Saturday, 1 July at the Home of Cricket will see Surrey face Nottinghamshire in what should be a cracking One-Day Cup final.

There's not long to wait until that game, but there's even less time to wait until your next cricket fix here on BBC Sport.

The small matter of India v Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final takes place from 10:15 BST on Sunday and then the County Championship returns on Monday for its next round.

That's all to come, but for today, thanks for being with us.

Surrey (363-7) beat Worcestershire (210) by 153 runs

Stumps drawn then at a sun-drenched New Road. Worcestershire's 13-year wait to reach a Lord's final goes on.

But, they've got a lot to be optimistic about for the rest of this season with a decent all-round side in contention for promotion from Division Two of the County Championship.

Surrey skipper Gareth Batty is named man of the match for his 5-40 with the ball. His side are very much in contention in all formats this season and they'll fancy their chances at Lord's after finishing runners-up the past two seasons.

'Final should be an absolute cracker'

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

It's nice to see that the final of Nottinghamshire v Surrey is just around the corner and it should be an absolute cracker.

Two very destructive sides with very destructive batting line-ups and lots of internationals on show.

'Surrey have got almost the complete side'

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

Surrey have got almost the complete side, my worry is that if Kumar Sangakkara doesn't score runs they might be in some trouble but they have a well balanced side especially with the ball.

Surrey (363-7) beat Worcestershire (210) by 153 runs

So, not quite the last-over dramatic run-chase of last night at Chelmsford, but still plenty of top cricket on display at New Road.

Both of the sides who finished third in their respective groups will contest the final. The two group winners of Essex and Worcestershire miss out.


Surrey 363-7 (50 overs) v Worcestershire 210 (33.2 overs)

There it is. Surrey are heading to Lord's for a third year in a row.

Sam Curran takes the final wicket of Ross Whiteley for 55 as he is caught in the deep by Rory Burns.

Gareth Batty's Surrey side win by 153 runs and will face Nottinghamshire in the final on Saturday, 1 July.

A comprehensive win.

Worcs 210-9

Whiteley 55, Tongue 11

My man Ravi Rampaul is back on to bowl, from the New Road End this time.

All very sedate stuff now as a few more in the crowd head towards the exits and maybe a barbecue for the evening nearby.

I'll stop as I'm making myself hungry just thinking about that...

Worcs 206-9 (target 364)

Whiteley 53, Tongue 9

Josh Tongue gets into the run-scoring action with a nicely timed shot through the offside for four off Jade Dernbach.

Worcestershire still fighting here with their last partnership.

'A really tough call'

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Who's the better cricketer out of brothers Sam and Tom Curran?

That's a really tough call. A lot of people say Sam is a better cricketer because I think his batting offers a lot as well as the fact that he swings the ball but there's also grit I see around Tom, a competitiveness.

I think it's going to be more down to themselves over the next two or three years.

It helps having that close relative and a healthy banter.

Worcs 200-9

Whiteley 52, Tongue 4

It's 200 up for Worcestershire with some hearty applause to greet it from the home crowd.

I think they'd quite like to watch a few more overs of this in the evening sunshine and who could blame them?

50 for Ross Whiteley

Worcs 197-9 (Whiteley 50, Tongue 3)

Half-century for Ross Whiteley with a single off Jade Dernbach.

It's come off just 33 balls with three fours and four huge sixes.

Six again from Whiteley!

Worcs 196-9 (Whiteley 49, Tongue 3)

Another maximum from Ross Whiteley that's almost spectacularly caught by Jason Roy on the rope.

Even he wasn't going to haul that one back in and he does well in fact not to land on top of the covers that have been parked just off the playing area today.

WICKET Barnard (c Batty b Dernbach) 9

Worcs 187-9

Wicket time again for Surrey and this time Gareth Batty takes a catch.

Jade Dernbach dismisses Ed Barnard as he picks out the Surrey captain at mid-off.

