FLt20, July 23: As it happened

On another exciting evening of Friends Life t20 action, Lancashire Lightning's clash with Leicestershire Foxes ended in a tie while Derbyshire Falcons and Glamorgan emerged victorious.

RESULT! Derbyshire Falcons (108/1) beat Notts Outlaws (92/7) by 16 runsThat's that then. Derbyshire stop their local rivals reaching the quarter-finals at this juncture by virtue of an impressive victory in a rain-reduced game.

9:52pm - Notts are sinking without a trace, Ian Butler and Steven Mullaney departing in the same Alex Hughes over.

9:44pm - Burgoyne grabs a second wicket, James Taylor edging to short third-man and all but ending Notts' hopes.

9:42pm - Derbyshire are taking control now, with David Hussey the latest man to fall.

9:34pm - WHAT A CATCH! Lumb hits Peter Burgoyne to long-off and Mark Turner takes a fine half-chance diving forward to secure a key wicket. He boots the ball in the air goalkeeper-style as a result, and why not?

9:31pm - The Outlaws are 43 for two, following Samit Patel's departure, and Lumb has all of those runs! And what's more, he has them off just 14 balls; it's been quite an effort thus far.

9:25pm - At Trent Bridge, Notts lost Alex Hales cheaply yet Michael Lumb is leading the way having struck the second over for 21.

RESULT! Glamorgan (161/5) beat Worcestershire Royals (157/6) by five wicketsWell, maybe it was not so tight. Ben Wright's 22 not out sees the hosts home with five balls to spare.

9:18pm - Things are tight in Cardiff! Andrew has snared Goodwin for 59 and Glamorgan need 18 off two overs.

9:10pm - Derbyshire, despite having lost Hughes for 46, roll on as Durston brings up his 25-ball half-century in an excellent total of 108 for one. Goodwin has also reached his fifty in Cardiff, having seen Allenby depart for 50.

8:55pm - What a start from Derbyshire. They are 78 without loss after six overs with Hughes on 40 and Durston 35. Jim Allenby, who is enjoying a fine season, has reached a half-century, with his and Murray Goodwin's 47-run stand putting Glamorgan in control!

8:39pm - Glamorgan lose a third as Moeen Ali traps Marcus North lbw amid Hughes and Durston giving Derbyshire a fine start in Nottingham.

8:30pm - Gareth Andrew ousts Chris Cooke to leave Glamorgan in further trouble, while Chesney Hughes and Wes Durston open the batting for Derbyshire.

RESULT! Leicestershire Foxes (139/9) have tied with Lancashire Lightning (139/9)Lancashire remarkably share the spoils for the second time this season as Mitchell McClenaghan sweeps Shakib Al Hasan for four off the final ball! Incredible.

8:07pm - Hurrah! There will be a game, of nine overs per side, at Trent Bridge, where Notts Outlaws have chosen to bowl.

8pm - A dramatic finish is in the offing in Manchester, where Lancashire - who are eight down - require 13 off the final over.

7:56pm - Leicestershire have taken control at Grace Road with Lancashire now seven down, while Worcestershire - for whom Kervezee hit 44 - have posted a solid 157 for six.

7:39pm - Andre Russell, who is enjoying a fine spell as one of Worcestershire's overseas players, has fallen cheaply but his side remain on course for a big total.

7:32pm - Suddenly it's game on at Grace Road, Steven Croft falling to Josh Cobb.

7:25pm - Samaraweera has been run out for an excellent 65, while Lancashire are 66 for three following the departures of Karl Brown and Tom Smith.

7:11pm - The Red Rose have lost Stephen Moore yet remain on course for victory. At the SWALEC Stadium, Alexei Kervezee and Thilan Samaraweera are prospering.

7pm - Lancashire are off to a flying start in pursuit of 140, while Worcestershire have recovered from the early loss of Moeen. The news from Trent Bridge is not so good, with another inspection taking place in an hour.

6:45pm - Worcestershire lose an early wicket as Graham Wagg claims the prized scalp of Moeen Ali.

6:30pm - Leicestershire have managed to reach 139 for nine, a score that should set up an interesting run-chase, on the back of Rob Taylor's quick 15 not out.

6:16pm - Mitchell McClenaghan grabs two wickets in an over as Leicestershire are reduced to 101 for seven.

6:10pm - Lancashire continue to dominate at Grace Road, Kerrigan ousting Shakib Al Hasan and Arron Lilley getting rid of Greg Smith for 45. Elsewhere, an inspection will take place at Trent Bridge in 50 minutes due to rain while Worcestershire have chosen to bat against Glamorgan.

5:55pm - The recovery has halted somewhat. After Kabir Ali had Burns caught and bowled, Simon Kerrigan got rid of Niall O'Brien to leave Leicestershire three down.

5:38pm - Greg Smith and Joe Burns are leading Leicestershire's rebuilding effort yet making slow progress. The hosts are 34 for one after six overs.

5:20pm - Leicestershire have made far from the desired start, Glen Chapple ousting Josh Cobb for a duck.

5pm - This game is a crucial one for Lancashire, who could all but secure a quarter-final spot by emerging victorious. For all the team news and permutations, read our preview.

4:45pm - Evening all. Today's Friends Life t20 action kicks off in half an hour with the North Group match between Leicestershire Foxes and Lancashire Lightning.

A further two fixtures are scheduled to begin at 6:30pm, North Group leaders Notts Outlaws hosting Derbyshire Falcons and Glamorgan taking on Worcestershire Royals in a Midlands/Wales/West Group clash at the SWALEC Stadium.
