Australian opener Andrew McDonald hit another half century as Leicestershire comfortably beat Worcestershire.

After his 59 against Yorkshire the previous night, McDonald hit a matchwinning 53 as Leicestershire won with 15 balls to spare at New Road.

Gareth Andrew smashed an unbeaten 54 as the home side recovered from 64-6 to post 130-7.

But the visitors were always in command as they reached the target of 134-4 to win by six wickets.

McDonald topped 50 for the fifth time in the competition this season, enabling Leicestershire to tighten their grip on second place in the FL t20 North Group by beating their closest challengers.

Both sides have just four group games left, Leicestershire returning to action with a home date against Northants on Sunday (1430 BST).

Worcestershire play the same day, with a long trek to Chester-le-Street to face Durham (1430 BST).
