It's a night to forget for Gloucestershire then, who will have to wait for at least another year for their first ever, elusive T20 Blast title.

But Durham are overjoyed as they travel back up north having won an away knock-out tie for the first time since 2008.

Glamorgan host Yorkshire in the fourth quarter-final tomorrow night - do be sure to return for that one.

But until then, thanks for joining me for this one. Good night.

DURHAM WIN BY 19 RUNS

Gloucestershire 161 (19.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

What a mess for Gloucestershire that was, despite Jack Taylor's spirited 80 from 41 balls, which made that chase fun to watch for a while.

Durham join Nottinghamshire and Northants at the T20 Blast Finals Day. They are delighted!

Could the North teams dominate the competition's finale?

Durham, who were fourth in the North Group, have knocked out the South Group winners.

BreakingDURHAM BEAT GLOUCESTERSHIRE BY 19 RUNS

Gloucestershire 161 (19.0 overs) v Durham 180-5 (20 overs)

Jack Taylor is run out for 80. The brothers ended up at the same end! It's a fourth run out.

Durham have won!

WICKET Tye (run out 4)

Gloucestershire 156-9 (18.2 overs) v Durham 180-5

Another run out sees Gloucestershire staring at defeat.

Matt Taylor comes out to join brother Jack in the middle...they'll have to be the heroes or the hosts are heading out. Durham need just one more wicket.

Gloucestershire 154-8 (18.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

The hosts didn't meet the required run rate in that over, despite a four from Jack Taylor, who is now on 76 from just 38 balls.

27 more runs are needed from the final two overs.

Gloucestershire 145-8 (17.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

The hosts need 36 runs from 18 balls, but simply can't lose more than one wicket.

That's the situation, folks. Are we about to see some real drama? Or have Durham got this in the bag?

WICKET Grieshaber (c & b Rushworth 9)

Gloucestershire 136-8 (16.2 overs) v Durham 180-5

Durham halt Gloucestershire's recovery as Patrick Grieshaber hits it high, high, high.....and is caught by bowler Chris Rushworth.

The 45-run eighth-wicket partnership is over.

Durham are two wickets away from reaching Finals Day.

Gloucestershire 136-7 (16.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

Scott Borthwick sees out that over with far less drama than we saw in the first four balls of it.... but Durham still managed to concede 20 runs in that over.

Could that change this game?

50 for Taylor - Collingwood banned!

Gloucestershire (16.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

Are Durham throwing this away? Jack Taylor hits a big six to move to 55 from 27 balls.

Paul Collingwood concedes another no ball - now the umpire bans him!

18 runs conceded in four balls...that could prove to be expensive! The hosts have a lifeline.

Ooops

Gloucestershire 122-7 (15.3 overs) v Durham 180-5

Paul Collingwood comes in to bowl....but he's given away six runs with a disastrous no ball. A gift for Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire 112-7 (15.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

No boundaries in the 15th over. Jack Taylor has moved up to 42 and Patrick Grieshaber is on 7.

The required run rate is more than 13.5 an over. Surely, with just three wickets remaining, Gloucestershire can't win this from here?

Gloucestershire 100-7 (14.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

Jack Taylor is up to 38 from just 21 balls and is doing his best to salvage a desperate situation for Gloucestershire, who still need another 81 runs from 36 balls.

WICKET Smith (run out 1)

Gloucestershire 91-7 (12.4 overs) v Durham 180-5

Wow - a direct hit from backward point from Gordon Muchall...that is a cracking bit of fielding!

Durham are jumping for joy. Gloucestershire are sinking without a trace. Tom Smith scored just one run.

Gloucestershire 90-6 (12.3 overs) v Durham 180-5

Jack Taylor has swiftly moved himself up to 31 from 16 balls. This is getting better for Gloucestershire at last. But is it too little too late?

Gloucestershire 81-6 (12.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

Hello, hello! Finally Durham concede an expensive over. Jack Taylor comes up with two sixes.

The hosts need more of the same for the next eight overs.... another 100 runs are required.

WICKET Howell (c Stoneman b Jennings 12)

Gloucestershire 61-6 (10.5 overs) v Durham 180-5

It's an easy catch. 61-6 says it all really. Durham are making this look so, so easy.

Gloucestershire need to dig deep now to avoid a major embarrassment.

Gloucestershire 54-5 (10.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

As things stand, Durham are on course for a thumping victory.

The atmosphere is very, very flat at Bristol, despite the capacity crowd. The hosts are stunned.

All going Durham's way...

Gloucestershire 50-5 (9.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

Another over, another wicket.

Kieran Noema-Barnett is run out. It's a direct hit from a fabulous throw by Mark Stoneman.

WICKET Van Buuren (c Muchall b Borthwick 14)

Gloucestershire 43-4 (7.3 overs) v Durham 180-5

Another one goes! Graeme van Buuren is caught in the deep at long on.

Durham are definitely on one tonight! Are they heading for a semi-final? It certainly looks that way.

Gloucestershire 41-3 (7.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

The hosts add six singles in the seventh over. Graeme van Buuren is up to 18, alongside Benny Howell on 4.

Nearly 11 an over is required from here onwards for victory.

Gloucestershire 35-4 (6.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

It's a huge ask for Gloucestershire to win from here.

