Leicestershire won the toss and decided to bat, at Edgbaston, this morning, in their One-Day Cup tie against Warwickshire.

Leicestershire 207 (Mark Cosgrove 60, Colin Ackermann 57; Olly Stone 3-44, Aaron Thomason 3-45)

Warwickshire 211-1 (Jonathan Trott 102*, Sam Hain 69*)

Result: Warwickshire won by 9 wickets

Warwickshire boosted their chances of qualifying for the One-Day Cup knockout stages with a thumping nine-wicket win against Leicestershire at Edgbaston.

However, they were bowled out for a lowly 207, with the Warwickshire bowlers Olly Stone (3-44) and Aaron Thomason (3-45) in fine form. Mark Cosgrove (60) and Colin Ackermann (57) were the mainstay of the Leicestershire innings.

In reply, Warwickshire’s Jonathan Trott (102*) hit his second century (on the trot) and Sam Hain (69*) had a 159 second wicket partnership in their total of 211-1 and a 9 wicket win.

Leicestershire slumped to their sixth defeat in the One Day Cup this year and, by contrast, Warwickshire could have booked themselves a place in the Quarter Finals, depending on other results.
