Worcestershire opened their account in this season's Friends Life t20 competition with a five-wicket victory over Gloucestershire at New Road.
The Royals restricted their opponents to 119-9 before easily surpassing the visiting side's total with 30 balls to spare, Alexei Kervezee leading the way with an unbeaten 42.
The former Netherlands international found himself at the crease after just two balls following the dismissal of opener Thilan Samaraweera for a duck.
Moeen Ali helped add 41 for the second wicket before he fell when sweeping Tom Smith to deep square leg, while Daryl Mitchell managed just nine.
Andre Russell hit a rapid 18 only to be run out when ambling along with his bat off the ground and when Gareth Andrew (two) chipped Smith to mid-wicket, Worcestershire were 93-5.
However, Kervezee found Ben Cox an able ally, the latter completing the job with a straight six off Benny Howell to finish up unbeaten on 17.
Gloucestershire had earlier collapsed from 27 without loss to 50-4 once Jack Shantry dismissed Michael Klinger - who made a century in the reverse fixture last week - and Chris Dent with successive deliveries.
All-rounder Moeen Ali then restricted the middle order by claiming 2-14 in four economical overs that included 14 dot balls. skipper Mitchell also played a leading role with the ball, taking 3-21
Hamish Marshall was one of his victims after making a top score of 23 for the away county, who saw six players make it into double figures.
