Second XI T20: Mixed fortunes for Somerset

There were mixed fortunes for Somerset Second XI in their T20 double header against Glamorgan at Newport Cricket Club.

Second XI coach Greg Kennis named the following team for the matches:

Tom Banton, Johann Myburgh, Tim Rouse, Ollie Sale, Paul van Meekeren, Max Waller, Fin Trenouth, Tom Lammonby, Ben Wells, Nathan Gilchrist and Louis Shaw.

MATCH ONE

Somerset won the toss and elected to bat.

Openers Johann Myburgh and Tom Banton put on 66 for the first wicket. Myburgh was the man to go for 22 but Tom Banton reached his half century before being dismissed on 56 to leave Somerset on 88 for two.

Ben Wells added 25 but Tom Lammonby (19) was the only other batsman to reach double figures as Somerset posted a total of 156 for eight from their 20 overs.

Paul van Meekeren made an early breakthrough when Aneurin Donald was caught by Johann Myburgh with Glamorgan on 15.

When former Somerset all-rounder Craig Meschede was caught by Max Waller off the bowling of Louis Shaw the hosts were 59 for two. Just ten runs later Jeremy Lawlor was trapped lbw by Waller but 50 from Connor Brown plus 32 not out from Callum Taylor saw Glamorgan reach their required total as they won by six wickets.

MATCH TWO

Somerset won the toss and elected to bat.

Johann Myburgh (43 from 23 balls) and Tom Banton (72 from 40 balls) set Somerset on the way to a competitive total but once again, no other batsman reached 20 as the visitors posted a total of 200 for six.

Opener Sam Pearce (68) was the standout performer for the home side but tight and clever bowling from Somerset meant that Glamorgan were always struggling to keep up with the required rate as wickets fell regularly.

Max Waller and Nathan Gilchrist both claimed three wickets as Glamorgan were restricted to 186 for nine as Somerset won by 14 runs.
