'Technically outplayed'

Notts win the One-Day Cup

Adam Hollioake

Former Surrey captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Surrey got technically outplayed. When Chris Read bought Samit Patel on, it changed the pace and the momentum of the game.

Alex Hales is man of the match but if there was a runner-up then it's Read for his tactics and the way he marshaled his troops.

'An extraordinary day for Nottinghamshire'

James Taylor

What an extraordinary day for all involved at Notttinghamshire County Cricket Club.

Alex Hales played just a beautiful knock when his side really needed it under pressure.

His technique was flawless throughout - great balance, poised at the crease. It was one of the all-time great innings.

It was an excellent knock from Chris Read, the Nottinghamshire captain. Yes, he didn't want to get out, yes, he wanted see it to the end and walk his team off the field - but he got out on his terms.

He marshaled his troops brilliantly.

'It should be cherished'

Notts win the One-Day Cup

It's the icing on the cake of a long career. It's been a great start to my last season. I've always said, any day you win a trophy is a great day, one that should be remembered for a long time and should be cherished.

'We witnessed something special'

Notts win the One-Day Cup

What we've witnessed today from Alex Hales was something very, very special. It was an absolute pleasure to be up the opposite end from him. Surrey have been outdone by a fantastic knock from a fantastic player today.

And here's that moment they got across the winning line.

Right then, let's lend an ear to Nottinghamshire skipper Chris Read...

Notts lift the One-Day Cup

Having plodded up to the podium and collected his medal, Chris Read, surrounded by the team-mates who he'll be leaving at the end of the year, holds aloft the One-Day Cup to a hearty cheer at Lord's.

A fantastic moment for both he and Nottinghamshire.

'It's been a team job'

Notts win the One-Day Cup

It's a brilliant win. What an innings from Alex Hales - and fantastic for Chris Read to be there in the partnership to win the game. It's brilliant for the club, it's been a team job all the way through the competition.

'I'm really chuffed for Chris Read'

Notts win the One-Day Cup

It's a pretty bitter pill to swallow, but Nottinghamshire were magnificent today. I'm really chuffed for Chris Read, 20 years in the game and to finish like that is magnificent for him. Alex Hales was the man who took it away from us - no complaints.

Man of the match - Alex Hales

Alex Hales' record-breaking day

Notts win the One-Day Cup

Here's how Alex Hales' afternoon panned out...

  • His 187 passed the previous highest individual total in a county final at Lord's, beating Geoffrey Boycott's 146 for Yorkshire, which was also against Surrey.
  • Hales also bettered the previous best-ever List A score at Lord's - David Boon's 166 for Australia against the MCC in 1989.
  • He also improved on his personal best List A score, the 171 he clobbered for England against Pakistan at Trent Bridge last summer.
  • His score accounted for nearly 63% of Nottinghamshire's runs. Of the 595 runs to be scored, he and Mark Stoneman (144 not out) got 331 - more than half!

'It's a special feeling'

Notts win the One-Day Cup

It's an incredible, special feeling. The way we fought back with the ball after a good start kept them to a below-par score - and then to go out and do that with the bat was special. It's right up there for me personally, particularly in such an important game for the club.

Alex HalesNottinghamshire batsman on Sky Sports

Notts win the One-Day Cup

Alex Hales, for the record, ends unbeaten on 187. His 167-ball innings included 20 fours and four sixes and will surely go down as one of the great domestic List A innings of all time.

Given the context, given the occasion, given the wickets falling around him, it really was that good.

And we'll be hearing from him next...

BreakingNotts win the One-Day Cup by four wickets

After James Pattinson is, at first, foiled by mid-wicket, he pulls the follow-up ball around the corner for the single Notts need, sparking jubilant celebrations on the balcony and a huge roar, jump and fist pump from Alex Hales.

Well played, Nottinghamshire. You are the 2017 One-Day Cup winners.

The scores are level

Notts need one run to win

After Alex Hales scampers a single, James Pattinson top edges for four. One more precious run for Nottinghamshire needed.

Notts 292-6 - target 298

Hales 186, Pattinson 4

A couple of dots to end the over presents Alex Hales with an opportunity to hit the winning runs. Six needed off 18. Sam Curran to continue with ball in hand.

Notts 292-6 - target 298

James Pattinson, after being beaten all ends up by Jade Dernbach, runs hard for another two and takes Notts a single blow from One-Day Cup glory. Six needed.

Notts 289-6 - target 298

James Pattinson plays a nice-looking stroke through the covers first up for a couple of runs.

The chase is now down into double figures for Notts - nine needed from 24 balls.

WICKET Read (c Stoneman b S Curran) 58

Notts 287-6 - target 298

I've no doubt Chris Read would like to have been there at the end, but it's not to be. He pulls Sam Curran straight down the throat of Mark Stoneman, he moves in from the rope to take the catch.

