Yorkshire’s hopes of a NatWest T20 Blast quarter-final suffered a hit as they lost at Leicestershire by four wickets.
Tom Kohler-Cadmore (75 off 40 balls) and Shaun Marsh (60 off 44) thrashed 82 runs for the second wicket as Vikings, , posted 182-5, Adil Rashid (26no off 17) putting on 50 with Marsh at the end of the innings.
Tim Bresnan, who claimed three wickets and a run-out in the final over against Lancashire en route to figures of 6-19, was unable to defend seven runs from his last over on Saturday, Mat Pillans drilling the winning boundary as Leicester triumphed with two balls to spare.
Luke Ronchi (57 off 27) thrashed a 19-ball fifty for Leicestershire up top – the New Zealander hitting seven fours and three maximums – while Colin Ackermann struck an unbeaten 58 from 47 deliveries.
Kohler-Cadmore’s first half-century for Yorkshire since his mid-season switch from Worcestershire contained 12 fours and two sixes and came after Adam Lyth (one) was dismissed in the first over – David Willey (nine) and Sarfraz Ahmed (two) also falling cheaply for the visitors.
Kohler-Cadmore and Willey took catches in the field and Liam Plunkett scooped three wickets but fifth-placed Leicestershire prevailed to move level on 13 points with third-placed Yorkshire in the North Group.
Yorkshire have one game remaining, at home to Northamptonshire, while Leicestershire have two, at home to Derbyshire and at Nottinghamshire.
