WE’RE through to finals day in the T20 once again – it’s the sixth time in a row, which is a record, and it’s a really nice feeling.

We’ve now got a huge day on the calendar for all of the squad to look forward to and as players, that’s what you want.

I don’t think us getting through is a formality at all because when you’re playing in a quarter-final, you know that the other team deserve to be there but we’re used to those situations now.

You’ve got to be confident and back your skills and if you do that, it means you’ve got every chance of going through.

In the end, the light helped get us through. The match was brought to an end because of the poor light and it is a bit silly starting a game at 5.30pm when you never know what the weather’s going to do in England.

But that’s something that we can’t worry about and in the end, it’s helped us get through.

And we’d still already posted nearly 200, which is a really good score.

By the time you read this, we’ll have already played Notts in our last group game in the One-Day Cup and, hopefully, we’ll be through to the quarter-finals in that competition too.

It was an absolutely massive game for us and one that we knew we had to win.

Trent Bridge is a tough place to go but we’ve done well there in the past and they would have been fearing us going there.

Notts had been going well in the competition too but they were already through to the quarter-finals, so it was all about what we did as we were the ones with it all to gain.

We’ve been doing great in the one-day competitions in recent years and it would be brilliant if we could have another finals day to look forward to later this summer, but there’s a long way to go yet.

It was disappointing to lose at Lancashire on Monday night. They got over 300, which was probably 20 or 30 runs too many for us to chase as the wicket began to spin and the ball got softer.

But for me, I’ve found some form in the One-Day Cup this year, with bat and ball, and I was pretty happy with my half-century.
