Double blow

Leicestershire's hopes of chasing down such a mammoth total suffered a double blow early on when they lost opener Josh Cobb and No.3 Will Jefferson inside four overs, leaving the score at 19-2.

Jacques du Toit (24) fell to a stunning catch in the deep by Liam Dawson off the bowling of Dimitri Mascarenhas, but James Taylor kept the Foxes alive with 72.

The batsman, who will captain England Lions against Sri Lanka A at Scarborough this week, combined with wicketkeeper Paul Nixon (54) to put on 108.

However, both batsman fell in quick succession to reduce the visitors to 172-5, still 102 runs short with just eight overs remaining in their innings.

Spin duo Danny Briggs (3-30) and Imran Tahir combined to snatch three late wickets between them, as the visitors finished well short on 220-9.
