Following the draw at Edgbaston second eleven coach Steve Snell said: “Adam Hose and Tim Rouse both batted brilliantly in this match. After being 139 for one we lost four wickets without adding a run, which is when they came together. Adam has been in great form this season and showed once again what good a batsman he is. He is certainly pushing very hard for first team selection.
“Likewise batting at number seven Tim came in and demonstrated just what a talented a player his is. He built a partnership under pressure and himself an hose flourished out in the middle for 63 overs to help add 306 excellent runs.”
The Somerset team for the game is: Eddie Byrom, George Bartlett, Johann Myburgh, Adam Hose, Jim Allenby, Ryan Davies, Tim Rouse, Tom Banton, Michael Leask, Ben Green (captain), Josh Davey and Paul van Meekeren.
