  1. Davies works off the pads for a six

  2. One more to go...

    So, now we know three of the four sides at Finals Day on Saturday, 2 September.

    But, there's still one place up for grabs and it will all be decided at The Oval tomorrow night.

    Surrey host Birmingham Bears in the last T20 Blast quarter-final and it's live here on BBC Sport from 18:45 BST.

    See you then.

  3. Three book their place at Edgbaston

    So, Hampshire, Glamorgan and Notts Outlaws are heading to Edgbaston on Saturday, 2 September.

    The North Group produces a winner for the first time this week and who'd bet against the Outlaws going all the way?

  4. BreakingNOTTS OUTLAWS BEAT SOMERSET BY FIVE WICKETS

    Notts 152-5 (18.3 overs) v Somerset 151-6 (20 overs)

    There it is!

    Steven Mullaney clubs a short ball from Lewis Gregory away for four and Notts Outlaws are heading to Edgbaston for a second successive year.

    A five-wicket win in the end for the hosts, but it wasn't without alarm.

    Dan Christian finishes unbeaten on 36 with Mullaney chipping in with 20.

  5. Notts Outlaws 147-5

    Notts need 5 more to win from 12 balls

    Steven Mullaney's turn to smash Craig Overton for a maximum.

    Huge over that for Notts as they take the Somerset seamer for 19 from those six balls.

    The Outlaws almost home.

  6. Notts Outlaws 140-5

    Notts need 12 more to win off 14 balls

    Dan Christian delivers a huge six right when his team need it to settle some nerves!

  7. Notts Outlaws 128-5

    Notts need 24 more to win off 18 balls

    Nice neat stuff from Roelof van der Merwe.

    No boundaries off the spinner's over. Just the five singles from that set of six.

    He concedes just 22 runs from his four overs.

  8. 'It's Notts' to lose'

    Notts 123-5 (16 overs)

    Jack Brooks

    Yorkshire seam bowler on BBC Radio 5 live Sports Extra

    It's Notts' to lose from here.

    Somerset are battling well, they're staying in the game, they're trying to take it as deep as possible.

    But I feel it's going to take something major for them to win the game.

  9. Notts Outlaws 123-5

    Notts need 29 to win off 24 balls

    Steven Mullaney has joined Dan Christian out there after that Samit Patel run out.

    Lewis Gregory keeps it tidy but cool heads for Notts here should see them through.

  10. WICKET Patel (run out) 45

    Notts Outlaws 120-5

    Silky footballing skills from Somerset skipper Lewis Gregory.

    Dan Christian sets off for a drop and run, but Samit Patel was not winning that foot-race with Gregory who side foots the ball on to the stumps.

    Samit was inches short, even with the slide of his bat. It could well be enough though to see his side into Finals Day.

  11. Notts Outlaws 120-4

    Patel 45, Christian 25

    Samit Patel and Dan Christian bring up a 50 partnership in quick-fire time.

    Michael Leask shows some spectacular acrobatics to prevent a Dan Christian six. He hauls it in while almost bent horizontal over the rope. Great skills.

    Somerset still fighting here.

    Michael Leask
  12. Notts Outlaws 113-4

    Notts need 39 to win off 36 balls

    Four more for Samit Patel and Notts as he cuts Van Meekeren away to the fence.

    All of a sudden in a flash, Notts are well on top here.

  13. Notts Outlaws 109-4

    Patel 40, Christian 18

    Samit Patel tucks into the pace of Paul van Meekeren now.

    He follows up a lovely lofted four to extra cover with a huge six into the Fox Road Stand over the legside.

  14. Notts Outlaws 98-4 (target 152)

    Patel 30, Christian 18

    Expensive last over from Max Waller who finishes with figures of 4-0-28-1.

    Notts now need 54 more runs from 42 balls, so you'd have to fancy them to get through from here, wouldn't you?

  15. Notts Outlaws 97-4

    Patel 30, Christian 17

    Dan Christian's turn to go big this over!

    Max Waller the man who is on the receiving end and all of a sudden Notts have shifted the momentum back towards them in this one.

  16. Notts Outlaws 87-4

    Patel 30, Christian 7

    Earlier in that over from Tim Groenewald, Max Waller couldn't quite get to a half-chance presented by Samit Patel.

    He put in the full leap off the deep mid-wicket boundary and nearly got there.

    Ironic cheers from the home crowd in the process, who are clearly still irked by that earlier Alex Hales incident.

    Samit Patel follows up his six with a lovely dabbed four down to third man.

  17. Notts Outlaws 83-4

    Patel 26, Christian 7

    Big six from Samit Patel and very much welcome for the hosts.

  18. Notts Outlaws 74-4

    Patel 19, Christian 5

    Max Waller into his third over for Somerset who try to tighten the squeeze on this run-chase even further.

    Required rate now pushing towards 10-an-over for the Outlaws. Just five from that over.

  19. Notts Outlaws 69-4 (target 152)

    Patel 17, Christian 2

    That was Tim Groenewald's turn to have a trundle for Somerset in that wicket-taking over - their sixth different bowling option of this innings so far.

    Dan Christian is the new man in for Notts, who now need a partnership and a change in momentum.

  20. 'There was never a single'

    Notts 66-4 (9.3 overs)

    Stephen Moore

    Former Lancashire opener on BBC Radio 5 live Sports Extra

    It's not really Samit's call, it's an understanding between the two of you.

    If you work well together you just go. If Samit was on the money he might have told him to go back straight away, but there was definitely an error in communication.

    There was never a single there.
