SOMERSET closed in on victory over Warwickshire during an action-packed day which saw a further 19 wickets fall in Taunton.

The visitors closed on 103-6, needing a further 136 runs for victory - Sam Hain (43*) will be key to their prospects in the morning.

Somerset began the day by quickly taking the final three first innings wickets they needed, as Warwickshire added just 25 runs to their overnight 110-7.

Craig Overton took two of the wickets to end with 5-29 but Somerset were soon in trouble with the bat and were reduced to 75-5 by lunch.

Marcus Trescothick made 23, his highest score of the season, before he was trapped in front by Liam Norwell - the former Gloucestershire seamer taking four of the five morning wickets to fall.

The game hung in the balance when Somerset were reduced to 78-7, a lead of 152, but Craig Overton (36*) led Somerset to 164.

Lewis Gregory then struck in the first over of the chase and Overton dismissed Adam Hose cheaply for the second time in the match as Warwickshire slipped to 55-4.

Two quick wickets before the close left them 89-6, but Hain and Henry Brookes survived to take the game into a third day.
