BBC says the match is suspended - not sure why but there is still hope.

Somerset are giving the Tykes a spanking - which is nice :)

It is, but I think we have a bit more to worry about at the other end of the table, after our good start to the season..

It's looking a bit bleak in our last run out of the season. Needing 11 points for guaranteed safety we're 39-4 in reply to 219 by Warwicks. If we lose to Warwicks and they go above us, Hants have hit 411 against Durham, we could be in real trouble.

There's always a chance of rain... but not much. Weather tends to kill our hopes one way or another.

We were bowled out for 152 - RSP about 40 minutes ago.

They'll have 1 point batting and 3 points bowling. We'll have 3 points bowling...we could do with it raining in Warwickshire for another two days...

Durham digging in which could just come to save us. Going to be bloody tight at both ends of the table though. Looking forward to following it over the next day and a half

Do Hampshire have to win if we lose or will a draw be good enough for them?

If we lose, hants have to win to stay up. We go down at their expense.
If we draw/win, a draw will put hants above Warwickshire and they will go down

At the top of the table the winner of Middlesex and Yorkshire wins the league. If that's a draw, Somerset win.

All set for an intriguing last day!

After a tremendous start to our season it went badly awry. Thankfully we've scraped our way out of it.
