The visitors are 267-0 with Ricardo Vasconcelos on 144 and Rob Newton on 92.

They trail by 77.
Leicestershire are struggling a little at home to Worcestershire, where they’re 200-5 and trailing by 353.
Lancashire continue to build their lead against Middlesex at Lord’s where they’re 289-4 and 24 ahead.
