Somerset vs Derbyshire

Somerset, led by South Africa’s Rilee Rossouw, registered a record 191-run win over Derbyshire in the English Twenty20 Blast quarter-finals on Saturday. In front of their own fans in Taunton, South-West County Somerset scored a mammoth 265-5 – the highest total in English domestic T20 history. The previous record for the highest team total was held by Birmingham Bears, who won Nottinghamshire last month. Had scored a huge score of 261 runs against him.

Derbyshire, in a huge chase, couldn’t do much. The entire team was bundled out for 74 runs in 12 overs. Former Australia fast bowler Peter Siddle took 3 for 10 for Somerset. The 191 run margin of victory was the highest in a T20I match in England.

Former Proteas international Rilee Rossouw (32) became Somerset’s most prolific scorer in a T20 season with a strike rate of 197.36 with 600 runs at an average of 50 with the help of seven sixes and eight fours. Tom Banton scored 73 runs in 41 balls, while Tom Lamonby scored 31 off nine as Somerset scored 56 runs in the last three overs.

Amidst all the blazing hitting, George Scrimshaw’s figures were superb. While all bowlers were spending above 10 runs per over, Scrimshaw took a highly reliable 2-16 and it could have been a different story had Derbyshire bowled their four overs straight from the start.

In contrast, Derbyshire leg-spinner Matty McKiernan scored 82 runs in his four overs, the most expensive figures in men’s T20 cricket history, including 36 runs in an over, with Rossouw hitting five sixes and a four. Only with a barrage of boundaries was interrupted by a no ball off the fourth ball.

Banton got a lifeline on 29 and went on to score a 33-ball half-century and Rossouw completed his half-century in 24. Together they shared a 102-run partnership in 8.2 overs. Derbyshire, without in-form captain Shan Masood, rolled 42-4 within six overs after Pakistan’s batsman was called up for the Test tour of Sri Lanka, with Siddle removing Lewis Rees and stand-in captain Lewis. Hit twice in three balls. In the fourth over, du Ploy caught Hilton Cartwright on the wrong bridge. The win meant Somerset joined Yorkshire, Hampshire and Lancashire on the day of the final at Edgbaston next week.
