Kieswetter ton leads Somerset to victory
Craig Kieswetter's ton helped Somerset beat Durham by eight wickets
Craig Kieswetter followed up his stunning century on Saturday with another blistering ton as Somerset thrashed Durham by eight wickets to keep alive their hopes of making the semi-finals of the Clydesdale Bank 40.
Fresh from his match-winning 152 in the LV= County Championship success over Warwickshire on Saturday, Kieswetter scored 103 as Somerset overcame Durham's 147 with almost half their 40 overs to spare at Taunton.
The England one-day wicketkeeper plundered nine fours and six sixes in his 61-ball innings as last season's runners-up climbed off the bottom of Group B with their second successive victory in the competition. Somerset were also boosted by the return of Marcus Trescothick, three months after he ruptured ankle ligaments.
There were also big wins for Middlesex and Sussex.
Middlesex climbed to the top of Group A after thrashing Gloucestershire by 10 wickets thanks to impressive knocks from openers Chris Rogers and Dawid Malan.
Sussex, meanwhile, cruised to an eight-wicket win over Northamptonshire at Arundel to consolidate their place at the top of Group C.
Warwickshire kept up the pressure on Sussex with a 60-run victory over Unicorns at Edgbaston. Darren Maddy struck an unbeaten 79 off 56 balls as Warwickshire made 228 for nine batting first and Chris Woakes (three for 30) then took three wickets in four deliveries as Unicorns were limited to 168 for seven in reply.
Also in Group C, Richard Johnson's maiden one-day half century spearheaded an impressive Derbyshire recovery that carried them to a three-wicket victory over Yorkshire with 14 balls to spare at Chesterfield.
In Group B, Nottinghamshire maintained their push for a semi-final spot with a straightforward 88-run victory over Scotland at Trent Bridge.
The Group A clash between Leicestershire and Lancashire at Grace Road saw the visitors claim a six-wicket win - their fifth triumph in seven games - which leaves them two points behind Middlesex and with three games still in hand.
