Centuries by Hampshire left-handers Jimmy Adams and Michael Carberry turned the Clydesdale Bank 40 formbook upside down at Edgbaston. After five straight wins, Warwickshire surrendered their 100% record in a crushing 130-run defeat by a side who had lost their first four games in Group C.

With Carberry setting the pace in a 64-ball dash to three figures, Hampshire piled up 341 for 6 - the highest total conceded by Warwickshire in 40-over cricket - and then bowled out the home side for 211 in the 32nd over.

Boyd Rankin's bowling figures of 2 for 32 in four overs hid the scale of Warwickshire's hammering. He might normally have been happy to dismiss the opening pair - except that his wickets were 331 runs apart.

Michael Lumb's first county innings since winning the ICC World Twenty20 with England ended with a catch at point from Rankin's second ball but Adams stayed until the last over when he was bowled for 131.

A head-up swing across the line with two balls to go was entirely forgivable. The former British Universities captain sensibly allowed Carberry to lead the initial charge and then set his own agenda in accelerating to his first one-day hundred in 85 balls.

After a relatively modest start, Hampshire lit the turbocharger as Carberry crashed eight fours and a six in a sequence of 12 deliveries from Rankin, Neil Carter and Keith Barker. The partnership with Adams built up to 168 in 19.5 overs before Carberry holed out at deep mid-wicket after making 82 of his 103 in boundaries.

Sean Ervine made his first contribution in a fine all-round display with 48 from 29 balls before he was stumped off Ian Westwood and Adams' onslaught included nine fours and four sixes, two of which landed in the construction site for the new pavilion.

When Warwickshire began their run-chase, Jonathan Trott's half-century gave them a glimmer of hope. The England batsman shared a stand of 47 with Carter (20), but wickets began to fall regularly after they had reached 100 in the 12th over.

Ian Bell played beautifully for 41 from 24 balls, only to get out to a premeditated shot, lapping to Carberry at short fine leg for Ervine's first success in a spell of 4 for 39. The medium-pacer also had Trott caught at long on for 60 and left arm spinner Rangana Herath (two for 28) applied further pressure as Warwickshire lost for the first time in 17 games in 40-over competitions.
