Royal London One-day Cup Results and Reactions - April 24th 2019
Round up of the Royal London One-day cup.
Wins for Worcestershire, Derbyshire, Lancashire and Somerset all via Duckworth Lewis Method.
Derbyshire captain Billy Godleman struck a second successive century as his side secured a dramatic last-ball Royal London One-Day Cup victory against Leicestershire at Grace Road.
Godleman continued his fine form, the left-hander has now scored 306 runs in three innings, to pace Derbyshire’s pursuit with 106 from 115 balls, before he was run out in the final over to leave the contest on a knife edge.
The visitors required six from the final two balls and Leus Du Plooy guided them home pulling the penultimate delivery for four before Matt Critchley’s despairing dive at the non-striker’s end was enough to complete the winning run and a seven-wicket success.
Saqib Mahmood became the first Lancashire bowler to claim six wickets in a List A match for 21 years in a 45-run rain-affected win over Northamptonshire.
Mahmood returned a career-best six for 37 as the Steelbacks were bowled out for 269 at Emirates Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old England Lions seamer was still in nappies when his coach Glen Chapple was the last Red Rose bowler to achieve the feat and he had further reason to smile when openers Haseeb Hameed and Keaton Jennings broke the back of the chase in a 130-run stand.
Somerset continued their impressive start to the tournament with a third successive win over the previously unbeaten Sussex at Hove.
Half-centuries from James Hildreth (82), Azhar Ali (68) and Lewis Gregory (50) helped Somerset to a competitive 283 for eight on a slow wicket.
Sussex managed 62 for four in response before the rain set and ensured Somerset had to wait before their unbeaten start was confirmed by 68 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method.
Durham suffered their first defeat of the campaign by four wickets to Worcestershire Rapids on the DLS method.
A half-century partnership between Ross Whiteley and Ben Cox was enough to ensure the Rapids hauled in a revised target with 10 balls to spare.
