  3. Relief for Red Rose

    Lancashire beat Middlesex by 20 runs

    Lancashire celebrate

    What an extraordinary game at Lord's.

    Middlesex were down and out at 24-5, chasing 305 to win.

    But a sensational sixth-wicket stand of 197 between James Harris (117) and John Simpson (74) gave them hope.

    When both fell in the same over, Middlesex kept on fighting, but ultimately came up short.

    Lancashire will go to Hampshire in the semi-finals on Sunday.


    Lancashire 304-4 beat Middlesex 284 all out by 20 runs

    All over!

    Toby Roland-Jones swats a full-toss by Graham Onions but is caught in the deep by Steven Croft.

    Middlesex are all out. Huge relief for Lancashire, having seen their opponents recover from 24-5.


    Sowter run out 8 (Middlesex 284-9, target 305)

    That might be game over...

    It's a comedy of errors. Nathan Sowter under edges what would have been a wide from Graham Onions, the batsmen try and steal a single, but Dane Vilas calmly throws the ball to Onions who whips off the bails.

    Sowter is short of his ground and out.

    21 needed off eight balls as last man Tom Helm comes in.

  6. Middlesex 284-8

    21 needed off 9 balls

    But now a couple of singles. The swingometer goes towards Lancashire.

  7. Middlesex 282-8

    23 needed off 11 balls

    Nathan Sowter slices Graham Onions' first ball of the penultimate over for four.

    Game on! Still.

  8. for Roland-Jones

    Middlesex 278-8 (target 305)

    Middlesex are still fighting!

    Toby Roland-Jones pulls James Anderson's final ball of his ninth over over the fine-leg rope for six.

    27 required off the final two overs. Surely not?

  9. Middlesex 268-8 (target 305)

    37 needed off 18 balls

    Yeah, it was an awful decision by Peter Hartley - the lbw shout hit George Scott outside the line and was missing off stump.

    Lancashire are now heavy favourites with James Anderson to bowl two of the final three overs...

  10. WICKET

    Scott lbw b Mahmood 26 (Middlesex 266-8, target 305)


    But was it outside the line? Saqib Mahmood fires a yorker into the pads of George Scott who swings and misses.

    He's sent on his way - but my initial thoughts were it hit him outside the line of off stump. Lancashire don't care.

    Middlesex need 39 off 20 balls.

  11. Middlesex 262-7 (target 305)

    43 needed off 24 balls

    Too right Middlesex are still in this game!

    Toby Roland-Jones boshes Matt Parkinson straight over his head and bisects the fielders. Four runs.

    George Scott then brings out the reverse sweep - four more.

    11 off the over. 43 required off the final four.

  12. Middlesex 251-7 (target 305)

    54 needed off 30 balls

    Great shot from George Scott!

    After picking singles and twos off Saqib Mahmood, Scott biffs his final ball over cover for four.

    11 off the over. Middlesex are still in this.

    Saqib Mahmood
  13. Middlesex 240-7

    65 needed off 36 balls

    That's nasty.

    Toby Roland-Jones smashes Graham Onions deep into the offside - Keaton Jennings dives forward to try and claim the catch but the ball bounces just in front of him and catches him in the face.

    The physio is on. Jennings is okay, but it was a horrible moment.

  14. Middlesex 231-7 (target 305)

    Scott 6, Roland-Jones 4

    George Scott and Toby Roland-Jones are giving themselves a couple of overs to get themselves in as they knock Matt Parkinson's ninth over for five.

    And rightly so. Middlesex are not quite out of it yet.

    74 needed off 42 balls.

  15. Middlesex 225-7 (target 305)

    Scott 2, Roland-Jones 2

    Those two wickets in three balls have sucked the life out of this Middlesex chase.

    80 needed off 48 balls as Saqib Mahmood concedes a couple off his eighth over. The 22-year-old has 3-21.

  16. Middlesex 223-7 (target 305)

    Scott 1, Roland-Jones 1

    And breathe.

  17. WICKET

    Simpson run out 74 (Middlesex 221-7)

    INCREDIBLE! James Anderson gets his second run out of the day! And another direct hit!

    John Simpson, running to the striker's end has to go for a fine 74 as Jimmy dives, picks up the ball with one hand and throws down the stumps.

    Is that Middlesex's chances gone?

  18. WICKET

    Harris st Vilas b Parkinson 117 (Middlesex 221-6)

    James Harris

    One of the best knocks you will see comes to an end...

    James Harris drags his foot out of the crease, Dane Vilas whips off the bails and he's on his way for a brilliant 117.

    The bowler Matt Parkinson is cock-a-hoop.


  19. Middlesex 219-5 (target 305)

    Harris 117, Simpson 73

    Lancashire have just pulled things back in over the last few overs.

    Josh Bohannon goes for five off the 40th.

    Middlesex need 86 off 60 balls for one of the most unlikely wins in history. Can they do it?

  20. Middlesex 214-5 (target 305)

    Harris 115, Simpson 71

    Good over from spinner Matt Parkinson.

    Three singles from it, no freebies. They've been few and far between for Lancashire over the past hour or so.

    Middlesex require 91 off 11 overs.
