Leicestershire 205 and 271 for 5 (Maddy 92, New 85) drew with West Indies A 349
West Indies A's match against Leicestershire at Grace Road petered out to a draw as the home side batted through the last day to save the game.
In fairness, there was little else Darren Maddy could do after Leicestershire conceded a first-innings lead of 144 and then slid to 51 for 3, with Darren Sammy grabbing two wickets. However, life wasn't especially testing for the batsmen as Omari Banks and Ryan Hinds, the two spinners, failed to find the right line or produce much turn.
Maddy - who is struggling to hold down a place in the Championship team - and Tom New added 162 for the fourth wicket to snuff out the tourists' chances of victory, and by the time Sammy returned to remove Maddy, the game was as good as over.
New was within sight of a maiden hundred when he fell to Dwayne Smith, and after that there were not even personal milestones to enliven the tedium.
