Dom Bess is England’s occupant moderate bowler subsequent to playing in their last Test in South Africa and repeated his accreditation with a strong presentation on the second day of the three-day warm-up coordinate in Southampton in front of the following week’s first Test against West Indies.
The Somerset off-spinner got two wickets with some shrewd bowling – he had Keaton Jennings looked at slip and up some other time had Craig Overton edging to the ‘attendant – and traversed 20 overs worth of work on his first appearance since playing in Sri Lanka in March during England’s prematurely ended visit.
Bess looked all the more compromising on the second day at the Ageas Bowl than either Moeen Ali or Jack Leach had the day preceding when both went wicketless.

Bess mentions of trying his best to get rhythm

That was a real big challenge for me, just making sure that when I do come into this sort of arena, practice games, making sure I really focus on what I can do. I think I have done that really well. I just want to put myself in the best position possible for when the decision does come.
Bess conceded that he was apprehensive when he previously began bowling after the Covid-19 authorized split and attempted to get back on track toward the finish of this winter by bowling as much as possible during his individual instructional courses in Taunton. At one phase, he should have been told by Somerset’s mentor, Jason Kerr, to dial down.
The young Bess says he is trying to bowl as much as he can to get that feel back, that rhythm. His bound into his run-up is really important. He was a bit nervous to be back after such a long time but he is happy to be back on the ground.
