5.10pm: So, same as result as in the second semi-final last year, Lancashire through and hoping to break their duck in the competition. James Vince says he thought his team needed "another 20 runs" to have pushed the game closer - this was Hampshire's third consecutive semi-final defeat at Edgbaston. Steven Croft suggests his team haven't played their "perfect game" yet but they're hoping to do so in the final. After more than three months of competition, it will be third versus fourth from the North Group in the final; join us again in an hour or so for the toss (and cross your fingers for more runs).
