Ten Doeschate stars in Essex win

Twenty20 Cup, Chelmsford:
Essex 164-9 (20 overs) beat Surrey 94 all out (17 overs) by 70 runs

A fine all-round performance from Ryan ten Doeschate saw Essex condemn Surrey to their fifth Twenty20 Cup defeat after a 70-run thrashing at Chelmsford.

Set 165 to win, only three Surrey batsmen managed to score double figures as Ten Doeschate finished off the innings with figures of 4-24.

Graham Napier, Maurice Chambers and Danish Kaneria each took two wickets.

Essex's James Foster (41) continued his excellent batting form, while Ten Doeschate added 35 from 16 balls.

The visitors lost their last eight wickets for just 41 runs as they crashed to their lowest ever Twenty20 Cup total.

Half of those wickets were courtesy of Ten Doeschate, who claimed his best bowling figures in the competition.

Earlier, The Dutch all-rounder had put on 64 from only 28 deliveries with Foster for the fourth wicket after joining the wicketkeeper in the 13th over.

The pair smashed five sixes and three fours to help Essex to 164-9 from their 20 overs.

Surrey began in the worst possible way when Scott Newman was dismissed by Graham Napier with the first ball of their innings.

Leg-spinner Kaneria made a sensational start when he removed the dangerous Alistair Brown (22) and Abdul Razzaq (0) in his first over.

And when Napier had Ramprakash trapped lbw for 18, Surrey's innings imploded.
