JAMES VINCE, HAMPSHIRE HAWKS

“Confidence is high; the spirit of the group plays a fundamental role [in successful T20 sides] in addition to having high quality players; One thing we certainly have in our dressing room is a great conviction that we can win from any position.

“Obviously it’s been a while since the quarterfinals and the group stages were a few weeks before that, so neither team has been playing T20 cricket recently. We haven’t been here for a few years so I’m really looking forward to playing. “. We have a mix of old and young and a lot of character.

“I feel in reasonable contact; it’s been a good summer so far from a good winter last year so I hope it continues and can make an impact. The Hundred was really good, we couldn’t have expected it to be better.

“This is one of the best places to play cricket in England, period. You just have to enjoy the day, which is one of the best days of the year for county cricket.”

LEWIS GREGORY, SOMERSET

“Three weeks ago we had a fantastic night against Lancashire at home in the quarters, in front of a full crowd, which was incredible and it’s been a pretty disappointing three weeks with the form of the Championship, but Finals Day gives the guys a little buzz and refreshment, everyone is very excited.

“We have done things very well with the bat and the ball at the right moments; we have been quite clinical at all times. [players like Tom Banton, Tom Abell, Tom Lammonby] they have a lot of exuberance and power; Many of them have grown up playing T20 cricket, playing all shots and are used to doing it outside of the park.

“For us, playing in Taunton, you have to execute to the death, otherwise you can disappear on a good surface and a small playing field and I think the addition of Marchant de Lange has been huge for us; he has closed innings and games.for us with the ball brilliantly.

“We have made a conscious decision this year to spend much more time on our death bowling as a group of players and I think we have seen the fruits of that, being quite clinical.”

“The quarterfinal stage has been an obstacle for us, we have been on the wrong side of some and the positive is to carry it forward; it is a very good experience to come out of those great games on the other side as a team.

“Finals Day has been tough to come by, but that’s just a taste of where we’ve evolved as a team – it’s taken a few years for the group to move forward and get the experience that is needed in those big games.

“This is close to the best Kent T20 team I’ve ever been a part of, off-road terms I think it is. It’s a shame we don’t have Adam Milne, who in my opinion is one of the best bowlers in the world. death around the world in recent years, but we have depth and guys who can step in.

“We have been threatening [to win a white-ball trophy] for quite a long time, so as a guy who has been with the club since he was eight years old, it would mean everything to win. “

LUKE WRIGHT, SUSSEX SHARKS

“It saddens me to see Phil and Chris leave; they have been two great artists for us. We want to go out with them with a trophy; there is no question of their commitment to us this season. It is something the club must look for. How we cannot be losing our best players all the time.

“Obviously we have a good chance to win, like all four teams; obviously we are at our strongest point this year, maybe, compared to next year. Does that mean we can’t compete here next year? Absolutely not. Does it make it more complicated? Yes, but you just have to find a different way.

“It’s been a really tough season, which I guess it will always be for that young team, but the club wants to be really young right now in four-day cricket – that’s a process that’s going to be difficult.” on the road sometimes. I feel sorry for some of those young guys. I couldn’t imagine not having top level players around me when I started my career.
