Derbyshire v Leicestershire

Twenty20 Cup holders the Leicestershire Foxes were beaten by Derbyshire in a zonal Twenty20 Cup match on Friday as Luke Sutton showed nerves of steel in the closing stages.

After the Foxes had been bowled out for 137, rain hit Derby's County Ground.

When it stopped, the hosts' target was re-adjusted to 103 from 14 overs, and there was trouble early on.

But skipper Sutton (42 not out from 32 balls) and Ant Botha - who had earlier taken 2-19 - got Derbyshire home with just one ball to spare.
