Just 37 balls possible on day two

Jonathan Trott completed an 82-ball half-century as only 6.1 overs were possible on the second day of Somerset’s Specsavers¬†County Championship match with Warwickshire at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

No play was possible until after lunch as the groundstaff’s mopping up operation from the previous day’s deluge was hampered by early afternoon showers.

Umpires Alex Wharf and Paul Baldwin originally decided play could commence at 1.10pm. Unfortunately as that time approached the rain returned and the heavy covers were brought back on.

Finally, the action did get underway at 2.45pm, with Warwickshire resuming on 93 for three and Trott unbeaten on 30.

After Jack Leach had delivered one ball to complete his unfinished over from day one, the Overton twins took up the attack for Somerset.

Craig bowled a testing first over from the Somerset Pavilion End and Jamie had a big appeal for lbw against Trott rejected with his first delivery of the day.

Trottt had just moved to 50 when bad light forced the players off. More rain followed and the umpires abandoned any prospect of a resumption at 5pm.
