This week Ben Green was the stand out performer among the Somerset players who are spending their winter in Australia.
The 21-year-old, who is playing Premier Grade cricket for Gosnells Cricket Club in Western Australia, opened the bowling against Perth CC in the two-day game on Saturday.
He sent down 26 overs, seven of which were maidens, and claimed four for 105 to help dismiss Perth for 379 in 87.2 overs.
Somerset Club Captain, Tom Abell claimed two for 38 from his 14 overs for Fremantle as they dismissed Rockingham for 199.
Tom Banton, who is spending the winter with South Perth, spent the day in the field claiming one catch as University were dismissed for 310.
Neither Tim Rouse nor Ollie Sale were playing at the weekend.
Lewis Gregory and Jamie Overton were named in the England Lions team that faced India ‘A’ in the third ODI in Trivandrum.
Somerset’s Vitality Blast Captain dismissed captain Ajinkya Rahane with the first ball of the match, as the batsman shouldered arms to an off-cutter and was given out LBW. He eventually finished with figures of two for 25 from eight overs.
Jamie then caught the eye and picked up three wickets for 34 runs from his 7.1 overs as India ‘A’ were all out for 172 from 47.1 overs.
However, the Lions were dismissed for 112 from 30.5 overs as India ‘A’ won by 60 runs.
The Somerset trio of Tom Lammonby, Will Smeed and Lewis Goldsworthy featured for the England Under 19s in their IT20 match against Bangladesh Under 19s. Unfortunately they were unable to prevent the Young Lions from going down to seven wicket defeat.
In South Africa, Max Waller has enjoyed continued good form in Cape Town. His side Milnerton CC won two weeks ago against Victoria, Max contributing 1/26 from 10 overs. Last weekend saw defeat for Milnerton despite figures of 2/20 from Waller in a spell of 10 overs.
Elsewhere, Western Storm’s Smriti Mandhana helped India ease to a nine-wicket win in their first ICC Women’s Championship one-day international against New Zealand in Napier.
The Western Storm opener scored her fourth ODI century and shared in a 190-run partnership with Jemimah Rodrigues in the nine-wicket win, which was achieved with 102 balls to spare.
