Alexei Kervezee's half-century helped setup Worcestershire for an eight-run victory over Somerset in the FL t20.

The Dutch international, supported by Moeen Ali (27) and Andre Russell (21), hit 53 from 42 balls to take his side to 168-7.

Marcus Trescothick spearheaded the Somerset reply, finishing one shy of 50 after fellow opener Craig Kieswetter was caught off Jack Shantry for a duck.

But the hosts fell short as Joe Leach and Shantry took three wickets each.

The result sees Worcestershire draw level with fourth-placed Somerset in the Midlands, Wales & West Group on four points, along with Warwickshire in third.
