D'Arcy Shorts 42 proved futile when Durham collapsed

Worcestershire took second place in the Vitality Blast North group with a dramatic victory over Durham in Emirates Riverside in three runs.

Pat Brown held his nerve for the final when Durham, who dropped nine from 79 without losing 109 to five for five, failed to overtake the 117 of the Rapids for eight.

Brown's dismissal of Durham captain Stuart Poynter with three remaining balls as the target dropped to six turned out to be critical.

Brown ended with two for 21, while Daryl Mitchell won two for 17, including Durham top scorer D'Arcy Short's key-wicket (42) as the hosts ended with 114 for six.

Leicestershire's good run continued as they clinched a third consecutive victory with a comprehensive 55-round win over Derbyshire in the County Ground.

Mark Cosgrove was 38 when the foxes posted 149 for seven out of their 20 overs. Captain Colin Ackermann added a valuable 28.

Derbyshire fought in response and was never competing after falling six to 24. But they finally fought their way through 94 in the 19th.

Ackermann and Gavin Griffiths each claimed three doors.

The southern group leadership, Sussex, collapsed with a defeat of 26 against Surrey at Kia Oval.

Ollie Pope (48) and Sam Curran (47) scored the majority of runs in Surrey's 163 for eight.

The sharks started to respond positively but lost their last five wickets for only 10 runs.

David Wiese remained undefeated on 31, while Imran Tahir and Tom Curran ended with three goals each.
