Yeah, this is a really poor finish for Somerset. Still hope for a Buttler onslaught for two of three overs though, I guess.
Also, lol @ David Willey.
Not having a bad couple of weeks is he. Hero on T20 finals day, 2 matches for a winning England Lions team, and now 167 off 101. Gonna bet he'll take a 5fer in this innings too!

Northants will need to knock over Warwicks for below 129 to have a chance of getting their run-rate above Glamorgan's. The Steelbacks' best chance might be fore Gloucestershire to turn over Somerset and then beat Gloucester on run-rate. In Group B, Hampshire might also miss out if they can't defend 220 (although if Derby turns square again, Briggs and Dawson should be able to keep that together). Essex will be hoping that Derby can pull of that chase, as that's their only way in ... so long as Lancashire don't chase 300...

If Hampshire lose what are the chances of them going through in second? Pickup to tell me.
Asking rate here at Headingley is currently climbing.
Looks like Ravi went easy on Kegga, either that or he doesn't seem to have been too traumatised by recent experience
Carberry has three wickets at Derby. That has never happened in senior cricket before. I have no idea what they have done to that wicket but the pitch inspectors are likely to be getting interested shortly.
Haha yeah, I was slightly concerned for a while there.
Anyway the reason that we're not that good at chasing is usually that it's simply too much to chase. I've said for a while that our bowling's the problem, and until we sort that out we're going nowhere.
Wins for Notts, Hampshire, Glamorgan & Somerset put them all through. If Glos beat Somerset then Northants are best runner-up. If Glamorgan blow it then it's winner of Gloucs/Somerset + Northants as best second: Northants' massive score has made Lancs/Essex meaningless.
