Willey and Levi have got Northants off to a flier here.
That's 4 boundaries in the last 6 balls
SORRY FOLKS - They are off for rain
Right then. 7.50pm start and reduced to 18 overs a side
so we are down to 18 overs. Powerplay now 5 overs.
Dernbach will bowl from the Pav end to Willey
Northants 57/1 from 5 overs
It's Tremlett from t'other end and he looks off the pace to me
It is CARNAGE in the Hollies Stand
FIFTY FOR WILLEY from just 19 balls with 5 fours and 4 sixes at a strike rate of 268
50 partnership between White and Willey off just 28 balls
WICKET Willey c Wilson b Lewis 60
Tremlett is being replaced by De Bruyn
Bit of verbals out there from Dernbach to Willey apparently
They are struggling a bit to time it now
That's the 100 up for Northants in 63 balls
FOUR - the finest of fine chips to 3rd man.
Northants have moved on to 111/2 from 11.1 - this is looking a very healthy total
And now another edge - third man is up so it goes for another 4
Short arm jab from Wakely flies flat into the Hollies stand
Northants 127/2 off 13 overs
50 partnership between White and Wakely from just 31 balls
This is some awful bowling from Surrey.
This is some ridiculous hitting., Six over cow corner brings up Northants 150
This is an absolutely formidable total that Northants are setting here. They've destroyed the Surrey bowling attack.
Dernbach seems to have lost the plot a little. Surrey know this is a HUGE total to chase
Dernbach's 4 over spell went for 55 runs - OUCH
194 - jeez that's a ridiculous total. In fact the second highest ever batting first at Finals Day
So it's Roy and Davies who have this seriously huge task in front of them
I'm treating this like it's a foregone conclusion and of course T20 doesn't work like that
Surrey 17/1 after 3
That isn't enough she says insightfully.
It's been a long day
FInals Day is brilliant but sheesh it's a long day. Some of the crowd are flagging
Daggett drops Davies. You gotta catch those ones - straightforward. Surrey 38/1 after 5
Oh my word. WICKET - Davies is run out . Sloppy sloppy
Then a six followed by a four brings up Surrey's 50
WICKET Maxwell c Murphy b Crook 29
This is just too big an ask for Surrey now surely. 53/4 in the 9th over
OH MY WORD
It is their day - White takes a stunning catch off Daggett to dismiss De Bruyn.
WICKET - Can't keep up
Solanki goes - caught by Duckett for 12
Surrey are 73/6 and this, my friends is GAME OVER
Gary Wilson is an unlikely cult hero
Surrey have 87
The D/L score is 134
Just a little behind then
WICKET Wilson b Crook 14
START THE CAR
WICKET Ansari c Crook b Willey 6
WICKET Lewis c Middlebrook b WIlley 0
a hat-trick for Willey sees Northamptonshire win by a staggering 102 runs
Blimey - what a day
