[Updated - St George's win] With the first day complete, locals are ready and raring to go for the second day of the annual Cup Match holiday. At the Wellington Oval, Somerset is 97 and 39-1, while St George’s 188. Somerset are 52 runs in deficit with 9 second innings wickets left.
Somerset, who won the toss, elected to bat and could only muster 97 runs in their first innings as they failed to come to grips with the pace of Justin Pitcher (5-42) and Stefan Kelly (4-26).
In reply, St George’s made 188 giving them a lead on first innings of 91 runs. This lead was achieved in spite of excellent bowling performances from Somerset’s Kevin Hurdle (5-38) and Janeiro Tucker (4-7). Top scorers for St George’s were Jason Anderson (52), Lionel Cann (38) and OJ Pitcher (26).
