The Lancashire Lightning cruised to a 5 wicket victory over the Warwickshire Bears to kick start their Friends Provident t20 campaign which was in danger of stalling.

Set a target of 127 to win the Lightning made light work of the run chase thanks to Tom Smith who scored an excellence half century for the home side.

Paul Horton (23) and Simon Katich (17) offer support as the Lightning cruised to a comprehensive victory over the Bears.

Having won the toss the Bears lost Jonathan Trott (4) earlier on and despite excellent innings from Jim Troughton (42), Neil Carter (20) and Darren Maddy (25) a middle order collapse handed the advantage to the Lightning.
