Leicestershire's policy to play positive and purposeful cricket over the last few seasons has resulted in both a resurgence of cricketing interest in the county and a decisive improvement in their Championship participation. Under the leadership of first Tony Lock and now Ray Illingworth they have become one of the most attractive teams in the country-with their confidence this season boosted by the acquisition of Graham McKenzie, the Australian fast bowler, and by the recent appointment of Illingworth as England's current Test captain.
When Glamorgan were last featured in a televised County league game against Kent they seemed to have the game sewn up but eventually lost in an extremely tight finish by only five runs.
