All done for 203. A little bit of resistance at the end.

Should get a better day in Taunton. Probably nowhere near a full days play though.

Looks like Essex could be heading for the Championship title by default.

Not much play if any expected today down in Zummarzet, according to latest reports.

It's looking like Essex will win the league as long as they don't lose 20 wickets in one day :scarfer:

Day 3 starting to look like a washout, Essex still 20 wickets in hand and Somerset my luvver only batted once.

It'd be an incredible day 4 if the apple crunchers won it from here.

What's the weather meant to be like there tomorrow?

As much as I want Essex to win, it's a shame we never got what would have been a thrilling game.

Agreed Smuts, I know it's won over a season but do feel a little cheated, winner takes all games are what sport is all about.

Tomorrow doesn't look much better weather wise, dry 9-13ish, so 2 hours play max if they are ready to go at 11 (and the weather is correct)

36-1 (Brown gone for 18) but we're off due to rain again. No chance of Somerset winning this now.

Well Somerset are still going - they might as well call it, there's no way they're going to get 19 wickets plus maybe bat again in the rest of today.
