  • Essex v Gloucestershire | Gloucestershire Cricket
    Kishen Velani to concentrate on defence before bad light curtailed play seven overs early The day s early honours went to Essex after Gloucestershire had resumed at a healthy 77 without loss Will Tavare was bowled by Jamie Porter for 32 without addition to the total and in his next over the pace bowler had Gareth Roderick well caught by wicket keeper Foster diving to his left In the end the visitors were indebted to Dent and Peter Handscomb for their useful lead Opener Dent made 57 containing eight boundaries before he was caught in the slips off the medium paced Ryder while Handscomb put together a well contained 66 He reached his half century by pulling Ryder over square leg for 6 a landmark reached in 77 balls and also containing seven fours His innings was eventually cut short by the impressive Porter who ended with 4 for 59 from 20 overs Much is likely to rest on Foster if Essex are to make a real fight of it and he has underlined his determination to do so Normally a batsman with aggressive instincts the home skipper has so far defended resolutely in scoring just 13 from 72 deliveries Velani has proved just as stubborn while gathering three singles from 30 balls the pair having added only 6 in eight overs Obviously Essex will have to display a more positive intent tomorrow but it will not be easy to score freely on a pitch which is still giving seamers assistance with it s occasional awkward bounce which has accounted for so many batsmen in this match so far Essex paceman Jamie Porter who returned figures of 4 for 59 said I felt that I have bowled well without too much reward in the last couple of games but I felt that there were a few wickets around the corner so it was nice to cash in today When we started the day today I just thought that if I could get two or three wickets in one spell it would open the game right up and that s what happened We are in front now although only just but one big partnership and a useful stand elsewhere could get us a 200 lead and I reckon that might win it for us Successful Gloucestershire pace bowler Liam Norwell who followed up his first innings tally of 4 for 32 with three of the four wickets to fall thus far in the Essex second innings stated It s gone pretty well for me in this match As a unit our bowlers put a bigger focus on hitting our fuller and its a bit green on top which gives some assistance Luckily enough I managed to pick up some wickets but it was a real good team effort we bowled good areas and I think we deserve to be in the position that we are Day 1 Inspired by Liam Norwell Gloucestershire took command of their County Championship Division Two clash against second in the table Essex at Chelmsford He produced a devastating spell of seam bowling to capture four wickets in 17 balls at a cost of two runs as the home side were bowled out for 159 and then watched his side reach the close on 77 without loss in reply Yet is seemed Essex were on their way to a decent total after they had been put into bat as openers Nick Browne and Jaik Mickleburgh composed a half century stand following a morning session washed out by rain Mickleburgh produced several well timed drives before the more circumspect Browne gloved a leg side delivery from Craig Miles and was caught behind for 19 to end a stand worth 61 runs Then Norwell made his dramatic impact to fully vindicate the decision of Gloucestershire captain Geraint Jones to insert his opponents Underlining the value of line and length and getting the ball to lift awkwardly and swing Norwell had soon reduced Essex to 82 for 5 He began by bowling Mickleburgh off his pads for 42 the top score of the innings He followed that with two wickets in an over removing Dan Lawrence a 17 year old who scored a century against Surrey last week for 6 and James Foster for a single Both fell to smart catches by Chris Dent at second slip and soon afterwards Norwell got rid of Jesse Ryder as the New Zealander chased a delivery wide of off stump David Payne also picked up two wickets in an over those of Kishen Velani and Graham Napier as the innings fell apart In the end it was only a belligerent wag of the tail that enabled Essex to achieve some semblance of respectability with the last two wickets adding a welcome 53 runs Adeel Malik a leg spinner preferred to the dropped Monty Panesar and on a three month contract marked his debut with 25 made from 23 deliveries That included an on side drive into the stand off Payne before the fast bowler breached his defenses to gain revenge David Masters weighed in with 26 that included five fours before Matt Taylor trapped him leg before As the sun came out and the pitch eased Will Tavare and Dent warmed to their task of making sure the efforts of Norwell and Payne who finished with 4 32 and 3 64 respectively were not wasted Tavare reached the close on 32 with Dent just 8 runs short of a half century to go with his three catches his safe hands having also accounted for Velani Essex Head coach Paul Grayson said It was a good toss to win and we would have put Gloucestershire in if we had won it We had a good first 40 minutes but then things went wrong We need to get wickets early tomorrow if possible but there is still a lot of cricket left in this game and we ve had many good sessions in the last

