Hampshire beat Derbyshire by 101 runs

Well what a first quarter-final this has been. Outrageous hitting from Shahid Afridi tonight and Hampshire are back at Edgbaston.

Derbyshire's long wait for their first appearance T20 Finals Day continues but they can take plenty from a good campaign.

One down, three to go. Join us tomorrow for Glamorgan v Leicestershire from Cardiff.

'Not a lot we could do'

Hampshire beat Derbyshire by 101 runs

"Whenever someone comes out and plays like Shahid did there's not a lot you can do but we did miss chances of him," Derbyshire captain Gary Wilson tells Sky Sports.

"The decision did catch us on the hop but Wayne was adamant he wanted the ball. We did what has been working for us.

"It's a tough game to lose but I'm proud of the way we played the whole competition."

'Good chance we'll use him again'

Hampshire beat Derbyshire by 101 runs

"It was a management decision to move Shahid up with how Derbyshire have used spin to start with, there's a good chance we'll use him again now!" Hampshire captain James Vince tells Sky Sports.

"We don't have a great record at Edgbaston so we'll be looking to put in another performance.

"We've been a bit up and down in the group but we've got good experience of quarter-finals."

Hampshire beat Derbyshire by 101 runs

That'll be a seventh Finals Day in the last eight years for two-time winners Hampshire.

The showpiece event takes place at Edgbaston on 2 September.

For Derbyshire, the wait to reach their first Finals Day continues.

'Hampshire were outstanding'

Hampshire beat Derbyshire by 101 runs

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Hampshire have looked a class above Derbyshire.

Derbyshire have had a good season overall but Hampshire on paper are a world class side. They've been outstanding.

It was near on the perfect batting display by Hampshire. It was an extraordinary innings by Shahid Afridi, backed up by a perfect bowling and perfect fielding display.


Derbys 148 v Hampshire 249-8

We thought it may be a boring second innings and so it has proved.

Derbyshire had to go hard in the Powerplay. They did, lost early wickets, and any slim chance they had of a record chase went pretty early.

Efficient display from Hampshire in the field. Gave nothing away with the ball and caught well.

Derbys 146-9 (Target 250)

Cotton 29, Tahir 22

I thought we'd be long done by now but this pair have at least extended the entertainment.

Derbys 142-9 (Target 250)

Cotton 27, Tahir 20

Oh my goodness Imran Tahir goes inside out to take six over extra-cover and he goes to a career-best T20 score! Remarkable.

Ben Cotton has also gone to a T20 career-best so Derbyshire's players could at least get a free round of drinks out of this torrid night.

Derbys 133-9 (Target 250)

Cotton 25, Tahir 13

Imran Tahir, goodness, goes down on one knee to slog sweep Liam Dawson over deep square. What a shot.

Derbys 122-9 (Target 250)

Cotton 21, Tahir 6

Big Ben Cotton finds the fence over long-off, that is a lovely strike.

Derbys 107-9 (Target 250)

Cotton 8, Tahir 4

Last rites being said on this game now.

WICKET Hughes (c Wood b Crane) 23


Thrown up by Mason Crane, Alex Hughes tries to smash it down the ground but got far too much elevation and it's an easy catch for long-on.

Derbys 101-8

Hughes 23, Cotton 6

Alex Hughes provides one minuscule moment of riposte against Shahid Afridi with a mighty sweep over midwicket for six.

Derbys 94-8 (Target 250)

Hughes 17, Cotton 5

Can Derbyshire bat out the overs? Does that even matter? Do we have any biscuits left?

WICKET Smit (b Crane) 17

Derbys 89-8

The latest reverse sweep attempted from Daryn Smit, this time it's rather agricultural, he misses and loses his middle stump.

Derbys 86-7 (Target 250)

Hughes 16, Smit 15

Man of the night, Shahid Afridi, onto bowl. He's swept first ball for four and has an lbw appeal turned down.

Derbys 80-7 (Target 250)

Hughes 15, Smit 10

Pleasant reverse sweep from Daryn Smit and then a paddle sweep over his head.

