Twenty20 Cup - North Division
Leicestershire 118-6 Innings Complete v Derbyshire 122-3
Derbyshire beat Leicestershire by 7 wkts
Leicestershire's miserable Twenty20 Cup run continued when they crashed to a seventh consecutive defeat as local rivals Derbyshire cruised to a seven-wicket win at Derby.
The Foxes were condemned to finish bottom in the North Division after another turgid batting display left the Phantoms chasing a meagre total of 118-6.
An unbeaten 42 from Wavell Hinds to follow his 2-14 and 35 from 28 balls by skipper Rikki Clarke took Derbyshire to their target with two overs to spare as the Phantoms kept their slim qualification hopes alive.
Leicestershire made two changes to the team that lost to Durham on Friday night but they never looked like registering a first victory in the competition.
Although HD Ackerman made an unbeaten 49 off 44 balls, he batted through his side's limp innings which included only 11 boundaries.
Ackerman hit six of them but the Foxes never found any momentum to put the Phantoms bowlers under pressure after they were put in on a blustery afternoon.
Although Derbyshire lost both openers in the first six overs, a one-sided contest provided little in the way of entertainment for a sparse crowd.
Greg Smith pulled Garnett Kruger to mid-off and Dominic Telo lost his off-stump pushing forward at Nadeem Malik but Hinds and Clarke quickly dashed any hopes the visitors had of turning the game round.
Hinds drove Sam Cliff for six and Clarke also hit the young seamer over the deep midwicket boundary as the third-wicket pair added 65 in nine overs.
Clarke lost his middle stump trying to hit Cliff for another six but James Pipe ended the game in style with successive fours off Jigar Naik to leave Leicestershire holding the wooden spoon.
