Banton Century Helps Somerset Victory

Tom Banton

Monday’s action saw Tom Banton score an unbeaten century for Somerset in their game at Kent in Canterbury while rain would wash out the other game that was set to take place in Southampton. We also look at the fixtures between England and Sri Lanka as well as the squads for the ODIs between the sides.

Hampshire Hawks vs Middlesex

There was no toss as rain would leave the outfield waterlogged.
