|Royal London One-Day Cup, Welbeck Colliery|
|Nottinghamshire 340-7: Wessels 114, Read 59, Taylor 44|
|Derbyshire 275: Slater 51, Critchley 43, Hosein 40, Gurney 3-47|
|Nottinghamshire (2 pts) won by 65 runs|
Nottinghamshire climbed to second place in the One-Day Cup northern group table with a 65-run win over neighbours Derbyshire at Welbeck Colliery.
Riki Wessels led the way with a second One-Day Cup century in five games, hitting 114 as the hosts made 340-7.
Brendan Taylor made 44, backed by some late hitting from Chris Read, who smashed 59 off 39 balls.
Former leaders Derbyshire made a gallant attempt, led by 51 from opener Ben Slater but were all out for 275.
They fall to third place ahead of their next game, at home to Lancashire on Wednesday, when Notts are scheduled to play Yorkshire at Scarborough.
Harry Gurney took three more wickets on the packed north Nottinghamshire outground to increase his season's One-Day Cup haul to 15, more than any other player.
The home side have now won eight of their last nine List A meetings with Derbyshire, but their total was comfortably their lowest in 50-over cricket this season.
It was overshadowed by their 445-8 against Northamptonshire and 415-5 against Warwickshire in the space of three days, both at Trent Bridge, in June.
In their other two matches, they were rained off against Lancashire and scored 274-5 off a rain-reduced 42 overs against Durham.
