Michael Carberry was in the runs for Hampshire

Hampshire followed up their success at t20 finals day by booking their spot in the Clydesdale Bank 40 final with a comprehensive eight-wicket semi-final victory over Sussex at Hove.

Openers Michael Carberry (68) and James Vince (58) launched a blistering assault before Simon Katich (47 not out) and Jimmy Adams (44no) completed the job as Hampshire chased down Sussex's total of 219 for eight with 42 balls to spare.

Luke Wright had made a brilliant 122 for Sussex but they collapsed from 195 for three to 199 for eight as Sean Ervine took three for 36 and Danny Briggs two for 32.

Hampshire will now play in the final at Lord's in a fortnight hoping to complete a limited-overs double having lifted the Friends Life t20 trophy at Cardiff last weekend.
