Cricket Club Yorkshire made an epic comeback against Leicestershire (Leicestershire County Cricket Club) at Grace Road. Leicestershire won the toss and batted, scoring 278 with HD Ackerman top-scoring with a quick 85 not out - forging partnerships with everyone from 6 to 11, who were asked to block at the other end and thus were all out in single figures. After the Barbadian (Barbados) pace bowler Ottis Gibson had reduced Yorkshire to 151, getting Matthew Wood (Matthew Wood (cricketer, born 1977)), Phil Jaques and Ian Harvey out in his 6-56, Leicestershire began the task of assembling a big lead. Everyone made some sort of contribution, but the most intriguing decision of the day was captain Ackerman's - with the lead of 403 and well over a day and a half left to play, he decided not to send fellow countryman Charl Willoughby in to bat and declared (declaration and forfeiture) instead, thinking he would be more use with the new ball. Leicestershire Foxes (Leicestershire County Cricket Club) eked out a last-ball victory over Sussex Sharks (Sussex County Cricket Club) to tighten up the title battle in Division Two of the National League. Batting first, Sussex were tied down by Ottis Gibson, as the Barbadian (Barbados) seamer took four for 37 with three maidens in his nine overs. Chris Adams (Chris Adams (cricketer)) top-scored with 78, while Rana Naved-ul-Hasan blasted 45 off just 31 balls to propel Sussex to a competitive 223 for 8. Sussex fast bowler James Kirtley then bowled a maiden to begin Leicestershire's innings, and had Tom New caught for an eight-ball duck later. However, Darren Maddy and HD Ackerman added 185 for the second wicket, and despite wickets tumbling around him, Ackerman finished on an unbeaten 114, hitting the winning four off the last ball.
