Natwest T20 Blast: Somerset (166-5) beat Middlesex (162-6) by five wickets

Middlesex’s troublesome run of form in the Natwest T20 Blast continued with a five-wicket loss at Somerset.

Daniel Vettori’s men have now lost four of their last five in the competition, having won just twice in their first seven matches.

After losing the toss in Taunton, the visitors were put into bat, but smashed 25 off the opening three overs, before losing Brendon McCullum for just seven.

Fellow opener Nick Gubbins went soon after for 21, which saw Eoin Morgan join John Simpson at the crease.
