CRICKET: Somerset ease through to T20 finals day
7:36pm Tuesday 24th July 2012 in Somerset CCC
SOMERSET blasted their way to finals day in the Friends Life T20 with a 27-run victory over Essex at the County Ground this afternoon (July 24).
Then the bowlers struck early as the Essex chase never gained momentum.
At 53-5 in the tenth over, when Alastair Cook was out for 28, the game was effectively over.
And some late hitting from Ryan ten Doeschate, who struck 47 in 24 balls, did little more than keep the crowd entertained.
