After having the first two days of their three-day friendly fixture with Scotland A lost to rain, both sides opted to play a 50 over a side friendly game on day 3 starting at 10.30am.
However, due to certain parts of the square still being wet the umpires delayed the start until 11.30am, and the game was reduced to 40 overs a side.
Michael Thornely won the toss for County and asked Scotland to bat under sunny skies in the tranquil surroundings of Ratcliffe College.
Scotland mustered a challenging 170 all out in 39.3 overs and their top-scorer was ex-County man Preston Mommsen with 33 (47 balls), ably supported by Michael Leask with a knock of 30 (23 balls, 2x6).
Ollie Robinson picked up 3-28 off seven overs for Leicestershire while Matthew Hoggard had excellent figures of 1-15 off eight and the other wickets were shared around.
The other bowling figures returned by County were: Alex Wyatt 6-1-18-1, Wells 5-0-32-1, Anthony Ireland 5-0-26-0, Michael Thornely 3-0-10-1 and Ben Collins 5.3-0-30-1.
There were also two run outs from direct hits. The first came from Angus Robson and a spectacular effort from Robinson followed.
County were never really at the races in their reply and had been reduced to 58-6 after 23 overs. Thornely (5), Robson (4), Harry Bush (21 from 55 balls), Tom Wells (0), Sunny Patel (11) and Robinson (3) all treaded a well worn path back to the pavilion.
Ben Raine 12 (29 balls), and Steve Bullen 20 (28 balls) offered a bit of spirited resistance with a stand of 23 for the 7th wicket but they both fell and Hoggard (0) and Ireland (9) followed to leave Wyatt 0 not out. County were all out for 99 after 32.2 overs.
The pick of the Scotland bowlers were Calvin Burnett 8-0-29-5 and Calum MacLeod 8-2-9-3 and they were supported by Gordon Goudie 6.2-1-16-1, Michael Leask 4-1-14-1, Joshua Edwards 5-1-12-0, and C Gossain 1-0-13-0.
