India

    Somerset believe they have played an important part in giving England a head start to the Test series against India after being able to "bully" India for three days in Taunton

  • Strauss shines as Somerset dominate in draw

    Andrew Strauss and Peter Trego ensured that India were left with precious little to take from Taunton other than Suresh Raina's 103 earlier on the final day

  • Laxman confident despite limited preparation time

    VVS Laxman is unconcerned about India's limited preparation time in England before the first Test and has backed the team to continue their much-improved overseas performance of the past 10 years

  • Willoughby leaves Indians in tatters

    India's difficult preparations ahead of the first Test continued as their big-name batting order stumbled against Charl Willoughby after watching Somerset pile up 425 for 3

  • Somerset cash in after Strauss finds form

    Andrew Strauss warmed up for next week's first Test by taking the early honours at the start of the head-to-head with Zaheer Khan on his guest appearance for Somerset
