Cricket news - T20 Blast: Labuschagne 93* not enough to prevent Glamorgan's loss
File Pic: Labuschagne was awarded Player of the Match for his valiant effort.
Lancashire vs Leicestershire, Manchester
Finn Allen's unbeaten 51-ball 73 and Tom Hartley (4-0-18-1) handed Lancashire their second on the bounce as they eased past Leicestershire by 16 runs. After opting to bat, Allen carried his bat to give Lancashire a fighting score of 172 with the next best effort coming from Liam Livingstone who made 25 off 12.
Scott Steel made 54, Josh Inglis got 34 and Leicestershire even had a superb start where the pair made 47 in 4.4 overs. However, Inglis's wicket stalled the momentum and derailed the chase.
Brief scores: Lancashire 172/8 in 20 overs (Finn Allen 73; Gavin Griffiths 4-24) beat Leicestershire156/5 in 20 overs (Scott Steel 54; Matthew Parkinson 2-30) by 16 runs.
Yorkshire vs Warwickshire, Leeds
Jordan Thompson (3-23), David Willey (2-27) and Matthew Waite (2-36) kept Warwickshire to just 144 before a collective batting effort led the side to a six-wicket win. Sam Hain made 59 but received little support. Despite losing Adam Lyth in the opening over, the next five batsmen scored with ease and without breaking a sweat to complete the chase in 18.3 overs.
Brief scores: Warwickshire 144/8 in 20 overs (Sam Hain 59; Jordan Thompson 3-23) lost to Yorkshire 147/4 in 18.3 overs (Jonny Bairstow 34; Danny Briggs 2-28) by six wickets.
Glamorgan vs Gloucestershire, Cardiff
Ryan Higgins defended 19 against Marnus Labuschagne in the final over to give Gloucestershire a thrilling four-run win. Gloucestershire were 161 for 9 at the start of the final over with Labuschagne on strike. The Australia batsman played out dot, 4, dot, dot, 4 and 6 to fall short. Labuschagne, however, won the player of the match award for his unbeaten 93 off 56.
Earlier, Daniel Douthwaite picked up 3 for 28 while Glenn Phillips struck 44 to push Gloucestershire 179 for 6.
Brief scores: Gloucestershire 179/6 in 20 overs (Glenn Phillips 44; Daniel Douthwaite 3-28) beat Glamorgan 175/9 in 20 overs (Marnus Labuschagne 93*; Benny Howell 3-39) by four runs.
Middlesex vs Surrey, London
Will Jacks (70), Jason Roy (45), Jamie Overton (27) and Tom Curran (25) blasted Surrey to 223 and laid the foundation for their 54-run win at Lord's. The opening pair of Roy and Jacks put up 95 in 8.2 overs and the other batsmen carried the momentum ahead to give Surrey a dominating total. Sam Curran then led the clinical display on the day with figures of 4 for 29.
Paul Stirling made 58 in the chase but middle-order meltdown meant the chase never really took off.
Brief scores: Surrey 223/7 in 20 overs (Will Jacks 70; Nathan Sowter 3-40) beat Middlesex 169/9 in 20 overs (Paul Stirling 58; Sam Curran 4-29) by 54 runs.
