Somerset cricketers in T20 local derby

This summer's T20 Blast cricket competition is underway this evening for Somerset against south west neighbours Gloucestershire.

Captain Marcus Trescothick and his team are determined to make a positive start to the competition in which they've finished runners-up in three of the last five years.

It's also the last trophy the Cidermen won in 2005.

Nick Compton and Dave Nosworthy, the Director of Cricket, say they're out to win but their local rivals are tough competition.
