Second XI: Somerset v Glamorgan T20 x 2


Somerset won the toss and elected to bat first in game two but quickly found themselves in trouble again with the Glamorgan bowlers picking up regular wickets. It was Dom Bess who provided the fireworks this time round. Coming in at 51/4 he quickly took the attack to the visitors and crunched 9 fours and a six. He was finally dismissed in the final over for an excellent 72 from 47 balls.

The Glamorgan run-chase was again impressive, and they chased down the score comfortably to win by 8 wickets. They win both matches here in Taunton today

After winning the toss and electing to bat, it was Tom Banton who got Somerset off to a flying start. Despite the loss of Byrom and Trenouth cheaply, Banton quickly settled and plundered the Glamorgan bowlers to all parts at Taunton Vale. He was eventually fifth man out, when he ran himself out after scoring a remarkable 94 from 48 balls with 10 fours and five sixes.

Despite Dom Bess chipping in with 17 from 21 balls, the other Somerset batsmen could not match Banton’s fireworks and they ended with 170/8 from 20 overs.

Glamorgan started well in the run chase and despite the loss of Lawlor in the 3rd over, they stroked the ball around nicely and looked in control of the match. Somerset dragged themselves back into the contest as Paul van Meekeren (2/24 from 4) and Dom Bess (1/31 from 4) stood out for the hosts. From the final 3 overs Glamorgan needed 25 and a couple of wickets gave Somerset hope but it was the visitors who took game one by 5 wickets, reaching their target with 3 balls to spare.
