Steelbacks clinch second place

Rain ended former winners Somerset's hopes of reaching the last eight of the Twenty20 Cup at the County Ground at Northampton.

The 2005 champions, needing victory to retain any chance of progressing, had faced a difficult enough challenge to defend their total of 137 for nine against Northamptonshire.

But the weather denied them the final opportunity as the match was abandoned with the Steelbacks 20 without loss two overs into their reply.

The no result means the Steelbacks are now guaranteed to progress behind Mid/West/Wales Division winners Warwickshire.
