    sporting a bright red shirt no doubt as an effort to mix in with the locals Dan Redfern won the toss for Leicestershire and invited Nottinghamshire to bat and bat they did with much aplomb Our old friend Greg Smith opened up for Notts with Devonian Jake Libby who was to loch himself to the crease The pair put on 124 for the first wicket Smith went to his 50 from 60 balls 9x4 with the score on 102 0 from 17 1 overs but five overs later went for 60 expertly caught by Wayne White leaping to take a catch above his head at wide mid on off the bowling of Dan Hampton Libby moved to his 50 just afterwards from 60 balls 4x4 with the score on 129 1 Sam Wood had joined Libby and the pair added a blistering 130 for the second wicket Wood went to his 50 from 57 balls 5x4 with the score on 222 1 from 37 3 overs and a couple of overs later Libby posted a superb 100 from 97 balls 10x4 with the score on 241 1 from 39 1 overs Hampton then came on for a second spell at the Radcliffe Road End Hampton found his length and had a bit of a purple patch snapping up three wickets in six deliveries He bowled Libby 105 had Wood 75 well caught by White from a mini skier and then saw Dan Christian 4 caught in the deep by Eben Kurtz Christian was unable to soldier on unlike the previous batsmen Any thoughts County had of restricting Notts to a par score were shattered by Billy Root and Will Gidman the pair adding an unbroken stand of 88 in 7 3 overs Billy followed in the footsteps of brother Joe who did well in this city last week by smashing 49 from 21 balls Gidman also plundered 38 from 24 balls as Notts closed on 352 4 from their 50 overs Hampton was the only bowler to pick up wickets 4 54 from his 10 overs a great effort taking into account that 17 went from his last over Leicestershire were always well behind the asking rate Redfern 0 and Michael Burgess 5 both looked a little surprised when they were given out caught behind Luke Fletcher being responsible for arrowing a couple in at both of them Will Hale had opened up the innings and surveyed the damage from the non striker s end Hale played a hearty knock taking the pace off the ball and had progressed to 26 when he was caught in the deep by Libby off Christian to end the 50 run stand with Tom Wells The all rounder and Tom Cullen then set about rebuilding the innings and did a very good job Wells batting very responsibly was the dominant partner as the partnership progressed He stroked numerous ones and twos before cutting loose with two enormous maximums Wells went to his 50 from

    crease to fend off the Derbyshire bowling attack and that mature approach allowed his partners score quickly Valuable knocks were also provided by Andrea Agathangelou 32 Ben Raine 31 not out and Clint McKay 14 not out to ensure that the Foxes reached their target of 273 runs With Leicestershire resuming in the morning on 56 4 it needed a solid first session and O Brien and Ali provided it to weather the storm Ali was very solid in defence while partner O Brien looked equally assured and provided several offensive shots to keep the scoreboard ticking over The pair reached a 50 run partnership and continued to keep the Foxes chase alive with some really sensible batting O Brien then brought up his second 50 of the match in 77 balls with a shot that raced to the boundary The visitors tried five different bowlers in the morning to try to break the dangerous partnership that was building but a real gutsy effort from O Brien 65 and Ali 20 ensured the Foxes went in on 142 4 at lunch with 131 runs needed to win the match After lunch the Foxes batsman continued in the same way with sensible batting and brought up their 100 partnership although there was still plenty more work to do Mark Footitt broke the stand when O Brien 87 was trapped lbw and had to depart after a fantastic knock which gave his side a fighting chance The new man in Agathangelou was very positive at the crease whilst Ali continued his exemplary defensive performance in support Agathangelou edged a ball with some considerable bounce from Ben Cotton when on 18 but it just landed safe from the fielder at gully That meant he could continue to play his shots including some beautiful

