Match scorecard

James Hildreth hammered his first Twenty20 hundred to take Somerset to victory over Glamorgan at Taunton.

Chasing Glamorgan's 178-5, inspired by Aussie Shaun Marsh's 85, Hildreth hit 107 not out off 60 balls as Somerset got home on 182-6 with a ball to spare.

Marsh's 85 came off 52 deliveries, supported by the Dragons' two other overseas-born players Martin van Jaarsveld (36) and Jim Allenby (33).

But, after slumping to 24-3, Hildreth kept his head for a four-wicket win.
