Worcestershire Rapids extended their 100 per cent record to the start of Blast as they claimed a six-wicket win over Derbyshire Falcons in a low-scoring match at Derby.
Having been put in to bat, Billy Slater (33), Gary Wilson (28) and Anuj Dal (35) were the only batsmen to make double figures as the hosts struggled to 135-9.
A run-a-ball 65 from Martin Guptill set up the visitors chase as Ben Cox (13 not out) and Ross Whiteley (9 not out) guided them home with 10 balls spare. SCORECARD
Unbeaten half-centuries from Ian Bell and Adam Hose saw Birmingham Bears cruise to an eight-wicket win over Yorkshire Vikings at Edgbaston.
Gary Ballance had struck 79 off just 49 balls, hitting six fours and four sixes in his innings but failed to get much support from his teammates as the visitors managed 157-7 from their 20 overs.
Bell shared an opening stand of 55 with Ed Pollock and brought up his half-century off 40 balls but it was Hose who fired the hosts home, launching Jack Brooks for a six to bring up his fifty and seal the win. SCORECARD
In another low-scoring match at Old Trafford, an unbeaten 64 from Alex Davies saw Lancashire Lightning to an eight-wicket victory over Northamptonshire Steelbacks.
Although Richard Levi smacked 40 off 21 balls, when the Steelbacks opener was caught-and-bowled by Jordon Clark the visitors' innings fell apart - with Seekkuge Prasanna the only other player to make over 10 as they struggled to 123-9.
In reply, Prasanna had Liam Livingstone caught behind off the fourth ball of the innings but Davies hit eight fours and a six to help the hosts home in 16.1 overs. SCORECARD
Nottinghamshire Outlaws earned a 19-run win over Leicestershire Foxes after Tom Moores and Samit Patel shared a 97-run third-wicket partnership.

Cameron Delport (33) and Neil Dexter (43) got the Foxes off to a good start, sharing a 51-run opening stand but once former was bowled by Luke Fletcher and Ish Sodhi had Dexter caught, the hosts were unable to catch up with the run rate. SCORECARD
A brilliant knock of 88 from Luke Wright helped Sussex Sharks win their second successive match in the Blast as they overcame Glamorgan by eight wickets in Cardiff.

Michael Hogan had Phil Salt caught behind for seven, but Wright and Laurie Evans (65 not out) shared a 123-run second-wicket stand to ensure the away side maintained their unbeaten start to the competition. SCORECARD
Gloucestershire captain Michael Klinger's 65 led his side to a simple six-wicket win over Middlesex at Uxbridge.

A century second-wicket partnership between Daniel Bell-Drummond (58) and Heino Kuhn (67 not out) saw Kent pick up their second win as they picked up an eight-wicket victory over Somerset.
