DAY ONE REPORT
After beginning at 4:30pm due to rain and a wet outfield, Somerset finally got underway against Gloucestershire at Taunton Vale. Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to field on a pitch with plenty of green on it, but openers Steve Davies and Andy Umeed started solidly until Davies was bowled by Matt Taylor from the last ball of the 11th over. A bright partnership of 43 was ended which brought Tom Abell to the crease, but the 1st XI skipper didn’t last long – bowled by former teammate Paul van Meekeren playing no shot for 2.
Umeed looked in good touch and passed 50 in 81 balls, including 5 boundaries. At the close, Somerset had reached 112/2 from the 28 overs possible.
