This was a great match to watch and a very close win for Sussex. Yorkshire batted first and set a target of 178 which looked decent on the wicket. Sussex was doing some damage with the ball having Yorkshire at 33/3. Ballance and Kohler-Cadmore build a good partnership to move the score on to 118/4.

This sealed the win with 2 balls remaining. Yorkshire was unlucky to get knocked out as they had played well through the group stages.

The semi-final will be a tense affair as it is a big day for both teams. Kent hasn’t been at finals day since 2009 so this is a big occasion for them.

All the Cricketics team thinks this will be a Kent win. They have too much for Sussex and as long as they play the team in front of them and not the occasion they will get the win.