Derbys 72-7 (Target 250)

Hughes 13, Smit 4

Decent blows in the overs, one each for Daryn Smit and Alex Hughes but it's merely delaying the inevitable here.

Derbys 59-7 (Target 250)

Hughes 4, Smit 0

Hampshire fans book your train tickets to Birmingham.

WICKET Henry (c Alsop b Dawson) 1


Big swing from Matt Henry towards the deep square fence but not enough club on it and Tom Alsop does really well to take it diving to his left in the end.

WICKET Wilson (b Dawson) 10


Gary Wilson tries to give himself room outside off stump but an arm ball from Liam Dawson slides into his off stump.

Derbys 56-5 (Target 250)

Wilson 10, Hughes 2

Steady stuff from Mason Crane, no let up for Derbyshire.

Derbys 49-5 (Target 250)

Wilson 6, Hughes 0

Unfortunately, we are just waiting for this game to end. Derbyshire are cooked.

WICKET Viljoen (c Wood b Abbott) 16

Derbys 48-5

You simply have to have a swing, Hardus Viljoen does, and holes out at long-on.

'Hampshire have been outstanding'

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Hampshire have been outstanding with the ball.

Their fielding has been electric, dynamic and well organised.

Derbys 42-2 (Target 250)

Wilson 5, Viljoen 10

This Powerplay was going to decide if Derbyshire had any chance of chasing this huge score.

Safe to say, the first six has been almost as miserable as their time in the field.

Derbys 35-4 (Target 250)

Viljoen 9, Wilson 0

Sport being sport, there are never certainties but I'd find every penny you can find and lump it on Hampshire's skinny odds now.

WICKET Madsen (c Afridi b Abbott) 4

Derbys 35-4

Surely this is definitely game over now? A firm flick from Wayne Madsen has flown straight to short-fine leg and the man of the night, Shahid Afridi takes the catch.

Derbys 28-3

Madsen 4, Viljoen 2

Wayne Madsen has been in superb form this T20 season and he gets off the mark here with a crashing cut stroke. Only slightly wide from Gareth Berg and punished.

Plenty more needed for Derbyshire.

Derbys 21-3

Madsen 0, Viljoen 0

This is almost game over already.

'Madsen is their only hope'

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

This is the worst possible start for Derbyshire, but in comes their leading run-scorer Wayne Madsen.

He's their only hope of getting anywhere near this score.

WICKET Reece (c Dickinson b Wood) 16

Derbys 21-3

Full length ball, nibbled at by Luis Reece and he gets a thin edge behind. Oh dear

Derbys 9-2

Reece 4, Viljoen 0

A second great over for Hampshire, Gareth Berg bowling with decent pace too.

'It looks like a golf ball'

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

It's not easy under these lights, that ball looks like a golf ball coming down.

But Michael Carberry sets himself steady and takes the catch.

This Hampshire side look a well oiled side. Their bowling so far has been tight, their fielding has been excellent.

WICKET Critchley (c Carberry b Berg) 1

Derbyshire 8-2 v Hampshire 249-8

Length ball from Gareth Berg swung towards the indoor school by Matt Critchley but it doesn't clear the rope and Michael Carberry runs to his left from deep-square leg to take a solid catch.

Derbys 6-1

Reece 2, Critchley 0

Great start for Hampshire. If they can win this Powerplay it's probably job done.

WICKET Godleman (c Crane b Dawson) 4

Derbyshire 4-1 v Hampshire 249-8

Billy Godleman swipes Liam Dawson for the first boundary of the innings but swipes again to deep mid-wicket.

It's a good low catch taken by Mason Crane a foot inside the rope.

Derbyshire need 250 to win

Evening all. Small job for Derbyshire here. Remember they are chasing their first appearance at T20 Finals Day,

Liam Dawson to get the second innings underway...

The players are already back out there.

I need a quick lie down after the Hampshire innings, so Alex Winter will take you through the second half of this T20 Blast quarter-final.

Watch: Afridi wicket

If you missed it earlier - here's how Shahid Afridi was out, a ball after reaching his century.

What an innings. What a player.
