George Dobell at Leicestershire (238) v Essex (400-8).
Morning from Leicester. It’s a heavily overcast morning here and there has been some rain overnight. But we’re underway on time and Essex have timed their acceleration perfectly to claim full batting bonus points with a quick single from the final ball of the 110th over. Graham Napier took seven from the over in total and they have scored 32 this morning from seven overs. From 68 for 5 that is a fine effort. The ball continues to move around quite sharply. Charlie Shreck has produced a couple of beautiful deliveries, one to beat Napier’s outside edge and two to take the edge of the bat and skip away to the third man boundary.
