Warwickshire continued their buccaneering progress in the Metro Bank One-Day Cup with a fifth successive win, by four wickets over Derbyshire at Edgbaston.

Bears completed their highest ever List A chase against Derbyshire by overhauling the visitors’ decent but far from daunting total of 247 for nine.

Half-centuries from David Lloyd (65, 92 balls) and Brooke Guest (57, 59) assured the visitors something to bowl at but the innings lacked a late charge. Olly Hannon-Dalby strengthened his place as top wicket-taker in the comp this year with four for 49 while Henry Brookes, released from Hundred duty, took three for 44.

Warwickshire then made measured progress to 248 for six (Will Rhodes 75, 95 balls) in 47.4 overs to leave Derbyshire with just one win from five games and only pride to play for in their remaining three matches.
