T20 Blast recap: Patel scores 104 to draw, Bears and Surrey win

Somerset shook off the early defeat of Will Smeed and scored a score of 188-4 against Gloucestershire in Bristol, with opener Tom Banton scoring 79 from 53 balls.

They appeared to be favourites when spinner Jack Leach (2-36) had Beau Webster caught in the 14th over, leaving the home side 108-5 – but Ben Charlesworth and Ollie Price were up to the challenge with an unbroken stand of 82.

Price hit four sixes off just 15 balls in his 43 not out matches, while Charlesworth made 36 off 19 to take them to 190-5 with eight balls to spare and inflict a third defeat on defending champions Somerset – the club’s second-highest T20 comeback.

In the last game of the day Sussex moved up to second place with a seven-point win over Hampshire at the Utilita Bowl after scoring 184-8 despite numbers of 3-32 from Michael Neser.

James Vince reached his first T20 half-century of the summer before being bowled by James Coles for 53 and adding 88 with Joe Weatherley.

Needing an improbable 25 in the final over, Weatherley hit four consecutive fours off Danny Lamb to reach 68 in 47 balls. But they only managed a bye on the last two deliveries and finished on 177-3.
