Finals Day goes to reserve day at Edgbaston - Kia Oval Skip to main content

No play was possible on the scheduled Vitality Blast Finals Day at Edgbaston on Saturday due to persistent rain.

All fours teams will now return to Edgbaston on Sunday, in the hope that both semi-finals and the final can be played to completion.

Weather permitting, Surrey’s semi-final with Gloucestershire will begin at 11am. The other semi-final, between Nottinghamshire & Lancashire, will follow shortly afterwards.

All three matches will be live on Sky Sports and therefore we will not be able to run our usual live streaming service.

Following the cancellation of play today, the following process will be in effect for tomorrow’s Vitality Blast Finals Day’s reserve day.

We will do everything possible to play three matches tomorrow, each of a minimum of 5 overs per innings, to complete the competition.

We are committed to trying to ensure that the competition is completed on-field. As such, if we are unable to complete the first semi-final, Finals Day will be re-scheduled for 7 October at Edgbaston for which there will be no reserve day.

However, if we complete one semi-final tomorrow but are unable to complete the second semi-final and/or the final, match(es) will be determined by a bowl out or bowl outs.

If it proves impossible to complete Finals Day on field on 7 October, match(es) will be determined by a bowl out or bowl outs.

The above has been unanimously agreed with all four teams, the ECB Board, the host venue and our broadcast partners.
