Who’s playing where this winter?
With the distinctly un-cricket weather now closing in, it’s time to start wrapping up warm and dusting off those umbrellas. Not so for several of the Somerset squad!
A number of players will be plying their trade abroad this winter and you can keep up to date with everything that they are getting up to on the field via this website.
