Chairman Andy Nash says Somerset can be proud of their achievements after reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League Twenty20.

Somerset lost in Saturday's final-four match to Mumbai, who went on to beat Bangalore in the final.

Nash told the club's websiteexternal-link: "It makes me immensely proud to be part of Somerset. Without question, it has been a hugely successful season.

"It has been fantastic to be part of an historical trip."

Somerset secured their Champions League place by reaching the final of the domestic FL t20 but lost to Leicestershire by 18 runs at Edgbaston.

After winning Group B in qualification, Somerset went through to the main tournament and won one of their three group matches to reach the semi-final.

"We made a lot of friends out in India. The players really enjoyed pitting themselves against some of the best cricketers in the world," Nash added.

"Of course we want to win trophies and that will come. We are doing all the right things."
