Match Notes

  • Contrived chase comes to nothing

    The weather was the winner as Leicestershire's County Championship Division Two game against Essex at Grace Road ended in a tame draw

  • Foakes debut educates Essex

    Essex teenager Ben Foakes narrowly missed out on a century on Championship debut as their game against Leicestershire was left finely balanced

  • Westley wicket tips balance

    Tom Westley fell to the last ball of the day as Essex stumbled in their pursuit of Leicestershire's first-innings 372

  • Sarwan sends West Indies reminder

    Ramnaresh Sarwan scored his second century for Leicestershire as they made the most of winning the toss, despite David Masters' efforts
