Match scorecard

Leicestershire pair Matthew Boyce and Russell Cobb led the fightback on a rain-hit third day at Scarborough.

Resuming on 3-1, still a daunting 328 runs in arrears, Leicestershire looked in trouble when Steve Patterson struck twice to reduce them to 14-3.

Adding to his removal of Greg Smith the night before, Patterson also removed Jacques Du Toit and Ramnaresh Sarwan.

But Boyce (46no) and Cobb (45no) then put on 86 to leave Yorkshire still needing seven more wickets.
