NatWest Pro40 - Division One
Worcestershire Royals 189-5 Innings Complete (S M Davies 103 no) v Lancashire Lightning 84
Worcestershire beat Lancashire by 105 runs
Worcestershire wicket-keeper Steven Davies reminded the England selectors of his undoubted quality as he smashed a brilliant unbeaten century in his side's 105-run win over Lancashire.
The 22-year-old left-hander recorded the maiden one-day hundred of his fledgling career to set the Royals on their way to a first victory of the campaign after a defeat to Nottinghamshire and a washout against Sussex.
Davies wasted no time, as he and Vikram Solanki (28) flew out of the traps after rain had reduced the Division One clash to a 25-over contest.
The Royals gloveman set off in blistering fashion on his way to an 83-ball innings of 103 that included 12 fours and three sixes, as Worcestershire totalled 189-5.
Lancashire made the worst possible start to their reply when Lou Vincent holed out to Matt Mason in the first over for just one.
The New Zealander's dismissal triggered a collapse which saw seven Lancashire wickets fall for just 48 runs.
Off-spinner Gareth Batty claimed three wickets for just two runs from three overs as Lancashire were bowled out for a meagre 84 inside 18 overs.
