Friends Life t20 - 1st semi final
Match tied (D/L method) (Leicestershire won the one-over eliminator)
27 August 2011 (20-over match)
  Leicestershire innings (18 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JJ Cobb c †Cross b Chapple 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 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 0/1
View dismissal AB McDonald c Parry b Maharoof 7 17 9 1 0 77.77
3.6 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 34/2
View dismissal WI Jefferson b Mahmood 23 19 15 5 0 153.33
4.1 gone! What a start from Mahmood. Superb yorker and Jefferson is cleaned up with middle stump out of the ground 34/3
View dismissal J du Toit st †Cross b Keedy 16 20 12 2 0 133.33
8.2 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. 67/4
View dismissal JWA Taylor st †Cross b Parry 19 29 23 1 0 82.60
11.1 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 82/5
View dismissal PA Nixon run out (†Cross/Mahmood) 19 30 18 1 0 105.55
16.5 Mahmood to Abdul Razzaq, 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 122/6

8.2 to du Toit, 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. 67/4
  Lancashire innings (target: 80 runs from 11 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SC Moore c Taylor b Cobb 43 36 31 7 1 138.70
9.4 gone! Two in two. The game is turning. Moore sliced it and couldn't clear Taylor at backward point and Taylor is the shortest man out there! 65/4
View dismissal TC Smith lbw b Henderson 9 21 8 1 0 112.50
5.2 gone! Perfect response from Henderson who traps Smith lbw as he went for the sweep. That looked pretty straight 42/1
View dismissal SJ Croft c Henderson b McDonald 10 7 16 1 0 62.50
8.2 gone! McDonald strikes first ball, Croft goes for a huge heave and sends it miles into the air. Henderson steadies himself running back from short third man to hold a superb catch under pressure 53/2
View dismissal KR Brown c White b Cobb 2 3 3 0 0 66.66
9.3 big wicket and another dot ball! Leicestershire cling on. Brown came down the track and tried to clear long-off, where White almost made a real mess of it but recovered very well 65/3
View dismissal PJ Horton c Cobb b White 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
10.1 gone! he strikes first ball, but the dot ball is as important as the wicket as Horton picks out long off 69/5
GD Cross not out 12 8 5 0 1 240.00
View dismissal SI Mahmood run out (du Toit/†Nixon/White) 1 2 1 0 0 100.00
10.3 from White, a mix up, they get a single but Mahmood is stranded having tried to come back for the second. Vital point: just one run. 71/6