Dernbach lets out a big roar in celebration with that one.

Surrey almost there....

Six more from Whiteley!

Worcs 187-8 (Whiteley 43, Barnard 9)

Ooh, that's nice! Two sixes in two balls now for Ross Whiteley.

This one is straight down long leg and potentially through someone's windscreen.

Nice hitting though from Whiteley.

Six from Ross Whiteley

Worcs 180-8 (Whiteley 37, Barnard 9)

Tom Curran, who is in England's T20 squad next week to face South Africa, is back on to bowl at the New Road End.

Ross Whiteley and Ed Barnard work him around for some singles before Whiteley lustily hits him for six over long-off.

Worcs 179-8 (target 364)

Whiteley 29, Barnard 6

Jade Dernbach is back on looking to apply brakes of a different kind to this Worcestershire run this season in the One-Day Cup.

Ross Whiteley still fancies a few runs here though and crashes one straight out to the deep cover boundary, but just for a single.

Brake failure brings a chuckle

Ged Scott

BBC Sport at New Road

Their side may be heading rapidly towards defeat at New Road, but the Worcestershire supporters can at least still raise a chuckle.

An announcement over the public address system from master of ceremonies Dave Bradley asking that the respective owners of a black Range Rover, whose hand brake had not been correctly applied, and the Fiat Panda, which halted its progress, has just caused great hilarity, not to mention the biggest round of applause of the day.

Worcs 166-8 (target 364)

Whiteley 28, Barnard 5

Ed Barnard in at 10 for Worcestershire and he's off and running with a neat sweep for four off Gareth Batty.

Batty has 5-40 off his nine overs.

WICKET Leach (c Pope b Batty) 7

Worcs 160-8

It's five wickets for Gareth Batty and Surrey move ever closer to victory!

Joe Leach the latest man to fall as yet another Worcestershire player tries to clear the fence by coming down the track. Ollie Pope takes the catch this time down at long-on.

Batty now with 5-34.

Worcs 160-7

Whiteley 27, Leach 7

Ravi Rampaul trundles in again, reminiscent of many a club cricket seamer no doubt this afternoon around the country.

He looks the sort who'd do a job for you as a captain - bowl all day up the hill and not complain, just be happy to have the ball in his hand.

Sends down a couple of nice inswinging yorkers, but Ross Whiteley wins the battle at the end of the over by hitting a nice drive for four through mid-off.

Batty bowling Surrey to routine win

Gareth Batty celebrates another wicket against Worcestershire

Gareth Batty has Surrey on the verge of victory against his former side.

More than 200 runs are needed for Worcestershire with only three wickets left.

That's a big, big ask - to put it mildly.

Worcs 153-7

Whiteley 22, Leach 6

Four runs off Gareth Batty's eighth over. He's got figures of 4-34 this afternoon.

A solid effort that will go a long way to securing another Lord's appearance for his county.

Worcs 149-7 (target 364)

Whiteley 21, Leach 3

Four more for Ross Whiteley to finish that Ravi Rampaul over with a pull shot out to deep square leg just beyond a diving attempt from Rory Burns.

A late rally perhaps?

Six from Ross Whiteley

Worcs 145-7

Ross Whiteley showing that he's got some power hitting in his locker.

Pulls one ferociously into the legside off Ravi Rampaul that clips Kumar Sangakkara's hands.

Next ball he gets a maximum over deep mid-wicket which is nicely held the other side of the rope by one of the New Road groundstaff.

Worcs 134-7 (target 364)

Whiteley 7, Leach 2

Joe Leach now out there in the middle and the Worcestershire captain has a big job to do.

'The easiest of catches'

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

That's the easiest of catches for Jade Dernbach, there was nothing behind it, never threatening to go for six but you can see what Ben Cox was trying to do.

WICKET Cox (c Dernbach b Batty) 13

Worcs 131-7

A fourth wicket for Gareth Batty.

