Thank you and good night

So that's a wrap. We've been treated to a whopping 1,436 runs across nearly 200 overs in today's two excellent games. I think that's plenty.

Join us again this weekend for coverage of the semi-finals, where - fingers crossed - we'll have games of similar quality and competitiveness.

Until then, thanks for joining us. Goodbye and goodnight.

Team display from Surrey

Surrey beat Yorkshire by 24 runs

It really was a team display from Surrey. Kumar Sangakkara's 121 and Ben Foakes' 86 helped them reach a competitive total of 313-7.

But arguably it was in the field where they were their most impressive. The energy, ground fielding and varied bowling made scoring difficult for Yorkshire.

Adam Lyth (75) and Jack Leaning (42) looked to have them on track, but Surrey wrestled back momentum, dismissing Peter Handscomb for 60.

Despite Matthew Waite's 34 they fell short with Ravi Rampaul picking up 3-54.


Tom Curran finishes it off and Surrey are through to the semi-finals to face Worcestershire at New Road on Saturday. They've deservedly beaten Yorkshire at Headingley.

A wonderful all-round display, full of varied bowling and excellent fielding.

WICKET: Waite (b T Curran) 34

Yorkshire 287-9

A good hand from Matthew Waite comes to an end as he plays one inventive shot too many.

Tom Curran cleans him up as he makes room and tries to cut the ball off his stumps. Not that it matters. Surrey are going to the semi-finals this weekend to play Worcestershire.

Yorkshire need 29 runs from 6 balls

Tom Curran will bowl the final over.

'Everything's come together for Surrey'

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

All round Surrey's bowling and fielding has come together. And Sangakkara we know what he's done, what the master has made.

WICKET Fisher (run out Rampaul) 3

Yorkshire 284-8

Surrey have been dynamite in the field. So much so that even Ravi Rampaul is running people out.

He misfields from Matthew Waite's shot at mid-off but he recovers and a direct hit sees Matthew Fisher heading back to the pavilion.

WICKET: Rafiq (run out Dernbach) 9

Yorkshire 279-7

Jade Dernbach is a big football fan and he shows it from some nimble feet there. Matthew Waite jams down on a slower ball yorker and goes for a run.

Azeem Rafiq is left hung out to dry as Dernbach finds the stumps with his trusty right foot.

Yorkshire need 36 from 12 balls

Waite 31, Rafiq 8

Tom Curran then nails a yorker, Azeem Rafiq misses an attempted reverse paddle and mistimes one down to mid-on.

Waite dropped by Dernbach

Yorkshire 276-6

Matthew Waite smashes the first ball of Tom Curran's over for four over extra-cover, but is nearly out off the second.

Jade Dernbach runs in from fine leg, but shells it.

Yorkshire need 44 from 18 balls

Waite 24, Rafiq 7

Matthew Waite glides Jade Dernbach's first ball off the stumps for four down to third man.

Denbach's then goes: yorker, yorker, slower ball, slower ball, full toss.

The result is nine runs from the over.

Yorkshire need 53 from 24 balls

Waite 17, Rafiq 4

Lovely stuff Matthew Waite. Two runs across the crease, two flicks down to fine-leg, two boundaries from Sam Curran's bowling.

Curran responds with one that skims the leg-stump and one that hits the pad. He finishes with 0-62 from his 10 overs.

Yorkshire 250-6 (Target 314)

Waite 8, Rafiq 3

Jade Dernbach is in his element now, bowling at the death with plenty of runs in the bag to play with. He nails a full house of tricks, bringing out the back-of-the-hand slower ball, back of a length quick one and a classic yorker.

Azeem Rafiq gets the final ball away for two, but it's not enough. 64 runs required from 30 balls now.

WICKET: Handscomb (c Burns b Dernbach) 60

Yorkshire 245-6

What. A. Catch. Take a bow Rory Burns. That is surely the game for Surrey.

Peter Handscomb clobbers Jade Dernbach's first ball out to cow corner, but Burns sprints around and dives to take it just in front of the rope. Awesome stuff and yet another example of modern one-day fielding.

Yorkshire 245-5 (Target 314)

Handscomb 60, Waite 6

Some wonderful, athletic fielding from Surrey. It's making such a difference. Two powerful strokes out into the deep are mopped up and Sam Curran's over goes for just seven runs.

69 runs from 36 balls is the equation.

Close for Handscomb

Yorkshire 238-5

Peter Handscomb has an almighty swing at Sam Curran, with an outside edge just evading the gloves of Ben Foakes.

Yorkshire 238-5

Handscomb 59, Waite 1

Advantage Surrey? It's almost all on the shoulders of Peter Handscomb now.

WICKET: Bresnan (c Foakes b Rampaul) 8

Yorkshire 236-5

Reverse swing from Ravi Rampaul does for Tim Bresnan, whose big old swipe across the line sees an inside edge go through to Ben Foakes.

The umpires confer and Bresnan walks off. Here comes Matthew Waite.

Fifty for Handscomb

Yorkshire 231-4

Peter Handscomb goes to fifty in style. He smashes Ravi Rampaul's first ball over mid-wicket for what he presumes is a simple six. Scott Borthwick gets a hand to it, but it's over the boundary.

The Australian needs to push on from here.

'You can turn to anyone'

Yorkshire 225-4

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

I really like this Surrey bowing attack. They've got lots of variations, lots of options - as a captain it's really nice you know you can turn to anyone at any stage.

