Worcestershire began their One-Day Cup campaign with a 50-run victory over Derbyshire at New Road.
Ross Whiteley (58), Ben Cox (56 not out) and Tom Fell (56) all made half-centuries as the hosts reached 323-6 – their second biggest total at their home ground in 50-over cricket.
Wayne Madsen’s 87 and 62 from Luis Reece kept Derbyshire in contention at 208-4 with 15 overs remaining.
But they lost three wickets in six balls before ending 273 all out.
Three Worcestershire bowlers took two wickets apiece, with Travis Head (2-48) ending Madsen’s aggressive 70-ball innings.
