  • Langer and Kieswetter save Somerset

    For the second match running Durham couldn't force home a victory chance on the final day as Somerset's strong batting order resisted impressively at Taunton

  • Trescothick and rain aid Somerset

    Somerset were given a helping hand in their quest to secure a face-saving draw against Durham as rain allowed just 24 overs on the third day

  • Onions has a day to remember

    Graham Onions had one of those days cricketers dream of as he celebrated his England call-up with 6 for 31 as Somerset were skittled for 69 on the second day at Taunton

  • Benkenstein makes Somerset pay

    For the neutral it would have been ideal to watch Steve Harmison bowl on a green-tinged Taunton surface, but there was no final opportunity for him to nudge the England selectors as Durham reached 372 for 6
