Yorkshire survived a superb 129 from Lancashire's Karl Brown to start their Royal London One-Day Cup Group A campaign with an entertaining 47-run win at Emirates Old Trafford.

Half-centuries for Kane Williamson and Alex Lees were the main features of Yorkshire's imposing 324 for seven on a true pitch, their best ever total against Lancashire in all List A cricket, after Andrew Gale had elected to bat.

Lancashire then slipped to 57 for three in the 15th over of their reply before Brown smashed a career-best 129 off 99 balls, including nine fours and four sixes.

When he departed to leave the score at 250 for six in the 43rd over, the home innings subsided to 277 all out in the 47th. Tim Bresnan and Adil Rashid took two wickets each and there were three run-outs.

Derbyshire bounced back from their miserable Twenty20 campaign by thrashing Hampshire by 136 runs on a record-breaking day at Derby.

Centuries from Wes Durston and skipper Wayne Madsen carried Derbyshire to 340 for five, their highest one-day total against another first-class county, and although Hampshire started well, they collapsed to the spin of David Wainwright and were bowled out for 204 with 15.4 overs remaining.

Durston, who made his best one-day score of 134 from 129 balls, shared Derbyshire's highest third-wicket stand in limited-overs cricket of 222 in 36 overs with Madsen who scored 138 off 127 balls, his maiden one-day hundred.

Openers Jim Allenby and Jacques Rudolph scored half-centuries to help Glamorgan to a comfortable seven-wicket win over Middlesex at Cardiff.

After Glamorgan had put Middlesex in to bat, they restricted the opposition to 174 for eight in their 50 overs with Michael Hogan and David Lloyd, playing his first 50-over match, claiming three wickets apiece.

Middlesex were given some hope after being reduced to 90 for eight with an unbeaten 84-run partnership between Neil Dexter (43) and Steven Finn (42) in nearly 25 overs.

But in-form Glamorgan carried on their form from Friday night when they confirmed their place in the NatWest T20 Blast quarter-finals with an eight-wicket win over Gloucestershire.
