Chief Executive Guy Lavender said: “We are delighted with the fixture list for 2013. This year we have a later start to our home matches with a fixture against County Champions Warwickshire which is a fantastic way to open, after which we have very concentrated cricket throughout the core part of the summer.”
“Particular highlights include a four day game against Australia in June, after which its brilliant to see that all of our home T20 matches are either on a Friday evening or Sunday, which is ideal for out spectators.”
“We are delighted to have been awarded two ODI games between England Lions and Bangladesh A in late August which will be fantastic and is testament to the way that we are moving towards hosting international cricket at Taunton.”
He added: “We finish the season at home against Surrey on September 14th which is a great way to finish so all in all it’s going to be a packed out summer of cricket for our Members and Supporters to look forward to.”
