TOM Abell said he was pleased that Somerset have their T20 fate "in our own hands" after Saturday night's 25-run victory over Glamorgan at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

Somerset bounced back from defeat at Gloucestershire on Friday, to move into fourth place in the South Group table with two games remaining.

Abell said afterwards: "We're in a good position in the group with two games to go and our fate is in our own hands.

"We have two games to go against Surrey and Middlesex and, if we win them both, we will make the quarter-finals.

"It helps that we know what we have to do."

Abell also praised Tom Banton and Babar Azam, after another classy performance from the opening partnership.

They put on 61 runs for the first wicket inside six overs, Banton scoring 34 of those, and Azam went on to top score with 63.

"Tom Banton is a special talent, Babar Azam is one of the best batsmen in the world, and we are lucky to have them," said Abell.

"You need a couple of players to get you off to a really good start and we have that in those two.

"They gave us a great platform again tonight and that allowed those of us who followed the freedom to play our shots."

But the outcome of the game was in the balance when Somerset could only post 177-8, a score which Abell admitted was below par.

Nonetheless, with Max Waller taking 3-19, Jerome Taylor 2-31 and Tim Groenewald 2-22, the bowlers did their job as they had Glamorgan all out for 152 in the final over.

Abell said: "I think the game was won when we started so well with the new ball.

"We were disappointed with that score [177-8], which was a bit below par.

"But when we took those early wickets up top, we knew we were in control of the game.

"Max Waller bowled really well during the middle overs and Jerome Taylor's pace made things happen for us."

Those thoughts were echoed by Waller, who said: "The bowlers did a great job. We felt we were maybe 15-20 too light with the bat.

"But we bowled and fielded brilliantly, and the early wicket of Colin Ingram was crucial.

"I like to think I've been pretty consistent over the last few years, but those [3-19 off four overs] are good bowling figures at Taunton.

"Momentum is crucial for us now, it would be lovely to win the next two, at the Oval on Tuesday and Middlesex here on Friday."
