Somerset beat Surrey to reach T20 Blast final

There was no T20 Blast final for Surrey after Somerset won by 24 runs at Edgbaston on Saturday.

Somerset, who have reached a record sixth final, will play Essex in the last test.

Surrey won the inaugural edition of the competition in 2003 but have yet to win it since.

Surrey captain Chris Jordan said: “I was very pleased with the bowling and fielding performance – that was the benchmark of the kind of play we have been looking for the entire season.

“If someone told me at the start of the game we would restrict Somerset to 142, I’d certainly have taken it but we didn’t quite get it right with the bat. We lost wickets in the powerplay and one of the things we know about Twenty20 cricket is you have to find that balance between putting the bowlers under pressure but not losing wickets.

“There was still belief that we could come through because our batting line-up is so long and we have power right the way down the order.

“When Tom Curran and I came together we said, look, let’s be positive and if something’s there, we take it on, and we managed to collect three sixes in about an eight-ball stretch but I just didn’t get hold of the last one I went for and Somerset fielded very well, as they have done all season.”
