Yeah, impressive win, well deserved on the day. Stupid scheduling; Hampshire fans conflicted with an England match at the Ageas, and the ECB's scheduling was awful; they should've known about the ICC cut off date; if not Hampshire with Vince and Dawson, it could easily have been Lancashire losing Buttler, Notts losing Hales, etc.
On the actual match front, I don't get why Hants batted first. I know we've set totals over 300 every time this season, but with Berg at 6 starting the lengthy tail and Somerset's quality bowling line up, that was a huge risk. If batting first, surely you'd include Taylor/Holland instead of Wood, for some extra batting. Ah well. Somerset fantastic on the day and the likes of Hildreth, Trego etc deserve a win after so so many silver medals.
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
