    11.2 dumped into the hands of deep midwicket, and now Kent are in strife! Big intentions from Crawley, but clothed right off the toe of the bat, never in place for the shot, and the top-order is done! 75/4
    5.2 Roelof breaks out the roar with the double fist pump! Flights this more and tighter to off stump, DBD breaks out the slog sweep and pulverizes this straight to midwicket on the ring. Picks out Will Smeed on the ring at head height. Didn't have to move. Three yards left or right and it's a boundary. 44/1
    5.3 screamer by Abell running back from mid-off! Gregory was being picked on there and moves himself out before the next delivery in favor of Abell and it results in a magical piece of fielding. Roelof dragged the length back flighting this to Denly on fifth stump. Denly charged immediately but didn't get close to the pitch and skies a drive that swirls behind Abell more over extra cover. He has to run back 25 yards diagonally before diving to claim this. 10 out of 10 from the Ukrainian, Brazilian, Ugandan and Samoan judges! 44/2
    7.3 gifted to extra cover! Short and wide, really a nothing ball. Billings cleared the front leg backing away a bit too far from leg stump trying to get this through the off side and winds up slapping this more off the toe picking out Gregory on the ring. The captain moved himself out of mid-off in Roelof's last over leading to a spectacular catch from Abell and now it has worked out in a catch for himself inside the ring. 52/3
    15.6 another slower ball, dug into the pitch, Leaning can't time his pull as he top-edges to backward square. A gentle back-pedal to gather and Somerset make another dent 111/5

    18.4 low full toss, punched very full and straight, Stevens hustles back to the danger end, but he's caught short! Had a lot to do there, his ignition key gets stuck in the lock... 141/6
    19.2 another superb yorker, Davey rushes through to gather, as Cox decides to sacrifice his team-mate, calling him through for a suicide single. You couldn't play that stunt in the Hundred... 151/7

    0.2 flight, dip, turn, bails off! Banton is groping forward at this sucked fractionally out of his crease by Denly. This lovely ball landing on a good length on off stump rips past the edge and Billings lights up the stumps with Banton's foot ever so slightly in the air. 0/1
    10.5 low full toss, hacked out to deep midwicket, and it's that man Cox once more! A trot in from the rope, a moment to compose himself, then all hell breaks loose again as he celebrates with the glee of the vindicated! 79/4
    1.5 The battle of Dutch internationals heats up! First with van der Merwe in the field for Somerset and now Klaassen! Full on middle and leg, Goldsworthy is off balance coming down the track to flick over midwicket. But it's a cutter at 77 mph and he's through the shot a touch early. Leading edge balloons up to Bell-Drummond running back from cover and he takes a sharp catch over his shoulder falling back past the ring. 3/2
    8.3 too easy at backward point! Flights this more to encourage a drive on fourth stump on a full length, Abell pushes hard at this but doesn't cover the turn and it balloons off a thick edge to Klaassen on the ring, taken at chest height. 61/3
    12.6 pinned lbw! That's a huge moment for Denly and Kent! Just straightens from a leg-stump line as Lammonby leans across the crease to work to leg. No liberties being taken, just a misjudgement... but HawkEye reckons that was turning past leg! A misjudgement indeed! 89/5
    13.4 short, hoisted out to deep midwicket and another stunning moment from Jordan Cox! He's so in the game, he's taking it by the scruff of the neck! Cox leaps over the rope towards the Hollies Stand, sticks out his right hand, and doesn't even try to catch it, he simply bats it back like he's playing Eton Fives, and taps it into the waiting palms of Milnes! Incredible, even by the already incredible standards of relay catching! 94/6
    14.2 filthy pie, munched to short cover! Kent are cruising now, but that's a disgusting dismissal! A horrid wide full toss, vdM launches his bat through the line, and Denly doesn't blink as the ball nestles in his mitts. 95/7
    17.4 another one bites the dust! Wide of off, back of a length, another uncomplicated biff out to nowhere, and point backpedals to bring the trophy ever closer 119/9
    16.5 slow again, dragged from a wide line outside off, but Overton can't time it from out there! Leaning jogs in, steadies himself, swallows at his knees, and Kent are nearly home now! 113/8
