So Hampshire join Yorkshire in the Friends Life t20 final and also reach the Champions League Twenty20. It's Somerset's first defeat in a T20 semi-final. Close, again, for them but nothing to show. A very solid all-round display from Hampshire, led by the medium-pace and spin bowlers, then they overcame a little wobble to chase the runs down with an over to spare. We'll be back at around 6.30pm with the build-up to the final which starts at 6.45pm. See you a little later.

Thomas to Katich, 2 runs, that's the game! Low full toss outside off, pushed down the ground, beats mid-off and they get back for the winning second

Thomas to Ervine, 1 run, tried to finish the game there but his well-time drive couldn't quite beat mid-off

Sean Ervine has had an excellent match with bat and ball
