Result: Yasir Arafat inspires Hampshire to T20 Blast quarter-finals

Hampshire book a T20 Blast quarter-final place following a six-run win over Somerset at the Ageas Bowl.

Yasir Arafat took four wickets as Hampshire beat Somerset by six runs to book their place in the quarter-finals of the T20 Blast at the Ageas Bowl tonight.

The hosts set a target of 143 as opener Michael Carberry proved the stand-out performer at the crease with a knock of 57.

James Vince (24) and an unbeaten 21 from Gareth Berg contributed to Hampshire's innings, which saw them lose seven wickets, with Max Waller taking three of them.

Arafat came to the fore early on in the visitors' innings, limiting them to 35 runs in the opening half-hour by dismissing Adam Hose (20) and Jim Allenby (35).

Will Smith helped restrict Somerset's fluency by removing Peter Trego (10) and Tom Cooper (27).

Arafat then sent Lewis Gregory and Craig Overton packing with a combined 29 between them as Somerset finished on 137-8.
