    purely factual with no anecdotes or joviality as a mark of respect County resumed on their overnight 39 1 with Rob Sayer 16 and Andrea Agathangelou 15 All of the first four batsmen of the day got in but then subsequently got out First to go was Sayer 17 who was caught behind by keeper Cullen off seamer Westphal Agathangelou followed soon afterwards lbw to left arm quickie Lilley Neil Pinner 22 followed shortly afterwards when he was caught at deep backward square leg by Westphal off seamer Milnes Dan Redfern 22 was the fifth wicket to fall the score on Nelson Wells 27 and Burgess 32 took County into lunch on 171 5 from 46 overs After lunch the Wells Burgess alliance flourished Burgess going to his 50 7x4 1x6 from 64 balls The pair had added 93 for the 6 th wicket when Burgess 56 came down the wicket to spinner Bruno Broughton and was stumped by Cullen Wells supported by Sam Evans went to his 50 4x4 1x6 from 120 balls a very watchful and responsible half century from the skipper Wells 51 had only added a further run when he was caught behind by Cullen off Milnes Academy player Evans meanwhile was playing a very mature innings on his debut for the Second XI Evans took 16 balls to get off the mark going on to make 9 from 46 balls before becoming another victim of the Cullen Milnes combination Freckingham was beginning to enjoy himself producing a sparkling cameo of an innings Freckingham added 23 with Evans for the eighth wicket then a further 23 for the ninth wicket with Liam Hurt 9 Freckingham had advanced to 44 from 38 balls when the new ball was taken Freckingham posted a four and then a single

    chose to bat Bullen and Henry Thompson opened up for MCCU being examined by Freckingham and Wyatt who opened the bowling for County Wyatt had a very confident caught behind against Thompson turned down with his first ball and soon afterwards survived a confident shout for a caught behind off Freckingham Thompson 1 however went quickly afterwards caught low down by Neil Pinner at first slip off Freckingham A rather lengthy free period beckoned for the undergraduate Keeper Cullen joined Bullen for what had the ingredients for a tongue twisting partnership The pair added 70 for the second wicket Bullen 35 then departing caught behind by Mike Burgess off Tom Wells Rob Sayer was introduced at the Car Park End and with the first ball of his second over trapped Cullen 42 in front This brought Azad to the wicket and he was rather fortunate to escape a run out before he had scored Sayer hitting the stumps with a direct hit square on to the wicket Azad 11 and Ellison 27 took MCCU into lunch on 126 3 from 34 overs At 2 22pm there was a fly past by a Vulcan Bomber with two small planes flying adjacent to each wing and a fifth plane bringing up the rear My initial reaction was that Dan Nice must have bought a round of drinks back in Leicester I later found out that the Vulcan was on a farewell tour of the UK before being mothballed Skipper Wells had done his homework during the lunch interval as soon afterwards Ellison 45 was expertly caught behind by Burgess diving to his right Azad had not learnt his lesson when narrowly escaping a run out by Sayer earlier as when he was on 43 Evans produced a direct hit again from square of the wicket The Umpire monitored the situation as not out Azad went to his 50 8x4 from 117 balls but still had some extra curriculum in his locker Liam Hurt produced a rapid spell during the afternoon for few runs MCCU went into Tea on 241 4 Azad 80 and Alex Martin 24 Andrea Agathangelou had a spell from the Car Park End and produced a delivery that was all Greek to Martin 26 trapping him lbw Azad 88 then departed the studious student produced a schoolboy error when having caned and swotted the majority of the bowling he hit a full toss from Avish Patel straight to Dan Redfern at mid wicket his playtime now over The MCCU Coach no doubt giving him a good talking to behind the bike sheds Then followed what can only be described as the Agathangelou show following the taking of the new ball after 80 overs This slip catching colossus although his first catch was in the gully it rolls off the tongue better pulled off three superb catches First he snaffled Broughton 20 in the gully off Freckingham the ball going like a tracer bullet Next up he held a one

    for the first time since 1998 Leicestershire captain Mark Cosgrove said It was probably the best day to bat on the wicket so it was a bit disappointing that we couldn t get a better result than we have It s frustrating The bowlers have been fantastic and you cannot fault them they have been fantastic all year But at the moment we are not getting too many partnerships and that is a problem for us We need to give the bowlers more of a break and that means batting for 120 overs rather than 50 or 60 County resumed on their overnight total of 11 0 requiring a further 314 but soon found themselves in trouble when leading scorers Angus Robson and Ned Eckersley departed off successive balls from Craig Miles Robson 6 had his off stump removed by Miles off the first ball of the 13 th over and Eckersley 0 edged the seamer to Michael Klinger at slip Opener Matthew Boyce and skipper Cosgrove dropped anchor as Leicestershire regrouped but they were dismissed in successive overs as the session wore on Unfortunately the introduction of Kieran Noema Barnett brought about the downfall of Boyce lbw for 22 off 91 balls and Cosgrove 24 off 60 was trapped leg before by Benny Howell s third ball of the innings To compound a difficult morning Greg Smith 4 edged James Fuller to Chris Dent at second slip to leave Leicestershire at 77 for 5 at lunch Keeper Lewis Hill 10 was brilliantly caught at gully by sub Miles Hammond off the bowling of Miles after the interval and that brought Ali and Ben Raine 21 off 53 together Ali making his second Championship appearance for the club led the way with Raine providing stern support until a huge slice

