It might have been a big joke when the Englishmen beat the power packed Aussie outfit in the Twenty20 match but getting beaten by Somerset in a 50 over match is no joke at all. Aussies scored a massive 342 for 5 wickets both Hayden and Ponting retiring out to give batting options to the rest scoring 76 and 80 respectively.
In reply Somerset reached the target in 46.5 overs. South African captain Greame Smith's exceptional form continued as he scored 108 in 74 balls while Sri Lankan master blaster scored 101 of 79 balls adding 197 run partnership for the first wicket.
Aussies have to stay focused as the Natwest Series begins tomorrow. England have never been better as they are at the moment.
