Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 5 Runs 2 Wkts | KKR: 155/8

  • B Lee2 (2b)
  • Iqbal Abdulla1 (1b)
  • RE van der Merwe4-0-23-2
  • AC Thomas4-0-32-0

So just to sum up, T&T, Somerset and Kolkata Knight Riders have gone through to the main draw. How Ruhuna will have loved to have played the last match with the knowledge of what exactly to do. It's Kolkata who got that luxury, and did that. Just about. That's all we have from day three. Join us for the rest day after tomorrow. Cheers

Time for the presentations
Peter Trego is MoM He says: "Very proud. Been playing for Somerset for some time, this one of the proudest nights of my career with them. When Roelof bats the way he did, it takes the pressure. All other batsmen batted at more than run a ball. We had nothing to ose as outsiders, so we can give it our all."

Alfonso Thomas: "Nine out of ten. Those two catches that we could have taken. Certainly waiting on the likes of Jos Butler and Craig Kiewstter joining us."

Jacques Kallis: "To be honest, we are happy to qualify. It was tight in the end. To be brutally honest, it was a poor performance. We fielded poorly, didn't bat well. Ryan played an exceptional innings to get us through. When we lost a couple of wickets up front, we realised we didn't need to be heroes. It looks like Gautam Gambhir will be ready. World-class player."

Ruhuna must be feeling bad. They would have loved to have won by more runs. Meanwhile KKR, the side that lost, is celebrating more than Somerset, the side that won

1
van der Merwe to Lee, 1 run, Lee heaves, gets a single, Somerset win. They were jetlagged when they started the competition, now they are one of the sides to watch out for
19.5
1
van der Merwe to Iqbal Abdulla, 1 run, full on the pads, clipped away for a single to be extra sure
19.4
W
van der Merwe to ten Doeschate, OUT, RVD Merwe says, NIMBY. RTD comes down the ground, he spears in a yorker to take the middle stumps out. RTD goes back with a smile on his face. To those who used RTD so low in the order, remember class will out

Now for the win?

19.3
2
van der Merwe to ten Doeschate, 2 runs, RTD moves around in the crease, backs away, then goes across, gets inside the line, clipps it away, runs hard, gets the couple. Brett Lee has won many World Cups, but I haven't seen him celebrate as much. The game is still on, and he goes up to hug RTD
19.2
1
van der Merwe to Lee, 1 run, low full toss, hit straight to extra again, Lee has to dive full length to beat Thomas's throw

van der Merwe is a canny cricketer. Immediately he aborts the celebrations to tell the umpire the batsmen didn't cross. Brett lee to face now

19.1
W
van der Merwe to Bhatia, OUT, What has Bhatia done here? Low full toss, and he looks to chip this over extra cover. The idea is right, the execution isn't. A low catch for extra cover. The batsmen haven't crossed. new batsman on stirke

"KKR's matches are as well scripted as their owner's movies." What are you alluding to, RS Sampat? Last over to go. Three for qualification, 17 to win. I am sure Kolkata are thinking of 153 right now. RVD Merwe to bowl
