Commentary

5.20pm: Well, it wasn't pretty, by any means, but Surrey dug themselves out of a hole of their own making to reach the last four of the Blast. Jason Roy got them well ahead with that 20-ball half-century and Robin Peterson kept cool at the end... It's tough on Worcestershire, who have still never got further than the quarter-finals, but their total never looked like being enough. All of Surrey's bowlers chipped in, only Richard Oliver and Joe Leach made it to 20 for Worcestershire; big city trumps small town again. With that dynamic in mind, Birmingham are the outsiders travelling to Chelmsford for the evening fixture, with the toss about to take place - join Gnasher for full commentary starting shortly.

Choudhry to Peterson, FOUR runs, tossed up, bit of a heave from Peterson and the ball disappears through mid-off, no one there, wins it with a four - Surrey win by three wickets and will go to Finals Day for the second year running

Up comes the field, just a couple needed to win

6
Choudhry to Peterson, SIX runs, down on one knee, slogged over wide long-on, that could be decisive, Peterson hitting with the turn and it sails into the crowd

I think Batty is being told to calm down by the umpires... Sounds about right

1
Choudhry to Batty, 1 run, tossed up outside off stump, drops back and cuts a single through square

Down to brass tacks now, Surrey only need nine, three wickets still standing... Choudhry backon

END OF OVER:
16 | 8 Runs 1 Wkt | Surr: 133/7

Munro to Peterson, FOUR runs, short ball, taking the pace off but Peterson plays it well, delayed the pull and then got it fine, runs for a potentially vital boundary

Munro to Batty, 1 run, short ball from Munro, pulled powerfully, looked to be beating Oliver at deep midwicket but he sticks out a hand and pulls off a terrific stop

Munro to Batty, no run, good length outside off and chopped into the off side
