Somerset beat Middlesex in the Royal London One Day Cup
Middlesex won the toss and decided to field at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton in this Royal London One Day Cup match today.
Somerset 283 (Peter Trego 65, Lewis Gregory 56, Roelof van der Merwe 52; Steve Finn 4-65)
Middlesex 230 (John Simpson 77; Paul van Meekeren 3-32)
Result Somerset won by 53 runs
Peter Trego 65, Lewis Gregory 56 and Roelof van der Merwe 52 batted Somerset to a reasonable total after Steve Finn (4-65) had removed both openers, bowling at pace. Somerset eventually got to 283 all out.
Middlesex had a poor start and were 39-3, and then 84-6, in their response, and from there they never looked like winning this tie and were bowled out for 230, after a late flourish from Ravi Patel 24*and Steve Finn 17. Paul van Meekeren 3-32 was the pick of the Somerset bowlers.
