Leicestershire v Australians, Grace Road

After the Australian’s giant first-innings reply of 582 for 7 declared, Leicestershire are fighting harder in the second innings: 149 without loss in the 32nd over. Sky Sports are making far too much of this – the only point worth making is the pitch must be flatter than an ironing board. It does at least making Brett Lee look even more very ordinary, with figures of 0-40 from 6 overs and, worryingly for Australia, with three no balls.

UPDATE: Rogers went on to make a double hundred, Leicestershire now 20 runs behind Australia, on 345 for 3. Brett Lee – 13 overs, 1 for 78 with 7 no balls
