LONDON, Saturday: Worcestershire seamer Wayne Parnell took 5-25 to help beat Yorkshire by 150 runs and knock them out of the One-Day Cup with a group match to spare.

Earlier George Rhodes (106) and Ben Cox (87) shared a 169-run stand to inspire the home side’s recovery from 62-4. They eventually posted 293-7 and it proved far too much for Yorkshire.

The visitors’ chase started well, but was derailed by three quick wickets from Parnell, who returned to take the final two in successive deliveries.

Warwickshire won a thrilling run-chase against Lancashire to leave the Red Rose’s hopes of reaching the Knockout stages out of their hands.

Two rain delays left Warwicks with a revised target of 255 in 45 overs after Lancashire had earlier made 277-7 in their full allocation. Sam Hain (84 not out) and Alex Mellor (30 not out) got them home by five wickets with three balls to spare.

James Anderson’s impressive spell of 3-21 in nine overs looked set to give Lancashire the win that would have guaranteed them a knockout stage place in their final group game. But now they will have to wait for other results to unfold on Monday, particularly fourth-placed Durham’s visit to Yorkshire.

A Rob Keogh century provided the platform for Northamptonshire to beat Leicestershire by 29 runs.

Keogh (102) and Ben Curran (69) put on 156 for the fifth wicket as Northants made 290-6 at Grace Road.

Leicestershire were on the back foot at 15-2 in reply and struggled to form partnerships in their chase of 291.

Nathan Buck (3-44) led the way with the ball while Ben Sanderson and Luke Procter claimed two wickets apiece as the Foxes fell short on 261-9.
