Somerset v Warwickshire

On being put in to bat, Warwickshire struggled early on, and when Ian Bell was dismissed they were 76-5 and floundering. Enter the veteran Zimbabwean Trevor Penney, who smashed 4 fours and 3 sixes in a 28 ball 52, and at the other end, the Kenyan Collins Obuya added an unbeaten 34. Young Graham Wagg added the final touches with 13 from 6 balls as they piled up 188-7.

It was a tough ask, and stand in captain Nick Knight sprang a major surprise when Somerset came into bat, handing Ian Bell the unlikely role of new ball bowler. It wasn't a successful move, as Jamie Cox got the side off to a flyer, with 47 from 27 balls, but Wagg was in fine form, and bowled Carl Gazzard for 10, before following up with possibly the key wicket, bowling Ian Blackwell first ball. From 49-2, Somerset pressed on, as Keith Dutch batted superbly for 70 from 52 balls, but when Obuya bowled Cox, the innings began to fall away dramatically as all the bowlers maintained their composure and the run rate increased, eventually Somerset being bowled out off their final ball for 169, both Wagg and Obuya collecting 3 wickets.
