    players off early Leicestershire finished the day with Dan Redfern 29 not out and nightwatchman Rob Sayer unbeaten on two With the outfield unplayable in the morning the umpires called for an early lunch with play beginning at 12 40 The visitors won the toss and elected to field in overcast conditions Foxes openers Robson and Eckersley made a promising start to the innings and were unbeaten on 23 and 12 respectively before rain interrupted play and forced the players off the pitch with the score on 43 0 with just 11 overs bowled Robson on just three edged over Hamish Marshall at first slip off the bowling of Fuller but apart from that there were no noticeable chances for the visitors After both batsmen played themselves in Robson hit some eye catching strokes to the boundary but both players would have to start again after the rain delay Unfortunately it was not until 3 45 when the players returned to the pitch with 37 overs scheduled to be bowled Seamers James Fuller and Norwell both had the ball moving about after the stoppage making it very difficult for Robson and Eckersley to contend with However the openers continued to repel them with some sensible shot selections and a display of both defensive blocks and leaves The Gloucestershire attack looked threatening and had a few lbw appeals as they continued to search for the breakthrough Norwell received his reward for a dangerous looking spell by dismissing Eckersley 23 who was caught by Kieran Noema Barnett at mid wicket to break the Foxes opening partnership at 59 1 Redfern was the new man in at number three having been one of two changes to the Leicestershire side along with Rob Taylor who came in to replace Lewis Hill and the injured

    the impression that injury breakdown could be imminent whose rising delivery took the shoulder of the bat and looped over the slips for four A quick single to cover brought Hill to 50 77 balls 9x4 just before midday but a change of ends for Gleeson resulted in a double strike Firstly he induced a loose shot from Hill 55 who was caught behind trying to cut a ball that both bounced and was too close to him then in his next over Taylor 40 from 65 balls 8x4 who had seemed a touch fretful as his supply of boundary balls dried up was bowled off the bottom of the bat when he made a late decision to leave Suddenly from cruising towards parity with eight wickets in hand Leicestershire were four down and still 13 behind Redfern then allied with the newly promoted Zak Chappell in an unbroken stand off 44 both taking advantage of the occasional loose ball especially from the spinner Taylor and lunching at 167 4 After the interval what took place might be termed controlled carnage 100 were added from the first 80 balls without anything that might be termed extravagant strokeplay Deliveries were simply despatched judiciously to the boundary Redfern pulled the opening bowlers for three sixes to the shorter side with Chappell twice finding the same stands Cover driven fours abounded as the bowlers over compensated Redfern s 50 came from 65 balls with a six and 7 fours and 45 minutes later he reached 100 from 102 balls with a 12th four pulling the spinner Taylor along the floor to deep square leg This uncharacteristic use of the carpet with his beloved pull shot may have been partly attributable to the fact that he should have been caught from it off Chambers six runs earlier but Taylor spilled the straightforward chance at long leg Chappell s 50 82 balls 5x4 3x6 came in the over after this chance with the second of his pulled sixes his third overall the other being an imperious strike over long off from the occasional off spin of Thurston Another such strike came from the seam bowling of Claydon in the next over and resulted in a five minute delay The ball was damaged landing on the concrete of the tunnel leading to the car park and it took some time to locate a replacement Over confidence then brought about Chappell s demise for 62 He carted the first ball of Claydon s next over for four with what could best be described as a straight legged almost straight batted whip slog over mid wicket but was bowled by the next attempting something similar possibly slightly more agricultural The partnership had yielded 175 in 190 balls with seven sixes and 19 fours Bizarrely this was the first of three wickets in three overs to fall to the seventh and eighth bowlers Munsey s first delivery was a filthy leg side loosener but Redfern somehow contrived to get

