Match scorecard

Captain Chris Read guided North Group leaders Nottinghamshire to a six-wicket victory over Yorkshire in the t20 clash at Headingley.

Yorkshire skipper Andrew Gale (62 from 55 balls) and Jonny Bairstow (41no) lead with the bat as the home team reached 152-5 from 20 overs.

Openers Tamim Iqbal (47) and Alex Hales (24) gave the visitors a solid start.

Read (26no) and Scott Elstone (21no) ensured there were no alarms as Notts reached their target in 18.1 overs.

With a two-point lead and a game in hand over Leicestershire in second, Notts are now almost certain to secure a home quarter-final in the competition.

Yorkshire's chances of reaching the quarter-finals are virtually extinguished.
