The three-day tour game has ended in a draw. Lot’s of positive for the Indian batsmen, but the bowlers were not so impressive. India would be happy to have tried out all their players in this match.
Ishant Sharma finally has something to cheer about. The right-arm pacer has got rid of the in-form Dan Redfern, who is out after scoring a quickfire 58. Ravichandran Ashwin takes the catch. One delivery later, he gets rid of Tom Wells.
OUT! D Redfern c Ashwin b Ishant 58(55), T Wells c Rohit b Ishant 0(2)
Robson and Smith have retired out and Dan Redfern and Michael Thornely have taken charge of the proceedings. Redfern has been the aggressive one so far with a quickfire half-century, reaching 53 not out off 50 balls with nine fours and one six. Leicestershire now only 12 runs behind.
Greg Smith has completed his century as well, as Leicestershire have gained complete command over proceedings at Grace Road. The two batsmen have added 221 runs for the second wicket so far.
Leicestershire are cruising at the moment. They now trail by only 112 runs and they have nine wickets in hand. India would be hoping that their bowlers have had a good run in this match. Robson and Smith have played well so far on this day.
Brilliant century by Angus Robson! What a day he has had! With 20 boundaries off 103 balls, he has completed his century and has led Leicestershire’s reply against the Indians.
Greg Smith has completed his half-century and Robson is close to complete his century. These two batsman are flourishing against the Indians, who have not created much of an impact today. Bit of worry for MS Dhoni as Ishant Sharma was plundered for as many as 41 runs off his four overs. Leicestershire now trail by 177 runs.
Play has resumed at Grace Road. Angus Robson has completed his half-century and Leicestershire are progressing smoothly without much trouble. Robson has been very impressive on this day, completing his fifty with 13 boundaries.

Rain has stopped play at the Grace Road. Leicestershire were 71 for one after 13 overs.

Angus Robson and Greg Smith have done to revive Leicestershire after the blow early on. The two batsmen have added 43 runs for the second wicket.
Pankaj Singh has provided India the first breakthrough, getting Matthew Boyce caught by Ajinkya Rahane for four. On the other hand, Angus Robson has looked positive so far in this innings. For those who are not aware, Angus is the younger brother of Sam Robson, the Australian who scored a century for England against Sri Lanka in the recently-concluded series.
India have declared at 333 for four and have now started bowling. Sam Robson’s brother Angus starts the innings for the hosts and Matthew Boyce walks out with him. Bhuvneshwar Kumar started things off for India.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of Day Three of India‘s tour game against Leicestershire on the tour to England. On Day One, India made good progress with all their batsmen getting starts and piling 333 fr four. Only Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli failed to go into the 30s, but all the others scored over 40.

Currently, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane are unbeaten in the 40s. There was no play on Day Two as it was washed out by rain. India will hope that the rain stays away as they need practice. Today is the final day of this match and India have one more practice game later before the first Test.
