6.00pm: So Leicestershire leapfrog Middlesex to go fifth in Group Two, though realistically these two will finish as the bottom two in the group barring something improbable in the last couple of rounds of games. A stunning chase in the low sun by Leicestershire, and warm appreciation from the Grace Road faithful. Jon Culley's report will be available here very shortly.
