Joshua Cobb and Greg Smith help Leicestershire chase down huge total
Sunday 26 May 2013
Opening pair Joshua Cobb and Greg Smith struck brilliant centuries at Grace Road as Leicestershire chased down a target of 324 to stun Somerset in the Yorkshire Bank 40.
Somerset had looked set to record a fourth successive victory after Peter Trego (118), Alviro Petersen (63 not out) and Marcus Trescothick (57) led them to 323 for 3. But Cobb made 130 off 87 balls while Smith finished unbeaten on 135 as the hosts won by six wickets.
Elsewhere in Group C, Gloucestershire beat Unicorns by 29 runs at Bristol. Nottinghamshire saw off Holland by 89 runs for their fifth straight victory in Group A. Sussex and Northamptonshire were also victorious. In Group B, Derbyshire saw off Scotland by six wickets in Edinburgh. Scotland made 182 for 9, but the visitors rarely looked in danger after Chesney Hughes (74) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (54) put on 120 for the first wicket in reply.