They need another 147 runs, from 14 overs, but have already lost Michael Klinger, Hamish Marshall and Ian Cockbain.

Can someone else step up for the hosts and produce a thrilling comeback?

WICKET Klinger (c Richardson b Rushworth 18)

Gloucestershire 33-3 (4.5 overs) v Durham 180-5

It's a massive moment in this match! Michael Klinger is gone. Gloucestershire's real danger man....he's out for just 18!

He smacked four, four, six....but is out next ball, caught by Michael Richardson.

Could that prove to be the decisive wicket of this quarter-final?

Gloucestershire 19-2 (4.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

Graeme van Buuren finds a couple of tidy fours but this run rate still isn't great, is it? Eight from the over.

Four dot balls from Mark Wood in the over, who has figures of 2-9 from his two overs so far.

Gloucestershire 11-2 (3.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

The hosts add five runs from their third over as Michael Klinger finds the first boundary.

They've got a lot of work to do though. Durham are in the driving seat.

WICKET Cockbain (c Jennings b Wood 0)

Gloucestershire 6-2 (1.6 overs) v Durham 180-5

Mark Wood has a second wicket in his first over and it's a big one! Big-hitting Ian Cockbain is out for a duck.

Keaton Jennings is there with the catch again, absolutely loving life so far at mid-wicket.

It's all going wrong for Gloucestershire so far in this reply...

WICKET Marshall (c Jennings b Wood 4)

Gloucestershire 6-1 (1.4 overs) v Durham 180-5

View more on twitter

Oh no! That's not the start Gloucestershire had in mind. Durham are delighted! Hamish Marshall is gone for four.

Gloucestershire 5-0 (1.0 overs) v Durham 180-5

Hamish Marshall takes the hosts up to 5-0 in the first over, bowled by Chris Rushworth.

A run rate of 9.26 is required from here onwards. Don't go anywhere, folks. This should be fascinating.

Gloucestershire's innings up next...

Durham 180-5 (20.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

So, opener Mark Stoneman top-scored with 61 for Durham. His 96-run partnership with Keaton Jennings set up that innings nicely.

But is 180-5 going to be enough to see them through to the semi-finals?

Well, over to you, Gloucestershire...

End of Durham's innings

Durham (20.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

There's no hat-trick for Matt Taylor, but it was a pretty useful final over, as he took two wickets and conceded only sevens runs. Paul Collingwood came in and added six of those seven, from the final two deliveries.

It's Durham third-highest T20 score of the season. They've posted 180-5.

Two wickets in two balls

Durham 173-5 (19.2 overs) v Gloucestershire

Michael Richardson goes for 37, caught by Michael Klinger off the bowling of Matt Taylor.

Then Hamish Marshall gets his third catch of this innings, as Ryan Pringle goes for a golden duck!

Taylor is on a hat-trick...

Durham 173-3 (19.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

One over remains of Durham's innings. Michael Richardson is on 37, from 20 balls. The visitors will be pleased with how the night is going, for sure.

Durham 157-3 (18.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

Matt Taylor bowls his third over of this innings and concedes seven runs.

Durham's 20 overs are coming to an end soon.....how big a target can they set for the hosts to chase?

Durham 150-3 (17.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

Another over, another six. Michael Richardson has 27 from 12 balls faced and is batting very confidently.

Durham 138-3 (16.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

Michael Richardson hits too sixes in an over, swinging hard and true, to really help the run rate tick along.

Gloucestershire's Tom Smith hasn't enjoyed that whatsoever. Richardson got right under those two. 16 runs are added in the over.

Durham 122-3 (15.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

Benny Howell bowls a relatively economic over and Durham's run rate has really slowed since losing Mark Stoneman and Keaton Jennings, having looked so good at the halfway point.

WICKET Burnham (c Marshall b Smith 10)

Durham 117-3 (13.6 overs) v Gloucestershire

Jack Burnham is gone - Hamish Marshall takes another catch and, just like the wicket of Mark Stoneman, it came immediately after a big six.

Gloucestershire are recovering and really coming into this now. The score looks a lot better for them now than it did 10 minutes ago.

WICKET Jennings (b Tye 36)

Durham 107-2 (12.3 overs) v Gloucestershire

That's a beauty! Andrew Tye clean bowls Keaton Jennings, who had hit 36 from 30 balls.

That was a useful knock for Durham but it ends abruptly with a fine delivery from Tye.

Gordon Muchall is now coming in at number four, to join Jack Burnham in the middle for Durham.

Durham 105-1 (12.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

Durham are still ticking along nicely. Will they be unsettled by losing Mark Stoneman?

Their cause has been aided by five wides...

WICKET Stoneman (c Marshall b Howell 61)

Dureham 96-1 (10.5 overs) v Gloucestershire

We have a breakthrough! The 11th over isn't when Gloucestershire will have wanted to find the night's first wicket..... but they're relieved to finally get one.

Benny Howell has his 24th wicket in the T20 Blast this season as Mark Stoneman - immediately after smacking a massive six - is easily caught at long-on by Hamish Marshall. A simply catch to end a solid innings from Stoneman.

Durham (10.0 overs) v Gloucestershire

The first half of Durham's innings has seen them avoid losing any wickets and they've put a fine 81 runs on the board.

Gloucestershire look a bit frustrated. The atmosphere in the home stands is very flat.
