London: Somerset's Australian captain Jamie Cox will lead his side into the Trophy final at Lord's in September after an exciting four-wicket victory over Warwickshire at Taunton on Sunday.[an error occurred while processing this directive]That means he and his team will have a chance to atone for their 1999 disappointment when they were steamrollered by local rivals Gloucestershire in English cricket's showpiece occasion."To get back to Lord's means an enormous amount after missing out two years ago and especially after playing so badly. It means one hell of a lot," said Cox."We stuffed it up to be perfectly honest and we are all delighted to get back and have another crack at playing to our potential. I think we are a better side now.Things were looking bad for Cox, also Tasmania's captain, as his side stumbled in pursuit of a victory target of 229. But man-of-the-match Keith Dutch (61) steered Somerset home in an unbroken century partnership with wicket-keeper Rob Turner.For Dutch and fellow Middlesex old boy Richard Johnson a return to its former county's headquarters will be particularly sweet following its decision to move to Somerset at the start of this season.
