Today they have done just that - and in style. At one point the visitors lost five wickets for no runs.
What a way to avoid relegation!

Somerset County Cricket Club has announced fast bowler Alfonso Thomas, who has taken over 550 wickets for the County will be leaving the club at the end of the 2015 season.
The 38 year old first joined Somerset prior to the start of the 2008 season and following a number of impressive performances for the Seconds early on, he made his First XI debut after which he became a regular member of the line up in all formats.
Alfonso has enjoyed many highlights in his career both for Somerset and indeed around the world.
His best season for Somerset was in 2010 during which he took in excess of 100 wickets and was presented with the ‘Player of the Year Award’ something he went on to win for the second time after the conclusion of the 2014 season.
He has led Somerset on numerous occasions in Marcus Trescothick’s absence, most memorably during Somerset’ remarkable run in the Champions League T20 in 2011 when they reached the semi-final stage.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my career at Somerset and extend huge thanks to Brian Rose who believed in me some years ago and asked me to join the Club. I wish my teammates and Club all the best for the future.
It’s been great fun but like all good things they eventually come to an end. I am intending to remain in cricket, either continuing to play or by making the transition into coaching – it was a great privilege to be asked by Gary Kirsten to work with his bowlers during the IPL in India this year that I really enjoyed.
I plan to take a few weeks over the off season to consider several alternative options before deciding exactly which path to take. I hope that at some point in the future I will get the opportunity to be involved in the Club in some capacity.
I've had fantastic support from the supporters over the years and would like them to know that it has always been greatly appreciated.

We wish him well in his future career and he will continue to help the club in the future as a consultant.
