McKay stars for Leicestershire

Press AssociationPress Association 19/04/2016

Australia seamer Clint McKay starred with bat and then ball as Leicestershire moved into a winning position on day three of their County Championship Division Two match against Glamorgan in Cardiff.

Leicestershire have finished bottom of the Championship three years running, but based on this showing seem unlikely to do so again in 2016.

After resuming on 6-297, still 51 in arrears, McKay equalled his career-best score with 65 as Leicestershire's tail wagged to see them to 427 all out - enough for four batting points and a useful lead of 79.

The Victorian then picked up two quick wickets as the hosts were reduced to 8-172 at stumps, a lead of just 93.

McKay took 58 wickets during his maiden campaign with the Foxes last year, and has impressed again in this match having taken 6-73 in the first innings.
