DONE AND DUSTED Right, we're done for opening night in the NatWest T20 Blast, and a blast is exactly what it has been. Friday nights will offer plenty of entertainment throughout the summer. Notts and Lancashire served up a treat for the Sky Sports cameras, and tomorrow the focus is on Lord's for Middlesex's double header. You can see their games against Essex and Sussex live. Please join us on Saturday to keep up to date with all the action, both on the field and behind the scenes.
Bumble reserves praise for Andy Carter as Notts see off Lancashire by 33 runs
SHARKS BITE BACK They needed 16 off the last after Surrey were hit with penalty runs, then it came down to four from the final delivery of the match, Yasir Arafat duly clobbered Jade Dernbach to the boundary and Sussex have squeezed by Surrey in a thriller down on the coast...

Samit Patel's runs and wickets proved the difference for Notts
WICKET! Anderson b Gurney 0 Great way to finish! Anderson backs away and allows Gurney the chance to knock a stump out of the ground. The Outlaws open their campaign with a 33-run win over the Lightning at Trent Bridge.
Over 18: Lancashire 148/9 (Parry 1, Anderson 0) Red Rose county need 35 off the last two overs with their last pair at the crease.
WICKET! Clark b Carter 44 Not quite so spectacularly this time, but Carter is just as happy as the dangerous Clark misses a swing to leg and is bowled for a valiant 44 that included three sixes and four fours. The fat lady is quickly warming up...
