Another fine all-round performance from Andrew McDonald saw Leicestershire to a six-wicket win over Northants in the t20 clash at Grace Road.

POST-MATCH REACTION

Northants captain Andrew Hall told BBC Radio Northampton:

"Once again we haven't scored the runs we should have and lost wickets at inappropriate times when it's halted our progress.

"But the guys keeping fighting, which is something really great.

"We know we've got no chance of making the quarter-finals but they still want to win and play well."
