Wicketkeeper/batsman Steve Davies provides us with an update from the Somerset camp, in his latest column for the County Gazette...

IT’S safe to say that we are all pretty pleased with the season so far.

The guys have been outstanding in the Bob Willis Trophy and if it wasn’t for the good old English weather, we would probably have a 100 per cent record.

To have to settle for a draw at Warwickshire after comprehensively outplaying them was incredibly frustrating, but that is part and parcel of the game.

The key was to make sure that we took as many points as possible from the next game against Gloucestershire and we certainly did that.

It looked for a while like the weather might deprive us of a deserved win once again, but thankfully we got over the line in some style.

There were some sensational performances in that game against Gloucestershire.

George Bartlett’s hundred was a joy to watch and to see the two Toms [Abell and Lammonby] get three figures in the second innings was also pretty special.

For Tom Lammonby to get a first hundred, a first wicket and to finish the match with a great catch is the stuff that dreams are made of!

The bowlers were different class again, and I feel pretty lucky to have a front row seat as they go about their business.

After the game, Chris Dent said that our guys are probably the best attack in the country, and you can’t really argue with that at the moment.

That win sets up a big game against Worcestershire next week, and we will be going all out to win that game and top the group.

To win this competition would be extremely special, and would be a great reward for our members and supporters who we are missing so much.

The Vitality Blast is now under way and, after a frustrating start, we had our first home game on Tuesday night.

Once again, the bowlers (and Ben Green’s moustache) were absolutely top drawer.

It’s great to see Greener and Ollie Sale out on the park showing what they do, and especially pleasing for Ollie who has had so many injury issues.

Tom Abell’s innings in that game was absolute class. He never tried to smash the leather off the ball and it is one of the best controlled T20 innings I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing.

You can’t underestimate the role that Hildy [James Hildreth] played either. He kept the scoreboard ticking over and never let the fielders settle.

The mood in the camp is great at the moment and, when you think that we still have Tom Banton, Babar Azam and Lewis Gregory to come back, this team could well go on and achieve something pretty special.
