Scorecard summary
Somerset 132/8(20 overs)
Eagles 133/5(18.4 overs)

So, Somerset are nearly out of the tournament. It was extremely sensible batting from Eagles which did the job today, plenty of singles and just the odd boundary to keep the asking rate in check. As Ejaz from Pakistan writes in, Eagles once got runs for 22 consecutive deliveries.

While Somerset's bowling lacked the cutting edge, the batting went awry at the start and the end. Only nine runs from the last three overs is poor given how well Durston had batted to revive them from a top-order collapse.

Post-match presentation

CJ de Villiers is the Man of the Match. "About two months ago I had a stress fracture of the back, doctors said take it as it comes, it's magical that I'm here in India."

Justin Langer: "We didn't make enough runs. It's been an emotional rollercoaster this tournament, we didn't play our best cricket. I was frustrated today, we have played our best cricket here. It has been a great tournament, very well organised, fantastic grounds, and cut-throat competition."

Boeta Dippenaar "We have got better and better as the tournament progressed. CJ was magnificent, I think world cricket will hear more and more about him. This is a magnificent opportunity for us, we are trying to soak it up."

Graham from New Zealand: "Regarding Kendall from Australia's vent - that sounds like exactly what an aussie would say about T20 - they all hate it because they're no good at it!" Well, they do have two of the most impressive teams in the tournament.

Btw, you can see the latest points table here.

Parting shot from Kendall: "Oh darn....and I was so hoping that 1 team would win thru a super-silly-single-over tie-breaker once more! And then carry their one-over decider points to the next round where they qualify to win the Grand Final without bowling a ball. Yep, sarcasm is the lowest form of wit...I apologise."

Thomas to Bailey, 1 run

length ball outside off, dropped towards point for a single

Kendall vents from Australia: "Bah points points points!!! But who ever really thought Twenty20 'cricket' is anything but a lottery anyway?! Smash and bash and who has the best luck wins...11 vs 11! As someone once said, a coin-toss is part of cricket so if you need elevate one team over the other...flippin' it is fairer than 6 balls of sillyness!"

Jim Davis from Ireland: "Try not to look at it as points carried forward and look at it as all the points won against the three teams now in your group over the course of the tournament. It then makes more sense."
