Your 2024 Live Stream Commentary Team


In association with Vertu Motors and WPA Health Insurance, Somerset County Cricket Club can today announce who will make up the commentary team for our award-winning live stream in 2024.

The SCCC free stream was initially piloted in July 2017, and since that moment has gone from strength to strength, adding a vital matchday element to those within the Cooper Associates County Ground as well as to those watching at home and on the move!

2024 will once again see our dedicated commentary team providing unique insight into all the action as it unfolds.

The 2024 line up features several familiar faces, including:
