Leicester rain frustrates India

India's bowlers were frustrated as rain washed out day two of the tourists' opening warm-up match against Leicestershire at Grace Road.

India, who arranged to play as many of their 18-strong squad as they choose here, posted 333 for four declared on the first day - when three batsmen made half-centuries, and seven reached at least 20.

But hopes that their bowlers might similarly ease into their five-Test tour too were dashed as heavy rain precluded any play today and confined India to the indoor nets

A better forecast for the final day suggests they will still have a chance to bowl outside against a second-string Leicestershire line-up.
