Tremlett inspires Surrey's rout of leaders

Surrey kept up their charge for a place in the Friends Life t20 quarter-finals by making short work of South Division leaders Hampshire at The Oval last night.

Hampshire, who had been beaten only once in their previous 13 matches, could not recover from losing their first four wickets for nine runs in four overs, three of them to their former player Chris Tremlett, and were eventually all out for 113 to lose by 38 runs.

Chasing a target of 152, Hampshire lost Jimmy Adams, caught behind off Yasir Arafat to the third ball of the innings and events went from bad to worse for the visitors in Tremlett's first two overs.

James Vince carved Tremlett to deep backward point, where Dirk Nannes held a fine running catch, Neil McKenzie, who had already been dropped at fine leg off Nannes, was caught behind, and Sean Ervine slashed to Jason Roy at point.

Liam Dawson and Shahid Afridi, who had also been dropped in the covers off Nannes, saved Hampshire from a rout by putting on 51 in six overs for the fifth wicket. But then Afridi, who had made 36 from 26 balls with four fours and a six, was caught in the covers off Zafar Ansari.

Tim Southee returned the best figures by an Essex bowler in the competition as Glamorgan went down by five wickets at Chelmsford.

The right-arm paceman included a hat-trick in his four-wicket final over as he finished with 6-16, and Glamorgan reached a total of 144-9.

Nick James, Stewart Walters and Alex Jones were the hat-trick victims of Southee as the Welsh county collapsed after moving into three figures in the 15th over with only two wickets down. Essex did not find the going easy in reply, losing three wickets for 36 in the first six overs but Scott Styris guided them home with five balls to spare.

Jos Buttler smashed an unbeaten 72 from 45 balls as Somerset strengthened their chances of reaching the quarter-finals with a 15-run win over Gloucestershire at Taunton. Leicestershire snatched a dramatic victory against Derbyshire at Grace Road to clinch a home tie in the last eight. Chasing 151, the Foxes hit 89 runs from the final 10 overs to win by two wickets with one ball to spare.
