‘I’ve seen the dark days’ – Why a One-Day Cup win would mean more for Leicestershire
Ahead of Leicestershire’s first 50-over final in 22 years, club captain Lewis Hill and chief executive Sean Jarvis tell Ben Gardner what is driving the club both on and off the field.
Two days in, and the biggest week in Leicestershire County Cricket Club’s modern history has begun in inauspicious fashion.
Sunday starts with them hanging onto Worcestershire’s coat tails in the Division Two promotion race, knowing that a victory with full bonus points will bring them level second with two games to play. On the Saturday, they’ll be contesting the Metro Bank One-Day Cup final against Hampshire, looking to end a wait for 50-over silverware that stretches back to 1985. And with half the game gone at Hove, Leicestershire have been skittled for 106, with Sussex well on their way to setting a target one run shy of 500.
