That was a slightly earlier finish than I was expecting!

I'll be back on Thursday from 18:15 BST for Notts Outlaws against Somerset.

Hope you can join me then.

Still to come

So, Glamorgan join Hampshire at Finals Day on 2 September at Edgbaston.

Who else will be there?

The T20 Blast quarter-final action continues here on BBC Sport until the end of this week.

On Thursday, Notts Outlaws host Somerset at Trent Bridge while on Friday The Oval will be packed out as Surrey meet Birmingham Bears.

Make sure you drop by and catch all the action.


Glamorgan 126-1 (13.4 overs) beat Leicestershire 123 by nine wickets

That is as-easy a victory as you are ever likely to see for Glamorgan.

Colin Ingram finishes the game with a flick to the leg-side boundary and ends on 70 off 43 balls.

Jacques Rudolph provided fine support with 46 not out.

Glamorgan are into their first Finals Day since 2004.

Two sixes for Ingram

Glamorgan 120-1

Colin Ingram isn't hanging around now.

Tom Wells is the eighth bowler Leicestershire have turned to but it makes no difference.

Ingram smashes him over long on for six before pulling him for another.

He follows it up with a cut for four. Glamorgan need just four to win.

Colin Ingram hits Tom Wells for six

for Colin Ingram

Glamorgan 104-1

Colin Ingram is some player.

The South African goes to his half-century off 38 balls.

He's making sure Glamorgan do this at a canter.

They need 20 from 42 deliveries.

'Playing for pride'

Glamorgan 96-1 (12 overs)

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"At the moment, you imagine this is a lost cause for Leicestershire.

"But, you're playing for pride more than anything. You've got to try and do something to force a mistake or engineer something different from the opposition."

Glamorgan 96-1

Rudolph 42, Ingram 46

I'm not sure what to call that from Jacques Rudolph.

It was something of a reverse slog sweep which has flown to the point boundary of Colin Ackermann.

What's easier than walking in a park?

Glamorgan 87-1

Rudolph 34, Ingram 45

This is a walk in the park for Glamorgan.

They need 37 from 54 deliveries.

Glamorgan 85-1

Rudolph 33, Ingram 45

See you later!

Mathew Pillans bangs one in short and Colin Ingram pulls it behind square for his third six.

Ingram is five away from a half-century.

Glamorgan 78-1

Rudolph 32, Ingram 39

That's simply a great cricket shot from Jacques Rudolph.

Clint McKay strays slightly off line and the opener creams him to the cover boundary.

Pure timing. The batsmen take five singles off the rest of the over - that's all they need.

Glamorgan 69-1

Rudolph 25, Ingram 37

Jacques Rudolph joins the party.

The Glamorgan skipper swipes Gavin Griffiths through mid-wicket to the fence, then smacks a couple more boundaries through the off side.

15 come from the over and the Welsh county are surely heading to their first Finals Day since 2004.

Glamorgan 54-1

Rudolph 10, Ingram 37

20-year-old spinner Callum Parkinson comes on and concedes seven runs from the over and no boundaries.

Glamorgan are cruising now though. They need just 70 off 12 overs.

'Have to take your chances'

Glamorgan 47-1 (7 overs)

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"You've got to take every opportunity when you have a small total on the board.

"They might be basic opportunities like one of those two dropped catches we've seen, but you just have to take them to give yourself any chance at all."

Glamorgan 47-1

Rudolph 7, Ingram 33

That is absolutely ginormous from Colin Ingram.

The Glamorgan number three swats Cameron Delport WAY over long on for a huge six.

That's Ingram's 27th max of the 2017 T20 Blast and he's now leading the way.

Dropped catch

Glamorgan 38-1

Another one goes down. This time it's much easier though.

Colin Ingram slices Cameron Delport straight to Clint McKay at backward point but he drops the simplest of chances.

An absolute nightmare for the Leicestershire man.

'Glamorgan haven't panicked'

Glamorgan 37-1 (6 overs)

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"Excellent from Glamorgan, good from Leicestershire as well.

"Glamorgan haven't panicked despite starting slowly, but they've gathered some momentum at the back end of that powerplay.

"It's not easy batting out there, but they've become used to the pace of the surface now."

Dropped catch

Glamorgan 37-1

Oh, chance down.

Jacques Rudolph cuts Mathew Pillans' first ball towards Cameron Delport at point, the fielder dives to his right but can't cling on. It was a really tough chance.

Just to rub salt into the wound, Colin Ingram finds the boundary a couple of balls later.

Glamorgan 27-1

Rudolph 4, Ingram 16

Despite the six off his first ball, it's a cracking comeback from Gavin Griffiths.

The seamer bowls five dots.

Batting is not easy.

Maximum for Ingram

Glamorgan 27-1

Seamer Gavin Griffiths comes into the attack, drops his first ball short, and smack - Colin Ingram pulls him behind square and over the rope.

It's Ingram's 26th maximum of the tournament.

'Wickets are key'

Glamorgan 21-1 (4 overs)

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"These two experienced international batsman have got to put the bowlers under pressure for Glamorgan.

"But there's a little bit of flexibility now with this Leicestershire bowling attack by sneaking through a couple of overs from Aadil Ali.

"The run-rate is creeping up a bit, but wickets are key for them."

Glamorgan 21-1

Rudolph 4, Ingram 10

Colin Ingram finally breaks the shackles with a powerful sweep to the boundary off Aadil Ali.

