Tom Kohler played a wonderful inning of 97 runs.

Leicestershire knew that they have to do more than that to win and also tried their best to achieve the target. But it was too tough for them indeed. Arron Lilley and Colin Ackermann tried to put some resistance towards the Yorkshire bowlers but none of them could stay on the ground for long. Nonetheless, they scored a respectable 201 runs in the cost of 4 wickets by the end of the days.

In was however a really enjoyable match to watch. Till now it is the second-highest run chase in any of the group matches. Hopefully, we might see more matches like this in the future.
