Joe Root10909.0021010
Ryan Sidebottom402025.0080010
3.3 to MA Carberry, gone! Tries to pull this away from a good length but misses and his off stump is pegged back. 23/1
18.2 to SM Ervine, frustration does for Ervine, slogging flat to long-on where Root bags it calmly! Ervine got out to baseball-bat Sidebottom on the full over mid-on, didn't come out of the screws though and Yorkshire choke out another. 131/5
Tim Bresnan301806.0092000
Rich Pyrah403719.2562200
10.4 to JHK Adams, goes this time, slogging short of the rope at long-off! Pyrah persisted on a fullish length, Adams got underneath the ball but seemed to check his drive, it didn't have enough on it and the Gary Ballance, with his solid base, settled comfortably underneath it. 70/2
Moin Ashraf4043110.7525000
15.4 to JM Vince, pitched up and bowled him! Ashraf has been striving for the yorker but this is another half-volley and Vince swings his bat in frustration as he misses out and the gold (yes, gold) stumps take a rattle. 113/4
Azeem Rafiq402215.5080010
11.4 to ND McKenzie, tossed up and hit in front ... given! As in the semi-final, McKenzie isn't pleased with the decision, mouthing "bat" as he walks off. It was full, on middle, seemed to hit him on the front pad as he tried to sweep but there might have sliver of wood involved. McKenzie certainly feels he was sawn off again. 76/3

Liam Dawson402115.25112010
6.3 to PA Jaques, gone! Yorkshire wobbling. Like in the semi-final. This ball seemed to skid on and it took an inside edge as Jaques stayed back. Another ball crashes into the stumps. 38/3
Dimitri Mascarenhas402025.00122000
3.1 to AW Gale, it's another drag-on. A length ball that Gale tried to heave through the leg side and he got a bottom edge onto his back foot that then rebounded into the stumps. 24/1
5.3 to JE Root, he has another! Root swipes across the line and is nowhere near the ball as middle stump takes a battering. Not the best of days with the bat for Root. 34/2
Chris Wood402636.50112100
19.1 to TT Bresnan, full and Bresnan slogs high in the air, it loops towards point and the catch is taken ... but the batsmen have crossed, Miller has the strike. 137/6
19.5 to RM Pyrah, length ball, Pyrah backs away and plays on! He had to go for the sixer, freed the arms but bottom-edges on to the stumps - this should be all over. 140/7
19.6 to Azeem Rafiq, length ball, at the stumps, taking no chances and Rafiq scoops to mid-off! That will certainly do it - Hampshire win by 10 runs!. 140/8
Danny Briggs402716.7591100
8.6 to JM Bairstow, gone! Massive moment. Lovely bowling. Round the wicket, given a touch more flight, grips off the surface and turns enough to find the outside edge as Bairstow pushes away from his body. Neat catch by Bates, too.. 47/4
Sean Ervine4042110.50104300
14.3 to GS Ballance, steps away, slices a slog and Briggs dives forward at third man to hang on! Ballance just couldn't get his timing right on this pitch, in the end got desperate and swished at a length ball, screwing it off the outside edge to the fielder coming in off the boundary. 87/5
