Carberry is a big gamble, he may not have been Nixons choice had he been involved at that time. Many players are now in the last chance saloon, Pettini and Horton are for sure in that category. It wouldn't surprise me to see some 'signed off' before the start of next season albeit no doubt at a cost.

Nixon will need to be given time. It's a process to build a successful side from a very low starting point - the basic challenge being that there are 17 other clubs all also chasing success. So it is a first step to be competititive, but an altogether bigger one to start winning leagues and cups.

Leics don't have a bad squad. Obviously they need to strengthen in a few areas but their main problem is not so much a lack of talent as the fact that they have forgotten how to win and there is an almost total lack of self-belief. If Nixon can instill that quality while developing players in the usual way, he will have gone a long way towards making them a competitive side again.

He will need help from Carberry. Hopefully he's grown and matured as a character because in his younger days he gave the impression of being rather too wound up in himself to be a leader and had a bit of a chip on his shoulder which made him regard himself as an 'outsider'.

At 36 he has nothing to prove to himself or to anyone else about his quality as a player so hopefully that will enable him to concentrate on getting the best out of the rest of his team.

Good luck to Leics. They are also lucky in having Wasim Khan as a very go-ahead CEO.

The young players show great promise, Ali,Chappell,Parkinson,Hill,Griffiths have all enjoyed good games in various forms of cricket.Cosgrove,Raine Klein and Ackermann are also consistent performers. The let down in 2017 were the senior players. Horton,Pettini,Dexter,Eckersley and McKay were all below the standard required. The new overseas player is key - someone to take 50 Championship wickets perhaps ?

Muhammad Abbas and Sohail Khan to share lead overseas player role for 2018.
Hopefully both should do well in all forms of the game for LCCC

Mohammad Nabi becomes second overseas player for T20's. Overall set up,especially coaching has had a good overall. Let's hope Nico can achieve where others have failed

Finally a win for the Foxes despite another attempt to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Horton replaced Carberry with immediate effect as captain - what's gone on there?

According to what passes for a Leicestershire forum - a thread on the football discussion site - there may have been some sort of bust-up, and whatever, he isn't playing today.

It seems that clubs doing badly are always a step away from imploding - remember Rikki Clarke quitting after just a few months at Derbyshire - but this seems to have happened very quickly indeed.
