Yorkshire coach Andrew Gale said
“After the game last week at Hampshire (Hampshire held on for a draw nine wickets down), I felt we’d played our best cricket down there. We were disappointed not to get the result. So to come back this week and back it up against a strong Somerset side, and to beat them in two days, is a fantastic effort.
“The lads, from start to finish, dominated that game.
“We knew coming into this part of the season we had to bring our A game to stand a chance of winning the Championship. We’re starting to show signs of being a really strong side.
“When you come back of a quarter-final loss (Blast), you worry how that will affect confidence. But the lads have hit the ground running.
“We’re playing some good cricket, confidence is high. The signs are good.”
