County championship performance of the week

Somerset played Notts at home in an important game with both teams at different ends of the table. Somerset ended up winning by 132 runs. Notts failing to chase down the target of 255 being bowled out for 122. The key contributions for Somerset were Bess and Davies on the first day sharing a 100 partnership at 140-6. Bess and leaches speel when Notts were 200-2. Azhar Ali’s fighting 65 not out a brilliant book showing all of his class against Ravi Ashwin on a turning pitch. Not many can survive against this. Also, Jamie Overton leading the seam attack in this game he showed great maturity with a match figure of 5-57. Furthermore, he bowled a very hostile spell to Nash which is when he had to go off retired hurt. He with the new ball is a scary prospect. This leaves Somerset 15 points clear at the top of the table. However Notts, on the other hand, are 35 points below 7th at the bottom of the table. They really need to beat 7th placed Surrey on Saturday. This was Somerset ’s most complete performance.
