   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: A Thomas M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore (5 Oct 2011)

Tsotsobe got rid of Trego for a duck, but Kiewswetter and VDM put up a rapid partnership before VDM fell with Somerset at 48/2 after 6 with 51% COW. Kieswetter continued with Hildreth and later with Buttler as he scored another fifty as Somerset posted 146/4 with 44% COW. This was not a formidable total and Warriors must have fancied their chances as they went about the chase. They lost Prince early but Smuts and Ingram kept the scoreboard ticking as Warriors reached 71/2 after 10 with 84% COW. But they were in for a surprise as Somerset bowlers turned the match around with some brilliant bowling and choked the runs as they stumbled to 134/8 to lose by 12 runs.
