India are playing Leicestershire at Grace Road in a three-day Tour game. On Day One of the match, Shikhar Dhawan, Gautam Gambhir, and Cheteshwar Pujara all scored fifties, and Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane were unbeaten overnight on 40s. India are playing with 18 members of the team, with 11 of them batting and 11 taking the field. Catch the live blog of the match here.

 

Leicestershire were looking a bit deflated after the onslaught by the Indians, and will be hoping that Day Two will bring about a change in their fortunes.They were able to take only two wickets, with two of the batsmen retiring to give others a knock, and Dhawan retiring hurt. Hopefully, the opener’s injury was not too serious, and will be fit in time for the first Test.
