Derby quarter-final for Durham

Have your say

DURHAM face a derby trip to tackle Yorkshire Vikings in the Royal London One-Day Cup quarter-finals next Thursday

The Tykes clinched top spot in Group A with last night’s comfortable six-wicket win away to Hampshire, giving Yorkshire a Headingley date with Durham on Aygust 28 (10.30am start).

Adil Rashid produced the best figures of his career in limited overs matches.

The Yorkshire leg-spinner finished with five for 33, the last four coming in 15 balls, as Hampshire were bowled out for 172 in 39 overs, with Yorkshire completing their chase with a whopping 127 balls to spare.

Derbyshire pipped Leicestershire to the fourth and last quarter-final spot thanks to a 53-run victory over Gloucestershire, sealing a derby trip to Nottinghamshire.

Billy Godleman’s 96 and a half-century from Wayne Madsen helped Derbyshire reach 271 for seven and the scoreboard pressure eventually told as Gloucestershire - who were already through to the last eight, where they will face Kent - collapsed to 218 all out.

Leicestershire, for whom Josh Cobb top-scored with 58, were effectively out of the game following a 97-run first-wicket partnership, with openers Tom Smith and Luis Reece both hitting 54, before Karl Brown’s 49 not out sealed victory for Lancashire after 30 overs.

Essex ensured a home tie against Warwickshire next week as they finished runners-up to Yorkshire following a tense four-wicket victory over Northamptonshire.

A masterful 113 off 93 balls from David Willey lifted Northants, who would have qualified for the last eight had Derbyshire and Leicestershire both lost, to 311 all out, but strong top-order contributions from Mark Pettini (88), Tom Westley (62) and Ravi Bopara (61) got Essex off to a bright start and they overhauled the target with three balls to spare.
