Scorecard

Leicestershire completed a clinical victory against Somerset, knocking them over for 148 to win convincingly by 190 runs.

Claude Henderson became Leicestershire's fourth half-centurion in the second innings, coursing to 60 not out from just 78 balls. He put on a further 76 with Darren Maddy as they rocketed to an unbroken stand of 120 before Darren Robinson called his troops in at 360 for 5. Maddy built on his overnight 60, to reach an unbeaten 81.

Then came a competent bowling exhibition from Henderson, David Masters and Ryan Cummins all grabbing three wickets each, and there was a victim for Chris Liddle, too. Masters' class knocked over the first three wickets, removing Matthew Wood, Wesley Durston and James Hildreth in quick time - and all of them lbw - to leave Somerset in early trouble at 49 for 3.

From thereon in it was a procession, Cummins the next to strike, knocking over the opener Neil Edwards for 35.
