VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Ahead of the match, Jason Kerr said: “The Combined XI will feature players from the Essex and Worcestershire squads. There will also be some players from the United Arab Emirates, so the team will be of a good standard.
“Although it’s a combined team, they are professional cricketers that we are playing against. It will still be a test for the guys and another chance for us to make sure that our skills are up to speed.
“There will be the opportunity for some of the guys who haven’t really featured on this tour so far to show what they can do, and that’s exciting. Hopefully it’s an opportunity that they will make the most of. It will give me the chance to see some of the younger players in a pressure situation.”
Somerset’s next pre-season match begins on Tuesday March 19th when we take on Warwickshire in a three-day match.Back to News
