Leicestershire's profit last season was down pounds 15,000 on the previous summer, despite winning the County Championship for the first time in 21 years. The Grace Road club made a profit of pounds 22,000 compared to just over pounds 37,000 in 1995. The main reason for the drop was a rise of pounds 171,000 in playing expenses and the club's accounts reveal they have budgeted for an extra pounds 165,000 in salaries for this season.

Yorkshire turned the tables on St Kitts by winning the second of three one-day matches at Molineaux by 116 runs to avenge an earlier five-wicket defeat. The tourists scored 214 for 9 with Richard Blakey (51) and David Byas (79) putting on 114 for the first wicket. Yorkshire bowled out their hosts for 98, with Ryan Sidebottom finishing with 4 for 9 from his eight overs.
