Lancashire finished third in the group, but made it to the last-four after overcoming Kent Spitfires in Thursday’s quarter-final at Canterbury.

Sussex Sharks will take on the winners of the Somerset and Notts Outlaws tie which will now be played on Monday after Sunday’s game was wiped out because of the adverse weather conditions at Taunton.
