Twenty20 Cup - Midlands/West/Wales Division
Somerset 173-6 Innings Complete v Warwickshire 177-6 (J O Troughton 57)
Warwickshire beat Somerset by 4 wkts
Warwickshire booked their place in the Twenty20 Cup quarter-finals with a nail-biting four-wicket win over Somerset at Edgbaston.
Despite conceding their highest total of the season - 173-6 - Warwickshire paced their chase to perfection with former England one-day international Jim Troughton leading the way with a competition-best of 57.
The left-hander dominated a second-wicket stand of 89 with Jonathan Trott (48) as the hosts passed their target with just two balls to spare.
Somerset had earlier flown out of the traps with dynamic opening pair Marcus Trescothick (21) and Justin Langer (44) putting on 68 for the first wicket.
But Somerset lost momentum after Langer was bowled off-stump driving at Tim Groenewald and Trescothick perished two balls later when he clipped to mid-on.
Groenewald flattened Ian Blackwell's middle stump on his way to a competition best 3-40 and Warwickshire spinners Ant Botha and Ian Salisbury then strangled the middle order, returning combined figures of 3-47.
A late flourish from Arul Suppiah (32) and Omari Banks (32) propelled Sabres up to 173-6 with the former West Indies off-spinner smashing two huge sixes late on.
The Bears' chase got off to a miserable start when pinch-hitter Neil Carter was dismissed by Mark Turner for a golden duck.
Troughton and Trott rebuilt the chase superbly and despite both departing in quick succession, Warwickshire held their nerve to maintain their unbeaten record and stay on course for a home quarter-final.
