Friends Life t20 - 1st semi final

Lancashire v Leicestershire

Match tied (D/L method) (Leicestershire won the one-over eliminator)

0.1

Chapple to Cobb, OUT, gone! First ball. What a start for Lancashire! Cobb pushes outside off and it's a sharp catch from Gareth Cross. There was a hint of movement, but it was a nervous shot from Cobb

JJ Cobb c †Cross b Chapple 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Leicestershire 0/1   AB McDonald 0* (0b)   G Chapple 0.1-0-0-1

3.6

Maharoof to McDonald, OUT, gone! Big wicket as McDonald doesn't get hold of a pull and picks out mid-on. Lancashire needed that. The tournament's top scoring falls and he's broken his bat as well. Looks like the broken bat cost him his wicket, meant he couldn't get any power in the shot

AB McDonald c Parry b Maharoof 7 (17m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Leicestershire 34/2   WI Jefferson 23* (14b 5x4)   MF Maharoof 2-0-10-1

4.1

Mahmood to Jefferson, OUT, gone! What a start from Mahmood. Superb yorker and Jefferson is cleaned up with middle stump out of the ground

WI Jefferson b Mahmood 23 (19m 15b 5x4 0x6) SR: 153.33

Leicestershire 34/3   J du Toit 0* (0b)   SI Mahmood 0.1-0-0-1

8.2

Keedy to du Toit, OUT, lovely bowling, what a way to answer the reverse sweep. Keedy tossed this up and it turned sharply past the outside edge as du Toit came down the pitch. Simple stumping.

J du Toit st †Cross b Keedy 16 (20m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Leicestershire 67/4   JWA Taylor 15* (13b 1x4)   G Keedy 0.2-0-4-1

11.1

Parry to Taylor, OUT, gone this time! There's help for the spinners. Taylor comes down the track and is beaten by turn from Parry (who has spun it less than Keedy) and Cross makes up for his earlier miss. Sketchy innings from Taylor

JWA Taylor st †Cross b Parry 19 (29m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 82.60

Leicestershire 82/5   PA Nixon 9* (7b 1x4)   SD Parry 2.1-0-11-1

16.5

Mahmood to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, has a huge swing, doesn't leave his crease but Paul Nixon sprinted up for the bye and sacrifices himself to ensure Razzaq stays in

PA Nixon run out 19 (30m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 105.55

Leicestershire 122/6   Abdul Razzaq 29* (23b 1x4 3x6)   SI Mahmood 2.5-0-30-1
