If they get the last few wickets in an over or two, Somerset to forfeit their second innings and hope for a miracle skittling out?

16 overs to survive, considering we just lost 9 wickets for 39, it ain't over yet

You'd have to say it's impossible... but in a summer like this, who knows?

This wicket is a bloody disgrace.

I didn't want to win the championship due to rain but this wicket is downright cheating as far as I am concerned.

As above. How is this wicket allowed?

Nobody move, not long now.

Essex out for 141, Somerset forfeit their whole 2nd innings.

Essex now 28/0 chasing 62 for the win.

Looks like pitch is an absolute minefield judging by commentary?

Somerset bringing in Trescothick for the last three overs... think that means they've finally conceded this one.

"Banger" was one of my favourite England players. Happy retirement Tresco.

Bit mean, they could've given us a chance to crack the last 18 runs off 12 balls... :D
