Worcestershire vs Northamptonshire

On choosing to bat, Northamptonshire got off to a good start with Mike Hussey making 67 from 59 balls and Philip Jaques 33 from 22, but the change bowlers, led by South African Andrew Hall's 2-17 from 4 overs, strangled the middle order, and despite Andre Nel's 2 huge sixes, they could only manage 150-9 in their 20 overs.

Gareth Batty and David Taylor set into the bowling from the off, Taylor making 46 from just 20 balls (42 of which came in boundaries), but there was another twist in the tail, as Ricaldo Anderson picked up 4 wickets in very quick succession and Worcestershire were struggling on 84-6. Enter young debutant Stephen Moore, who batted very cooly under the pressure, not even being fazed when the 9th wicket fell with still 7 runs needed, and he guided them home with 2 balls left for a nervewracking win.
