    Friends Life T20 comes to an end.

    August 27th 2011 - This weekend we witnessed triple headers (Two Semi Finals and a Final) climaxing the Friends Life T20 tournament in Birmingham, England. We've had an extraordinary day at Friends T20, two one over eliminators in both semifinals witnessed for the first time in T20 cricket, we haven't seen one but two in a row. Leicester held their nerve to clinch the first semi final with an extraordinary finish.

    Jefferson played brilliantly and specially the last shot he played, crowd loved the moment, Leicestershire a small county let by Paul Nixon pulled an astonishing performance to move into the finals.


    Shahid Afridi Scoring 80 


    On the second game Shahid Afridi scored 80 for Hampshire and the arrival of rain took the game to DL. The game tied again and Craig Kieswetter and Buttler scored 16 off Shahid Afridi in the Eliminator (Super Over). Alfonso Thomas's bowled a magnificent super over to keep Afridi from getting close to 16 and winning the semifinal.

    Paul Nixon Brilliant behind the wickets


    The final match between Somerset and Leicestershire was a classic example of catches win matches. Paul Nixon took a stunning one handed catch from the back of the stumps to get rid of Kieron Pollard. There were other outstanding catches taken by Leicestershire's fielders to dissmiss Somerset for 127. It was a fairtale ending for Leicestershire and Paul Nixon would not have wished for any better ending of his career.

    Leicestershire 145 for 6 (Jefferson 35, Pollard 2-24) beat Somerset 127 for 9 (Trego 35, Cobb 4-22) by 18 runs.

    At the end of T20 (20 overs) cricket match  if both teams are tied at the same score then a Super over is played which means that each side get to bowl a six ball over and have two wickets. So only 3 batsemen can bat in the Super over.

    The team scoring highest number of runs wins the match.
