OMG! I hid behind a cushion for the last few balls - like watching daleks when I was a child. Absolutely fantastic. Even sweeter to see Gareth Batty's miserable face at the end!

After ten overs of the Surrey innings I thought we had lost it.... but we really realed Surrey back from what could have been a massive total. Our batsmen really went about the task... there are a few Bears players that now look very exciting. How have we managed to change so much so quickly.

What a performance and what character to turn the season around like this. Well done you bears, great to see the team play with such confidence and to beat the cocky Surrey swaggers! Disappointed with Rikki Clarke's reaction to taking a couple of wickets, although I'm grateful to him for his overall contribution which helped propel us to finals day!

By making some very shrewd signings. Fair play to Ashley and Jim.

Woakes for the final would be great. I don't expect the ECB to not allow it. Plenty of Test players in last years finals day. That will really strengthen the team. Not sure if Hose will play due to some sort of 'gentlemen's Agreement' between ourselves and Somerset. Shame if he doesn't as he has played a major part with the bat.

Yes but to be fair, Gareth Batty was extremely gracious in defeat when he was interviewed on Sky.  He was the same when Surrey lost the Royal London final.

I've no problem whatsoever with Rikki Clarke celebrating getting a wicket.  Having said that, he did have a shocker of a game.

Anyone know if further tickets will be released for finals day or is it really a sell out?

Surely it was only if we met Somerset - which isn't going to happen. Impressive player.

My understanding is they hold tickets back - I've always managed to get them after the quarter finals.

Just looked on the site and it is sold out - I guess there may be some returns?

As I pointed out a few days ago, the stupid thing about releasing tickets too soon is that if our team don't get to the final, we have a lot of fans who support none of the 4 teams and do they really want to be there. I thought we would get to finals day in 2009 and got a ticket about 2 days before our quarter final which we lost and then had to sit and watch 3 very one-sided games which was a bore. If some of our fans wait (And why shouldn't they), Hampshire, Notts and Glamorgan fans having seen their matches first, get to eat up any tickets left. I got mine on Wednesday on a whim and I was lucky. In 2014 I got mine whilst our quarter-final was still being played as it was obvious we were going to win. On Wednesday there were not that many left. The only way to get any might be to go on 'Get Me In' or 'Viagogo' but you will pay a bit more.
