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..
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!
3 off 1, if tie, Lancashire will advance as they lost fewer wickets.
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..
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..
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..
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
Buttler on strike..
fullish and outside off, works it away through cover for a single
6 off 6
brilliant from Buttler, gets to his fifty, more importantly releases the pressure. Pushes full and outside off, bends down and using the pace reverse sweeps that to the right of diving short third man
fullish and wide outside off carves it away through cover point
11 required off 8 balls..
low full toss outside off, works it out with an open face to the right of third man, gets back for the second as he dives full length to reach the crease..
on a length and outside off, Croft is beaten
fuller length delivery and outside off, pushes it straight to backward of point
holes out to the man at the deep, some twist? A nothing delivery but a wicket and that too of Price, goes for 62. A full toss on the middle as he flicks that straight and flat into the hands of deepish midwicket, Denly hardly moved from his place, comfortable catch
another one, fuller and well outside off, reaches for it and squeezes it out at the gap once again with an angled bat, thirteen from the over..
superb shot and nicely picked the gap, on a length and around the middle, reverse sweeps it between the backward of point and short third man
follows down the leg with a length delivery, clips the pad on its way to the keeper
gets a boundary, this will hurt a lot to Lancashire, a low full toss on the leg, clips it through backward of square leg, the man there could have done a bit better
follows him down the leg with a fullish delivery, Buttler driven it back towards the bowler, does it get something on it as it hits the stumps on the non-striker's end, Prince was backing up, a bit of finger tips onto it? Calls the tv umpire, checks with the two available angles, not enough conclusive evidence to judge that out, and rightly so, he is safe..
slowish and short, outside off, lobs up with an angled bat infront of square leg, no harm done
26 off 18 balls..
fullish and outside off, pushes it infront of long-on
yorker on the leg, digs it out down to long-on for another single
