ECB today confirmed the following schedule for Friends Life t20 finals day on Saturday August 25 at the SWALEC Stadium, Cardiff.

1st semi-final scheduled to start at 11.00am: Sussex vs Yorkshire

2nd semi-final scheduled to start at 2.30pm: Hampshire vs Somerset

Final scheduled to start at 6.45pm

The first semi-final is between Sussex, who last qualified for finals day in 2009 which they went on to win, and Yorkshire who are appearing at finals day for the first time.

The White Rose defeated Worcestershire Royals by 29 runs in front of a home crowd to book their place at finals day while the Sharks beat Gloucestershire by 39 runs in their quarter-final.

The second semi-final is between Hampshire and Somerset and is a repeat of the 2011 semi-final which saw Somerset triumph in a one over eliminator.

In 2010 the sides met in the final which saw the Royals crowned champions. Somerset will be hoping that a fourth successive appearance at finals day will result in victory, adding to the title they won in 2005.