    of the season whilst the other batsmen made small contributions along the way In the morning the Foxes added ten runs to the overnight score as they were bowled out for 314 First Rob Sayer 23 was removed by Tillakaratne Dilshan after edging one to Wayne Madsen at first slip and soon after McKay 18 was bowled by Mark Footitt who completed his fourth five for of the season and finished with figures of 22 2 10 53 5 The Derbyshire opening batsmen purposely went about building on their lead of 31 runs as Ben Slater and Godleman put on a strong 50 partnership All seemed to be going well for the visitors until Charlie Shreck made the breakthrough with a great delivery that just clipped the top of the stump to dislodge the bail and dismiss Slater 17 First innings hero for the visitors Madsen came in to bat at number three looking to replicate another big score However he fell just before lunch for 22 when a straight delivery from Raine broke his defences and hit the stumps The Foxes managed to claim two wickets during the morning session but Derbyshire went in to lunch 96 2 with a lead of 127 Godleman continued a confident knock and he bought up his half century just after lunch in 79 balls which included some eye catching fours in the process Experienced batsman Dilshan was supporting from the other end but lost his wicket for 15 off the bowling of Sayer who operating around the wicket enticed an edge to Robson at slip The new man in Alex Hughes continued the trend of getting in and had moved on to 28 before he tried to attack Sayer but mistimed the shot and was caught by Cosgrove at mid wicket and the spinner went on to finish with figures of 21 2 59 2 When Shiv Thakor came to the crease the Foxes were convinced they had him early The bails appeared to lift following a Raine snorter but they somehow remained on top of the stumps so leg byes were signalled when the ball reached the boundary However they did get their man just after for 10 as Raine picked up his second wicket of the match and 50 th first class wicket of the season when the batsman glanced one down the leg side to Niall O Brien Despite losing partners regularly Godleman continued to kick on and reached 89 at tea along with Harvey Hosein unbeaten on 9 leaving the visitors 212 5 in their second innings and with a lead of 243 runs McKay fired the Foxes after tea and he trapped Hosein 9 lbw with the very first ball after the batsman opted to leave a ball that was heading for the stumps Just two balls later he struck again finding the edge of the new man Tony Palladino 0 with some extra bounce the batsman being caught by Andrea Agathangelou in the slips McKay claimed

    with figures of 21 10 49 4 Antonio Palladino 18 8 43 2 was also useful for the away side in taking two wickets In the morning session Derbyshire added 25 runs before being bowled out for 345 with their captain Wayne Madsen finishing unbeaten on 172 Footitt added 13 to his overnight score to reach a best in county cricket of 34 before Charlie Shreck took his fourth wicket of the match when he removed his middle stump and finished with figures of 25 5 84 4 Soon after the final batsman Ben Cotton was dismissed by Clint McKay who cleanly bowled the tail ender and finished with the analysis of 27 8 51 3 Openers Robson and Lewis Hill went about starting their first innings but England hopeful Footitt was looking dangerous for the visitors The pressure paid off for Footitt who found the edge of Hill 5 in the seventh over and was caught by Wes Durston in the slips leaving the Foxes 11 1 at that stage The new man in Ned Eckersley looked to get Robson a single in the 10 th over but he was sent back and run out without scoring after Alex Hughes threw a direct hit from point Cosgrove joined opener Robson at the crease with the score at 15 2 and looked to rebuild the Leicestershire innings As seen with the fantastic Madsen innings you would require a slice of luck on a pitch that rewarded good bowling and Robson on 10 at the time survived a half chance catch from Billy Godleman in the slips He dived to his right one handed but couldn t cling on to the ball which subsequently raced to the boundary Robson and Cosgrove safely guided the Foxes to 70 2 at lunch with the opener bringing up his 50 with four consecutive boundaries just before the break The partnership was looking strong between the pair but u nfortunately in the second over after lunch it was broken by Footitt who found the edge of Robson and saw him caught behind by Harvey Hosein for a regulation catch With Cosgrove already settled at the crease he began to play some confident stroke shots and he was well supported at the other end by the watchful Aadil Ali However Ali 10 saw his innings ended when he was trapped lbw by Palladino who picked up his first wicket of the match and left the Foxes on 110 4 Despite the fallen wicket Cosgrove remained confident and continued to play his shots and recorded his half century in 67 balls with seven fours to his name while O Brien played a similar supporting role So well in fact that Cosgrove who remained ever so positive throughout his innings reached his hundred in just 114 balls and him and O Brien looked to be going in to tea in a strong position However after just reaching the milestone the very next ball Footitt took his next victim

