Match scorecard

Yorkshire and Somerset played out a draw in Division One at Taunton.

Resuming on 530-9, Craig Meschede went on to reach 59 not out but the dismissal of last-man Craig Overton for 15 left the hosts 553 all out, a first-innings lead of 103.

Adam Lyth (54) and Alex Lees (47) shared a 100-run partnership for the first wicket in Yorkshire's reply.

Kane Williamson added 57 not out before the visitors declared on 193-4 and the captains immediately agreed on a draw.

The final day always looked likely to end in a stalemate, with 980 runs being scored in the first three while only 19 wickets fell.

Andrew Gale and England hopeful Gary Ballance, who made his Test debut in the winter Ashes series in Australia, were the only Yorkshire batsmen to fall for modest totals, registering scores of 11 and five respectively.
