Somerset head coach Jason Kerr said: “I’m delighted for all three of them. It’s a great opportunity for them and it gives them the chance to get another really competitive game under their belts before the first Championship match of the season.

“This will only help to get the players involved up to that all important match-sharpness.

“Pre-season is about building confidence and the guys having time in the middle. This game will give the players the opportunity to build their confidence and help to ensure that they are ready to go when we get to that first game.
