Northants opener Josh Cobb struck 86 to set up a 55-run One-Day Cup win over Leicestershire at Northampton.

Leicestershire's Ned Eckersley took the visitors to 146-4, but fell for 71 when he was caught by Cobb off Steven Crook.

The rest of the tail then folded to 189 all out as pacemen Crook and Olly Stone starred with three wickets each.

Stone ripped through Leicestershire's top order to reduce them to 7-3, before Crook picked up vital wickets in the middle order, including Niall O'Brien for 34.
