    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
    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
    4.1 gone! What a start from Mahmood. Superb yorker and Jefferson is cleaned up with middle stump out of the ground 34/3
    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
    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
    16.5 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

    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
    5.2 gone! Perfect response from Henderson who traps Smith lbw as he went for the sweep. That looked pretty straight 42/1
    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
    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
    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

    10.3 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

  • Leicestershire's celebrations muted despite win

    Leicestershire captain Matthew Hoggard's celebrations were muted despite his side, ultimately, prevailing over Lancashire in a Super Over Eliminator to book their place in the Friends Life t20 Final

  • Leicestershire hold nerve in Eliminator

    Twenty20 Finals Day was introduced to its first One-over Eliminator as a mad-cap semi-final swung one way and the other before settling in Leicestershire's favour as Will Jefferson clubbed 15 runs of four balls in a dramatic finish
