Surrey beat Warwickshire after bowl-out

Tim Murtagh
Murtagh clinched a dramatic win for Surrey

For the first time in Twenty20 Cup history a bowl-out decided the winners as Surrey reached the semi-finals at Warwickshire's expense.

Warwickshire equalled the home side's score of 149 for eight when they reached 117 for eight under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

That meant that the players had to use cricket's version of the penalty shoot-out to choose a winner.

And even that went to sudden death before Tim Murtagh hit the stumps.

In the cricket proper, Mark Ramprakash, batting down at seven, gave Surrey a moderate total of 149-8 to defend after the top order had failed to get going.

Jon Trott took 2-19 in his four overs.

Warwickshire lost two early wickets in their run chase before the break for rain.

The best individual score for Warwickshire was Jim Troughton's 21 as the wickets continued to tumble.

And when Dewald Pretorius hit two runs off the final ball, the bowl-out was the only way to pick a winner.