    Wells took Patel to 50 from an even 100 balls but a successful first hour for Leicestershire was rounded out by two strikes in quick succession by Rob Taylor Keeping a full length had seen Thurston 14 twice drive him to the ropes but he eventually induced the false shot and the edge was comfortably pouched by the ever dependable Andrea Agathangelou at second slip In his next over Taylor found the inside edge to bowl Munsey 4 The remainder of the morning session belonged to Northants as Patel looking ever more in control moved to 79 164 balls with new partner Plater emerging from a dogged start 2 off 29 to reach 37 from 69 at lunch the total now a healthy 204 3 The afternoon session started well for Leicestershire Patel had moved to 89 when a backward defensive shot to Oldfield s off spin bounced slowly back on to his stumps and with ominous heavy cloud around Wells found some late inswing He clean bowled with full length deliveries both Plater 39 Claydon 12 The wicket keeper Khawaja drove tinnily but effectively through extra cover a couple of times He was joined in a quick partnership of 35 by Taylor whose run a ball 24 ended when he aimed at Jigar Naik a sweep too many for umpire White s liking Khawaja pulled a Naik delivery over the short boundary at mid wicket to move to 32 as rain began to fall The players left the field for 15 minutes with the score on 292 7 in the 78th over Naik missed a difficult diving chance to catch Chambers at slip off Oldfield in the subsequent 5 minutes of play before further rain brought about an early tea at 303 7 Khawaja 36 Chambers 8 The same pattern seemed to be emerging at the start of the final session the new ball bringing two early strikes for Leicestershire Firstly Chambers 16 having just played Maddock beautifully off his hip through mid wicket for four aimed an over confident drive at the next ball which was not full enough for the stroke and nicked behind Then 13 balls later Atif Sheikh with his radar slightly better calibrated than with the first new ball drew Khawaja 45 on to the front foot to chase one he should have left alone Hill again taking the straightforward catch From this point the script began to differ There ensued one of those periods of play loved by all cricket spectators except those with an affiliation to the fielding side a 16 over last wicket partnership It began inauspiciously with multiple balls passing the bat most notably one from Sheikh whose radar this timed honed in precisely to the box worn by Gleeson splitting from it a sizeable piece of plastic A 5 minute delay followed for its replacement and for its owner to be able to breathe comfortably again 22 of Gleeson s first 29 runs came to the vacant third man

    high point of the pre lunch session which ended at 24 2 Boundaries rained in the first few overs after lunch as the previously immaculate Gleeson 3 3 0 1 at the interval got a little too full in length Agathangelou struck him imperiously over mid off for 4 before being adjudged LBW in Dawborn s first over pushing half forward the score having reached 65 Taylor hit the first change bowler Spencer out of the attack with four imposing off side boundaries off front and back foot before the recalled Gleeson proved there was still plenty in the pitch The seamer produced a fabulous delivery which bounced and left him squaring him right up Unfortunately for the bowler it was also good enough to defeat Akhil Patel s firm footed attempt at the catch at first slip He managed only to knock it on for four Taylor s 11th and the first not cleanly struck in a 50 from 64 balls A subsequent extra cover drive off Dawborn bordered on the contemptuous Redfern uppercut Dawborn for the 12th four in a 50 partnership from just 48 balls Not to be outdone in the boundary fest Redfern s own 50 from 50 balls included 12 well struck fours all around the wicket In just the 38th over Taylor s hundred and the 200 came up simultaneously with his 22nd four an effortless push through cover from his off spinning namesake only for Redfern to depart for 73 off 71 15x4 in the next over with a chip to mid wicket off Dawborn The partnership had yielded 143 in just over 21 overs with 29 fours Oldfield got a gift of a leg stump half volley to get underway with a two to long leg next ball then pulled a four from the spinner whose line and length reflected that of the Northants attack as a whole not consistent enough Gleeson was brought back for what proved to be the last over before tea and struck twice Oldfield slightly unfortunate in being caught behind glancing down the leg side Wells was then pinned LBW second ball by one which appeared to cut back 219 5 at tea Taylor on 106 Michael Burgess began the evening session with a fine cover driven boundary only for the elements to again intervene early in the next over much to the relief of Taylor who facing Gleeson had just taken his first ball of the session square in the box A comedic moment ensued as the groundstaff s tractor refused to start so the pitch remained uncovered during a brief squall By the time they got hold of a tarpaulin as back up the rain had stopped 4 overs lost Taylor s innings ended on 111 138 balls four overs after the resumption bowled by a full inswinger from Gleeson which left only one stump standing Gleeson and Dawborn had been the most consistent of the Northants bowlers and now combined to quickly bring about
