CRICKET UPDATE: Trego hammers South Africans
12:20pm Monday 9th July 2012 in Somerset CCC
A BELLIGERENT stand of 133 in just 16.4 overs between James Hildreth and Peter Trego has lifted Somerset to 165-4 against South Africa at lunch on the first day of their two-day match at the County Ground.
Somerset struggled to reach 32-4 in face of tight bowling from Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander and smart fielding which brought two run-outs.
But Trego set about the second-string bowlers with gusto, hitting an unbeaten 75 in just 46 balls.
Hildreth also batted fluently and is still there on 63.
