9:41am Monday 6th August 2012 in Sport
COUNTY CRICKET: Essex eased to a comfortable seven-wicket victory over Leicestershire in their bottom of the table Clydesdale Bank 40 Group A clash at Chelmsford.
In a match reduced to 25 overs each because of rain, the hosts surpassed Leicestershire’s 151 for seven with nine deliveries to spare.
Owais Shah led the way for Essex with an unbeaten 45 from 46 deliveries, which included three fours and a six.
The foundation had been laid by openers Mark Pettini and Tom Westley who shared in a stand of 62 in nine overs before both fell to medium-pacer Wayne White.
