2022-09-21 17:32:53


Leicestershire 273 for 9 (Swindells 67, Scriven 65) path Middlesex 297 (Simpson 92, Eskinazi 64, Higgins 53, Finan 5-58) by 24 runs

Leicestershire recovered from 66 for 5 to 273 for 9 in reply to Middlesex’s 297 on day two of their LV= Insurance coverage County Championship match, a day when ending locations in Division Two seemed rather less clear-cut than that they had earlier than the present, penultimate spherical of matches started.

With Nottinghamshire 27 factors clear earlier than play started on Tuesday, Middlesex have been extra involved with profitable the race for the second promotion spot however the Trent Bridge facet’s troubles at New Highway might but deliver the title again into play if Tim Murtagh’s workforce can conjure a win right here.

But that is perhaps much less easy than it seemed after they had winless Leicestershire seemingly on the ropes at lunch just for Harry Swindells (67) and Tom Scriven (65) to rescue the bottom-of-the-table workforce with a stand of 125 for the sixth wicket earlier than a gutsy unbeaten 31 from Ed Barnes helped shut the deficit to 24 runs.

The morning was dismal for Leicestershire, though it had began with a joyful second after Michael Finan, their lately acquired new team-mate, took two wickets in his first over to report his maiden five-wicket haul in solely his third first-class match.

In claiming figures of 5 for 58, the 26-year-old left-arm fast completed off the Middlesex tail because the promotion-chasers have been bowled out for 3 runs wanting what is perhaps an essential third batting level.

Leicestershire raised a couple of eyebrows after they handed Finan a two-year contract earlier than seeing him play in a senior match however he’s already growing stamina and management to go along with his tempo and seemed a menace in every of his 18 overs right here. He led his team-mates off the sector, carrying a broad smile as he held the ball aloft.

By lunch, although, the environment within the residence dressing room would have been markedly completely different. The Middlesex complete, constructed round John Simpson’s affected person 92 on day one, was already wanting formidable as Leicestershire slumped to 5 down.

With Hassan Azad and Rishi Patel disregarded for lack of type and main scorer Wiaan Mulder again in South Africa, the 18-year-old rookie all-rounder Rehan Ahmed was required to bat at 5. It seemed a fairly skinny line-up.

Within the occasion, Ahmed made 26 off 56 balls earlier than an injudicious swipe noticed him bowled by fellow leg-spinner Luke Hollman’s considerably unthreatening opening supply, but he’d completed higher than the 4 earlier than him.

Sol Budinger went within the second over for seven, slicing Toby Roland-Jones for 3 after which 4 earlier than edging to second slip to a visual send-off from the Middlesex seamer. Louis Kimber was bowled off an inside edge by a swinging ball from the ageless Murtagh.

Sam Evans was bowled by a ball from Ethan Bamber that squared him up and nipped away to clip off stump. A full, straight one from Roland-Jones was too good for Colin Ackermann, who was leg earlier than.

But by tea Leicestershire have been in a a lot more healthy place, having negotiated a 38-over center session with out dropping one other wicket as Scriven – in solely his fourth first-class match – and Swindells guided them to 184 for 5, with the specter of a follow-on averted.

The sixth-wicket pair have been impressively disciplined and slender escapes have been saved to a minimal. Scriven handed fifty for the primary time in a first-class match for Leicestershire, reaching the milestone from 97 balls with a dab into the off facet for one which additionally took the partnership to a few figures. Swindells’s half-century got here off 133 balls simply earlier than tea.

Scriven fell seven balls into the ultimate session for 65 as Murtagh discovered the sting. However Barnes helped add one other 39 earlier than Swindells was undone when Hollman made one rear up by some means and take the glove or shoulder of the bat to loop to second slip, the place Steve Eskinazi plucked it out of the air one-handed.

By the point the brand new ball was taken, Finan had come and gone, caught at third slip off Roland-Jones, however skipper Callum Parkinson helped Barnes add one other 28 for the ninth wicket earlier than the latter was lbw to Bamber.
