Somerset Sabres 298-6 Innings Complete (C Kieswetter 89, W J Durston 60 no, M E Trescothick 55, A J Harris 4-47) v Worcestershire Royals 298-6 (V S Solanki 94, S M Davies 92)
Somerset tied with Worcestershire
Daryl Mitchell's deft four off the final ball of the match saw a fascinating Pro40 clash between Somerset and Worcestershire end in a tie at Taunton.
Another run-fest at the county ground came down to the very last delivery after the Royals had come within touching distance of the 299 target set by the hosts.
Craig Kieswetter was again the Sabres' hero as he blazed a quick-fire 89 to add to fine contributions from Marcus Trescothick (55) and James Hildreth (60).
The Royals flew out of the traps in response with a scintillating 181 opening partnership from Steve Davies (92) and Vikram Solanki (94).
And with 12 runs required off the final Mark Turner over, Worcestershire held their nerve before Mitchell flicked the ball past Charl Willoughby at short fine-leg to clinch a share of the spoils.
After winning the toss and deciding to bat, captain Justin Langer perished for just five after a fine delivery from Andrew Harris caught the Australian's outside edge and Davies did the rest.
However, Trescothick was finding life a lot easier, and he and Kieswetter picked up from where they left off in the previous Pro40 fixture against Gloucestershire with a brutal display of hitting.
Both men passed their half-centuries at lightning pace, however, Trescothick failed in his quest for back-to-back centuries when he was superbly caught by Mitchell at cover off the bowling of Gareth Andrew.
The dismissal of their key man failed to stutter Sabres' run rate as the impressive Kieswetter - ably supported by Zander de Bruyn continued the hosts' assault on the Royals attack.
The pair added 99 for the third wicket before Harris dismissed de Bruyn (45) and James Hildreth (0) in the space of two balls.
Wes Durston joined Kieswetter in the middle and, just as the latter looked destined for his second century in as many matches, he was trapped LBW by Imran Arif for a superb 89.
Peter Trego (32) and Durston (60) produced some fine ball striking at the death to propel the Sabres up to a daunting 298-6.
The Pears set about their run chase in breathtaking fashion as Solanki and Davies blasted the Sabres opening bowlers out of the attack with a fine array of strokes.
Both men powered into the 90's, and just as both looked set for well-deserved centuries, the pair perished in the space of 18 runs.
Davies was the first to go after his 60-ball knock was brought to an end when he was stumped off Omari Banks attempting one shot too many.
Stephen Moore (9) and Solanki then fell in successive balls as the Royals sensed a route back into the match.
Veteran pain Graeme Hick and Ben Smith added an invaluable 45 for the fourth wicket, only for the latter to fall for 20 when he was bowled by de Bruyn.
Hick (40) and Moeen Ali (21) kept up with the rate, however both players fell in the penultimate over as Alfonso Thomas turned the match on its head.
It was left to Turner to bowl the decisive final over, and a wide off the first ball did little to settle the medium-pacer's nerves.
A fine four from Gareth Batty left the Pears needing six runs from two balls, and after hitting just a single off the penultimate ball of the match it looked as if the game was out of the Royals reach.
However, Mitchell held his nerve superbly as he stepped across to the off-side before flicking the ball past Willoughby to ensure both side's left the field with a point apiece.
