NSW have sealed their spot in the semis because their run rate is so high. This was a massive win, the fastest of the competition. So now, T&T and Eagles will play. Eagles will have to win and win big. T&T can still lose and go through. This win was fashioned in the field and hastened by Warner's onslaught. NSW hit back after being tanked by Kieron Pollard. Somerset crash out.

Ravi Shastri has the post-match presentation. Stuart Clark is Man of the Match.

Langer: "We've been outplayed for a lot of the tournament and that is disappointing for our fans back home. But it's been a real eye-opener for a lot of our guys. We were up against a world-class bowling attack. They bowled beautifully. No excuses with the wicket, the outfield was as good as Lord's or the SCG. We will come back. And this is my final match. It's nice to bow out in India playing in tough conditions." So there you have it, folks. Langer has retired from cricket. Hats off, what a player.

Katich: "The wicket quickened up when we batted. That made a difference. We have to replicate the intensity from the first two games in Delhi. Everyone has to chip in around the openers."

That is all for now. The match between the Eagles and T&T starts at 8.00. Bye for now!

"I'm really hoping NSW doesn't play Victoria in the semi-finals," says Jake. "That would really unfair for Aussie fans."
