Opener Finn Allen made 73 unbeaten on 51 balls as Lancashire Lightning made two out of two wins with a 16-point win over Leicestershire foxes.

Allen beat his team’s innings 172-8 and that tally proved too important for the visitors, who finished 156-5 despite Scott Steel’s 54 not being eliminated.

Jos Buttler scored 22 of 16 balls for Lancashire, who started their campaign by beating Derbyshire on Wednesday.

Lancashire Roses rivals Yorkshire Vikings also took the win with Jonny Bairstow (34) leading in goals in a six-wicket win Birmingham Bear to Emerald Headingley.

Bairstow’s shot, along with mid-order contributions including Dawid Malan (23) and Tom Kohler-Cadmore (31 points), saw Yorkshire overtake Birmingham’s 144-8 with nine balls left.

Bears had been limited by Jordan Thompson’s 3-23 after being inserted, with Sam Hain’s 59 ultimately coming in a losing cause.
