    Yorkshire manage the opposite of being hit amidships. Oh and we defended 147 despite the first Durham wicket getting almost half way to the target...

    Coincidentally, I've just seen my first positive comment regarding The Hundred from someone without an interest in It. It was from a Surrey fan who was looking forward to The Oval hosting the final on a ticket-hunting group I'm in on Facebook. A lot of the people there are "big event" junkies rather than sports fans per se which is probably the target audience.

    I pointed out out that the whole farce was cricket's Brexit.

    Both the ECB and Cricinfo now have Somerset on 186, or 16 points more than they had yesterday, so I am guessing that the tables included first inning points at the end of that innings.

    This is one of the many ways in which I hope the whole misadventure comes unstuck

    You should not assume that fans of counties that host a side in the Hundred are in some way in favour. (a) because it;s a fucking stupid idea, and (b) because it's not county related, but city. While I could get behind a Yorkshire who played nearly all their matches in Leeds, I'm fucked if I'm supporting a team called Leeds

    I have never been able to get a firm grasp on the points system.

    It's only 5 bonus points for Somerset, plus 16 if they win.

    I am desperately afraid that this will jinx them, but is it 22 points if Somerset win (16 plus 3 batting plus 3 bowling)?

    Cheers. It's annoying that they don't just tell you!

    Thought when Banton went that made Warks favourites, but Bess has gone off nicely.

    I think the BBC put the batting and bowling points in once they are earned, i.e. Somerset's should be included in the above.

    So if they lose to Warks then Yorkshire have closed the gap to 14 points to second. Somerset would get 5 for a draw, 16 for a win and (I suppose it's still on the table) 8 for a tie.

    Fourth wicket goes, Babar Azam, Somerset now 139/4 and 119 more needed. The Azam-Banton partnership had looked unbeatable but Garrett gets the breakthrough with an lbw.

    Not quite - two more needed at lunch.

    Somerset are 89/3 and need another 169.

    To be honest, the way Notts are playing this season, it'll be all over by lunchtime.

    Somerset will start the final day on 8/0 at Warks, needing another 250 to win.

    Yorkshire are six wickets away from beating Notts.

    Fantastic, almost unbelievable, day's play and comeback.

    Well, not really. Stevens seemed to have Wheater LBW but it wasn't given. But Wheater immediately after like he'd been grievously injured somehow. He's looking OK since.
