Yorkshire Vikings qualify for Finals Day after dramatic win

Yorkshire win dramatic quarter-final

Surrey 159/7 lost to Yorkshire Vikings 160/5 by 1 run

Surrey's captain for the evening, Will Jacks, won the toss and put the Vikings into bat. That decision proved to be a sensible one as Jacks himself had Adam Lyth gone on the third ball of the night!

The home team continued their dominant start and had a second wicket before Yorkshire could get to double figures. Finn Allen was gone 3. Gus Atkinson was the handed the ball and delivered this beauty. 

Yorkshire showed signs of resistance through David Willey and Tom Kohler-Cadmore. The pair put on just under 100 together. The highlight of that partnership was this huge David Willey six!

Willey was gone for 30 from 37 and Kohler-Cadmore soon followed. He did pass 50 however, but was dismissed for 62 (48 deliveries). Will Fraine came to the crease and added some big hitting into the mix for the Vikings. 

His power earned him a quick 32* from 14, helping Yorkshire to finish on 160/5. Surrey came out to bat and also found themselves a wicket down early on. Jacks was gone for a single (4 balls). Tom Curran was promoted to three for this one and joined Rory Burns in the middle. The latter of that pair went big, sending one into the crowd!

Those two put on 55 together before Shadab Khan bowled Burns with a beauty.

Wickets began to fall for Surrey. Curran went for 36 from 28 and the following few batters couldn't add to the score. Ollie Pope hit a boundary, but was caught for 11 from 8. Aaron Hardie also went cheaply for 3 from 4. Jamie Overton came to bat and changed the complexion of the match. He went HUGE for this one!

And this one...

It looked as if that innings had won it for Surrey, but what came next was utterly brilliant. We'll just let you watch the conclusion to this one.
