Friends Life t20, Final: Leicestershire v Somerset at Birmingham, Aug 27, 2011
Leicestershire won by 18 runs
27 August 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Kirby to Cobb, OUT, an enormous steepler! A loose pull, a top-edge, there's snow on the ball before it reaches Pollard, who snaffles it with consummate ease

JJ Cobb c Pollard b Kirby 18 (10m 10b 2x4 1x6) SR: 180.00

Leicestershire 24/1   Abdul Razzaq 5* (7b 1x4)   SP Kirby 0.5-0-3-1

Pollard to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, great bowling from Pollard, a full-length slower ball, and Razzaq completely mis-times his drive back to the bowler

Abdul Razzaq c & b Pollard 33 (43m 33b 5x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Leicestershire 94/2   WI Jefferson 34* (27b 2x4 2x6)   KA Pollard 2.4-0-14-1

Suppiah to Jefferson, OUT, that was coming all over long! The tourniquet had been tightened, and Jefferson falls! Very full, very straight, and that stuck the back knee as another sweep was missed. Big Will hints there might have been an under-edge, but he's got to go

WI Jefferson lbw b Suppiah 35 (37m 29b 2x4 2x6) SR: 120.68

Leicestershire 96/3   J du Toit 1* (6b)   AV Suppiah 3-0-24-1

Meschede to Nixon, OUT, astounding! Pollard needed four grabs to intercept a swish to mid-off, but he just saved the ball as it plummeted to earth

PA Nixon c Pollard b Meschede 4 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Leicestershire 101/4   J du Toit 2* (7b)   CAJ Meschede 1-0-5-1

Suppiah to du Toit, OUT, reverse sweep, but Kirby pre-empted the stroke and was in position at backward point by the time the ball arrived!

J du Toit c Kirby b Suppiah 2 (10m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Leicestershire 102/5   AB McDonald 1* (2b)   AV Suppiah 3.3-0-25-2

Pollard to McDonald, OUT, brilliant from Thomas at deep extra. Lofted drive from McDonald, the fielder made good ground, slid in to gather, and Leicestershire haven't reached the boundary for almost five overs

AB McDonald c Thomas b Pollard 14 (18m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 93.33

Leicestershire 127/6   JWA Taylor 11* (12b)   KA Pollard 3.4-0-18-2
