Middlesex claimed a bonus point with three early Leicestershire wickets when their Championship match belatedly got under way at Grace Road.

The rain eased off in the afternoon, allowing the visitors to bowl 11 overs after an uncontested toss.

Paul Horton was run out for nought by George Scott and Tim Murtagh and Tom Helm picked up a wicket apiece.

Opener Hasan Azad remained unbeaten on 17 as the Foxes reached 36-3 before bad light forced the players off again.
