Callum Ferguson stars as Worcestershire Rapids beat Leicestershire Foxes

Callum Ferguson had a debut to remember for Worcestershire Rapids as he scored 192 in a record-breaking six-wicket win over Leicestershire Foxes in the Royal London One-Day Cup at Blackfinch New Road.

The Australian batsman was drafted in by the Rapids as a replacement for compatriot Travis Head after his earlier-than-expected call-up into his country's ODI squad to face England.

Ferguson responded by smashing his runs from just 143 balls, with five sixes and 21 fours, as the table-topping Rapids overhauled Leicestershire's imposing 376 for four with 16 deliveries to spare.

Kent Spitfires maintained their qualification hopes after beating Somerset by 28 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method in a rain-ruined floodlight game in Canterbury.

Reduced to 42 overs per side after heavy morning showers, Somerset posted 221 for nine, with Lewis Gregory (60) and Matt Renshaw (56) leading the way.

However, a further deluge washed out the remaining 26 overs and confirmed Kent's third successive South Group win when they were 88 for one in reply.

Elsewhere, Surrey's clash with Sussex Sharks was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to heavy rain at The Oval.
