    after seven overs An inspired change by Cosgrove did the trick as off spinner Rob Sayer took a wicket with his very first delivery by getting one through the defences of Dent 23 27b Roderick then came in and shared 105 and 124 for the second and third wickets with Klinger 50 73b and Geraint Jones 87 64b respectively The keeper played well in moving to 50 from 56 balls 6x4 in the 24 th over while Klinger registered his own half century with a maximum off the third ball of the 28 th over 72 balls 4x4 1x6 The skipper fell two deliveries after reaching his half century as Tom Wells exacted revenge by having the batsman caught down the leg side by Niall O Brien Leicestershire would have hoped the wicket would stall progress but another stand of substance developed between Roderick and Jones While the former England keeper raced to 50 from 41 balls 5x4 1x6 Roderick made steady progress hitting three fours and taking 58 deliveries to move from 50 to 100 Roderick 104 118b was then bowled by Wells as he looked to play a lap sweep but Jones and Benny Howell took the score to 300 with 13 balls of the innings remaining The duo added 42 in 25 balls before Jones who struck ten fours and two sixes in his fine innings holed out to Robson at long on from the bowling of McKay The Australian seamer then held a high return catch to dismiss Jack Taylor 0 2b to cap another good day with the ball There was also a wicket off the penultimate ball as Kieran Noema Barnett 3 3b clouted Raine to Wells at long on but Howell 28 off 17 balls smoked the last ball for six to set Leicestershire 316 to win Robson and Cosgrove got the innings off to a good start with three fours apiece in the first eight overs but the Foxes then slipped to 68 3 The skipper was caught by Taylor at cover off Miles having scored 17 Robson was caught and bowled by Smith for 27 and Ned Eckersley 13 was held by Dent at extra off Howell Ali played well in partnerships of 32 and 28 with O Brien 14 17b and Wells 18 17b but the Ireland international and the all rounder were bowled by the impressive Smith 8 0 45 3 as the Foxes struggled to 128 5 in the 28 th over Ali continued to impress with nice straight hits for six and four and Burgess also settled quickly as a much needed alliance developed A single at the start of the 37 th over took Ali to 50 from 62 balls 2x4 1x6 and all told 13 came off left arm seamer David Payne Burgess then recorded his fourth boundary a crunching drive through mid off to take the stand beyond 50 while Ali also struck a beautiful four down the ground before the over was out

    Roadshow and the Health Safety Executive would drool over our accommodation There will be further reference to the scorebox later Oh yes we have a cricket match on Lancashire resumed on 10 0 in their second innings the not out batsmen being Luis Reece and Harry Dearden Twenty wickets had fallen on day one Lancashire having made 157 in their first innings Leicestershire replying with 72 Lancashire had an overall lead of 95 runs after the flurry of bowling activity but the second day proved to be one for the batsmen as both sides lost three wickets apiece It was good to see Matt Boyce assisting in the players pre match warm up and taking the role of Lloyd Tennant s wing man staying with us throughout the day Another cloudy cool and overcast morning greeted the players as they took the field Alex Thompson having replaced the injured Will Holmes for Leicestershire Ollie Freckingham and Liam Hurt opened the attack from the Railway End and Bowling Green End respectively Freckingham bowled five overs only going for ten runs in his spell and Hurt bowled a spell of six overs for eight runs Skipper Dan Redfern rotated his bowlers throughout the morning but was unable to achieve a breakthrough Thompson Atif Sheikh Andrea Agathangelou and George Corbett were all used without success but they all stuck well to the task in hand After about half an hour of the morning session a carpenter turned up to repair the lock and door of the scorebox it having been broken into a couple of nights previously We were diligently scoring away whilst the carpenter went about his task for over 40 minutes We had wood shavings filtering down on our computers accompanied by feverish banging with an industrial sized hammer and the whirring of an electric drill whilst colourful expletives pierced the morning air It was akin to being part of Nick Knowles BBC 1 show DIY SOS Whilst all this was going on Dearden went to his 50 3x4 1x6 from 110 balls Lancashire went into lunch on 118 0 from 42 overs both batsmen playing a real grafting innings Then immediately after lunch further misfortune fell upon the Lancashire Scorer After I had eagerly digested my lunch I returned to the scorebox with one of the Umpires who required verification of over rates etc I duly obliged and the Umpires and players took the field Chris the Lancashire Scorer reappeared and could not find his glasses which he had left in the scorebox over lunch After searching high and low for them I said one of the Umpires was in here over lunch he has not picked them up has he At the end of the 2 nd over after lunch I got on the radio to the Umpire in question and he had put them in his pocket At the end of the next over a Lancashire player kindly ran onto the field to retrieve them from said Umpire

