Blackwell edges Somerset to win
Totesport League Division Two, Taunton: Somerset 345-4 (45 overs) beat Yorkshire 343-9 (45 overs) by 2 runs

Matt Wood and Ian Blackwell both hit centuries to help Somerset to a desperately-close two-run win over Yorkshire in Taunton.

Wood's excellent 129 had to play second fiddle to Blackwell's 114 off 61 balls in Somerset's 345-4 - a total that looked enough for a comfortable win.

But Matthew Wood (52) and Phil Jaques (66) took on the challenge, putting on 121 for Yorkshire's first wicket.

Needing 23 off the last over, Deon Kruis hit 20 to leave Yorkshire short.

Blackwell bowled the final over for Somerset, and after an initial dot ball was hit for a six and three successive fours.

The final ball of the match went for two as Kruis' heroics ended agonisingly short of the target.
