You can't ask for more! Lancashire advances to the finals day as they lost fewer wickets. Wicket of Prince at the penultimate over starts this nail-biter which was almost a easy-peasy outing till then for the Lancashire, and Coles made it even interesting with two wickets in the start of the last over, but Faulkner gets the required four runs and ends it in a tie.

Buttler named man of the match. That's all for tonight, stay cool and safe. Happy weekend, cheers!

Coles to Buttler, OUT, oh my Lord! Buttler gone, this game is still even, short of a length and outside off, a bit slowish I assume. Buttler reaches for it and tries to slap it down the ground, top edges it which skies towards the sight screen, Blake ran across from long-on and pouches it

Claydon to Prince, OUT, holes out to the man at the deep, some twist? A nothing delivery but a wicket and that too of Price, goes for 62. A full toss on the middle as he flicks that straight and flat into the hands of deepish midwicket, Denly hardly moved from his place, comfortable catch

Thomas to Buttler, FOUR runs, gets a boundary, this will hurt a lot to Lancashire, a low full toss on the leg, clips it through backward of square leg, the man there could have done a bit better
17.2

Thomas to Buttler, no run, follows him down the leg with a fullish delivery, Buttler driven it back towards the bowler, does it get something on it as it hits the stumps on the non-striker's end, Prince was backing up, a bit of finger tips onto it? Calls the tv umpire, checks with the two available angles, not enough conclusive evidence to judge that out, and rightly so, he is safe..
