Match scorecard

Samit Patel hit a 63-ball century as Nottinghamshire posted 409-7 to crush Leicestershire by 93 runs in the One-Day Cup at Grace Road.

A blistering start by Chris Nash (56) and Riki Wessels (76) set the tone and Tom Moores (76) helped the Outlaws reach 340 before the fifth wicket fell.

England bowler Jake Ball took two early wickets as the Foxes stumbled to 46-3.

Neil Dexter (45), Tom Wells (69) and Parkinson (52*) led a revival but the poor start scuppered any victory hopes.

Harry Gurney clean bowled Wells, ending with 4-58 to ensure reigning champions Notts' second win from three matches in this season's competition.
