Jamie Overton made the breakthrough for Somerset

The in-form opening pair of Chris Rogers and Sam Robson looked well set to build another big partnership after being put in this morning but Overton struck to remove the latter for 42 in the 24th over.

Rogers (43 not out) remained in place at lunch with Joe Denly (four not out) with him at the crease.

Nottinghamshire were 59 for two at the lunch interval of their match against Surrey at Trent Bridge.

Alex Hales fell to Jade Dernbach for just four but Michael Lumb and Ed Cowan combined to guide Notts past 50.

Cowan (15) fell two overs before lunch leaving Lumb (29no) and James Taylor (four not out).

There was no play possible in the game between Warwickshire and Yorkshire at Edgbaston.
