Cricket: Somerset's biggest match underway

Somerset win the toss

Somerset have won the toss and chosen to bat in one of the biggest matches in the club's history.

Victory against Nottinghamshire in the 4 day county championship match at Taunton could see the cider county win the league title for the first time in the club's history. Middlesex are playing Yorkshire at Lords with both of those sides also in contention to win the title.

Somerset need to win and then hope the other game finishes as a draw or Yorkshire win with less bonus points than Somerset achieve.


All on last game for Somerset County

League leaders Middlesex have drawn their game against Lancashire today which means the outcome of the County Championship will go down to the last round of matches starting next Tuesday.

Somerset still have the chance to win the Championship for the first time in their history after beating Yorkshire by 10 wickets in their penultimate match.

The cider county are in 3rd place just ten points behind leaders Middlesex and just one point behind 2nd place Yorkshire.

Those two sides play each other at Lords while Somerset host Nottinghamshire in Taunton.

If the meeting of the top two ends in a draw and Somerset win then Somerset will almost certainly be champions of England.
