So just to sum up, T&T, Somerset and Kolkata Knight Riders have gone through to the main draw. How Ruhuna will have loved to have played the last match with the knowledge of what exactly to do. It's Kolkata who got that luxury, and did that. Just about. That's all we have from day three. Join us for the rest day after tomorrow. Cheers

Time for the presentations

Peter Trego is MoM He says: "Very proud. Been playing for Somerset for some time, this one of the proudest nights of my career with them. When Roelof bats the way he did, it takes the pressure. All other batsmen batted at more than run a ball. We had nothing to ose as outsiders, so we can give it our all."

Alfonso Thomas: "Nine out of ten. Those two catches that we could have taken. Certainly waiting on the likes of Jos Butler and Craig Kiewstter joining us."

Jacques Kallis: "To be honest, we are happy to qualify. It was tight in the end. To be brutally honest, it was a poor performance. We fielded poorly, didn't bat well. Ryan played an exceptional innings to get us through. When we lost a couple of wickets up front, we realised we didn't need to be heroes. It looks like Gautam Gambhir will be ready. World-class player."

Ruhuna must be feeling bad. They would have loved to have won by more runs. Meanwhile KKR, the side that lost, is celebrating more than Somerset, the side that won

van der Merwe to Lee, 1 run

Lee heaves, gets a single, Somerset win. They were jetlagged when they started the competition, now they are one of the sides to watch out for

van der Merwe to Abdulla, 1 run

full on the pads, clipped away for a single to be extra sure

van der Merwe to Ryan ten Doeschate, OUT

RVD Merwe says, NIMBY. RTD comes down the ground, he spears in a yorker to take the middle stumps out. RTD goes back with a smile on his face. To those who used RTD so low in the order, remember class will out

Ryan ten Doeschate b van der Merwe 46 (51m 31b 1x4 3x6) SR: 148.38

Now for the win?

van der Merwe to Ryan ten Doeschate, 2 runs

RTD moves around in the crease, backs away, then goes across, gets inside the line, clipps it away, runs hard, gets the couple. Brett Lee has won many World Cups, but I haven't seen him celebrate as much. The game is still on, and he goes up to hug RTD

van der Merwe to Lee, 1 run

low full toss, hit straight to extra again, Lee has to dive full length to beat Thomas's throw

van der Merwe is a canny cricketer. Immediately he aborts the celebrations to tell the umpire the batsmen didn't cross. Brett lee to face now

van der Merwe to Bhatia, OUT

What has Bhatia done here? Low full toss, and he looks to chip this over extra cover. The idea is right, the execution isn't. A low catch for extra cover. The batsmen haven't crossed. new batsman on stirke

Rajat Bhatia c Thomas b van der Merwe 19 (16m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 135.71

"KKR's matches are as well scripted as their owner's movies." What are you alluding to, RS Sampat? Last over to go. Three for qualification, 17 to win. I am sure Kolkata are thinking of 153 right now. RVD Merwe to bowl

Thomas to Bhatia, 1 run

yorker, digs this out, soft hands, Bhatia takes the single. RTD trusts him to take first strike next over

Four to qualify, 18 to win

Thomas to Bhatia, 2 runs

Ruhuna are one shot from elimination. A length ball, Bhatia hits it down the ground, to the right of long-off, comes back for two more

Thomas to Bhatia, FOUR runs

with that, Somerset are through to the main draw. However, Gregory has misfielded at long-on. This was a single, Gregory took his eye off, looking up to throw, lets it slip through

Thomas to Bhatia, 2 runs

slower short ball, slapped to the left of long-on, takes the second again

Thomas to Bhatia, 2 runs

low full toss, drilled wide of long-on, comes back for two

Thomas to Bhatia, no run

Bhatia slogs, a very unBhatia-like moment of madness, the short-of-a-length ball misses the off stump
