Yorkshire v Lancashire

Lancashire opened their Twenty20 Cup campaign with a five-wicket victory over Roses rivals Yorkshire.

Left-hander Phil Jaques smashed 72 off 40 balls as Yorkshire managed 165 for seven at Headingley.

But it was not enough, Mal Loye cruising past the 50 mark (59) and Brad Hodge contributing and unbeaten 64 as the visitors cruised home against their northern rivals.

Surrey enjoyed a comfortable night’s work against Kent, winning by seven wickets with four overs to spare.

Kent laboured to 140 despite Martin van Jaarsveld reaching a half century.

And they were punished for their lack of aggression when Surrey came to the crease, James Benning making 66.

Derbyshire also eased into the new 20-over campaign with a six-wicket victory against Durham.

Durham scored 130 for seven at Derby after being put into bat by the home side.

And James Bryant was the chief threat in reply as he reached 53 not out and Jon Moss hit 46 to bolster his side’s score.

Hodge, who captained Leicestershire to the title last season, hit an unbeaten 64 from 45 balls to take the Lightning to a target of 166 in 17 overs.

Mal Loye, who made 59 from 33, shared in a second-wicket stand of 83.

Yorkshire looked to have set a defendable total of 165-7, with their Aussie batsman Phil Jaques clubbing 72.
