Yorkshire 311 for 4 (Wood 111, Harvey 69, Jaques 48, McGrath 68) beat Surrey 291 (Brown 89, White 4-14) by 43 runs
Scorecard

The battle of the big hitters on a batsman-friendly Oval track, with a short boundary for good measure, was finally won by Yorkshire, but it took three quick wickets from Craig White to check Surrey's charge. Ally Brown, with 89 from 46 balls, was looking set to lead Surrey home when he was yorked by White, Yorkshire's seventh bowler, and needing 74 off the last 12 overs, Surrey slid from 261 for 5 to 263 for 8 in three overs. Yorkshire had got off to a flier, reaching 111 for 0 off 15 overs, and never looked back. Matthew Wood made 111 off 127 balls, Ian Harvey provided the fireworks with 69 - his fifty came off 35 balls - and Anthony McGrath completed the assault with 48 off 23 balls.

Durham 85 for 3 beat Leicestershire 175 for 8 (Maddy 50, Ackerman 44) by 9 runs (D/L method)
Scorecard

Darren Maddy's half-century gave Leicestershire some hope against Durham at Grace Road as they struggled to 175 for 8 after seemingly being in charge as they reached 109 for 2 in the 27th over. As the clouds gathered, Duckworth-Lewis was always going to be a factor, and Nicky Peng's 36 injected enough pace into the Durham innings to ensure than when the rain came, they were just about ahead. If they had lost one more wicket then Leicestershire would have been the winners.

Derbyshire 197 for 8 (Moss 79, Sutton 46) v Kent 9 for 0 - Match abandoned
Scorecard

Jonathan Moss stood firm amid a clatter of wickets to help lift Derbyshire to a competitive 197 for 8 from their 45 overs. Derbyshire were in some trouble at 74 for 4 after four of the top five failed to get into double figures, but Moss remained rooted and shot 79 from 81 balls. Luke Sutton provided some support with 46 before rain spoiled the party before Kent's reply had really begun.

Somerset 254 for 5 (Burns 106, Parsons 51, Hildreth 54) v Warwickshire - Match abandoned
Scorecard

Somerset and Warwickshire shared the points after their match at Edgbaston was rained off. Somerset had batted themselves into a commanding position, with Mike Burns striking 106 against the county he left nine years ago. Keith Parsons (51) and James Hildreth (54) each added half-centuries, but all their hard work was for nothing when the rains came.