    got a start but someone s got to put their hand up and go on from there and if one of the top three or four don t get a big score you re going to struggle in one day cricket The Foxes were unchanged from the side that lost to Yorkshire Vikings yesterday and the team were batting first for the first time in the competition after Cosgrove lost the toss Former Leicestershire all rounder Shiv Thakor justified Derbyshire s decision to bowl when he removed the openers in consecutive overs with Angus Robson 15 playing on as he tried to run the ball to third man and Cosgrove 10 caught behind on the drive Ned Eckersley and Aadil Ali were starting to rebuild but they both fell for 19 in quick succession as the Falcons took charge Ali chopped Cork into his stumps and Eckersley was caught by Wayne Madsen leaping at extra cover when he sliced a drive at Hughes The Foxes were struggling at 64 4 and their chances of making a competitive total were dealt a double blow in the 28th over Michael Burgess 14 tried to cut the first ball from Hughes but edged it on to his stumps and Rob Sayer 0 looped a catch to gully The last thing Leicestershire needed was a run out but that is exactly what happened when Ben Raine pushed the ball into the covers and set off for a single He was sent back by O Brien and was beaten by Scott Elstone s return O Brien played well but he was caught behind off Ben Cotton off the last ball of the 37th over and McKay 2 then missed a pull at Matt Critchley Rob Taylor struck three fours and a six in another encouraging

    a third consecutive defeat in the competition Leicestershire showed one change to the side that lost in agonising fashion to Gloucestershire last Friday as Atif Sheikh came in for Tom Wells Mark Cosgrove won the toss for the second consecutive game and again invited the opposition to bat first Yorkshire were given a solid opening by stand in captain Lees and Andy Hodd who put on 80 for the first wicket The keeper was then run out by Ned Eckersley s direct hit from mid wicket to the bowler s end as he looked to gather a single off the last ball of the 15 th over The big hitting Glenn Maxwell helped Lees to add 49 for the second wicket with 28 off 24 balls but he was caught by Aadil Ali at long on as Rob Sayer 10 0 52 1 took a wicket at the start of the 24 th over Lees moved to 50 from 76 balls 5x4 later that over and formed another useful partnership of 69 with Will Rhodes The all rounder gave impetus while Lees continued to play sensibly as the duo took their side to the cusp of 200 in the 36 th over The Foxes then hit back by claiming seven wickets for 79 runs in the final 14 3 overs Taylor 7 0 43 2 struck twice in three balls by bowling Lees 75 before having the dangerous Jack Leaning 0 caught by Robson Raine and McKay built on Taylor s good work in the closing stages Rhodes lost his middle stump to Raine 9 0 48 2 having scored a lively 51 ball 46 and the all rounder then had Adil Rashid 23 caught at mid off by Michael Burgess Tim Bresnan 20 also added some useful runs before becoming the first of three victims of McKay 10 1 47 3 The batsman was expertly taken by Ali at long off Rich Pyrah 11 was caught by Sayer at cover and Steve Patterson was bowled by the last ball of the innings Just like the Vikings the Foxes started with promise as Robson shared 49 with skipper Cosgrove 23 38 with Eckersley 14 and the highest stand of the innings with Ali Cosgrove struck four boundaries before being bowled by Matthew Fisher while Eckersley s stumps were hit by Maxwell to leave the Foxes on 87 2 in the 20 th over The opener went on to record a responsible 50 from 71 balls having hit three fours and then took the attack to Rashid by hitting a boundary in each of his first two overs Robson also struck Matthew Waite for a brace of fours in the 28 th over as he and Ali registered the 50 partnership Ali again caught the eye before edging an attempted sweep to Patterson at short third man off the bowling of Rashid in the 35 th over The Foxes suffered another couple of big blows in the 38 th over as
