Get involved

  1. Hants 207-5 (42 overs, target 242)

    Need 35 more runs off 48 balls

    Gareth Berg the new batsman and Rilee Rossouw calls him through for a couple at the end of the over.

    He survives a tight one and a review with the third umpire diving into his ground.

  2. Somerset 'peaking at right time' - Abell

    Tom Abell

    We're closing in on the finsh at the Ageas Bowl, with Hampshire looking like the favourites to go through to meet Somerset in the final.

    Somerset beat Nottinghamshire by 115 runs earlier on and here's what captain Tom Abell had to say afterwards: "It means everything to lead the side through to a Lord's final. It will be such a special day, obviously with it being the last final at Lord's and it's been a while since we were there.

    "I'm just so proud of the team, the squad and the coaching staff. I feel we are peaking at the right time and probably peaked in the quarter-final and semi-final, which is great with Lord's in mind.

    "We got off to a fantastic start today, and we felt it was a really good score. They bowled well at the death but I thought we were good in all three disciplines. "


    Dawson c Jennings b Parkinson 28 (Hants 204-5, 41-4 overs)

    Time for a late twist?

    Liam Dawson miscues one off Matt Parkinson to Keaton Jennings at point.

    Are Lancashire still in this? Hampshire still need 38 more runs off 50 balls.

  4. Dropped catch

    Hants 201-4 (40.4 overs)

    Here comes Saqib Mahmood again. Lancashire in desperate need of wickets quickly.

    200 up as Liam Dawson works one down to third man.

    Oh no! This should've been taken - Dawson skies one from a pull shot down to fine leg but Matt Parkinson can't cling on and the chance is spilled!

  5. Hants 199-4 (40 overs, target 242)

    Need 43 more runs off 60 balls

    Oh no, falling apart now for Lancashire. Four wides at the start of Graham Onions' latest over.

    Rilee Rossouw then carves four wide of third man next ball to register the 50 partnership and take him on to 81.

    Liam Dawson also into the groove now as he works two off his legs.

  6. Hants 186-4 (39 overs, target 242)

    Need 56 more runs off 66 balls

    Matt Parkinson back on for his eighth over for Lancashire.

    More good strike rotation from Rilee Rossouw and Liam Dawson nudging the ball around. That'll suit Hampshire right now.

    This will suit them even more as Dawson hammers a four straight back past the bowler and almost straight into Rossouw's face at the non-striker's end.

    Repeats the dose next ball with a lovely sweep to square leg. Nice pressure reliever.

    Liam Dawson and Rilee Rossouw
  7. Hants 175-4 (38 overs, target 242)

    Need 67 more runs off 72 balls

    More Graham Onions for Lancashire at the Hotel End.

    Almost a superb piece of fielding from Rob Jones at extra cover to claim a thrilling catch. He's certainly stopped four though as that whistled off Rilee Rossouw's bat.

    Four off the over and Rossouw now up to 75, Liam Dawson unbeaten on 12.

  8. Hants 171-4 (37 overs, target 242)

    Needs 71 more runs off 78 balls

    Saqib Mahmood into his eighth over. Not looked as penetrative as his brilliant first spell.

    Good rotation of the strike again from Rilee Rossouw and Liam Dawson as they keep the scoreboard moving.

  9. Post update

    It's fair to say that the Somerset squad are pretty chuffed at the prospect of a Lord's final appearance after beating Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge by 115 runs.

  10. Hants 167-4 (36 overs, target 242)

    Need 75 more runs from 84 balls

    Graham Onions continues for Lancashire. Not been the most threatening of their bowling options so far.

    Feel Lancashire need another wicket here and Rilee Rossouw is the key for Hampshire.

    Just four off that over but the required rate still at a manageable 5.35 for Hampshire.

  11. Hants 163-4 (35 overs, target 242)

    Need 79 more runs off 90 balls

    Saqib Mahmood returns again for Lancashire, but there's still a handy flow of runs for Hampshire with ones and twos.

    Rilee Rossouw then finds a decisive boundary down the ground through mid-on to push him up to 70.

  12. Hants 155-4 (34 overs, target 242)

    Need 87 more runs off 96 balls

    Graham Onions has been back in the attack for a couple of overs now.

    He was the one who forced that run out of James Vince with wicketkeeper Dane Vilas standing up to the stumps.

    Nice drive to Rilee Rossouw gets him two but no more as the sweeper on the rope cuts it off.

    More good running as they pick up three down to fine leg.

    Rilee Rossouw
  13. Hants 149-4 (33 overs, target 242)

    Need 93 more runs off 102 balls

    Another tidy Matt Parkinson over concedes just three runs.

    Liam Dawson the man having to settle himself into things as the new batsman.

  14. Hants 146-4 (32 overs, target 242)

    Need 96 more runs off 108 balls

    Well then....

    Are we into a tight affair now with that dismissal of James Vince?

    Still work to be done here for Hampshire to get home.

  15. WICKET

    Vince run out 79 (Hants 145-4, 31.2 overs)

    James Vince is run out


    That could be absolutely crucial.

    It's absolutely needless for Hampshire as James Vince has to depart with Rob Jones doing the pick up and throw to the wicketkeeper's end.

    Rilee Rossouw called him through, but Vince was well short as Dane Vilas whipped off the bails.

  16. Umpire review

    Hants 145-3

    Could be a run out here out of nowhere....

  17. Hants 144-3 (31 overs, target 242)

    Vince 78, Rossouw 57

    Another Matt Parkinson over from the Pavilion End as Hampshire get the runs required below 100.

    Rilee Rossouw has again shoulder charged Matt Parkinson over when he follows through for a quick single.

    Parkinson far from amused this time. Hampshire nudging their way closer to joining Somerset in the final.

  18. Hants 140-3 (30 overs, target 242)

    Vince 76, Rossouw 55

    Another James Anderson over as Lancashire keep searching for the breakthrough.

    Such patience and time from both James Vince and Rilee Rossouw as they can wait to pick their gaps.


    Somerset 337 v Notts 222 (38.2 overs)

    Game over at Trent Bridge as Luke Fletcher perishes, caught at long-off after making 43 from only 31 balls.

    Lewis Gregory takes the wicket and the Notts run-chase comes to an end with more than 11 overs unused.

    The trip to Lord's on 25 May will be Somerset's first in a final since 2011 - and they will be eager to end a run of three defeats at the home of cricket since they lifted the C&G Trophy in 2001.

    Notts were bowling along at 110-1, but the loss of four wickets for 25 runs, including those of Alex Hales and Samit Patel in successive overs, turned the game decisively in Somerset's favour.
