Match scorecard

Somerset just had the edge against Warwickshire as only 32.5 overs were possible on the first day of the County Championship meeting of Division One’s bottom two at Taunton.

After putting on 46 for the first wicket, Warwickshire’s openers were undone by the introduction of Jamie Overton into the attack.

Ian Westwood played on for 21, before Overton yorked Andy Umeed for 24.

Craig Overton removed Ian Bell for eight before an early finish on 92-3.

Having started on time, play lasted for an hour and a half in the morning session before a rain break half an hour before the scheduled lunch.

When they resumed again in early afternoon, only another 62 balls were possible.

Jonathan Trott remains at the crease on 30, accompanied by the recalled Sam Hain, who is unbeaten on eight.

Hain was one of four changes made by the struggling Bears, who gave Championship debuts to young pace bowler Grant Thornton and spinner Sukhit Singh, while bringing in 21-year-old Umeed for his first Championship appearance of the season.
