Manchester Originals v London Spirit Semi-Final – (Friday 18:30 BST)
Manchester Originals had to endure a nervy finish to qualify for the semi-finals thanks to victory over the Oval Invincibles on Thursday.
The winner of that game qualified for the semi-final, while a tie would have seen them both eliminated – and that was almost a possibility.
The Originals needed 11 runs off five balls after Tom Curran had frustrated the home side with a good spell.
It looked like the Invincibles would claim victory until P Walter smashed a six off the 97th ball to put Manchester just three wins from victory.
They then hit the winning runs with one ball to spare to finish in second place and set up this clash.
London Spirit ended the weekly rounds in third place thanks to a record of five wins and three defeats.
They come into this clash on the back of a one-wicket loss at the hands of the Birmingham Phoenix, but they will be fully prepared for this massive encounter.
The Originals lost their first three matches and have since won five on the spin. I think they have the momentum, and I am still backing them to win the tournament.
Phil Salt has been in fine form this season. He has smashed 313 runs from eight matches, while Wayne Madsen has been motoring along quite nicely with 150 runs.
I am backing Salt to fire from the off and top score for the Originals on their way to a final appearance against Trent Rockets.
For the Spirit, Adam Rossington leads the way with the most runs. He has scored 164 runs and I am backing him to top score in defeat.
