Eoin Morgan blasts Middlesex to domestic T20 world record run chase

The Guardian – Middlesex completed a world-record run chase to snatch a T20 Blast quarter-final place away from Somerset with a six-wicket win.

Summary

  • On a night of high drama, Eoin Morgan finished a stunning pursuit of Somerset’s 226 for five, with England’s World Cup-winning captain unbeaten on 83 from 29 balls to remarkably get his side home with three overs to spare.
  • Tom Abell’s maiden Twenty20 century, from 46 balls, had left Taunton rocking and Middlesex needing to complete a record chase in domestic T20 cricket anywhere in the world.
  • But Morgan continued his golden summer, blasting eight sixes and sharing an unbroken 99-run stand from 40 balls with George Scott, to book a quarter-final at Nottinghamshire next week.
  • Essex will travel to Durham to meet North Group winners Lancashire in the knockout stage.
  • The captain, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, hit 94 from 63 balls in the Yorkshire’s total of 200 for three.
