13:05 – Lunch Report
Surrey have enjoyed a profitable morning on day two of their Specsavers’ County Championship game against Somerset, at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.
Having added another 28 runs to their overnight total of 236 for 8, they quickly reduced Somerset to 61 for 3 at lunch.
Ben Foakes was the first Surrey wicket to fall this morning, bowled by an unplayable delivery from Craig Overton, for 31 at 255 for 9. Overton then took a smart catch at third slip off the bowling of Tim Groenewald to dismiss Stuart Meaker, for one.
In reply, Somerset made a decent start before losing three wickets for just seven runs inside three overs.
Tom Abell (25) was trapped leg before by Meaker at 46 for 1 before Trescothick (12) departed an over later, lbw to captain Gareth Batty. Then, in the very next over, Meaker bowled James Hildreth for 5, at 53 for 3.
