Lancashire in command
County Championship D1, Liverpool, day two (close): Lancashire 503-6 dec. v Leicestershire 117-4

Lancashire stepped on the gas in the afternoon session against Leicestershire before posting a big total at Aigburth.

Resuming play on 210-1, Lancashire added 73 runs in the morning session before clubbing a staggering 220 runs in the afternoon and declaring at tea.

Stuart Law made 82 and former West Indies captain Carl Hooper a quickfire 74, while Andrew Flintoff added an explosive 71 not out off 55 balls.

Leicestershire skipper Phil DeFreitas used nine bowlers in a futile effort to turn the tide.

And DeFreitas was forced to look on as his side lost four wickets before stumps, making the follow-on mark look a long way away.

Peter Martin grabbed two wickets, including David Masters for a duck in the dying overs.

Lancashire: I J Sutcliffe, M J Chilton, M B Loye, S G Law, A Flintoff, C L Hooper, G Chapple, W K Hegg (Capt), P J Martin G Keedy, S I Mahmood.

Leicestershire: J K Maunders, V Sehwag, D L Maddy, B J Hodge, D I Stevens, J N Snape, P A Nixon, P A J DeFreitas (Capt) D D Masters, C E Dagnall, D S Brignull.

Umpires: V A Holder, P J Hartley.
