Friends Provident Trophy - Group A
Worcestershire 209-8 Innings Complete (D K H Mitchell 59, M M Ali 58) v Nottinghamshire 211-6 (M A Wagh 52)
Nottinghamshire beat Worcestershire by 4 wkts
Mark Wagh's half-century helped Nottinghamshire return to the top of Group A in the Friends Provident Trophy with a four-wicket victory over Worcestershire Royals.
The Outlaws opener led the way with 52 - his third half-century in four innings in the competition this season - before a seventh-wicket partnership of 61 between Paul Franks and Adam Voges (35 not out) secured the win after a mid-innings collapse.
Franks completed the match in style, hitting Moeen Ali for a six and a four to finish unbeaten on 37 as the hosts successfully chased down their target of 210, with four wickets still intact.
After losing the toss and being put in, Worcestershire lost top-order batsmen Vikram Solanki, Steven Davies and Stephen Moore cheaply and never really recovered.
Captain Solanki was first to go for six, losing his middle-stump to an off-cutter from Andre Adams, who accounted for Moore in his next over with the right-hander chopping the ball on to his stumps for a duck.
Dangerman Davies, who had hit a match-winning 82 not out in the reverse fixture at New Road earlier in the week, was then bowled by Franks for 21 as the visitors slumped to 42 for three.
Ali and Ben Smith pushed the score past 100 before Smith chipped a simple return catch to Samit Patel, and Ali departed soon after posting his 50 driving to deep cover.
Daryl Mitchell also contributed a half-century off 49 balls before being caught in the covers in the final over after Gareth Batty was defeated by a Luke Fletcher slower ball and Ian Fisher edged Mark Ealham behind.
Nottinghamshire suffered an early setback when opener Ali Brown miscued a hook to point at the start of the reply, but youngster Alex Hales injected some early momentum before top-edging a Chris Whelan delivery to midwicket.
With the hosts well ahead of the run-rate, though, Wagh and Patel could afford to play themselves in before the opener went in unfortunate circumstances when Mitchell deflected Patel's straight drive on to the stumps to leave him stranded out of his ground.
Patel threw his wicket away the very next ball, driving to Solanki at mid-off, and the jitters seemed to have set in when Will Jefferson and Chris Read also both fell cheaply.
But Voges and Franks showed admirable coolness under pressure to guide the hosts home with 33 balls to spare.
