Yorkshire moved to the top of Group A of the One-Day Cup with a six-wicket win over Worcestershire at Headingley.

After Daryl Mitchell made 33 for the visitors, Tim Bresnan (4-28) played a major part in reducing them to 85-8.

Adil Rashid took 3-21, before Joe Leach (43 not out) and Mitchell McClenaghan (16) put on 39 for the 10th wicket to push Worcestershire to 141 all out.

Kane Williamson scored 43 but fell to McClenaghan (3-57), as Yorkshire won with more than 19 overs to spare.

With Worcestershire being dismissed short of their 50 overs, Yorkshire faced 10 overs before lunch and eased to 38-1, with McClenaghan getting rid of Tuesday night's centurion Alex Lees for three.

Yorkshire had a minor wobble where they slipped from 55-1 to 100-4, before Jack Leaning (20 not out) and Adil Rashid (27 not out) guided the hosts to their third victory in the competition this season.

Yorkshire all-rounder Tim Bresnan:

"It was definitely a pitch worth bowling first on. There was a bit in it with a 10:30 start and it did it all game, but we got the best out of it with our seam attack.

"I thought we all bowled pretty well with our seam attack, with Jack Brooks and myself up top and Matthew Fisher backing us up really well - followed by Adil Rashid and Richard Pyrah.

"I feel to have got my old zip back. You have spells when you feel in good rhythm and I suppose I am in the middle of one of those spells."

BBC Radio Leeds' Dave Callaghan:

"Yorkshire's impressive recent form in the One-Day Cup continues. Tim Bresnan and Adil Rashid destroyed Worcestershire, who were bowled out for 141.

"They were never in trouble when they replied, although some wickets went down.

"Kane Williamson with 43 and Andrew Gale's quickfire 29 helped see Yorkshire home with nearly 20 overs to spare."
