Kumar Sangakkara's 100th hundred in all cricket kept Surrey on course for a third straight Royal London One-Day Cup final with a close-fought quarter-final win over Yorkshire at Headingley.

"No, definitely not", Sangakkara said when asked by his co-commentators if he was tempted.

"It felt pretty good, I wasn't really thinking about that because I was just told about it when I walked in!"

Adam Lyth top-scored in Yorkshire's reply with 75 off 83 balls, but the Vikings fell away from a healthy 126-1 in the 25th over.

She said he was using a long gun and exchanging fire with law enforcement officers, one of whom yelled for her to get down. Four people were shot in the attack, including Representative Steve Scalise, who's listed as being in critical condition.

It was the veteran left-hander's 39th List A hundred, adding to his 61 first-class centuries, to join the likes of Don Bradman (117 hundreds), Sachin Tendulkar (142) and WG Grace (124) in notching a ton of tons.

This was the clash between north and south to decide who would go west to play a semi-final at Worcester on Saturday. However, they were left in a spot when Borthwick and Rory Burns departed in quick succession, leaving their side at 70 for 3 in the 15th over.

From the moment that he came to the crease in the fourth over, after Mark Stoneman had edged a fullish ball from Ben Coad to the wicketkeeper, he looked at his radiant best beneath overcast skies.

Sangakkara and Foakes dominated the middle of the innings, with the former hitting four sixes, all down the ground or over mid-wicket. Sangakkara was stumped off Rafiq, who was the pick of the Yorkshire bowlers with three for 51 from 10 overs, before Foakes holed out to long-on off the same bowler.

Amla, Tahir propel Proteas to big win
Amla's 103 was backed up by Faf du Plessis' 75 and JP Duminy's 38 not out as South Africa posted 299 for 6. As Imran Tahir 4-27 in 8.3 overs, which coincided as his eighth fourth wicket haul in One Day Cricket.

Lees fell with the total on 31, pulling Dernbach to deep square-leg, but Lyth and Jack Leaning seemed to be turning the match Yorkshire's way during a second-wicket stand of 95 in 19.

If the bitter pill of yet another one-day knockout defeat for Yorkshire was to be sweetened by anything, at least a Sangakkara master-class provided some mitigation.

Gary Ballance and Peter Handscomb added 64 in 11 before Ballance pulled a full toss from Tom Curran to Sangakkara at mid-wicket, the captain falling for 36. But Rampaul struck in the same over, accounting for Tim Bresnan while Handscomb followed a couple of overs later as Yorkshire slipped again and continued to lose wickets, and this time the damage was irrevocable as they bowed out of the competition.

Rafiq and Matthew Fisher were run out as the target became 29 off the last.