Yorkshire 225-4 (Target 314)

Handscomb 46, Bresnan 8

Sam Curran is coming around the wicket to Peter Handscomb. With mid-off up it's not an easy plan to execute and Handscomb chips two over point and hits a full-toss over mid-off, which necessitates a field change.

Curran goes back over the wicket and Tim Bresnan is nearly run out by Gareth Batty at mid-off. It's risk-taking time for Yorkshire with 11 runs needed off every over now.

Benjamin: when you have an A-Level tomorrow but Surrey are playing. What to do hmm?

Stay right with us Benjamin.You never know, a question on One-Day Cup quarter-finals may come up.

Yorkshire 215-4 (Target 314)

Handscomb 38, Bresnan 6

Ravi Rampaul beats Peter Handscomb, who goes for a horrid swish across the line and is lucky not to lose his stumps.

The Australian makes the most of good fortune, running a quick two before playing a late cut - what the youngsters might call a dab - for four to third man.

A lot rests on him now you feel with Matthew Waite, Azeem Rafiq and Matthew Fisher next in.

Yorkshire 204-4 (Target 314)

Handscomb 29, Bresnan 5

Wonderful fielding from Ollie Pope on the deep backward square boundary once again. The youngster prevents a Tim Bresnan four from Tom Curran's bowling.

Surrey are strangling the life out of Yorkshire with some varied bowling and tight fielding. Tom Curran's change-ups are working a treat as Bresnan finishes the over with two play and misses.

Worcestershire await the winner

Don't forget a trip to Worcestershire on Saturday (11:00 BST start) awaits the winner of this match at Headingley.

Is there a more picturesque county ground than New Road? You'd do well to find one...

Yorkshire 199-4

Handscomb 27, Bresnan 2

Television's very own prediction system, WASP, flashes up telling us Yorkshire have just a 3% chance of winning this now. I'm not sure I agree, but Surrey are pumped up.

Jade Dernbach keeps a tight line and Peter Handscomb and Tim Bresnan can take just three runs from his over, despite a wide. The required run-rate is now over 10 runs per over.

Yorkshire 196-4 (Target 314)

Handscomb 27, Bresnan 1

Tim Bresnan is away with a single shortly after a big shout for lbw from Tom Curran. It was clearly going down the leg-side though.

'Ballance trying to be too inventive'

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

He was just trying to do too much there. Trying to be too inventive. Now I think the game is going to ebb and flow, we'll see it tussling around for a while.

WICKET: Ballance (c Sangakkara b T Curran) 36

Yorkshire 195-4

Gary Ballance is out. He was beginning to look like a cat on a hot tin roof. Moments after a missed ramp shot missed his stumps, he mis-times a full toss from Tom Curran to Kumar Sangakkara at mid-wicket.

The Sri Lankan (wearing Sam Curran's top for some reason) looked like he might be about to drop it, but he holds on. Big wicket.

'It could go to the wire'

Yorkshire 195-3

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

You feel like it could go right to the wire. Inevitably you'll see a wicket here and there. I think this is set up really nicely and I'm looking forward to the next few overs.

Yorkshire 194-3 (Target 314)

Handscomb 27, Ballance 36

Wonderful piece of fielding by Sam Curran down on the boundary. Gary Ballance gets hold of a short one from Jade Dernbach, but a full-length dive and recovery stop the boundary.

Ballance squeezes a two to the same fielder and finishes the over with a drop-and-run single. Seven runs off it.

Yorkshire 187-3

Handscomb 26, Ballance 30

Tom Curran is back, despite Ebony Rainford-Brent's suggestion.

Yorkshire are in a stick or twist situation: they have wickets in-hand and are in a good position, but equally need to get going a bit quicker.

Peter Handscomb and Gary Ballance only manage six runs off the over with the required run-rate now nudging over nine.

'Surrey need a bit of magic'

Yorkshire 181-3

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Yorkshire are well set at the moment. Surrey need a bit of magic. You feel there needs to be some wickets for Surrey to wrestle the game back into their control.

If it was me I'd be looking at Jade Dernbach as a change bowler.

Yorkshire 181-3 (Target 314)

Handscomb 22, Ballance 28

Yorkshire beginning to get going here. Peter Handcomb reaches to get a Gareth Batty ball outside off-stump on the full with a well-timed sweep shot.

A couple of short balls are pulled away, but the boundary-riding fielders do their job. The fifty-partnership between Gary Ballance and Peter Handscomb comes up from 8.1 overs.

appeal - not outYorkshire 174-3

Handscomb 15, Ballance 27

A first boundary in over three overs as Gary Ballance hooks Sam Curran to the boundary.

It's followed by a big appeal as Curran hits Ballance in front of the stumps. Is it tailing down the legside? The umpire is unmoved and signals a leg bye.

Yorkshire 166-3 (Target 314)

Handscomb 14, Ballance 22

Surrey skipper Gareth Batty drops one short, but he gets away with it as the deep fielder on the leg-side gets around to cut off Peter Handscomb's shot.

Batty follows it up with a quicker one which beats Gary Ballance's outside edge. The run-rate is up to 8.67 per over now.

Yorkshire 169-3

Handscomb 13, Ballance 20

Sam Curran, the left-armed younger Curran brother, is back on to bowl as Surrey search for another wicket.

He bowls very straight to both Peter Handscomb and Gary Ballance and goes for just two runs from the over. Yorkshire can't let the run-rate get out of control here.
