No play possible on Day 1 in Taunton - Kia Oval Skip to main content

There was no play possible on the first day of Surrey’s LV= County Championship match with Somerset at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton.

Persistent rain throughout Wednesday night and Thursday morning had saturated the ground even before the scheduled start of play. It continued throughout the day, leaving a number of large puddles on the outfield.

Both sides will return in the morning in the hope of better weather for long enough for the outfield to recover.

Should there be play, a live stream of every ball of the match will be provided by our hosts and shared on with regular updates across social media.
