Sabres fail with the bat in final game
Paceman Stuart Clark mowed down the Somerset top order with three early wickets as New South Wales' disciplined bowling unit restricted the English side to an unflattering 111 for seven wickets in the Champions League Twenty20.
Clark, who extracted sharp bounce from track at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, inflicted the early blows on Somerset by removing both the openers Craig Kieswetter (13) and Justine Langer (5) in the fifth over of the League A tie.
Before the British could recover from the twin loss, Clark again rocked them by returning James Hildreth (6) in the seventh over, leaving Somerset struggling at 39 for three wickets.
Earlier, NSW captain Simon Katich won toss and elected to field and Somerset's run-rate never really soared with Clark, brilliantly supported by Brett Lee (1/15), making life difficult for them.
