Five star Lungley stars for Phantoms

Chris Rogers and Tom Lungley starred as Derbyshire cantered to an eight-wicket victory over Leicestershire in the Twenty20 Cup at Grace Road.

Batting first, Leicestershire were restricted to just 127-9, with Lungley picking up 5-27.

The visitors then reached their target in 19 overs, with captain Rogers making 58 and Greg Smith 47 not out.

The result is Derbyshire's second victory in as many games, while Leicestershire are still without a win.

After the Foxes won the toss, it needed a third-wicket partnership of 49 between James Taylor (40) and Paul Nixon (25) to rescue them from 28-3.

Lungley's figures are a county best for Derbyshire in the Twenty20 Cup, while Rogers' second half-century in this season's competition is his highest score in the shortest form of the game.