    Road with the sun making only an occasional flirtation with the predominately cloudy sky as the SET encounter got underway There were a commendable number of spectators present at the start having decided to forsake watching the test match on TV in preference to seeing some live action first hand The Scorers Suite certainly had an Ashes feel to it with the Warwickshire Scorer being Steve Smith and the Leicestershire Scorer going one better with the impeccable moniker of Peter Neville Johnson Freddie Coleman won the toss for Warwickshire and chose to bat first the wicket being pitched towards the Milligan Road side of the square County made steady inroads into the Warwickshire batting from the start having them 129 5 after 26 3 overs Ollie Freckingham accounted for both openers bowling Umeed 9 and then having Coleman 28 caught by Liam Hurt at mid wicket Liam Hurt replaced Freckingham at the Bennett End and had Ed Pollock 15 caught behind by Mike Burgess Alex Wyatt replaced Hurt at the Bennet End and removed Jon Webb 39 who played on and then soon after trapped Liam Banks 10 in front Hurt returned at the Bennett End and dismissed Thomason 22 superbly caught one handed by keeper Burgess diving to his left Warwickshire were now on 138 6 after 28 4 overs with all six wickets being taken by bowlers operating from the Bennett End Then followed a breezy stand of 70 between Mark Adair and keeper Pete McKay Adair 27 finally saw red and got underneath a short ball from Freckingham Andrea Agathangelou running round from mid on to take the skier in the mid wicket area McKay went to his 50 6x4 from 55 balls but George Panayi 7 was next to go lbw to the impressive Neil Pinner who was now in his second spell of miserly spin bowling Brookes 8 was ninth man out when Pinner produced a Statto and Anorak s dream having Brookes stumped off a wide A little nugget from Pinner s portfolio Pinner then reinforced his excellent figures by trapping McKay 70 in front Warwickshire being dismissed for 259 from 49 overs with nine of the ten wickets taken coming from bowlers at the Bennett End I must get out more County opened up with young prospects Kurtz and Alex Kent Kurtz has been in impressive form for the 2s this season and added to his already impressive CV with an outstanding knock The pair added 81 for the first wicket Kent not at all being overshadowed Kent road his luck at times with some swiftly scampered singles taking on the arm of the fielders It was fitting that it is the British Open this week as there was no way that Kent was going to miss the cut Kent 37 from 34 balls eventually went edging behind to McKay off Brookes Agathangelou joined Kurtz and the pair added 98 for the second wicket Kurtz going to his 50 6x4 from 72 balls

    both openers to the evergreen Shreck in closing on 54 2 from 27 overs Batting has been hard work in the match with 48 being the highest partnership so far so everything is set up nicely with Gloucestershire 57 ahead and effectively three down In today s first session Cosgrove reached a 94 ball fifty that included eight fours The left hander was 63 not out at lunch as Leicestershire who resumed on 56 3 advanced their score to 131 5 still 87 behind Offering his captain staunch support in a fourth wicket stand of 40 nightwatchman Jigar Naik 10 from 60 balls frustrated the home side for an hour on the second day before driving at Benny Howell and edging to Chris Dent at second slip Greg Smith struck four boundaries in making 20 out of a 31 run partnership with Cosgrove but was out shortly before lunch offering a return catch to Kieran Noema Barnett The Kiwi s second wicket arrived after the interval and it was the key one of Cosgrove County s captain was caught at the wicket by Gareth Roderick having made 74 of the 149 runs scored to that point Ali had batted well in putting on 29 with Cosgrove and the youngster added 38 more useful runs with Hill before the keeper was bowled by Liam Norwell for 18 The new ball was taken after 83 overs two overs before tea was scheduled and a wicket fell before the interval Craig Miles struck with his first delivery back taking a simple catch off his own bowling to dismiss Ben Raine 7 with Leicestershire still 16 in arrears on 202 Another wicket fell on that total as Fuller bowled Ali shortly after tea Clint McKay 13 then hit three fours and looked to have

    was unsurprising that Cosgrove invited Gloucestershire to bat first after calling correctly By lunch the hosts had reached 85 3 having lost their top three of Chris Dent Will Tavare and Michael Klinger to some excellent seam bowling notably by McKay who claimed two for 21 from seven overs in his first spell Dent 5 was lbw to McKay for five in the third over while Tavare 19 was caught behind by Lewis Hill off the same bowler from a delivery that left him off the seam for 15 The prize wicket of Klinger on 24 fell to Shreck who squared up the Australian and found the edge of his bat for wicket keeper Lewis Hill to take a second catch Gareth Roderick was patient in compiling 61 from 149 balls but he lost three more partners after the interval Ian Cockbain edged Raine to Angus Robson at first slip having hung around to make 5 off 49 deliveries Benny Howell 1 was caught at the wicket to become McKay s third victim while there was a first Leicestershire wicket for Cosgrove who pinned Kieran Noema Barnett 5 lbw Gloucestershire s keeper hit just four boundaries on the normally fast scoring ground and was clearly frustrated by seam movement and some swing Roderick eventually perished as he offered a low return catch to Shreck The in form Jack Taylor hit five fours in his 28 but also departed to Shreck as Matthew Boyce took a terrific catch at cover on a return to his hometown James Fuller 41 off 49 balls decided to play some shots and that move paid dividends The Kiwi struck three fours and a six as he progressed to 21 by tea Gloucestershire being 192 8 at that stage Fuller hit a further brace of fours
