Hampshire are out Play will be underway in a matter of minutes in the semi final match against Surrey at Edgbaston http://t.co/mnXXb0OhAY— @hants_cricket 17 August 2013
Hants have been exceptional, particularly batting second so no surprise they've elected to field first, especially with Duckworth Lewis-revised targets tending to favour the side chasing. So far theough the forecasted rain has stayed away
Second semi - surrey cricket won the toss and will field first against hants cricket FLt20— @GeO_mZa 17 August 2013
Sat next to former Surrey coach Chris Adams during the lunch interval who fancies the Lions, having a tipped them to beat Northants in the final...Let's hope he's wrong
As expected, Hampshire are unchanged so Griffiths and Bates are left out from the 15 that travelled as well as Riazuddin and Roberts
Awesome innings from Steven Crook, who powered Northants home with an unbeaten 46 from just 24 balls...
Game over, Northants make the t20 final for the first time after beating Essex by seven wickets with 11 balls to spare. Covers on immediately.
Just 2 needed for Northants... with two overs left
Steven Crook hits another colossal straight six. Game over with less than a run-a-ball now required
Northants 150-3 after taking 17th over off Reece Topley's last over, the 17th. 19 needed off 18 balls
50 partnership between Whiyte and Crook from just 26 deliveries... we could have a repeat of Hampshire's 2009 qf later.
Steven Crook and Cameron White going well for Northants, having blazed four sixes between them. Northants needing 28 from 22 balls with seven wickets in hand.
The weather is holding out here at Edgbaston as NorthHants chase 168-5 in the first semi. #FinalsDay http://t.co/tW2jayN32u— @hants_cricket 17 August 2013
