6:55pm Loads of hugs exchanged in the Surrey camp. Having been promoted from the second division, Surrey now have an opportunity to accomplish a double. After Sanga's masterclass, Sam Curran struck twice in two balls in his first over to reduce Notts to 1 for 2, they later slumped to 16 for 3. Patel, Christian, Smith rallied the chase while Mullaney struck some fierce blows at the end... but Dernbach held his nerve in the penultimate over, giving away only five runs for the wicket of Read. Tom Curran finished it off with a tight last over. Phew, what a game! Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. That's all we have for you tonight. Do come back and tag in for the big final on September 19. Until then, tata, cheerio.

Kumar Sangakkara has been named Man of the Match.

Srihari: "The way Dernbach and in particular, Tom Curran executed their yorkers at the death bodes well for the future of English cricket."

49.6
TK Curran to Mullaney, no run
Surrey book final date with Gloucs at Lord's. Pretty full and outside off, Mullaney nips down the track and only crashes a drive to wide long-off

Notts need 5 off the last ball. Broad and Mullaney have a chat. Dernbach, Batty and Tom are in the middle of a mini-conference.

TK Curran to Mullaney, 2 runs
length and outside off, down the track and dragged to long-on for another two

Rubesh Murugan: "Curran or Mullaney?"

TK Curran to Mullaney, FOUR runs
Mullaney jumps down the track, then goes low. He manufactures a full toss and whips it away behind square on the leg side for four, shortest boundary exploited well

TK Curran to Mullaney, 2 runs
very full and outside off, Mullaney drills a drive to deep cover. The throw is awry, well wide of the keeper. The batsman scampers back for the second
49.2
TK Curran to Mullaney, no run
too full and outside off, Mullaney does not connect with a lap-sweep. The ball brushes the pad and runs away towards the covers. Dot!
49.1
1b
TK Curran to Broad, 1 bye
Tom makes a mess of the attempted yorker, low full toss. Broad has a big whoosh at it and misses. The keeper is nutmegged as well

Tom has 14 to defend off the last over. A place in the final at stake. Fasten your seat belts.

Dernbach to Read, OUT
bowled'em. Buh-bye Read. Canny change of pace, again. Dipping low full toss from the back of the hand, Read jumps across off in search of a paddle sweep. He misses and the stumps get disturbed

w
TK Curran to Mullaney, OUT
loopy full toss, which is pushed tamely back to the bowler. Smith, who had drifted out of the crease, backing up far too much for a speedy single, is run-out. He waves his bat to the crowd and acknowledges the cheers. Tom Curran keeps his cool, runs across towards the stumps at the non-strikers' end and under-arm flicks it hurling it in.. Mullaney pats the departing Smith on the back
