Hot Spot - Birmingham, Lancashire, Surrey Qualify For T20 Blast Finals Day

Matt Carter and John Pennington review the first three NatWest T20 Blast quarter-finals, look ahead to the Nottinghamshire-Hampshire clash and look back at the start of the Royal London One-Day Cup.

They look back at Lancashire's win over Glamorgan, which featured a triple-wicket maiden from Jordan Clark, Surrey's Jason Roy-inspired win over Worcestershire and Birmingham's win away from home over Essex which may have come as a surprise to some.

Then they look ahead to the fourth and final game, which sees in-form Nottinghamshire meet Hampshire, a team with an outstanding record in this competition.

And they finish off by discussing the first week of action in the Royal London One-Day Cup, which has seen a bit of a shake-up to the established order with the likes of Derbyshire, Gloucestershire and Kent excelling as 50-over cricket returns to the domestic game.
