Meschede hit 53 to help Somerset to victory over Glamorgan

Somerset batsman Craig Meschede says he can learn from playing alongside captain Marcus Trescothick.

The duo's second-wicket stand of 73 helped the side to a seven-wicket victory over Glamorgan in Sunday's FL t20 clash.

"We lost Peter Trego and I had to stay up the other end and watch Tres smash it all over the place," the 19-year-old told BBC Somerset.

"It's a learning curve for me, playing with such an amazing player," he added.

"You don't try and do the same thing as him as his ability is ridiculous but you just try and stay in there as long as possible.

"Getting a good partnership with him was a really good experience."

South Africa-born Meschede, who came through the Taunton club's youth academy, gained a personal milestone by hitting his maiden half-century for the first team.

"It's an amazing experience and an amazing feeling," he said. "I had my chances before this and didn't take them so it's good to get some runs under my belt and get my first 50.

"There's a lot of competition in the team, it's quite a competitive squad so you've got to be on the ball but luckily I got a good knock today and I'll hopefully be in the next game."
