Match Notes

  • Rain halts torrent of runs

    Only 18.4 overs were possible on the third day of a match in which 906 runs have now been scored for the loss of just five wickets

  • Goodwin triple leads Taunton run-fest

    So many achievements were notched up that the talk was not so much of records broken but what to do about a Taunton square on which run-scoring has become even easier than in past seasons

  • Nash cashes in against favourite foes

    Twice this season Chris Nash has achieved career-best scores - and twice he has done so against Somerset
