Somerset claim 5-1 bowl out victory

Somerset are through to the semi-finals of the Twenty20 Cup after defeating Lancashire in a bowl-out.

After the quarter-final at Old Trafford was washed out on three successive days, the Somerset won through 5-1 to book a last-four meeting with Kent.

Alfonso Thomas twice hit the unguarded stumps for the visitors, with Peter Trego, Charl Willoughby and Ben Philips also on target.

Only rookie paceman Steven Cheetham hit the stumps for the home side.

The two sides had hoped to finally play their quarter-final on Thursday after the game was washed out on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

But a thunder storm and further rain left the ground unplayable, leaving the umpires no alternative but to abandon the match for a third time and order the bowl-out in Lancashire's indoor school.
