    couple of bouncers the second of which was hit down Jigar Naik s throat at deep square leg Shreck went perilously close to his second five for in as many matches as Davies edged to the left of O Brien the stumper just failing to hang on to a one handed diving effort The left hander went on to record a more than useful unbeaten 47 and Chris Tremlett 19 and Matt Dunn 9 offering useful late order support before being bowled and caught behind off Raine respectively That left County an awkward 35 minutes before lunch and there was the worst possible start as Dunn trapped Matthew Boyce leg before with the first ball of the innings Robson was dropped in the slips off Tremlett 11 3 27 1 in the next over but responded in some style driving Dunn 8 2 34 1 through mid on before cutting Curran to the fence in the lunch over Robson and Eckersley played well to take the team to the interval on 26 1 from nine overs but Leicestershire suffered three big blows in the space of the first two overs after the break Tremlett bowled Robson 14 while Curran had Mark Cosgrove 5 caught at slip by Ben Foakes off the shoulder of the bat before pinning Andrea Agathangelou 0 lbw The seamer almost had a third scalp when O Brien edged but Wilson couldn t hold on after diving to his left O Brien then clipped a couple of fours off his pads as a stand of 45 developed with Eckersley Curran ended Eckersley s stay after an intelligent period of bowling The bowler had previously gone past the outside edge of Eckersley 32 a couple of times through swing and then clipped the stumps with one that held

    35 0 and the team got off to a flying start as nine runs came off the first over from Boyce including a clipped four down to fine leg off the first ball of the morning Robson then cut to the fence and the 50 stand was registered before Boyce swivelled to find the boundary again Robson struck another quartet of fours including three down to the third man boundary as he registered a 58 ball 50 It was Robson s fourth successive fine knock following scores of 120 and 71 at Essex in the last LV CC game and a half century against New Zealand on Saturday The batsman then sent a couple of rasping drives to the cover boundary the second of which took the opening stand into three figures Leicestershire were going great guns but a bowling change at the Pavilion End completely changed the complexion of the game Burke 6 1 19 4 struck with his first ball in the competition as Boyce gloved a short ball down the leg side to keeper Gary Wilson Although Robson cut the 12 th four of his innings off Burke he was then bowled by the skiddy seamer s next delivery at the end of the 27 th over Leicestershire then lost a third wicket inside four overs as captain Mark Cosgrove 4 was trapped leg before by Dunn Eckersley who previously got off the mark with a beautiful stroke through mid wicket struck another fine drive to the cover boundary as lunch approached but a fourth wicket went down on the stroke of the interval Andrea Agathangelou 7 nicked the returning Chris Tremlett towards Steve Davies at third slip and although the ball bounced from his grasp it went to his left at a perfect height for Rory Burns County went in on 155 4 with Eckersley on 22 and Niall O Brien still to get off the mark The lively Curran 17 5 3 39 4 had bowled well without luck in the first session but gained his reward after the interval O Brien 7 edged to Dominic Sibley at third slip while Ben Raine 5 and Rob Taylor 0 nicked consecutive deliveries to Wilson The all rounder also trapped Charlie Shreck 0 leg before with Burke claiming two wickets in an over inbetween The former Somerset all rounder got one through the defences of Eckersley who had battled extremely hard in getting to 34 and then pinned Jigar Naik 2 lbw It was pushing on for 3pm when Surrey started their second innings with a lead of 71 but there were still 54 overs remaining in the day Surrey adopted a positive approach but although several boundaries arrived the visitors lost their top three before tea Burns 14 was expertly taken low down by Agathangelou at second slip off McKay Ansari 25 went lbw to Shreck and Kumar Sangakkara 20 edged Taylor to a diving O Brien It was a deserved success for the left arm

    and Jason Roy made a well organised 74 in three hours and 41 minutes at the crease while Curran struck eight fours and two sixes in a belligerent career best 60 off 74 balls Wickets were shared between Leicestershire s attack with Ben Raine 14 1 5 33 3 the most successful bowler and Angus Robson and Matthew Boyce then guided County to 35 0 at stumps County showed two changes to the side that won at Essex as Niall O Brien and Rob Taylor returned for Lewis Hill and Tom Wells Clint McKay 19 6 57 2 and Charlie Shreck 25 8 66 2 moved the ball about in the early exchanges but Surrey s openers had put on an unbroken 186 in the last LV CC game against Lancashire and they continued their good form There were four boundaries apiece as Burns and Ansari recorded the 50 stand within the first hour Cosgrove turned to Jigar Naik as the clock struck midday and he and Raine kept a lid on proceedings Raine sent down five maidens out of six overs and the building pressure led to a quick double burst of wickets late in the session The left arm seam of Taylor 13 4 37 1 trapped Burns 39 leg before and Ansari fell in the same manner to Shreck with the score still on 82 this time after offering no stroke There was also a loud appeal as Kumar Sangakkara was rapped on the pads in the lunch over by Shreck but he survived and Surrey went in on 83 2 Leicestershire s seamers were outstanding in the afternoon session as although Sibley held firm wickets tumbled at the other end Sangakkara was posed plenty of problems by Taylor immediately after lunch but the ball kept beating the edge rather than finding it McKay then capitalised on his teammate s good work by enticing Sangakkara into a drive Andrea Agathangelou snapping up the opportunity at second slip It was the first of five wickets for 17 runs in the space of 31 deliveries The dangerous Steve Davies 0 was leg before to Raine and the seamer then had Ben Foakes 4 brilliantly held one handed by Niall O Brien diving down the leg side in his next over McKay had a big appeal for lbw against Gary Wilson 3 before getting his man in identical fashion next ball and Shreck then produced a beauty as debutant James Burke 0 edged through to O Brien Surrey were now in real bother but a vital partnership of contrasting styles developed Curran opted to take the attack back to the bowlers hitting a quintet of flowing drives to the fence and also completing an all run four as he raced to 36 not out Sibley got his head down to progress to an unbeaten 38 and the stand passed 50 in the tea over as Surrey went in on 191 7 Curran continued to be aggressive in the evening session

    Robson anchors Leicestershire victory Leicestershire CCC opener Angus Robson produced another terrific performance as Leicestershire beat Essex by six wickets to claim 21 points in the LV County Championship Robson followed up his superb 120 in the first innings with another masterful display at Chelmsford this time hitting 71 that took his side to within sight of the winning post County went on to reach their 163 target on the stroke of lunch when Lewis Hill forced left arm spinner Aron Nijjar into the covers for the winning single Hill 18 not out was part of an unbroken stand of 46 with debutant Andrea Agathangelou who struck an attractive composed unbeaten 42 off just 41 deliveries The visitors had started the day requiring 108 more runs with all wickets intact and their opponents needing to take quick wickets if they were to stand any chance of victory But Robson and Boyce quickly ended such hopes as they scored at a run a minute during the first half hour Boyce was caught low down at slip by Nick Browne off Jesse Ryder for 24 after the pair had shared a vital opening partnership of 87 Young seamer Porter breached the defences of Ned Eckersley 3 and captain Mark Cosgrove 2 and then claimed the wicket of Robson who was caught down the leg side by James Foster It was part of a burst where Porter took three wickets for the cost of 11 runs in the space of 25 balls Leicestershire were not going to be denied as Agathangelou and Hill took Porter s pressure off with a fine counter attack Agathangelou found the boundary on seven occasions while Hill s knock included a huge six against Nijjar before taking the single which had his colleagues celebrating on the balcony Leicestershire