His dismissal does, at least, afford him a wonderful Lord's standing ovation as he leaves the field.

That's three wickets for Curran, too.

Notts 282-5 - target 298

Alex Hales has just played a couple of weary-looking shots in that last Jade Dernbach over, which goes for five.

The double century surely is no longer on. But will he care? I wouldn't have thought so, providing he has his hands on that trophy in half an hour or so.

for Chris Read

Hales 184, Read 50

Fantastic. Chris Read, retiring at the end of this season, reaches 50 in what will surely be a Notts winning cause. Fairytale stuff.

He reaches the milestone in slightly weird fashion, ducking a bouncer but seeing the ball cannon off his vertical bat.

These two are seeing it home.

Notts 272-5 - target 298

You wonder now, too, whether Alex Hales may just begin to free his arms once more to make sure Chris Read doesn't scupper his double century hopes.

A couple of sharp twos helps his cause, and a single from the final ball keeps him the strike.

Notts need 26 from 42. Coasting.

Notts 262-5 - target 298

Ravi Rampaul's race is run, his 10 overs going for 2-52. Just the three from that last set.

Just 33 more runs from 48 balls needed for Nottinghamshire.

'He's hardly even sweating'

Adam Hollioake

Former Surrey captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Alex Hales is showing no signs of fatigue, no heavy breathing or panting. He's hardly even sweating.

Surrey are looking a little bit despondent, they've got to maybe try to get the ball reverse-swinging and keep the ball dry.

Notts 262-5 - target 298

Gareth Batty has kept things ridiculously tight today, going for just 34 runs from his eight overs so far.

The issue for him is that Alex Hales has been sublime against the quicks. Is a double century still just about in sight?

MB: I know one knock doesn't get you a test place but certainly another look from the ECB at Alex Hales to open the batting.

Taha Hashim: Hales on for the double ton here. Sublime batting.

Glenn Inniss: Hales batting Surrey into submission. As a good a one-day innings as we're ever likely to see.

Daniel Stevanato: Hales has nearly 72% of Notts' runs today. What's the record for individual percentage of runs in a completed List A innings?

IRD: Alex Hales' back must be absoluty killing him.

Notts 257-5 - target 298

Hales 170, Read 44

A streaky inside edge for four moves Alex Hales onto 171, which is the new highest-ever List A score at Lord's, beating David Boon's 166 for Australia against the MCC in 1989. The records are tumbling!

Hales has also equalled his personal-best List A score. And, all the while, this partnership is now worth 107 too.

Notts, from here, are surely well on their way.

Notts 247-5 - target 298

A handy over from Surrey captain Gareth Batty, limiting the damage to just two runs.

Notts need 51 from 66 balls. Surrey need five wickets.

'No plan B from Surrey'

Adam Hollioake

Former Surrey captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Surrey have come at Notts all day with the same thing - 80mph good-length balls - and Alex Hales has been quite happy to hit those away at will and they haven't really had a plan B.

Notts 245-5 - target 298

Alex Hales is closing in on another Lord's record now - we'll cover that one if and when it happens - but it looks like Chris Read might spoil his double century party.

The Notts wicketkeeper/batsman has 38 from 39 balls, including another four from that latest Ravi Rampaul over.

Chris Read

Notts 237-5 - target 298

Hales 163, Read 32

Now Chris Read's getting in on the act too, pulling Tom Curran for four. Surrey are becoming frustrated here, but still a wicket could open this final right up. Make no mistake about that.

See the moment that Alex Hales broke the record for the highest-ever individual score in a county final at Lord's...

Duncan Mitchell: Ollie Pope could well have handed Notts the trophy today. Dropped Hales on 9....

Josh Verrills: Can always rely on Surrey to bottle it in the final every year after playing so well to get there

Nigel Goodwin: So can I ask why hales is not considered for a test place?

I did pose the question earlier, Nigel! But also, in part, answered it.

It's one thing flashing the blade in this format - and, don't get me wrong, he's been fabulous today - but he'll need to prove he's ironed out his weakness outside off stump with the red ball.

Notts 228-5 - target 298

Jade Dernbach's into the attack, but a clip behind square for four from his second delivery moves Alex Hales onto 163.

It's 70 to win from 83 balls for Notts. Surrey badly need a wicket, obviously.

Jade Dernbach

Notts 220-5 - target 298

Tom Curran's back and he's again proving a little expensive, this over going for seven - including an 18th four for Alex Hales. He's only 15 short of his best-ever List A score now.

His partnership with Chris Read, which I was talking about a moment ago, is unbroken on 70.

Notts 214-5 - target 298

Alex Hales
Rex Features

Alex Hales just goes on, and on, and on. But more importantly than that, he now has a partner willing to stick around with him for a bit.

Chris Read's unbeaten 24 has been really important in just ensuring Notts are well in contention because, when he came to the crease, they were arguably looking up against it.
