Olly Hannon-Dalby took three wickets in the final five overs – including two wickets in two balls – as the Bears took complete control on the second day of the Vitality County Championship Division One match with Somerset at Taunton. With an old ball and strong LBW shouts dismissed, the Bears would be forgiven for their heads dropping late in the day, after Tom Banton and Tom Abell rescued the hosts, but the senior bowler in the ranks thrusted all the momentum to visitors. Banton and Abell came together with the home side 57 for three in their first innings, trailing by 355 runs, and produced a patient stand of 139, Banton making 77 and Abell 61 not out, before those three late wickets saw Somerset stumble to stumps on 208 for six, Oliver Hannon-Dalby claiming four for 45.
