The Surrey Brown Caps three headed spin attack lead by Anil Kumble restricted the Nottingham Outlaws to 176 in the first innings of the second Twenty20 semi final at Trent Bridge.
After winning the toss Outlaws captain Stephen Flemming decided to bat hoping to set the Brown Caps a large target.
Spurred on by the home crowd Fleming and Graeme Swann attacked from ball one as Azhar Mahmood and Tim Murtagh were the unlucky bowlers who were dispatched all around Trent Bridge.
The runs only stopped once Indian spinner Anil Kumble came into the attack, Fleming soon went after misjudging a floating ball by Kumble and was stumped for 31, Swann soon followed after being run out by Mahmood after David Hussey decided to take a ill judged single.
After losing Samit Patel for 16 Hussey took control of the game hitting some large sixes around the ground including two into the William Clarke Stand.
Hussey was finally bowled by Kumble thanks to a large inside edge for 42 before Chirs Read hit a quick fire 23, he was stopped by Murtagh but this brought Mark Ealham to the wicket and he crashed 18 of 7 balls including 16 off the last over.
