Yorkshire lose again
NCL1, Headingley: Leicestershire 251-8 beat Yorkshire 233 by 18 runs

Leicestershire's overseas recruits came to the fore with the bat to consign Yorkshire to another defeat.

Virender Sehwag hit 65 while Brad Hodge outlasted him to compile 104 off 119 balls.

In Yorkshire's reply, Yuvraj Singh was another overseas batsman to come good.

The Indian star hit a brilliant 50 off just 46 balls but the other Yorkshire players found batting much harder.

That was until Tim Bresnan hit an extraordinary 61 off 51 balls but he was just unable to stay long enough to give his side a scarcely-deserved win.

David Masters and Phil DeFreitas each took three wickets.

It was Yorkshire's fifth loss in six National League matches this term.
