It was the third time Somerset has won by an innings and runs with the other two harkening back to the 1940s. If it wasn’t for a 97-run ninth wicket partnership of between Onias Bascome and Zeko Burgess, Somerset might have had the most significant margin of victory ever in the annals of the Classic.

An innings win has only happened nine times in the history of Cup Match, four times by the 1960s St George’s team, which also had three 10-wicket victories.
