    s 4 stumps Dan Hodgson 7 was next to go caught at mid on by Ali from the second ball of Jigar Naik s spell from the Pavilion End Opener Jon Tattersall was finding the ropes on regular occasions and began to forge a dangerous looking partnership with Pyrah However Tattersall 42 became the first of four victims for Taylor when he was caught at mid off by Ali Yorkshire now being 76 3 after 21 overs Ben Ainsley 10 was then all at sea when going lbw to Zak Chappell Pyrah went to his half century 3x4 from 76 balls with the score on 126 4 from 33 1 Matthew Waite was forming a good alliance with Pyrah the pair scoring somewhat liberally They had added 55 when the dangerous Pyrah 69 became Taylor s second victim caught by Ali his third catch of the innings Taylor then bowled Waite 44 with the score on 221 from 47 4 overs and Tom Craddock 2 with the score on 238 from 49 2 Towards the end of the innings there was a Leicester City managerial feel to the bowling Pearson at one end and Taylor at the other Yorkshire closed on 242 7 with Jordan Thompson 42 not out from 30 balls Matt Pardoe and Matt Boyce opened up for County and had added 15 when Boyce 6 was caught at cover by Tattersall from one he struck firmly off the middle of the bat off Ashraf Lewis Hill joined Pardoe but was caught behind by keeper Hodgson off seamer Moin Ashraf when he had made 12 leaving County on 40 2 from 8 5 overs Pardoe was looking very comfortable and was keeping the scoreboard ticking over If the scoreboard was ticking over it very nearly exploded shortly afterwards when Ali clubbed five consecutive boundaries in Pyrah s first over Pyrah was the victim of some serious pyrotechnics from Ali This put County on 70 2 from 11 overs with Ali picking up where he left off in the Second XI Friendly against Nottinghamshire on his home ground of Kibworth last week Soon afterwards Ali launched Carver for a huge maximum over long on that disappeared out of the ground taking the sparkle out of Carver and leaving him feeling a little flat Not to be outdone the solid Pardoe clouted Craddock for a further maximum Pardoe cruised to his 50 6x4 1x6 from 48 balls with the score on 119 2 from 18 5 overs Ali joined him shortly afterwards bringing up his 50 7x4 1x6 from 44 balls with the score on 129 2 from 22 3 overs The partnership had added 104 when Pardoe 62 was caught behind by Dan Hodgson off the returning Pyrah The ex Worcestershire man delivered the goods to put County in the driving seat Matt Cross joined Ali and batted beautifully initially in a supporting role to Ali Ali finally went for a superb 87 when he was very well caught

    were still plenty of positives to come from the day and the visitors only hold a slender lead of 51 into the third day so it promises to be an intriguing third day at Grace Road Leicestershire resumed on 102 1 in reply to Northants first innings score of 251 Robson and Eckersley had a watchful start against some probing bowling before Robson drove consecutive boundaries in the sixth over of the morning Eckersley then collected a pair of beautiful fours through extra and mid on in the next over and Robson found the fence twice in the 34 th over as the stand moved past 50 The duo got the team beyond the first hour but Northants then claimed five wickets for the addition of 37 runs Robson edged Willey to Stephen Peters at first slip and Eckersley 28 nicked Olly Stone to Alex Wakely in the cordon After an encouraging start by the team Cosgrove and Pinner started their alliance without a run between them which is never an ideal situation Number five Pinner fell in the most unfortunate fashion dragging a full Willey delivery onto leg stump and Cosgrove was then bowled by a jaffa from Stone Again it meant that two batsmen were together without scoring this time Niall O Brien and Tom Wells Keeper O Brien 9 hit a couple of boundaries before feathering the returning Azharullah to Adam Rossington on the stroke of lunch so Leicestershire went in on 177 6 Wells 18 and Raine recorded the first batting point after the break before Wells edged Stone who had just replaced Willey to Rossington Raine and McKay then shared a lively alliance to ensure that Leicestershire gained a first innings advantage McKay was particularly strong between extra cover and mid off and Raine also showed intent When the left hander nudged a four down to third man it had a triple impact recording the 50 stand the second batting point and moving Leicestershire into the lead The Australian smashed a four and six down the ground when Josh Cobb entered the attack and Raine drilled Azharullah through mid wicket for another four as the runs kept flowing McKay looked set for a debut half century before Willey held a catch at long on off Cobb and Raine who scored ten off the first three deliveries of Azharullah s 21 st over also fell three shy of 50 after being bowled by the seamer s next ball The innings was concluded in the first over of the new ball as Shreck 0 was caught at mid wicket by Richard Levi off Rory Kleinveldt Tea was taken at that point in proceedings so there was a long final session of 38 overs Peters hit three successive fours in the fourth over and Levi offered useful support as Northants got stuck in The in form Raine then entered the attack from the Bennett End and bowled another inspired spell There was a chance in the 15 th