Ben Cox tries to loft one over long-off, but he gets absolutely no power on it and Jade Dernbach takes a very simple catch in the deep.

Real shame this for Worcestershire who just haven't been able to build any partnerships.

Worcs 131-6 (target 364)

Cox 13, Whiteley 6

Ravi Rampaul continues in the fine early evening sunshine.

Ross Whiteley takes a big swing and a miss before playing slightly measured with a flick into the legside for a couple.

Get Involved


James: I think Gareth Batty is auditioning to be part of Katy Perry's song Roar.....

Ralph Brooker: Is it okay to be scared when Batty takes a wicket?

'It's now about being ruthless'

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Good work from Gareth Batty, it's now about being ruthless.

We've seen games turn around but well done to Brett D'Oliveira, a brilliant half-century, I thought he showed some real positive signs and he bowled well today too.

Worcs 125-6 (target 364)

Cox 11, Whiteley 3

More toiling away from Gareth Batty concedes just three runs.

Surrey looking perfectly set for a third Lord's final in as many seasons.

Worcs 122-6

Cox 9, Whiteley 2

Ravi Rampaul comes on to bowl for Surrey. The experienced West Indian right-armer is carrying a bit of timber I think it's fair to say in the autumn of his career.

But, he can still bang it in quite ferociously as Ross Whiteley has to duck under one. Conceded four from his first delivery as Cox tucked into a bit of a short one outside off.

Worcs 115-6

Cox 4, Whiteley 0

Replays of that Brett D'Oliveira dismissal suggest he was hit outside the line of off stump.

A touch unfortunate perhaps for the right-hander who played a good hand with that half-century.

WICKET D'Oliveira (lbw b Batty) 53

Worcs 115-6

Three overs, three wickets for Gareth Batty and Surrey.

Brett D'Oliveira is the man who falls this time as his attempted slog sweep goes horribly wrong and Rob Bailey is quick to raise the finger as it hits his back leg in line.

A few in the crowd might also be heading for the exits and moving to a nearby beer garden perhaps.

Batty is a very happy man...

Gareth Batty

Worcs 113-5 (target 364)

D'Oliveira 52, Cox 3

Wicket-keeper Ben Cox the latest man in for Worcestershire.

He's off an running with a couple and a single off Tom Curran's over.

The target of 364 is a long way away though for the hosts.

50 for Brett D'Oliveira

Worcs 108-5 (D'Oliveira 50, Cox 0)

Half-century for Brett D'Oliveira amid a fall of wickets for Worcestershire.

His sixth boundary of his innings brings up his landmark off Tom Curran. He's got there in just 40 balls with six fours and an impressive six off Gareth Batty.

WICKET Hastings (c Burns b Batty) 3

Worcs 104-5

More screams of delight from Gareth Batty as he takes a second wicket in as many overs for Surrey.

John Hastings the man to succumb this time as the Australian tried to go over the ropes down to deep mid-wicket.

But, Rory Burns is there to take the catch diving forward and Surrey could really run away with this game now.

Worcs 101-4

D'Oliveira 43, Hastings 3

Another touch of class shown by Brett D'Oliveira as he ramps the ball down to fine leg for four off Tom Curran.

He then escapes being caught down at third man with a mis-cue over wicket-keeper Ben Foakes' head.

Six from the over as the hosts bring up their 100.

Worcs 94-4 (target 364)

D'Oliveira 36, Hastings 3

Big bad John Wayne Hastings is the next man in for Worcestershire.

He nearly finds the boundary down to deep mid-wicket but Rory Burns does some good work in the field again to keep the ball inside the rope.

WICKET Clarke (c Foakes b Batty) 15

Worcs 90-4

Gareth Batty's enjoyed that one against his former employers!

Joe Clarke prods forward to the off-spinner and nicks behind to Ben Foakes, who bags the catch standing up to the stumps.

Further trouble now for Worcestershire just as a partnership looked to be building.
