Nothing to separate the sides at Cheltenham

Gloucestershire 218, Leicestershire 215

Things are looking pretty even between Gloucestershire and Leicestershire at Cheltenham as wickets continued to fall before and after tea.

Aadil Ali was the ninth man out for 40 when he was bowled by James Fuller just after tea who then dismissed Clint McKay shortly after to pick up his fourth wicket.

Gloucestershire hold just a three run first innings lead over their opponents.

Cosgrove out for 74

Gloucestershire 218, Leicestershire 166-6

Any hopes Leicestershire had of building a big lead over Gloucestershire at Cheltenham have suffered a blow with the dismissal of captain Mark Cosgrove.

The Australian nicked Kieran Noema-Barnett behind shortly after lunch.

The visitors' chances of a first-innings advantage now appear to rest with 20-year-old Aadil Ali who is unbeaten on 23 and the rest of the lower order.

They currently trail by 52 runs.

BBC Sport's Elizabeth Ammon

at Cheltenham:

"It's been a decent morning for Leicestershire here at beautiful Cheltenham College.

"Captain Mark Cosgrove has played a very controlled innings in tricky conditions on a slow pitch; he's moved to 63 and is anchoring the Leicestershire innings admirably.

"The cloud has lifted and the sun is breaking through so batting should get a bit easier this afternoon, just as it did yesterday."

Gloucestershire have also been hit with the news that Ian Cockbain, who only took over the captaincy last week, will be out for four to six weeks with a broken wrist.

Surrey may only be chasing 125 to win, but Kent may have given themselves a chance after James Tredwell has Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara stumped for just one.

However Rory Burns is still going strong on 34, and the hosts now need less than 100 to win.

The odds are still heavily in Surrey's favour.