The South African then dances down the track and launches the spinner over cover for four.

Much better over for Glamorgan - 10 from it.

Glamorgan 11-1

Rudolph 3, Ingram 1

It's really edgy out there.

Jacques Rudolph pops a couple up in the air off Clint McKay but they fall short of the fielders.

The batsmen are struggling to time anything.

Glamorgan 8-1

Rudolph 2, Ingram 1

Leicestershire off-spinner Aadil Ali is first up from the other end.

He keeps it tight and just three singles come from his opening set of six.

Maybe this pitch isn't quite as easy to bat on as we first thought?

'McKay sets the tone'

Glamorgan 5-1 (1 over)

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"We said about setting the tone - Clint McKay is the leader of the ship and he's got the wicket Leicestershire desperately needed to get this ship moving forward.

"A decent catch there on the ring to get them a vitally important breakthrough."

WICKET Donald (c Ackermann b McKay) 4

Glamorgan 5-1

That's pretty brainless cricket from Aneurin Donald.

Glamorgan just need to knock these runs off, but Donald comes out swinging and smacks Clint McKay straight to Colin Ackermann at mid off.

Colin Ingram comes in at three.

Glamorgan 0-0

Thanks Adam.

Aneurin Donald and Jacques Rudolph will set about chasing down this modest target of 124 for Glamorgan.

Clint McKay has the new ball for Leicestershire.

Time to resume

Leicestershire 123 v Glamorgan

Right, Leicestershire's bowlers are out there completing their warm-ups and looking pretty determined to make amends for their failure with the bat.

That means time for me to stop gassing on and step aside for Gary Smee to take you through this Glamorgan run-chase...

Vipers & Stars through to Finals Day

While we wait for the second half of this game, just chance to bring you up to date with events elsewhere today.....

Delport delivers a beauty

Leicestershire 123 v Glamorgan

You won't see many better deliveries all season than this absolute rip-snorter from Marchant de Lange.

Cameron Delport was the first wicket of the night to fall as he was beaten all ends up by a pretty special yorker....

Foxes were flying early on

Leicestershire 123 v Glamorgan

As mentioned, Leicestershire were looking strong after winning the toss and electing to bat first.

Luke Ronchi went off like a train and smashed the first six of the game.

But, his maximum was no challenge for a silver-haired fan, who celebrated in the crowd after making a handsome catch....

Leicestershire bowled out for 123

As James Taylor says, great display by the Glamorgan bowling unit there. Three different bowlers delivered a dozen dot balls each in their four-over spells.

Leicestershire got off to a flier, but they had little direction or plan once the powerplay overs were done.

'Glamorgan were clinical'

Leicestershire 123 (19.2 overs)

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Glamorgan have been excellent like a well-oiled machine.

They were clinical in the outfield, took good catches and good run outs.

It was a very disciplined all-round performance. They took wickets at the right time and didn't let Leicestershire get any momentum.

WICKET Griffifths (b Wagg) 11

Leicestershire 123

There you go - that's your lot for this Leicestershire innings!

Graham Wagg finds away through a big wind up and swing from Gavin Griffifths and he rearranges his stumps in the process.

The Foxes are all out for just 123 in this quarter-final and the hosts will fancy their chances of making the 124 required to reach Finals Day for the first time since 2004.

Gavin Griffifths wickets hit by Graham Wagg

Leicestershire 123-9

Parkinson 8, Griffifths 11

First boundary for 57 balls was that six from Gavin Griffifths.

Maybe just maybe something for Leicestershire to bowl at here as Graham Wagg takes the final over for Glamorgan.

Leicestershire 122-9

Griffifths 10, Parkinson 8

Hogan knows best. Michael Hogan - in this scenario rather than his "what you gonna do brother?" namesake Hulk from yesteryear of WWE - as he comes in to bowl his fourth over.

But, I don't think he saw a big pulled six from number 11 Gavin Griffifths coming which takes the Foxes beyond 120!

Leicestershire 113-9

Parkinson 6, Griffifths 3

Graham Wagg - the wily campaigner - ambles in but rather sloppily delivers a couple of wides down the legside to give Leicestershire a couple of freebie runs.

Numbers 10 and 11 here for the Foxes just stealing a few more runs which, you never know, might make a difference later.

Leicestershire 106-9

De Lange 4-0-23-2

Marchant de Lange continues from the River Taff End to finish off his four overs and he goes hunting his third wicket and the final one of this Leicestershire dig.

Parkinson and Griffiths eek out a few singles to tick things over a touch. Three runs off it. De Lange also delivers a dozen dot balls from his spell.

Leicestershire 103-9

Parkinson 1, Griffiths 0

Still four overs to go in this Leicestershire innings and the last pair have been left with a lot to do to make this total even remotely respectable....

'Leicestershire's last hope gone'

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

That was Leicestershire's last hope. Yes he's a bowler, yes he's not renowned for his batting, but he can strike a good ball.

Leicestershire are in serious doubt of seeing out their 20 overs.

WICKET McKay (c Donald b Hogan) 6

Leicestershire 102-9

Lovely catch from Aneurin Donald gets Glamorgan a ninth wicket of the evening.

Clint McKay tries to hit Michael Hogan away to the cover boundary, but Donald comes sprinting in and takes a lovely two-handed catch diving in.

Hogan has a first wicket of the night as last man Gavin Griffifths comes in for Leicestershire.
