BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chris Woakes30.3610033.2714814203
6.6 to BGF Green, Woakes makes the breakthrough with an absolute snorter. Wide on the crease, angling into the right-handed Green and then nipping away sharply, past his outside edge and crashing into the top of off stump. 36/1
106.2 to L Gregory, smashed on the pad, gone! Wow, what a moment in the title race. Woakes is full and straight and pins Gregory in front. No hesitation from the umpire. Warwickshire need one more wicket in the next 22 balls to keep their title hopes in their own hands. 325/8
136.3 to JH Davey, . 389/10
Liam Norwell26126312.4213310100
39.5 to TB Abell, nicked off! Abell hangs his bat at a nibbler in the corridor of uncertainty and gets a thin edge through to Burgess. Warwickshire have their third wicket shortly before tea. 132/3
Tim Bresnan2083531.751035000
51.1 to Azhar Ali, breakthrough! Bresnan finds a hint of nip away off the seam and a bit of extra bounce to induce a false shot from Azhar, whose outside edge flies straight to skipper Rhodes at first slip. Warwickshire have four. Somerset still 200 behind. 167/4
79.5 to SM Davies, nicked off! Perfectly timed breakthrough for Warwickshire on the third morning, just before the second new ball is due. Bresnan angles a length ball across Davies from over the wicket and induces a false shot, the ball taking his outside edge on its way through to Burgess. 247/6
89.6 to C Overton, Bresnan again! The first over of his new-ball spell brings Overton's downfall. Full, angling in, smashing into the front pad. 271/7
Craig Miles2446102.541129000
Danny Briggs2767732.8512811100
29.5 to TA Lammonby, superb catch off his own bowling! Lammonby has been taking the attack to Briggs and dances down again, meeting this on the half-volley, but he doesn't get much elevation and goes straighter than he'd hoped. Briggs stick out a hand low to his right and the ball sticks in it! Briggs is having a real day out. 104/2
60.1 to LP Goldsworthy, awful batting! Goldsworthy has battled hard for his runs but Briggs throws one wide outside off stump as he skips down the pitch looking to loft one down the ground. He chips it straight down Woakes' throat at mid-on and trudges off in disappointment. 187/5

Chris Woakes1683932.43826001
16.1 to Azhar Ali, back of a length, a flaccid jab from Azhar, open-faced steer to second slip, and now Warwickshire are on the march!. 35/3
36.3 to C Overton, cleaned up! Woakes sends Overton's stumps flying. Perfect ball, just a fraction full of a length, angling in and nibbling away off the seam. Overton lined up a defensive shot with a straight bat but it flew past his outside edge and crashed into the top of middle-and-off. Warwickshire are three away!. 90/7
40.1 to MJ Leach, bowled him! Exceptional line and length from Woakes! Full, straight, threatening, tight to the stumps, pitching middle and leg, hitting middle and off... Leach was nowhere near it!. 106/8
Liam Norwell1354023.07627000
33.3 to SM Davies, cleaned up by an inch-perfect yorker! Full and straight, angling in from round the wicket. Davies can't jam the bat down on it, and Norwell has the breakthrough. Middle and leg stumps are splayed and Warwickshire have another crucial scalp. 85/6
51.6 to JA Brooks, flinched to the gully and Warwickshire are champions! Pushed onto the back foot, fenced with an open face, a flying edge to the skipper Rhodes, and the celebrations begin! Huge glee from the fielders, before Bresnan breaks off to shake hands with the Somerset batters, and the rest of the team follow. Victory by 127 runs, and thoroughly deserved!. 154/10
Tim Bresnan1353612.76667000
15.2 to BGF Green, flicked down the leg side, and strangled! Of all the ways to force the breakthrough, but Warwickshire won't care at all! A thin tickle, a massive stroke of luck. And now we have a tussle. 35/2
Danny Briggs11010.0060000
10.4 to TA Lammonby, brilliant catch at slip by Bresnan! Wide outside off from Briggs but he finds sharp turn from a length and even a hint of extra bounce. Lammonby was cramped after rocking back, shaping to cut, and his thick outside edge travels fast to Bresnan, the solitary slip. He clings onto a sharp reaction catch, and Warwickshire have their breakthrough. 31/1
Craig Miles912632.88434000
22.3 to TB Abell, caught at gully! That's a poor shot from Abell, playing away from the body, failing to get on top of the stroke as Miles dug it in back of a length. Warwickshire are closing in now!. 56/4
28.4 to LP Goldsworthy, No mistake this time! Dangled outside off, luring a fat prod, outside the eyeline, and edged to third slip where Rob Yates clings on above his head. That was travelling!. 73/5
50.3 to L Gregory, short, wide, a wide swipe, a thin nick! A massive take from Burgess! Leaping high to intercept, and now it's Match Point, Warwickshire! Gregory was lured once too often, and the Bears are rampant!. 149/9
