Match scorecard

Centuries by James Vince and Liam Dawson allowed Hampshire to dominate day two at bottom club Leicestershire.

After losing the first day to rain, Matthew Hoggard bowled a tight, but wicketless opening spell for the home side in his final first-class game.

But Sean Terry made 57 and Dawson (136) and Vince (145) shared a stand of 248, which was still unbroken at the close of play with the visitors on 362-2.

It was the impressive Vince's third century in as many matches.

He followed his hundreds against Worcestershire and Lancashire by hitting a six and 25 fours, while partner Dawson reached his maiden first-class ton this summer after over three hours at the crease.

It was a frustrating day for Leicestershire, who rotated nine bowlers during the day, with Ben Raine (1-66) and Shiv Thakor (1-32) the only ones to achieve a breakthrough.
