Yorkshire celebrate, T&T are distraught.
Tim Bresnan tweets: "Unbelievable partnership between @AdilRashid03 and Gaz very well played lads look forward to watching and supporting. Take a bow son."
T&T really had no depth in their bowling, Rampaul and Badree were terrific at the top but the likes on Emrit, Mohammed, Simmons and Cooper were just not enough of a threat. Of course, with Dwayne Bravo, Pollard and Narine missing, you can't be too harsh on them.
Sujan: "Its such a IRONY that two teams from the world T20 finalist countries wont be participating in the main tournament."
Yorkshire and Auckland's wins means we will have two dead rubbers tomorrow, matches which will be up there in the list of meaningless matches.
Ravi B: "So, what is the point of the 2 matches tomorrow? It's better they call off these matches." I'm with you.
Denesh Ramdin: "I think it was a good target, we were three down early, they bowled quite well. 150-160 was probably a good target, we didn't get the target we wanted. In the middle overs, Adil and the other guy batted very well. We are here to put on a good show, we'd like to win tomorrow."
Andrew Gale: "We are over the moon to get through the qualifying phase. We felt we could have bowled them out, it was a little bit below par, we need we had to play well. Me and Jaques didn't get many runs, we needed something special, Ballance and Adi provided it. Ballance has played some special knocks for us in the domestic competitions for us. Adil has batted twice in pressure situations, he has played phenomenally well, I take my hat off to him."
Man of the Match is Gary Ballance: "Absolutely delighted, we have worked hard all season. Basically, we just wanted to keep going, score a boundary an over, and take it deep."
Arthur: "The tourney already has concerns regarding spectator attendance. To spice things up, we have two dead rubbers tomorrow. Awesome!"
Righto, we are done with today's games. Join us, if you have absolutely nothing better to do, for tomorrow's totally pointless matches. G'night!
Rampaul can't work the magic.
Simon: "If we're going to change the format, how about an equal number of sides from each country and no pre-tournament mini-tournament." Don't expect it any time soon Simon.
T&T can afford to play out this over with a few singles.
30 runs in the last two overs has turned this game. It also means Rampaul has to be brought back earlier than T&T wanted.
