Friends Provident Trophy - Midlands Division
Leicestershire 147-7 Innings Complete v Nottinghamshire 47-3
Leicestershire beat Nottinghamshire by 13 runs (D/L Method)
Leicestershire Foxes reached the quarter-finals of the FP Trophy with a 13-run victory in a rain-affected match against Nottinghamshire Outlaws at Oakham School.
Nottinghamshire finished at 47-3 chasing a revised target of 61 from 12 overs - the ending was played out in pouring rain on a day of that featured several lengthy interruptions for the weather.
The result ensures both teams progress to the last eight - Leicestershire finish top of the Midlands Division and will entertain Essex in the quarter-finals, while Nottinghamshire - whose superior run rate puts them through at Northamptonshire's expense - travel to holders Durham.
Leicestershire had been asked to bat and - in an innings reduced to 35 overs after twice being halted by heavy showers - reached a total of 147-7.
South African pair Hylton Ackerman (37) and Boeta Dippenaar (33) led the way during a second-wicket alliance of 63 before Notts spin duo Graeme Swann (3-23) and Samit Patel (3-32) pegged back the final total by sharing six wickets.
The Outlaws initially set off in pursuit of a revised Duckworth/Lewis target of 148 in 27 overs and had reached 35-1 off 10.2 overs when the rain returned.
At that stage Leicestershire were ahead on the D/L calculation but the game did not resume until an hour later when the target had been re-adjusted to 61 off 12 overs.
This meant Nottinghamshire had to score 26 off 10 balls for victory but they lost Mark Wagh (11) when he was run out for the first ball back and then Adam Voges (5) was stumped off left-arm spinner Claude Henderson (1-9). The Outlaws needed 23 off the last over but fell well short.
