Leicestershire had no answer to an opening burst from Jack Brooks

The seamer took five for 21 to single-handedly leave Leicestershire reeling on 38 for five and although they recovered to 113 for nine it was an insufficient total to unduly worry Yorkshire, who reached their target with seven wickets and 19 balls to spare.

Victory for the home side, for whom Dan Hodgson made 52 from 46 balls, lifted them off the foot of the North Division table and boosted their chances off qualifying for the quarter-finals but it left Leicestershire with only two points from five matches at the half-way stage of their programme.
