Division One

Worcestershire held on for a nine-run victory against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge after the home side nearly turned the match on its head. Graeme Hick's 81-ball 93 propelled Worcestershire to 225 then Kabir Ali and Doug Bollinger reduced Nottinghamshire to 46 for 5. However, David Hussey (75) and Chirs Read (59) added 118 for the sixth wicket to keep hopes alive. But Ali returned to remove Hussey and claimed two more tail-end scalps for his five-wicket haul and send Worcestershire top of the table.

Division Two

Somerset notched their first Pro40 win of the season with a 32-run success against Derbyshire at Taunton. Charl Willoughby's three wickets blew away Derbyshire's top order and when Ian Blackwell bowled Simon Katich (34), to break a stand of 59 with Michael Dighton, Somerset had the result under control. A solid batting display led them to 251, as Marcus Trescothick (56) and Justin Langer (59) struck rapid half-centuries on the high-scoring ground.

Eoin Morgan and Jamie Dalrymple produced a well-paced chase as Middlesex won the London derby against Surrey at Lord's. Morgan fell four short of a century, but shared a match-winning stand of 129 with Dalrymple, who completed the win with an unbeaten 54 and 10 balls to spare. Owais Shah, waiting to find out if he makes England's one-day squads on Monday, steadied the innings with a 51-ball 50 after both openers fell early. Surrey's innings was based around a series of useful innings - Mark Butcher top-scoring with 50 - but although the top eight all reached double figures no one went on to produce a major innings.
