Pearson and Naik share nine wickets in draw

The match between Leeds-Bradford MCCU and Leicestershire at Weetwood ended in a heavily rain-affected draw.

County declared on 373-7 with Tom Wells moving to 71 and Jigar Naik not adding to his overnight score of 10. Wells moved to 50 from 62 balls having recorded five fours and a six in the process.

Trialist James Pearson (15-4-43-6) claimed six wickets, including a hat-trick, as Leeds-Bradford MCCU were then bowled out for 125. Jigar Naik (12-4-15-3) also ended with extremely good figures.

Pearson picked up the wicket of Chris Williams, caught behind by Lewis Hill, before later claiming his treble with the last two balls of the 7th over and the first delivery of the 8th.

Henry Thompson (20) was caught by Rob Sayer, while Christian Davis and Andy Laws were both bowled.

Naik then had Will Vanderspar (27) caught by Michael Thornely before Pearson collected another couple as Alexander MacQueen struck to Dan Redfern, and Charlie MacLeod was bowled.

Naik struck again as Daniel Young was caught by Aadil Ali before Alex Lilley was run out. There was a stand of 35 for the last wicket before the off-spinner wrapped up the innings by having Zafir Patel (22) caught by Matthew Boyce.

Other Leicestershire bowling figures were: Atif Sheikh 11-3-23-0, Thornely 5-2-10-0, Sayer 10-5-27-0.

Leicestershire progressed to 62-1 in their second innings with Ali top-scoring with 33. Thornely (22 not out) and Usman Tariq (6 not out) were at the crease when the captains shook hands.
