Leicestershire v Durham

Hylton Ackerman hit 56 off 40 balls to help holders Leicestershire Foxes to a tense Twenty20 Cup victory over Durham Dynamos at Grace Road.

The Foxes finished on 150 for nine while Durham fell just short of the target after closing on 147 for five.

Jeremy Snape scuppered Durham's progress by claiming three wickets for 24 runs in his four overs.

The Dynamos were left needing 16 off the final over from Ottis Gibson to win, but they could manage only 13.

Durham now face a tough task to qualify from the group having now lost their first two matches in the competition.
