Somerset opener Tom Lammonby made a sparkling 116 to give his side a chance of beating Essex on the last day of the Bob Willis Trophy final at Lord’s.

His 151-ball knock included 17 fours as Somerset overcame a first-innings deficit of 36 after Essex made 337-8.

Partnerships of 105 with opener Ben Green (41) and 50 with Tom Abell put Somerset in the driving seat at 155-2.

But Jamie Porter (4-51) led Essex’s fightback with the ball to reduce them to 227-7 at stumps, a lead of 191.
