Hampshire edge T20 thriller

Hampshire scraped through to the Friends LifeT20 Finals Day with a one-run win over Lancashire at the Rose Bowl.

The home side made an imposing 202 for 3 from their 20 overs, Michael Carberry hitting an unbeaten century. That looked to be beyond Lancashire but Stephen Moore and Karl Brown took them to three figures with just one wicket down before Steven Croft and Gareth Cross nearly saw Lancs over the line in a thrilling finish.
