I went along to the Somerset county ground in Taunton watch England take on South Africa in the 2nd of three T20 games. The Local lad Jos Buttler made his second return to the ground since leaving Somerset for Lancashire back in 2014 and he got a warm reception from the home crowd. The twitter users who added the hashtag #EngvSA during the game had their tweeted photos put up on the grounds digital scoreboard.

Jason Roy was the only batsmen on the day to get to a half century.

Eoin Morgan catching AB de Villiers who was just 4 runs away from his own half century.

South Africa won the game by three-run.


County Cricket

I went into the county ground in Taunton to watch Somerset v Nottinghamshire on Monday afternoon, it was the second day of a four day county championship match. The game concluded today with a win for Somerset by 2 wickets.


The new stand was having work done on it as the cricket was being play. This new devlopment has taken the place of the Old Pavilion, built back in 1881.
