Leicestershire's match with Northamptonshire finished in a draw as heavy showers hit the County Ground on the final afternoon. Having resumed on 142-3 in their first innings Leicestershire were 238-6 when rain drove the players from the field for what proved the final time shortly before the scheduled tea interval. The County had batted solidly in the morning. Joe Burns was bowled by Andrew Hall for 77 but Matthew Boyce and Michael Thornely ensured there would be no dramatic collapse. They added 77 runs either side of rain breaks for the fifth wicket, Thornely eventually caught behind for 46. Rob Taylor followed to Steven Crook's next delivery to leave the County on 236-6 but the weather ensured there was precious little time for either side to pick up more bonus points, Boyce closing unbeaten on 40.
