  • Still nothing happening at Headingley sadly...apart from rain.
    6/27/2014 5:55:30 PM
  • Another game starts...



    6/27/2014 5:58:50 PM
  • That Dilshan v Maxwell battle at the Kia Oval didn't last long thanks to that pesky Gareth Batty, scourge of all Somerset players and fans (and yes, I am biased!). The spinner removed the big-hitting Aussie for only 4 and Hampshire are struggling on 47-4.
    6/27/2014 6:04:29 PM
  • We have an abandonment. Not at Headingley but in Worcester, where the Rapids have been slowed by rain. Their clash with the Notttinghamshire Outlaws is toast.

  • Grey and miserable scene here at Headingley for tonight's @NatWestT20Blast match between @Yorkshireccc and @LancsCCC https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BrJ-wmiCAAA_7UO.jpg
  • My man on the spot in Leeds tells me the news is not good. Weather continuing to be a pain in the proverbial. Really enjoying watching Aaron Finch's knock from a few weeks ago on Sky Sports 2 HD at the moment but would be nicer seeing some live sport.
    6/27/2014 6:17:11 PM
  • Somerset's innings at home to Essex is complete on 150/7. Disappointing for the home side, you would have to say. Top scorer with 40 off 37 balls was former England keeper Craig Kieswetter. Graham Napier with 2-32 for the visitors.
    6/27/2014 6:18:50 PM
  • Match abandoned! 1pt apiece for Yorks & Lancs. Big shame #T20Blast
  • MATCH ABANDONED AT HEADINGLEY
    What a massive shame for the 18,000 supporters who were expected for tonight's game. Stay with Sky Sports 2 HD for the conclusion of the game from Old Trafford a few weeks ago.

  • We'll try again at Trent Bridge tomorrow for Notts v Yorks. Joins us on SS2 from 2pm for that one. In the meantime, WI v NZ on SS3...
  • This might explain the problem!

  • We've hit the point of controversy on Sky Sports 2 where Lancashire were penalised six runs for a slow over-rate. The crowd is about to erupt!

  • Even though there was no play at Headingley in the live game, we'll keep you updated with the scores from the six games in play until the bitter end...which will come when the late starting games finish under lights.
    6/27/2014 7:00:13 PM
  • RESULT - GLOUCESTERSHIRE BT KENT BY THREE WICKETS
    Quite a comeback by the home side at Bristol, with Adam Rouse their unlikely hero. The young wicket-keeper hit 35 off 16 balls (five fours, one six) but three of those fours came in the last four balls off Doug Bollinger, the last one getting them to their target of 151 for victory. That was only his second Twenty20 game for the county....some effort from the 21-year-old who turns 22 next week.

  • Sussex restricted struggling Middlesex to only 107 and have started their chase at Hove - 13/0 off the first 10 balls. 
    6/27/2014 7:34:26 PM
  • And Derbyshire are chasing 190 to beat Warwickshire - they are 11/1 after 11 balls. Oooh, spooky
    6/27/2014 7:34:54 PM
  • RESULT - SURREY BEAT HAMPSHIRE BY EIGHT WICKETS
    An absolute shellacking at the Kia Oval where the South Group leaders are beaten out of sight by a star-studded Surrey side. A target of 132 for victory, which was more than expected at one point, proved nothing for the Brown Caps/Lions/simply Surrey batsmen to overcome. Azhar Mahmood took 3-38 for Surrey but it was Jason Roy who stole the show with some incredible hitting. The opener bashed nine fours and three sixes in a 25-ball knock of 63. Kevin Pietersen (24no) added a couple of late sixes as they eased home in 14 overs, Gary Wilson finishing off with a six.
    6/27/2014 7:47:12 PM
  • RESULT - ESSEX BEAT SOMERSET BY EIGHT WICKETS (D/L)
    Easy for the Eagles as well, as they overcome a late break for bad light to ease home at Taunton with six balls to spare. Somerset tallied 150/7 with Craig Kieswetter scoring 40 but Mark Pettini held Essex together with 60 off 52 balls with Jesse Ryder adding 28 and Ravi Bopara an unbeaten 33 off 21.

  • Wes Durston is absolutely taking the Warwickshire attack apart in Derby. He's just reached his 50 with a six off his 21st ball. They are 78-2 off only 6.4 overs.
    6/27/2014 7:55:28 PM
  • And we would now like to make an official apology to Derbyshire and Wes Durston - seconds after we hit post, he holed out to Will Porterfield off the bowling of Shoaib Malik for 53.
    6/27/2014 7:58:11 PM
  • [recommend] 34 TODAY!
    Of course, we forgot to wish Kevin Pietersen a happy birthday. Hopefully this doesn't mean we'll get treated like Yaya Toure when we try to speak to him in the future. Clearly Surrey did not make this mistake...


    6/27/2014 8:15:12 PM


  • 6/27/2014 8:16:51 PM
  • RESULT - SUSSEX BEAT MIDDLESEX BY SIX WICKETS
    That was all too easy for the Sharks and all too predictable from Middlesex, whose record is now one win from 10 T20 Blast games this season. Only youngster Ryan Higgins (31 off 32 balls) managed a decent score in their 107 all out, which Sussex reached in the 17th over thanks to Chris Nash. Nash hit 74 of their 110-4, finishing things off with his third six.

  • Looking good for Derbyshire to be the only winners in the North Group this evening. And what a time to get their first win of the season! Not quite enough to take them off the bottom of the table though.
    6/27/2014 8:44:19 PM
  • RESULT - DERBYSHIRE BEAT BIRMINGHAM BY THREE WICKETS
    A brilliant game in Derby where the batsmen were definitely on top. Will Porterfield anchored Birmingham's 189-5 with 74 off 41 balls, with Jonathan Webb scoring 50, but Derbyshire chased that down with an over to spare. A superb 53 from Wes Durston and some lusty late hitting from Alex Hughes and Scott Elstone saw them home for a first Natwest T20 Blast win of the season.
    6/27/2014 8:48:50 PM
  • [recommend] AND THAT'S ALL FOR TODAY
    It's been a bit of a mix of cricket and weather, but we got there in the end with five results and three games failing to reach a conclusion. Stars of the day? Apart from the amazing groudstaff around the country, Surrey's Jason Roy for his 25-ball 63 and Wes Durston, whose quickfire 53 helped Derbyshire to their first win of the season.
