Leicestershire batsmen Angus Robson and Greg Smith slammed unbeaten centuries to put their side in a strong position of 249 for one at tea against the Indians at the Grace Road on Saturday. Robson is batting on 126 and Smith on 101, as their unbeaten 221-run stand has put their side on top against the tourists.

Angus Robson, who is the brother of Sam Robson has smashed 24 boundaries to reach 126 not out off only 146 balls. On the other hand, Smith has cracked 17 fours and two sixes to score 101 not out. Leicestershire trail by another 84 runs in the first innings. This is the last day of the three-day tour game.

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni used as many as nine bowlers during the play today, with only Pankaj Singh making a mark. The lanky pacer got rid of the opening batsman Matthew Boyce earlier in the day. None of the Indian pacers barring Pankaj could make a mark, with Ishant Sharma in particular not giving any good sign. He was smashed for as many as 59 runs off his eight overs.

Earlier in the day, rain continued to play spoilsport as India could only bowl 13 overs before lunch on the third and final day of their opening tour game against Leicestershire during which the hosts scored 71 for one. Leicester openers Matthew Boyce and Angus Robson took guard after the second day’s play was washed off after the visitors declared the innings on 333 for four. Sharing the new ball with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Pankaj Singh took the only wicket to fall after scalping Boyce for 4 with Ajinkya Rahane pulling off a stunning one-hand catch at third slip, PTI reported.

Brief scores:

India 333 for 4 decl. (Shikhar Dhawan 60, Gautam Gambhir 54, Cheteshwar Pujara 57, Ajinkya Rahane 47*, Rohit Sharma 43*; Shiv Thakor 1 for 31) lead Leicestershire 249 for 1 (Angus Robson 126*, Greg Smith 101*; Pankaj Singh 1 for 22) by 84 runs.
