Hi I was just wondering if there was anyone on here that had a copy of the highlights of the 2002 C&G Semi Final between Somerset and Kent? A long shot I know.


I had a copy but unfortunately it no longer works. It also had the televised match between the same two teams from the year before. I'd love to see the game again if it was possible. I have a few games which I could give in return. Thanks.

Can't help with a copy of the highlights dmw. This You Tube video of the end might be a small consolation if you haven't seen it. Or for anyone who, like me, had completely forgotten this match. Must not have been allowed out of my exile that day.

Thanks FW.

Think that is the first time I have seen the end of the game, having made the stupid mistake of leaving 5 minutes earlier to beat the traffic, in the safe and certain knowledge that we had been soundly beaten !

That was one of the most sensational finishes I have ever seen. A Somerset win was clearly impossible with two overs to go, but ...

I drove from London and back to watch the match on one of the summer's very best days.

I have a VHS copy of the whole game (I think). However I am presently working through my Videos to see what I have and what state they are in. The recording may not be good and I may not be able to transfer it to a digital format. If you PM me I'll keep you abreast of what happens in the next month.

The most memorable thing about the end of the match was a few seconds of stunned silence just after Dutch took the catch. A moment of disbelief that Somerset had done the impossible and then the ground erupted in the cacophony of noise that is evident on the U Tube clip. A great day out.
