A figure that reflects terribly on Leicestershire.

That tale of woe does indeed date back that many years, when they began to completely neglect Championship cricket in favour of T20. When the successful T20 side also fell apart, things crumbled even more.

Although they rallied somewhat in 2016, I feel their opening match this year, when they were well matched by Loughborough and Shreck had his meltdown, set the tone for the whole season.

New skipper Michael Carberry has work to do.
