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 Faulkner, 2 runs, fuller length delivery which hits the stumps at the bowler's end off the drive of Faulkner, deflection gets it down towards the long-on and gets back for the required couple, this will do for them..

3 off 1, if tie, Lancashire will advance as they lost fewer wickets.

Coles to Faulkner, 2 runs, back of a length well outside off, reaches for it and gets it at the inside half of the bat, went to wide of long-on..
Coles to Faulkner, no run, a dot now..slower length delivery outside of as Faulkner gets down for a hoick and is beaten

5 off 3 balls.., hat-trick ball..

Coles to Croft, OUT, another wicket, two in two, swinging pendulum..on a length and outside off, strides forward and tries to slices that away over the cover region, not enough elevation onto it as it went towards the sweeper who gets under it and catches it with both hands..

SJ Croft c Cowdrey b Coles 4 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

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

JC Buttler c Blake b Coles 53 (43m 37b 5x4 3x6) SR: 143.24

Buttler on strike..

Coles to Croft, 1 run, fullish and outside off, works it away through cover for a single
