Counted chickens sometimes hatch : Leicestershire v Gloucestershire

They do say that counted chickens never hatch, but in this case they were wrong.

In my last entry I was wondering if  it was worth going to Grace Road, as Leicestershire only needed five wickets to win. I thought this might take ten minutes.

In fact all the devil seemed to gone out of the pitch, and it seemed possible that Gloucestershire might achieve a fourth innings score of improbable magnitude to win the match.  In the event, they fell just short – Leicestershire won shortly before five, amid scenes of general rejoicing.

Something similar happened elsewhere yesterday, I believe.
