Derbyshire and Worcestershire are the only two teams yet to make it to Finals Day

Surrey won the first competition in 2003 and made the finals in 2004, 2005 and 2006 but haven't made it back since.

Last year, Gloucestershire were hammered for 230 for four by Sussex at Hove and 213 for two by Worcestershire at New Road - the highest scores of 2012.

Hampshire have beaten Surrey in their last five home encounters.

Leading 2012 wicket-takers Chris Liddle, Mitchell Starc and Reece Topley were all left-armers. Leading run-scorers Phil Hughes and David Miller were also left-handers.

The only tie in last year's competition was between Durham and Lancashire.
