Scoring card

Century of Dominic Sibley , his second of the season, helped Warwickshire establish a dominant position after the bowling offensive: he hit Leicestershire by just 100 on the first day of his Specsavers Division Two county championship game at Fischer County Ground.

Sibley, who took only 49 balls to reach his half century, during which he hit the Leicestershire triathlete Usman Arshad for four consecutive limits, was forced to work harder thereafter, and needed another 107 deliveries to reach the three figures At the time of his dismissal shortly before the close, however, the leaders of the league were already leading by 90 with seven innings in the first possibility.

With five first-round players injured, Leicestershire gave a first-class debut at the David Sayer graduate academy, and a test opportunity for the former Arshad quarterback of Yorkshire and Durham, with 20-year-old Ben Mike making only his second appearance in the first team.

A field dyed green and cloudy skies saw Warwickshire captain Jeetan Patel The team has the right to play first, and Keith Barker quickly picked up the posture of Foxes starter Harry Dearden, the young southpaw who overtakes swingers Tim Ambrose.

Colin Ackermann may have been a bit unfortunate Giving a leg to Barker before, the ball hit him well above the knee, but there was no question about the dismissal of Paul Horton shortly after, Chris Woakes removing the centerpiece of the opener with a ball that he cut and inside.

Under the circumstances, Leicestershire could have done it without the self-inflicted wounds of the type inflicted by Neil Dexter, who when trying to get out of the mark did not give his partner Mark Cosgrove the chance to get home. The Australian had surrendered as Woakes, in his follow-up, picked up and hit the stumps with his release.

Ateeq Javid, formerly of Warwickshire, left a shipment of Barker that cut his bail, Dexter pushed indecisively to an oscillating delivery of Woakes to leave behind an obstacle, and Olly Stone was too fast for Ned Eckersley.

Arshad gave Woakes a simple catch in the extra coverage of Stone, with the only bright spot for Leicestershire hitting all-around young Mike, until his attempt to get a short delivery of Stone was overcome at the hands of Chris Wright in the long leg. Same right picked up the last field of Leicestershire, Bowling debutante David Sayer.

The Leicestershire problems continued when they went out to bowling, with Sibley and his starting partner, Will Rhodes, making the most of the loose bowling of the inexperienced members of the Zorros seam attack to compile a society of 123 before that Rhodes left the leg before a full blow The delivery was in the first after tea.

Ian Bell came and went quickly, one leg before Mohammad Abbas, but Jonathan Trott joined Sibley to build another association before Sibley was Mike before the end. [19659013]
