Match scorecard

Lancashire moved top of the FL t20 North Group with a routine 25-run victory against Durham at Old Trafford.

Karl Brown got the home side off to a strong start, hitting 62 from 42 balls, his highest score in the format.

The hosts ended on 170-5, a total that never looked in danger once Kabir Ali (3-30) had removed both Durham openers.

Scott Borthwick's valiant knock of 62 from 51 deliveries kept Durham in the hunt but the visitors could only muster 145-5 from their 20 overs.

Lancashire have won their last three group matches, while Durham's hopes of qualification appear slim with four fixtures remaining.
