Warwickshire have declared on 294/3, setting Somerset 273 to win off 79 overs on this decisive last day of the season. The Bears began the day looking to tee off, with Rob Yates hitting his quickest ever first-class hundred off 149 balls and finishing 132 not out. The home side will now set about taking the ten wickets that would win them the game and crown them winners of the County Championship. The declaration seems a smart one, as the required run-rate of 3.45 will tempt Somerset into some shots. Warwickshire also have the privilege of handing the ball to the ever-dangerous Chris Woakes as they hunt for dismissals.
