  1. Post update

    And that brings a day of T20 Blast quarter-finals to a close.

    Surrey, Gloucestershire, Lancashire and Notts Outlaws all go through to Finals Day.

    Kent, Northants, Sussex and Leicestershire miss out.

    Thank you for joining myself and Adam and hope you'll be back for the conclusion (hopefully) of the English domestic season on Saturday.

    Until then, goodbye.

  2. Post update

    We'll have Finals Day covered across the BBC Sport website and app on Saturday with live text commentary, ball-by-ball radio coverage and in-play clips from Edgbaston.

    The forecast in Birmingham is appalling, so it may well go into the reserve day on Sunday.

  3. Finals Day line-up

    So that completes the line-up for Finals Day at Edgbaston on Saturday...


    • Surrey v Gloucestershire
    • Notts Outlaws v Lancashire Lightning

    Notts tied with Leics


    Notts scored 42-1 in the Powerplay, Leicestershire were 22-2 after their first six overs.

    That's what it came down to.

  5. 'Such a fine margin'

    Alex Hartley

    England spinner on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    What an incredible finish.

    Nobody means to misfield, but that's the fine margin that's cost Leicestershire.

    They fought so, so hard to get themselves in that position.

    Such a horrible way to lose a game.


    Notts Outlaws (139-7) tied with Leicestershire Foxes (139-7)

    Notts win

    A misfield hands Notts two runs off the final ball, it's a tied game, but Notts go through! Madness.

    Imad Wasim hits it towards Dieter Klein in the leg side, it's only one if Klein picks it up cleanly, but the ball goes through him, Notts run two and the Foxes miss out.

    Match tied - wickets lost the same, so it goes down to the best score in the Powerplay. I'll just have to look those up...

  7. Notts 137-7

    Three to win off one ball

    A single to Samit Patel. Notts need three off the last ball.

    If it's a tie, Notts will go through courtesy of a better score in the Powerplay. It would have gone to wickets lost first, but both have lost seven.

    No Super Over here...

  8. Notts 136-7

    Four to win from two balls

    SHOT! Six over extra-cover from Samit Patel.

  9. Notts 130-7

    10 to win off 3 balls

    Two down the ground for Samit Patel. 10 from three needed.

  10. Notts 128-7

    12 to win off four balls

    A single and a dot ball to start from Will Davis. Great for Leicestershire.

  11. Notts 127-7

    13 to win off six balls

    Oh no! Arron Lilley lets one through on the boundary and it's a four to Samit Patel.

    It means 13 are needed by Notts off the last over.

    Will Davis to bowl it...

  12. Post update

    Alex Hartley

    England spinner on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    Gavin Griffifths has bowled so well, he deserved that wicket.

    He's got that skid off the pitch and apart from that one loose ball earlier in the over, he's been brilliant so far.

  13. WICKET

    Mullaney c Lilley b Griffiths 7 (Notts 123-7, target 140)

    Steven Mullaney holes out.

    The Notts skipper swats Gavin Griffiths straight into the hands of Arron Lilley deep in the leg side.

    17 needed from seven balls.

  14. Notts 122-6

    18 to win off 10 balls

    Brilliant shot from Samit Patel. The all-rounder swats Gavin Griffiths powerfully through mid-wicket for four.

  15. 'A real key moment'

    Alex Hartley

    England spinner on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    Notts need that early boundary to release a bit of pressure.

    This a real key moment for the Foxes which is why one of their best bowlers on the night so far, Gavin Griffifths is coming back on to bowl the penultimate over.

  16. Notts 117-6

    23 to win off 12 balls

    Finally a boundary for Notts, but it's so, so fortunate.

    Samit Patel swipes at the final ball of Will Davis' over, gets and inside edge and races to the rope.

    23 needed off the last two.

    Gavin Griffiths will take the penultimate over...

  17. 'They can both clear the boundary'

    Alex Hartley

    England spinner on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    You can't imagine this pair being as quick between the wickets as the young guns at the top of the Notts order, but they're both more than capable of clearing the boundary.

  18. Notts 109-6

    Mullaney 5, Patel 4

    Notts need 31 off the last three overs. A tough ask.

    Dieter Klein returns and Steven Mullaney and Samit Patel can only find a few singles.

    Where's your money?

  19. Notts 104-6

    Mullaney 4, Patel 0

    A magnificent over from Colin Ackermann comes to an end, as does his four-over spell. The only blemish, a lovely four through the covers to get Steven Mullaney off the mark.

    Ackermann finishes with 3-27.

    Notts need 36 off the last four overs.

  20. 'Ackermann does it again'

    Alex Hartley

    England spinner on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    There's two new batsman in for Notts who haven't face a delivery yet and such a pressure time for that to happen.

    Colin Ackermann has done this so many times before taking crucial wickets for Leicestershire and he's doing it again on a huge occasion.
