12:55 AM IST: What a dramatic end to this game. Adam Finch plays a fantastic cameo and remains unbeaten on 30 off just 10 balls to help Worcestershire chase down 176 with one ball to spare. With 19 required from the last over, he hit three sixes to win his side the game by two wickets.

Chasing 176, Worcestershire lost both their openers in the first three overs. Jack Haynes along with Adam Hose led the recovery work and built a solid partnership to keep Yorkshire at bay. They put 78 between them before Hose departed on 44. Haynes looked good for his 32 before falling in the 12th over. It allowed Yorkshire to get back in the contest.

Yorkshire bowled well and kept picking wickets at regular intervals. Kashif Ali (24) and Olly Cox (26) contributed but the required run rate kept creeping up. With 19 required from the final over, Adam Finch held his nerves and played a sensational cameo. He hit Fisher for three sixes in the final over to guide his side across the line with a ball to spare. He remained unbeaten on 30 off just 10 balls to complete a memorable win for his side.

David Wiese was the pick of the bowlers for Yorkshire on his first game this season. He picked up three wickets and gave away only 18 runs in his four overs. Jordan Thompson also chipped in with a couple of scalps but was on the expensive side. They failed to hold their nerves in the final stages and as a result were unsuccessful in closing out the game.

Earlier, Yorkshire skipper Shan Masood won the toss and opted to bat first. They lost both their openers early in the innings but Masood along with Jonathan Tattersall built a solid partnership for the third wicket. They put 47 between them before Tattersall fell on 29. Masood followed him in the hut after scoring 31. Jordan Thompson played some fantastic shots and scored 36 off just 18 balls before getting dismissed.

Matthew Revis looked good at the crease and hit some lusty blows in the end to power his side to 175 at the end of their 20 overs. He scored 42 off 31 balls before falling in the last over. Patrick Brown of Worcestershire bowled beautifully and finished with figures of 3/28 in his three overs. Dillon Young Pennington and Brett D'Oliveira also chipped in with a couple of scalps each. Eventually, the game went down to the wire and Worcestershire held their nerves to emerge victorious with two wickets in hand.
