Embarrassing though this was for Somerset, bowled out for just 90 and struggling to work out why they have lost all three of their matches so far, Worcestershire can only be encouraged.
The assumption that Worcestershire will be the whipping boys of 2015 might have to be revised. After two days of impressive cricket from the yo-yo side of the County Championship, it is Somerset who face the prospect of a third consecutive defeat.
Charlie Morris reached a new milestone in a fast-developing career as Worcestershire dismissed Somerset for 250 on the opening day of the County Championship meeting between teams who each lost their first two matches of the season.
