It's been an overwhelming victory for T&T. Somerset didn't have any momentum during the chase and never looked like they had a chance. The T&T spinners smothered the batsmen and wickets fell regularly as well. Bravo was exceptional, taking 4 for 23. The 44-run victory has ensured that T&T have an extremely healthy run-rate. They go to the top of the group and have one foot in the next round. They will need to be beaten very heavily by Deccan to crash out.

One down and one to go, Bangalore take on Otago at 8.00pm local time in what is a knockout match for both teams. The toss will be at half past seven. Join Cricinfo's assistant editor Andrew McGlashan for the pre-match

Willoughby is the new batsman, the last batsman.

Max Waller b Bravo 1 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28
Bravo to de Bruyn, 1 run

played to deep midwicket for one more

Massive cheer from the crowd as the Bangalore Royal Challengers make their way around the outfield.

Bravo to de Bruyn, 2 runs

full ball driven firmly towards the bowler, it deflects off the boot towards long off and the batsmen run a risky second, the throw is poor

Bravo to de Bruyn, FOUR runs

short ball and de Bruyn pulls towards wide long on where Pollard misfields and allows Somerset four more runs

It's academic but Somerset need 52 runs off the last over.
