SOMERSET begin a four day LV= County Championship game against defending champions Durham at the County Ground today.

The teams have already met in the championship this season when the match ended in a draw at Chester-le-Street.

Unfortunately the Cidermen will be without the in-form Lewis Gregory who injured his hamstring while batting in yesterday's T20 Blast defeat by Surrey.

Those already ruled out are Steve Kirby, Craig Meschede and Adam Dibble.
