Somerset spinner Suppiah sets new 20-20 bowling record


July 6, 2011 - London

Somerset's British-Malaysian spinner Arul Suppiah took world-record Twenty20 figures of 6-5 in a five-wicket victory away to Glamorgan Dragons in Cardiff on Tuesday.uppiah's record figures - which bettered Sohail Tanvir's 6-14 for Rajasthan Royals against Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League in May 2008 - came from 3.4 overs as all 10 Glamorgan wickets fell to Somerset spinners.

Glamorgan were put into bat and had no answer to Suppiah and Somerset's other two spinners, Murali Kartik and Max Waller.

With the match reduced to 18 overs per side because of rain, Glamorgan were dismissed for just 98 - their second worst total in the Friends Life t20 cricket tournament - in 17.4 overs.

West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard made 31 not out off 20 balls as Somerset won with 21 balls to spare.
