It is official then. Somerset have gone through to the finals, winning by three runs on the D/L method. Patel and Hussey, some 20 runs behind D/L when they got together, had brought Notts slightly ahead when Pollard pulled off that special catch at the edge of the long-on boundary. It was that close. Thanks for joining us for this one. Stay back for the final

6.34pm It has stopped raining, but there is no way we can get the covers off in one minute. Or can we?

6.30pm We are five minutes from the cut-off for this match. It looks like Somerset right now, because it is still raining

Notts now three runs behind on D/L. And what's more? It's pouring now and we have players going off the field. That beauty of a catch by Pollard at long-on might just have won Somerset the match. Notts were ahead on D/L then, and not only did Pollard take the wicket all by himself, he saved six runs too. And as of now, Notts are only three behind

slower ball, driven just to the right of sweeper-cover, and he rushes back for the second, and puts in a full-length dive. He looked gone for all money with the throw halfway through to the keeper, but Read beat it by a split-frame. So tight

Trego to Patel, OUT

of all the men Patel could pick he has picked Pollard to take a superb overhead catch at long-on! He makes room and lofts it dead straight, and Pollard first moves to his left, and then jumps at the right time at the edge of the boundary to take the catch. And suddenly Notts are behind on D/L

what a moment! Hussey plays it in the air towards long-off, Philips picks it up late, still goes for it, sees he cannot get there, but while on his knees, makes a nice overhead save to save three runs
