Azhar Al

Somerset whipped Nottinghamshire by 115 keeps running at Trent Scaffold to achieve the last of the One-Day Glass.

Azhar Ali (72) and Dwindle Trego (73) established the framework for the Somerset innings before some lower-request firecrackers took them to 337 full scales.

Notts began the pursuit well, with Ben Slater and Alex Hales making fifties, yet they crumbled from 110-1 to 156-6.

After a concise rally, the home side was in the long run astounded out in the 39th for only 222.

Triumph for Somerset implies a first Ruler’s last for a long time and they will trust this is the event that they break their poor ongoing record there. The province has lost their past three finals at the Home of Cricket, last lifting a trophy at the well known old ground in 2001.

Notts attempted to contain Somerset at either end of their innings, in spite of Jake Ball (4-62) twice taking two wickets in an over, and afterward lost their way in answer amid a urgent 12-over spell in the wake of moving into a solid position while Slater (58) and Hales (54) were as one.

The Somerset top three of Tom Banton (59), Azhar and Trego had scored at a normal or faster than a run-a-ball to give the guests a great begin.

At the point when James Hildreth immediately pursued Azhar back to the structure Somerset revamped, and later after Lewis Gregory and Roelof van der Merwe were rejected, Craig and Jamie Overton laid attack to the Notts assault, including 47 between them from just 31 balls.

Having achieved a comparable position of solidarity with the bat, Nottinghamshire neglected to underwrite, with Van der Merwe’s 3-29 the pick of the Somerset assault as they serenely verified their spot in the last.
