In the South Group, fourth place is still up for grabs.
Sussex are in the driving seat, occupying the last quarter-final berth and at home to bottom club Middlesex in their final game.
A win puts them in the last eight.
The visitors have contrived to lose 11 of their 13 T20 Blast games so far this year, but Sussex are without one of their star players from this year’s campaign.
Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has been recalled by his country ahead of their T20 series against Ireland, which begins on Monday.
The 19-year-old has taken 17 wickets for the Sharks, with his best of 3-9 coming against Glamorgan on Tuesday.
Can the Sharks get over the line without him?
In the North Group, it looks like it will be either Yorkshire or Nottinghamshire reaching the last eight of the competition.
The clubs are level on 14 points, with Yorkshire narrowly ahead of the Outlaws on net run-rate.
The fixture list has dished up a meeting between the two sides at Headingley in the final round of group games, so the winner will take the spoils and make the quarter-finals.
Birmingham Bears could still progress, but only if they beat Worcestershire and the Yorkshire v Notts game ends in a tie or

After a furious six weeks of T20 Blast action, both the North Group and South Group reach their conclusions tonight.
We’ve had first-wicket partnerships of 194 runs (between Surrey openers Jason Roy and Aaron Finch), a highest total of 250-6 (by Surrey against Kent) and two individual innings of 131 (by Finch and Birmingham’s Ian Bell) since the action began on 4 July.
Despite all those records, both Surrey and Birmingham may fail to progress from the group stage.
Six teams have already booked their places in the quarter-finals, with one place up for grabs in each group.
What more can this competition throw up this evening?
