Somerset County Cricket Club
Somerset County Cricket Club entered the county championship in 1891. In the season following their following, Somerset County Cricket Club finished 3rd in the County Championship. It took the county 66 years to repeat the performance. Somerset County Cricket Club's inconsistency ensured that the club finished last for 12 times, which itself is a record.

Somerset County Cricket Club could never make much mark in the four-day matches early on but proved a formidible team in the shorter version of the game. At one of time, a string of poor performances which tailed Somerset threatened to toss the club out of the county circuit. Somerset County Cricket Club responded by hiring the best cricketers from across the world- like Viv Richards, Joel Garner, Martin Crowe to better its performance.



Inspite of having some talented players, Somerset County Cricket Club has not met with much success even in recent years. Somerset players like Andy Caddick and Marcus Trescothick have not been able to change its ill fortunes. At present, Somerset County Cricket Club has Justin Langer as one of the overseas players.

A glance at Somerset County Cricket Club's players lists which features names like-
  • Sunil Gavaskar
  • Ian Botham
  • Sanath Jayasuriya
  • Graeme Smith

and many more, to disappointing feeling that Somerset County Cricket Club has never played as well as it might have. Cricketscorelive.com gives information on Somerset County Cricket Club and the other County teams.
