Second XI T20: Somerset v Middlesex

2nd XI

Somerset Second XI are in T20 action today when they play two matches against their Middlesex counterparts at Taunton Vale Sports Club.

For the first match Somerset won the toss and elected to bat.

The home side lost a number of early wickets but an unbeaten 56 from Roelof van der Merwe and a quick-fire 25 from Michael Leask steered Somerset to a competitive total of 158 for eight.

Unfortunately for Somerset visiting skipper Stephen Eskinazi was in fine form and blasted his way to 62 from 44 balls.  He was well supported by Ryan Higgins who made 47 as Middlesex reached their target for the loss of three wickets.
