Sourav Ganguly's 51-ball blitzkrieg of 73 powered Northamptonshire to an 11-run victory at home ground over Worcestershire in the Twenty20 Cup match.

The former India captain also grabbed a Worcestershire wicket with his gentle medium pace to cap a fruitful outing.

Northamptonshire overcame an early jitter and got off to a flier as Ganguly (73) and Rob White (66) came up with their personal best and put together a 105-run partnership.

Ganguly brought up his half-century and the 100 partnership in style when he launched Roger Sillence into the stands.

His 51-ball knock included four towering sixes, besides seven hits to the fence before he was run out.

Graeme Hick (55) and Lou Vincent (40) led a spirited chase for Worcestershire but Monty Panesar removed both just when things threatened to go out of control and Ganguly then claimed the wicket of Ben Smith.
