Derbyshire remain unbeaten

Derbyshire safely negotiated a rain-affected final day against Leicestershire at The County Ground to remain top of the LV=County Championship.

Martin Guptill hit an unbeaten 67*, whilst opening partner Paul Borrington finished undefeated on 18* as the hosts reached 91 without loss chasing a theoretical 314 to win before the two captains shook hands at 5pm.

Leicestershire had begun the day 76-1 - a lead of 220 runs - however progress was thwarted by Tony Palladino and David Wainwright; the pair restricting Matthew Boyce and Jacque du Toit to 44 runs in the opening hour.

Shortly after the former had reached a 107-ball fifty, his partner became the first dismissal of the morning, du Toit edging behind to Tom Poynton off the bowling of Jon Clare for 48.

With the visitors looking to force the issue, Ramnaresh Sarwan blasted 24 from just 13 balls, Leicestershire losing Boyce, caught and bowled Wainwright for 65 in the process.