    Jordan Rollings opened the attack for County and with the naked eye it appeared that neither of them had passed the seven foot mark in height overnight After 12 overs of the day James Sykes replaced Rollings at the Field End In the next over County picked up a wicket when Wyatt trapped Jamie New 21 lbw We then had Wyatt bowling to Marshall there must be a cowboy story in there somewhere Readers of a certain age will recall Wyatt Earp a Marshall in the Wild West Soon afterwards Dan Redfern replaced Wyatt at the Pavilion End then Aadil Ali replaced Sykes at the Field End It transpired that Ali was to bowl a solitary over so as Redfern and Sykes could change ends With the 5 th ball of his solitary over Ali had Connor Marshall 3 lbw This however would not be Ali s only contribution to the day s play Sykes and Redfern continued to twirl away before Rob Taylor replaced Sykes Adam Tillcock having gone to his second half century of the match 3x4 from 94 balls Notts went into Lunch on 217 6 from 68 overs with Tillcock 56 and Luke Wood 24 Notts had a quick dart for 4 overs after lunch losing Wood 24 caught at slip by Matt Cross from the second ball after lunch delivered by Taylor Notts declared their innings on 254 7 with Tillcock 70 and Paul Franks 23 Mention must be made of Wyatt who had bowled 32 overs in the match for a miserly 70 runs picking up 5 wickets County were set 293 to win in a minimum of 58 overs and Redfern and Matt Boyce opened the innings The duo laid a foundation taking the score to 56 before Redfern 31 was stumped by New when coming down the wicket to Tillcock The pair had seen off the new ball threat of Brett Hutton and Wood with the first wicket going down after 12 1 overs Meanwhile another spinner Matt Carter wheeling away from the Field End was bowling a considerable number of dot balls intermingled with occasional boundaries Boyce and Matt Cross had taken the score to 111 from 28 5 overs when Cross 26 was caught by behind by Jamie New off Hutton Ali joined Boyce who moved to his half century 6x4 1x6 from 77 balls with the score on 112 2 from 29 2 overs Soon afterwards with the score on 134 from 34 4 overs Boyce 56 had a go at a short ball from Hutton that flew to keeper New who safely gloved the catch Then came the stand of the match at the critical moment Ali s driving along the floor and over the top had the power of a Formula 1 car He powered six colossal maximums in an eight over blitz and Hill s cutting was more brutal than a Chancellor on Budget Day Personally I was so pleased for these two young prospects as

    Jacques Rudolph Earlier in the day Leicestershire were looking for quick wickets to keep the visitors under pressure but Colin Ingram and Chris Cooke had other ideas They played well against Charlie Shreck and Tom Wells in the opening 40 minutes A change from skipper Cosgrove worked a treat as Ollie Freckingham struck with his first ball Ingram nicking through to Niall O Brien for 17 Mark Wallace then reached a notable landmark progressing to 10 000 first class career runs when he gathered his seventh run of the innings But the keeper fell after the addition of a further single O Brien taking his fourth of the innings this time off Ben Raine Cooke and Graham Wagg steadied the ship and the former moved to a 95 ball 50 5x4 before lunch Cooke nicked Wells just wide of slip in the penultimate over of the morning session and the 50 stand was registered in the last over When the players went for their meal Glamorgan were 155 5 which represented an advantage of 224 Cooke and Wagg went for their shots after lunch and paid the price The stand moved to 75 before the former fell for 81 held by Shreck running round from mid off off the bowling of Raine A second wicket fell with the score on 179 as Wagg edged Freckingham and a tumbling O Brien claimed his fifth catch of the innings to take his match tally to nine Suddenly things had become interesting but Glamorgan decided that attack was the best form of defence Craig Meschede hit Shreck for two consecutive fours and then took 18 off four successive deliveries from Wells before Glamorgan called time on their innings The Somerset loanee ended on a bright 33 not out with David Lloyd 15 Bowling

    is all to play for at Grace Road Andy Carter and Craig Meschede who claimed seven wickets between them bowled superbly early on the third morning Glamorgan were rewarded with the wicket of Robson who was bowled by Meschede for 83 Eckersley and Cosgrove each played a nice stroke through the leg side to record boundaries to settle the team down Dean Cosker entered the equation early on and he bowled for most of the day Cosgrove took the attack to the spinner using his feet nicely to drive a four down the ground Eckersley continued to accumulate in a cultured fashion and recorded a ninth first class century with his 15 th four a tickle down to fine leg from the 178 th ball received The stroke also recorded a second batting point and the duo went on to register the 50 partnership Both players looked comfortable at the wicket so it was somewhat of a surprise when Cosgrove was out on the stroke of lunch bowled by one that cut back sharply by David Lloyd The score was 296 3 at lunch with Eckersley 119 and Pinner four not out There was an early blow after the break as Pinner was bowled by Cosker with what proved to be the final delivery before the new ball was taken O Brien s first boundary was a beautiful cover drive off Carter before Cosker had an over with the new cherry Duties were then handed to Meschede and Eckersley greeted his introduction by pulling and cutting the fence O Brien played a number of flowing drives as the stand passed 50 and the fourth batting point was banked shortly afterwards But the return of the lively Meschede caused problems as Eckersley and Wells 0 both edged the seamer to Cosker
