County cricket: Somerset v Essex title decider, day three rain delay – live!
Something to listen to in your lunch hour.The Spin podcast hits Taunton – @em_john, @norcrosscricket, @Vitu_E are joined by Marcus Trescothick and Jack Leach https://t.co/keYZDJ1uXG 12.51pm BST
8 Back in 1980, Botham scored 228 against Gloucester, 180 odd between lunch & tea. Does Vic have any memories of this rather speedy innings?
I was playing, I’m sure I enjoyed the innings, but my main memory is that we failed to win and Zaheer caressed me all around Taunton while saving the game for Gloucester.
