Hampshire v Leicestershire, West End, 3rd day

Carberry shakes off fitness worries

Hampshire 217 for 4 (Carberry 84*) trail Leicestershire 234 by 17 runs

Michael Carberry, recalled to the England Lions squad for the match against the West Indies at Northampton next month, quietened any lurking doubts about his fitness when he no longer needed the runner he had summoned on the previous day because of the dual effects of cramp and a groin injury.

Carberry took his overnight 73 not out to 84 as rain and bad light meant only 10 overs were bowled on the third day of Hampshire's second division match with Leicestershire.

With only one day remaining the match is heading for a draw. Hampshire are 217 for 4 from 55 overs, still 17 behind the Leicestershire first-innings total of 234 all out made on the first day and some of the second.
