  • Compton no longer seeks perfection

    Nick Compton has vowed not to waste what he suspects might be his final opportunity to win a place in England's Test side by becoming sidetracked into another impossible search for perfection.

  • Compton survives Chapple test

    Nick Compton survived a working over by Glen Chapple as Somerset reached 87 for 3 between the showers

  • Trescothick setback casts cloud over Somerset

    On a shortened day in which Somerset took five Lancashire wickets, they also discovered that Marcus Trescothick will be out for longer than first thought

  • Rose looks to loan market to boost exposed Somerset

    On the ground where they secured their first outright championship title since 1934 just seven months ago, Lancashire enjoyed their best day of a season that has taken some time to flicker into life.

  • Overton twins compete for debut

    Somerset's twins Craig and Jamie Overton both have hopes of a championship debut against Lancashire at Taunton on Thursday - but only one of them is likely to be celebrating.
