Match Report

Simon Kerrigan struck four times and Luke Procter and Jimmy Anderson once apiece during the third and final day of Lancashire’s friendly against Somerset at Taunton Vale today.

Kerrigan finished with 4-58 from ten overs as Somerset finished on 278-7 from 65 overs.

Lancashire declared on 208-9 this morning having advanced from 180-7, losing Jordan Clark for 35 and Stephen Parry for 24.

Clark edged Josh Davey to third slip in the first over of the day before Parry was bowled by Lewis Gregory.

Former England opener Marcus Trescothick then posted 55 for the hosts, who start their Specsavers County Championship campaign at Durham this weekend, before James Hildreth top-scored with 57 off 54 balls.

After Kerrigan’s first over of left-arm spin accounted for Tom Abell lbw just before lunch, leaving the score at 20-1 in the 13th, Trescothick and Chris Rogers, the ex-Australia Test opener, shared 85 inside 19 overs.

Rogers has taken over the captaincy from Trescothick ahead of this season, and he made 34 before miscueing a pull at Procter to Haseeb Hameed at mid-wicket – 105-2 in the 32nd.

Trescothick fell two overs later when he was run out by a direct hit from Luis Reece, in the gully region, at the non-striker’s end as the score fell to 114-3.

Lancashire’s new ball pair Anderson and Kyle Jarvis returned identical figures of 0-9 from their first six overs, including three maidens apiece.

Hildreth had reached 22 at tea, and he went on to share 53 for the fourth wicket with Jim Allenby, who was bowled shortly after tea having offered no shot to Anderson, whose strike meant Somerset were 167-4 in the 42nd over.

By the time Hildreth reached a 46-ball fifty with eleven fours in the 49th over, Somerset were within two runs of 200, but the middle order man fell shortly afterwards when Kerrigan had him lbw sweeping.

Peter Trego hit four sixes off Kerrigan, including two in an over which also included a boundary, during the final hour of play.

Roelof van der Merwe then tried, and failed, to repeat the dose.

He was caught at deep mid-wicket off Kerrigan, who then had Ryan Davies stumped by Alex Davies sweeping to leave the score at 256-7 in the 61st.

Trego finished on 47 not out, while England bowler Anderson finished with 1-35 from 12 overs.
