Sussex beaten by Yorkshire

Jonny Bairstow was Yorkshire's star as they booked a place in the Friends Life T20 showpiece with a 36-run win over semi-final opponents Sussex.

The Tykes put on a formidable 172 for six as Bairstow (68 not out) and South African David Miller (47) shared a key fourth-wicket stand of 82.

Sussex danger men Luke Wright and Matt Prior both failed, but Chris Nash made a superb 80no from 58 balls in a losing cause.
