Lancashire won the toss and decided to bat at the County Ground, Northampton, in their Royal London One Day Cup match today.

Lancashire 279-8 (50 overs): Dane Vilas 83*, Keaton Jennings 69, Alex Davies 59)

Northamptonshire 282-8 (Richard Levi 90, Josh Cobb 57, Luke Procter 43*)

Result - Northants won by two wickets

Keaton Jennings 69 and Alex Davies 59 put on a century opening partnership, to get Lancashire off to good start off 18 overs. However, Lancashire did not capitalize on this solid platform and although Dane Vilas hit an unbeaten 83, no one was able to stay with him to get the total over the 300 mark, to give Northamptonshire an above par score to chase.

Having said that, Northamptonshire nearly made a hash of the chase, but managed to scamper in with one ball to spare! Richard Levi 90, Josh Cobb 57 and Luke Procter 43*all putting in good performances with the bat and giving the home side their second win on the bounce.