    save the other one any embarrassment he may be caused by not giving us anything Anyone would think the scorers have to mark the umpires After spending three days in the salubrious accommodation of Ashby Hastings CC scorebox I have come up with a plan for a bit of extra curriculum usage to bring in further funds to Ashby Hastings CC It could be used in I m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here As part of a Bushtucker Trial contestants could be challenged with spending eight hours a day for three days in it I must run that one past Ant Dec Atif Sheikh was not with us today The Sheikhster having been called into the squad for the game at Grace Road so after discussion and agreement between the Coaches Alex Thomson would be allowed to bat in view of the circumstances The boundary was extremely sparsely populated with spectators today as the players took the field Marilyn and Mel were however firmly entrenched soaking up the rays Even the Umpires had discarded their coats for the day and were in shirt sleeve order Leicestershire resumed on their overnight 42 3 the not out batsmen being Agathangelou 20 and nightwatchman George Corbett 0 Leicestershire needing a further 358 to win from a minimum of 96 overs a rate of 3 72 per over Corbett s 1 stint as nightwatchman was ended as he was trapped lbw by Toby Lester in the third over of the morning The day shift arrived in the form of Lewis Hill Hill 10 was dismissed shortly afterwards caught behind by Ashley Gowers off George Edwards Trialist Ben Bryant joined Agathangelou and the pair gave stout resistance to the Lancashire attack Agathangelou went to his 50 5x4 from 111 balls with the score on 109 5 and was looking in good solid form Bryant was providing solid support and the pair took County into lunch on 135 5 from 51 overs Agathangelou 67 Bryant 24 Unfortunately County were only able to add a further 38 runs after lunch before being bowled out Bryant 29 went in the 5 th over after lunch caught in the gully by Kerrigan off Lamb 3 balls later in the same over Thomson 0 was caught at 1 st slip by Liam Livingstone again off Lamb If the middle order thought they had the sauce to give Lamb a roasting they were soon thinking otherwise Harry Swindells joined Agathangelou and an amusing incident took place in front of the pavilion where the players sit Ollie Freckingham was padded up to go in next and there were two elderly gentlemen who spoke very loudly sitting near the players One chap said thinking Swindells was Freckingham that Freckingham ain t a bad player you know he has played in the first team Freckingham s head spun round and he looked towards them with an element of surprise sounds better than shock horror wondering with baited breath what was coming next

    Mark Cosgrove McKay Aadil Ali and Sayer McKay who signed a new two year deal at the club yesterday extended his terrific form into a third competition The seamer bowled the dangerous Richard Levi 4 before having Adam Rossington 0 caught at the wicket by O Brien to leave Northants in trouble Cobb and Ben Duckett got the Steelbacks back on track in mixing watchful defence with the occasional boundary and plenty of strike rotation The Foxes missed a chance to remove the in form Duckett as Sayer enticed him into a lofted sweep but the left hander fell to the very next ball of the innings The batsman who hit one four and a maximum in 30 drove high to Aadil Ali at mid off as Wells 10 0 59 1 put paid to the 80 run alliance Cobb then progressed to a responsible 68 ball fifty that included seven boundaries in the 24 th over and he and Keogh then upped the ante The duo shared 89 in the space of 15 4 overs and Cobb looked destined to make it to three figures against his former teammates But he was trapped in front by Shreck 10 0 50 2 in the 37 th over as the Foxes had a spell where they claimed six wickets for the addition of just 43 runs Although Keogh brought up his 50 from just 52 balls 5x4 in the next over from Raine he was dismissed by the all rounder in bizarre fashion two deliveries later Keogh was entitled to think that an edge may run down to third man for runs but the ball cannoned off O Brien s pads into the stumps with the batsman having taken a couple of paces down the wicket The dangerous David Willey 6 was then brilliantly caught by Cosgrove at extra cover off Sayer 10 1 46 1 in his last over It was due reward for the young spinner who had seen Crook drive a swerving four just beyond the grasp of Ali at long off at the start of the over Northants were 219 9 as Raine took a good catch at deep backward square leg off the returning Shreck to dismiss Crook 10 the equally dangerous Kleinveldt 4 was then bowled by McKay and Raine 10 0 50 2 disturbed the stumps of Zaib 16 Stone clattered 19 not out from 13 balls as he and Graeme White 9 13b added 25 from the last 19 deliveries and the young seamer then had an equally destructive effect with the ball Angus Robson 4 received a beauty that left him outside off and got an edge behind Mark Cosgrove was also held by Duckett after receiving a ball that bounced a touch and Ali was beaten by a full straight delivery that knocked out his middle stump Eckersley led a very steady recovery with O Brien after Stone s triple strike O Brien went on to lift a drive over mid
