Ian Bell made the most of what little play there was on the second day of Warwickshire's Second XI Championship match against Leicestershire.
Bell finished a greatly reduced day's play unbeaten on 36 as Warwickshire stretched their second innings score to 174 for five on a Grace Road pitch of increasingly uneven bounce. Although Michael Powell (28) fell early yesterday, Ian Westwood (61 off 113 balls with eight fours) completed his second half-century.
Moeen Ali (29) and Nick James (0) perished in an attempt to up the tempo before the declaration. Warwickshire lead by 291 with one day left to play.
