Friends Provident Trophy (at New Road): Hampshire 209 (G A Lamb 84, S P Jones 5-32) v Worcestershire 211-1 (V S Solanki 81, S M Davies 76 no). Worcestershire beat Hampshire by 9 wkts.
Worcestershire seamer Simon Jones claimed five for 32 to help his side to a nine-wicket victory over Hampshire in their Friends Provident Trophy at New Road.
Jones, 29, finished with his best one-day figures which left the Hawks firmly anchored to the foot of the South/West Division table.
The Pears, facing a victory target of 210, stormed to their second successive win with a massive 22.3 overs to spare thanks to a dazzling opening partnership worth 160 in 19 overs between Vikram Solanki and Steve Davies.
Skipper Solanki led the way with a hard-hitting 81 while Davies added to Hants' agony by blazing to an undefeated 76.
Earlier, the visitors, after winning the toss, had found Jones a lively handful, particularly when he picked up his last four wickets in 11 balls for just five runs.
It easily eclipsed his previous best limited-over return of three for 19 for his former county Glamorgan against Lancashire in 2005.
Hampshire batsman Greg Lamb, who top scored with 84 including eight fours off 89 balls, was included in Jones' impressive haul which saw him finish with figures of 10-1-32-5 and restricted the visitors to 209 in 48 overs.
Jones began his impressive exploits by striking in the sixth over to remove Michael Brown thanks to a low diving catch by diving wicketkeeper Davies. Three overs later Sean Ervine went for a big hit off paceman Steve Magoffin and was well caught at mid-on by Gareth Andrew to make it a nervous start for Hants, who were forced to make four changes from their previous Trophy match against Gloucestershire at The Rose Bowl because of international calls and injury.
Australian Magoffin also removed Michael Lumb, with the aid of a running catch at point by Gareth Batty, before Hants steadily began to pep their fortunes.
Zimbabwean Lamb and Chris Benham put on 57 in nine overs before Worcestershire were able to make a further breakthrough. It came when Benham cracked spinner Batty to Andrew on the mid-wicket boundary and at the half way stage in their innings Hants were 121 for four.
Lamb, whose 50 came up off 48 balls with seven fours, added a further 51 in 11 overs with Jimmy Adams who became Worcestershire's next victim when he attempted to cut Daryl Mitchell and was snapped up by Davies.
Mitchell also accounted for Kevin Latouf before Jones began taking over centre stage with two wickets in two balls. Firstly, he had Lamb caught at deep square leg by Andrew and then followed up by ripping out Liam Dawson.
Jones finished off by ousting James Tomlinson and Billy Taylor to leave Hants with a total which Worcestershire never had any trouble overtaking thanks to Solanki and Davies.
Both completed their half centuries off 38 balls with Solanki looking destined for a deserved ton until he holed out to Dawson at long-off off Taylor after chalking up two sixes and 12 fours off 59 balls.
Davies, who finished off the job with Moeen Ali (42no), cracked 12 fours off 71 deliveries
