Brooke Guest, Anuj Dal put on record stand to rescue Derbyshire


Pair score maiden first-class tons for Derbyshire’s highest sixth-wicket partnership but hard work remains

Derbyshire 318 for 8 (Guest 116, Dal 106) trail Leicestershire 528 by 215 runs

A record-breaking stand between Brooke Guest and Anuj Dal rescued Derbyshire on the third day of the LV=Insurance County Championship match against Leicestershire at Derby.

The pair scored maiden first-class centuries as they passed Derbyshire’s previous highest sixth-wicket stand of 212 by Garnet Lee and Stan Worthington against Essex at Chesterfield in 1932.

They added 227 in 73 overs with Guest scoring 116 and Dal 106 to lift Derbyshire from 56 for 5 to 313 for 8 although 65 is still needed to avoid following on.

The prospect of Derbyshire frustrating Leicestershire’s bowlers looked unlikely when two wickets fell in the first seven overs of another hot morning.
