Sidebottom Shines But Somerset Firmly On Top
Featured News | 31st July 2009
Ryan Sidebottom took three wickets in seven balls but Somerset had the upper hand on day one at Taunton reaching 316-5 before bad light stopped play.
Woking hard to show the form that keeps him in the shop window for an Ashes recall, Sidebottom had Suppiah and Durston caught behind either side of a successful lbw claim to see of Justin Langer.
Earlier, Andre Adams induced Marcus Trescothick to edge to Ali Brown who caught low at third slip and Mark Ealham had Craig Kieswetter caught behind after he’d added 108 for the fifth wicket with Zander de Bruyn.
Trescothick’s 37 took him past 1,000 LV County Championship runs for the season. Pattinson’s missed return catch with de Bruyn on 8 was the only true missed opportunity for Notts who will resume with de Bruyn (62) and Trego (13) looking to secure maximum batting points.
