Lancashire won a thrilling Roses contest against Yorkshire by a single run to clinch their first win of the Royal London One-Day Cup tournament.

Yorkshire number 11 Josh Poysden was tasked, for the second time as many games, with trying to hit the winning runs from the final ball but could manage only a single to cue Lancashire celebrations.

Yorkshire had been forced to settle for a tie two days ago at Warwickshire, when Poysden scrambled a bye, and have now split their opening three games with a win, tie and a defeat.
Steven Croft’s 97 helped Lancashire post 311 for six before Yorkshire opener Tom Kohler-Cadmore similarly paced the hosts’ chase with 97 of his own while the in-form Gary Balance struck 72.

Yorkshire needed 16 from the final over from 22-year-old paceman Saqib Mahmood, who promptly conceded three boundaries from his first four deliveries, but Yorkshire’s tail could hardly lay a bat on him thereafter to decide the contest.

Glamorgan fell agonisingly two runs short of completing an unlikely comeback at Cardiff after they had been reduced to 21 for five against Somerset.

Half-centuries from David Lloyd and Graham Wagg turned the contest, after Somerset had relied on an unbroken 46-run final-wicket partnership between Craig Overton and Josh Davey to eke out 261 for nine.

Overton and Davey then ripped through the hosts’ top order but their heroics were almost upstaged by Glamorgan’s last-wicket pair Lukas Carey and Timm van der Gugten, who put on 57, only for Carey to fall to a juggled catch off Roelof van der Merwe.
Phil Salt’s maiden List A century powered Sussex to a seven-wicket win over last season’s beaten finalists, Kent, who have now lost their opening three matches.

Matt Renshaw struck 109 as Kent were dismissed for 298, which was never enough as opener Salt blasted 131 from 105 balls with support from Harry Finch (89).

Lewis Hill smashed a 54-ball century and all-rounder Colin Ackermann hit an unbeaten 152 and claimed three wickets as Leicestershire bounced back from consecutive defeats with a 38-run win against one of the tournament favourites Worcestershire.

Worcestershire crashed to 24 for four in reply at Grace Road, but Ross Whitely ensured Leicestershire were made to sweat for their first-up win with 131 from 83 balls.

Luke Fletcher claimed his first five-wicket haul in one-day cricket as Notts Outlaws defeated Derbyshire by six wickets to make it back-to-back wins to begin their campaign.

Billy Godleman hit a ton for Derbyshire in their 297 for eight but the visitors got home with 29 balls to spare after former Derbyshire opener Ben Slater hit 83 to set up the chase.

West Indies captain Jason Holder inspired Northamptonshire to their first win of the tournament as they emphatically cast aside Warwickshire by 195 runs at Wantage Road.

Holder hit unbeaten 60, from 31 balls, as Northants post 358 for six before the all-rounder’s three wickets helped bowl Warwickshire out for 164.

Middlesex cruised to a six-wicket win at Lord’s against Gloucestershire thanks to Steve Eskinazi’s first century in one-day cricket. Eskinazi shared a 184-run partnership with Nick Gubbins who finished unbeaten on 98.
