Sussex and Hampshire earned home semi-finals in the One-Day Cup with wins in the final round of group games.

Tom Alsop hit 189 not out off 155 balls and Cheteshwar Pujara 132 in Sussex’s 400-4, their highest List A total, as they beat Middlesex by 157 runs.

Hampshire’s 313-9 saw them defeat Yorkshire by 72 runs at Scarborough.

Kent’s three-wicket win over Lancashire knocked out holders Glamorgan while Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire also won through to Friday’s quarter-finals.

Leicestershire will play host to Kent, with Notts away at Lancashire – who still finished second in Group B despite their defeat – on the same day, with the winners progressing to the semi-finals on 30 August.

Sam Northeast made 177 not out off 148 balls for Glamorgan and Billy Root hit an unbeaten 113 as they beat Worcestershire – their stand of 245 a new club record for the fourth wicket against any opposition in List A games – but it was not enough to see them through to the knockout stage.
