Lancashire triumph in T20 final

Lancashire are the T20 Blast champions after a 13-run win over Northants in the final at Edgbaston.

James Faulkner, who starred with bat and ball in the semi-final, dislocated his finger in the final. The Australian all-rounder described it as "a day I'll never forget."
