Yorkshire v Somerset LV=CC Match Preview
Somerset are in LV=County Championship action at Headingley on Tuesday when they face table toppers Yorkshire in a game from which they will be looking for as many points as possible to continue their climb away from the relegation zone in Division One.
When the two sides met in Taunton in May this year the game resulted in a high scoring draw from which Yorkshire took 13 points compared to Somerset’s tally of 12.
Looking ahead to the game Director of Cricket Matt Maynard said: “The boys will take a lot of confidence from their last game against Worcestershire and as long as we maintain the level of intensity that we did against them then we should put in a good performance.
“The two days we played against Worcestershire before it rained were spot on. We saw off the new ball well with Tres and Coops and they set it up well for the middle order. To be fair James Hildreth played a brilliant innings with both Trego’s knock and Jim’s half century there in the middle.
“I was delighted with the way that the game went and it was just a shame about the weather that potentially lost us 11 points. Overall I was highly delighted with that performance.”
Matt added: “Yorkshire will welcome back a number of their England players and will be very strong and it will be a really good test for us.”
The Somerset squad who will travel to Leeds on Monday morning is Marcus Trescothick (c), Tom Abell, Jim Allenby, Tom Cooper, Lewis Gregory, Tim Groenewald, James Hildreth, Jack Leach, Johann Myburgh, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton, Luke Ronchi (wk) and Pete Trego.
