Tom Kohler-Cadmore said:
“It was boring to come out right after the hundred, but it’s one of those things. He trapped me in the crease, hit me on the shin and I think he’s the only heavyweight I’ve ever walked for.
“Last session we brought him back because we could have had a tricky five, six spell, which wouldn’t have been ideal for the frontrunners.
“As a bowling team, that’s what you want – five overs with the new ball to put the opponent under pressure.
“But the way Bessy played tonight, Tommo, Waitey and Shutty too, they all pulled back to at least give us a chance tomorrow.
“It’s still a good ground, and we’re still in the game with it. If they had come to 400-420, it’s far if we had lost one of the first. Hopefully we will be in a good position tomorrow.

Despite running a deep deficit, Yorkshire had a buffer as they came back after lunch at 230-6 after 79 overs, needing to reach 275 to avoid the call.
That thought was only reinforced when they reached 267-6, with Jonny Tattersall just entering his 40s.
However, he was caught as he thought of backing up fast South African overseas Marchant de Lange, falling for 43.
And 267-7 quickly became 273-9 as Dom Bess chipped young dressmaker Kasey Aldridge to cover and Jordan Thompson was knocked down by de Lange.

lunch report Tom Kohler-Cadmore lost two balls after reaching his first red ball century since the last game of 2019 as Yorkshire responded to the opening round of Somerset 424 on matchday three against Somerset at Taunton.
Kohler-Cadmore impressed against County which he will join this winter with 100 balls from 201, backing Yorkshire 230-6 from 79 overs.
Sadly, however, he followed Matthew Waite back to the clubhouse when he was lbw trapped playing Australian Matthew Renshaw’s part-time rotation.
That left Yorkshire at 228-6 in the 75th, still 47 from avoiding the follow-up (275).
Waite was down for 21 when caught short in the middle of the wicket against the seam of Kasey Aldridge – 194-5 in the 56th.
Yorkshire had started the day 167-4, Kohler-Cadmore 68 and Waite 16. The pair then completed a 65-run partnership for the fifth wicket.

The potential Somerset batsman reached his century with 199 in his first four-day game this summer following the concussion he suffered earlier this year while playing in Pakistan.

9:20 a.m. If you want to recap yesterday’s action from Taunton, you can do so via our Match Report and Reaction article with Dom Bess. There’s even a touch of Jack Brooks for good measure.
Hello from Taunton, where it’s a dry and bright start to day three.
The sun just went out behind the clouds for a while but it looks like a nice warm day in the South West – nothing like Tuesday but much better than yesterday when it was quite chilly late .
Yorkshire will start the day on 167-4 in response to 424 from Somerset. The first stop for Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Matthew Waite and co will be scoring the 275 tracking target.
Kohler-Cadmore will resume on 68 and Waite on 16.
The ground, although slow, remains good for striking.
Yorkshire blamed the loss of three of their four wickets yesterday on poor execution; Lyth, Hill and Brook.
Somerset will be the happiest of the two sides halfway through, although there’s no reason Yorkshire’s middle and lower order couldn’t turn things around today.
There will be a stream available once more shortly before starting at 11am.
Enjoy the day.
