Will Jefferson slammed 83 from 33 balls as Leicestershire Foxes won a high-scoring Friends Provident t20 match with Derbyshire Falcons by 16 runs at Queen's Park, Chesterfield.
The 6ft 10in right-hander dispatched five fours and eight sixes during his 40-minute cameo at number three, helping the Foxes pile up 212-5 after they had opted to bat.
Derbyshire openers Loots Bosman (29) and Wes Durston (24) got their side's run chase off to a flyer with a stand of 56 inside five overs.
But Leicestershire skipper Matthew Hoggard (3-38) removed Bosman and Chesney Hughes (0) with successive balls to start a collapse that saw the Falcons pegged back at 66-4.
And despite impressive contributions from John Sadler (39) and Steffan Jones (40) further down the order, the hosts finished short on 196-8.
