Defending champions Hampshire will host Durham at The Rose Bowl on August 7 in one of the Friends Life t20 quarter-final fixtures

ECB today confirmed the following quarter-final fixtures for the 2011 Friends Life t20 competition:

Sunday 7 August, 1700: Hampshire Royals vs Durham Dynamos, The Rose Bowl, Southampton.

Monday 8 August, 1910: Sussex Sharks vs Lancashire Lightning, The County Ground, Hove.

The Friends Life t20 quarter-finals begin on Saturday August 6 at Grace Road with Leicestershire Foxes taking on Kent Spitfires.

Leicestershire are through to the knock out stages of a Twenty20 competition for the first time since 2006 when they defeated Notts Outlaws to lift the trophy.

2010 runners-up Somerset travel to Nottingham on August 7 to face Notts Outlaws in the first of two quarter-finals to be played on Sunday.

Defending champions Hampshire Royals are also in action on 7 August, hosting Durham Dynamos at The Rose Bowl at 1700hrs.

The fourth quarter-final will take place on Monday August 8 with 2009 winners Sussex Sharks hoping that home advantage will help to defeat Lancashire Lightning, who have not progressed beyond the quarter-finals since 2007.
