Match scorecard

Ashwell Prince and Alviro Petersen's second-wicket stand of 147 set up Lancashire's 29-run One-Day Cup win over Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl.

Prince struck 102 off 113 balls and fellow South African Petersen made 82 as the visitors piled up 301-4.

Adam Wheater's innings of 111 took Hampshire to 226-4 before he was caught in the deep off Stephen Parry.

Liam Dawson hit 52 but after he was bowled by Kyle Jarvis in the 48th over, the hosts were bowled out for 272.

Hampshire, who are third in Group A, will still qualify for the last eight if they beat Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.

Prince and Petersen - perfect partners
Ashwell Prince and Alviro Petersen have enjoyed batting together this season. In July they put on 501 for the third wicket against Glamorgan in the County Championship.

Fifth-placed Lancashire, who host Glamorgan on Wednesday, could also qualify for the quarter-finals with a win, but are likely to have to rely on net run-rate.

Prince's first century of this season's competition included nine boundaries, while Petersen struck five fours and a six in his 84-ball knock.

Wheater gave Hampshire some hope with his second one-day century but his dismissal saw their hopes fade as the last six wickets fell for 46 runs.
