Northamptonshire Steelbacks produced a stunning bowling performance to shock the Birmingham Bears in the first semi-final of the T20 Blast competition at Edgbaston.

Four early wickets for Northamptonshire slowed Birmingham's hopes for a big early score, with David Willey getting the top three.

Fifty-one from Ateeq Javid helped Birmingham post a respectable score though, with Laurie Evans scoring a quick-fire 18 to total 131 from their 20 overs.

Northamptonshire started strongly though, and apart from a slight wobble when a few wickets fell in the middle overs, cruised to the total.

Opener Richard Levi top scored for the Steelbacks, scoring an unveaten 63, with Shahid Afridi hitting the winning runs with two overs to spare.

Northamptonshire will take on either Hampshire or Lancashire in this evening's final.
