Round-Up: Westwood makes a point to bring Warwickshire level

Ian Westwood edged a boundary off the last ball to earn Warwickshire a tie from an eventful Twenty20 Cup game against Gloucestershire at Bristol.

The visitors needed 82 off their last six overs to reach a target of 159, and almost got there thanks to Tony Frost's 53 off 33 balls.

Gloucestershire's total of 158 for 4 was built around an opening stand of 60 between Craig Spearman and Hamish Marshall, who top scored with 46.

Durham cruised to a six-wicket victory against Leicestershire at Grace Road. A fifth-wicket partnership of 52 in four overs between Dale Benkenstein and Albie Morkel saw Durham through to their second win of the week in the Northern Division.

South African all-rounder Andrew Hall was the star of the show as Northamptonshire hammered Worcestershire by 33 runs at Wantage Road.

Hall – who had hit an unbeaten 66 in Northants' 182 for 4 – took six wickets at a cost of only 21 runs in his four overs as Worcestershire slumped to 149 all out.

Northants are top of the Midlands, West & Wales Division after two victories from as many games.

Kent opener Joe Denly struck 52 from only 33 balls as they beat Surrey by 13 runs at The Oval.

Denly's half-century helped Kent to a total of 181 for 5, and Surrey never really looked like catching them as they lost wickets at regular intervals and finished on 168 for 7.

Lancashire hammered Derbyshire by 10 wickets with Mal Loye and Lou Vincent both hitting half-centuries.Earlier, Gary Keedy took four wickets and Sajid Mahmood three as the hosts were skittled for 111 inside 18 overs.

Quick-fire knocks from Will Jefferson and Adam Voges led Nottinghamshire to a four-wicket victory with four balls to spare in a 15-overs game against Yorkshire at Headingley.

The hosts amassed 141 for eight. But Jefferson blasted 40 from 19 balls and Voges took only three balls more to hit the same score as he guided Notts home.
