    15 4 48 1 shared the wickets Head Coach Andrew McDonald said There were a lot of positives but there were some crucial periods when we didn t quite execute well You look at a hundred run deficit and you can probably find more than that where we could have been better Each day you learn about the players and if we improve from here we ll hold ourselves in good stead We took 20 wickets and created more than 20 opportunities and that s a real positive when last year we averaged 13 wickets a game Ned Eckersley 37 111 balls and Angus Robson 32 hit nice strokes to pick up a boundary apiece in the opening exchanges but three wickets fell for the addition of 35 runs in the space of 8 4 overs to give Northants the impetus Azharullah removed Robson s off stump with a good delivery captain Mark Cosgrove 2 fell leg before to Stone and Neil Pinner was lbw to Azharullah who struck with his first delivery of a new spell after switching to the Bennett End Eckersley and O Brien then shared 59 for the fifth wicket to stop the Northants charge O Brien looked good off his pads and driving through the off side while Eckersley continued to grind out runs The alliance passed 50 in the 42 nd over as Eckersley tickled a four down to fine leg It sadly came to an end in the next over as Eckersley fell lbw to Kleinveldt Tom Wells 13 joined O Brien and the duo took the score to 171 5 at lunch The keeper went on to post a vital 59 ball fifty with a sixth four a terrific drive through mid on Kleinveldt then dealt Leicestershire two massive blows in an

    four overs from the Pavilion End After 13 overs the brace of Matts took the score to 62 0 Pardoe was taking the dominant role finding the ropes on six occasions during this time Boyce was far from the sleeping partner though and pulled Wainman for a colossal maximum that landed on the slated roof of the scoreboard A fragment of dust filtered down from within onto the Scorers Pardoe was first to reach his half century 9x4 from 64 balls with the score on 98 0 from 20 1 overs With the fifth ball of that same over from Ashraf the 100 partnership came up 15x4 1x6 from 127 balls Umpire Paul Baldwin was catching the eye when signalling wearing white gloves to combat the cold He must have either been moonlighting as a snooker referee the previous evening or come hot foot from a Masonic Lodge Meeting Boyce went to his 50 7x4 1x6 after 24 3 overs with the score on 117 0 Spinner Carver who had been kept on ice came on to bowl but only managed two overs before being withdrawn from the attack having been plundered for 19 runs Boyce meantime took a liking to seamer Jordan Thompson caressing him for four fours in one over Fellow spinner Craddock served up a good spell from the Pavilion End conceding few runs in a good spell The 150 partnership came up 24x4 2x6 from 169 balls after 27 5 overs County went into lunch on 185 o from 35 overs with Pardoe 97 and Boyce 83 Pardoe missing out by 3 runs on a century before lunch At the end of the morning s play I am sure the CEO and Chairman of the Third Man Appreciation society would have been tearing his her hair out with the number of runs that found the boundary in that area of yesteryear Pardoe went to a thoroughly deserved century from the 3 rd ball after lunch when he clipped seamer Matt Waite to the ropes Pardoe s 100 18x4 from 115 balls Boyce adopted a somewhat circumspect approach after lunch whilst Pardoe was taking a particular liking to Waite and the returning Ben stinker Coad his initials are BO The 200 partnership 31x4 2x6 came up after 39 2 overs Boyce was responsibly playing a good number of dot balls intermingled with the occasional boundary You got the impression he was here for the long haul Boyce joined Pardoe in three figures 15x4 2x6 from 131 balls with the score on 238 from 45 1 overs The 250 partnership came up after 46 5 overs 41x4 2x6 The partnership was broken when Pardoe had reached a magnificent 144 26x4 from 156 balls Pardoe was caught just in front of square from one out of the middle by Craddock off the bowling of Wainman Pardoe no doubt felt himself grossly unlucky but it is an impressive notch on his CV Cross dressed himself down after being padded up