  • Gloucestershire v Middlesex NatWest T20 Blast | Gloucestershire Cricket
    a straight forward chance at long off from David Payne And he made the home side pay as he went on to make his highest ever T20 score of 78 At the other end Stirling kept the boundaries coming to take the visitors to 63 0 after six overs But the end of the power play proved a turning point in the innings as Stirling dragged on from Matt Taylor for 39 from 24 balls to make it 65 1 Glos could have made another breakthrough in the next over when Jones missed a simple chance to stump Joe Burns off Jack Taylor But the same bowler got his man two overs later caught Marshall at long off to compound a miserable four overs for Middlesex that yielded 14 runs for the loss of two wickets Jack Taylor finished with 1 29 from his four overs and in tandem with Benny Howell 0 25 the pair looked to have negated the visitors positive start But with Compton joined at the crease by experienced Australian Adam Voges Middlesex still looked dangerous The former England opener brought up his 50 in the 14 th over off 36 balls the visitors never quite got away from Glos The return of James Fuller in the 18 th over brought the end of Compton LBW for a career best 78 Former Glos man James Franklin hit the first six of the game in the 19 th over and another one off the final ball of the innings saw Middlesex finish on 175 3 In reply the home side lost Dent in the second over when he skied one to Burns from Steve Finn to make it 15 1 But that bought Marshall and Cockbain together and from their Glos didn t look back Marshall started as the aggressor mixing inventive flicks to third man and fine leg with some powerful shots in front of the wicket including a flat straight six off Harry Podmore in the third over The 50 partnership came up in the seventh over and Marshall brought his 50 up from 33 balls five 4s three 6s in the tenth Scorecard Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to bowl Gloucestershire Christopher Dent Ian Cockbain Peter Handscomb Hamish Marshall Geraint Jones Kieran Noema Barnett Benny Howell Jack Taylor James Fuller David Payne Matthew Taylor Middlesex Paul Stirling Joseph Burns Adam Voges James Franklin Nick Compton Neil Dexter John Simpson James Harris Harry Podmore Steven Finn Ravi Patel Middlesex 175 3 Gloucestershire 179 3 Gloucestershire win by 7 wickets Middlesex How out Runs Minutes Balls 4s 6s Nick Compton L B W James Fuller 78 67 53 9 0 Paul Stirling Bowled Matt Taylor 39 26 24 6 0 Joe Burns Caught Hamish Marshall Bowled Jack Taylor 5 11 9 0 0 Adam Voges Not Out 31 40 27 2 0 James Franklin Not Out 15 10 8 0 2 Neil Dexter John Simpson James Harris Harry Podmore Steven Finn Ravi Patel Extras 0b

    added 81 with a mixture of excellent timing and controlled aggression Jayawardena and Nash s partnership was broken on the first ball of 11 th over when the former was bowled for 43 trying to sweep Smith who had just changed to the Sea End Smith did the damage again in his next over First he had Nash caught on the deep square leg by a diving Hamish Marshall for 43 Then two balls later Craig Cachopa who had hit his last three balls for six was also on his way back to the pavilion for 19 He became the third Sussex man to perish trying to slog sweep Smith when he missed the ball and was given out LBW to make it 110 4 Smith finished with figures of 4 overs 1 maiden 3 24 and he was well supported in the middle overs by Jack Taylor and Benny Howell The returning Payne removed Ben Brown for 8 with a slower ball in the seventeenth over but an unbeaten partnership of 37 between Matt Machan 24 and Will Beer 22 from 16 ensured the Sharks posted a competitive total In reply Glos were on the back foot from the first ball of their innings when Chris Dent was trapped LBW by Steve Magoffin Skipper Ian Cockbain who led the way against Middlesex with a career best 91 not out couldn t repeat the feat in this game as he became Magoffin s second victim in the third over for six to make it 8 2 At the other end Hamish Marshall was playing a sparkling innings flicking the ball over fine leg and running it through third man for a flurry of boundaries to give his side some much needed momentum He was dropped off the first ball of the fifth when Ollie Robinson missed a simple chance at third man off Magoffin but made the most of his let off to score a masterful 45 from 29 balls But Glos kept losing wickets at regular intervals Mills removed Fuller s 2 off stump with a slower ball to make it 39 3 And when Marshall was stumped off Beer in the ninth over Glos were in trouble at 64 4 Handscomb and Howell both fell cheaply trying to sweep Yardy and Beer respectively but Geraint Jones and Jack Taylor gave their side hope Jones made 25 before falling to Mills to make it 112 7 and set up the late onslaught from Taylor and Smith Taylor was particularly impressive striking the ball cleanly for three four and two sixes but both fell before the end to leave Payne and Matt Taylor needing 15 with five balls left Glos are in T20 Blast action again this Sunday when they take on Essex at the Bristol County Ground Scorecard Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to bowl Sussex Luke Wright Chris Nash Denagamage Jayawardene Craig Cachopa Matthew Machan Ben Brown Michael Yardy Will Beer Oliver Robinson Tymal Mills Steven Magoffin

  • Denly and Northeast steer Kent to victory | Gloucestershire Cricket
    encouragement and Miles provided it in his first over Chris Dent taking a comfortable catch at second slip to remove Bell Drummond for three Miles did conceded one boundary to Denly but the Kent opener s judgement on which deliveries to play saw him twice pull the bat away very late to avoid an edge Left hander Nash also enjoyed some fortune against Taylor with one ball going to the fine leg boundary off the bottom of his bat Norwell had Nash in trouble as soon as he was introduced and he deserved the second breakthough Roderick taking a one handed catch with almost casual ease Kent still needed 206 and another wicket at that stage would have made Gloucestershire favourites Half chances were created Taylor had a strangled lbw appeal against Denly who also edged Norwell short of Dent at second slip but Taylor in particular struggled with his line as Northeast tried to establish himself Miles and Payne brought back in double change 20 mins before lunch but to no avail and Kent reached lunch at 85 2 Skipper Geraint Jones clearly saw Miles and Norwell as his greatest threat so the pair were used in tandem at the the resumption and Norwell continued to be out of luck with two boundaries coming from shots which on another day could have gone to hand The match had been typifed by wickets falling in bunches around a handful of big stands and Denly and Northeast with a few scares took Kent towards victory with the match s most important partnership as batting slowly became easier They added their first 100 together in 30 overs Denly bringing up his fifty of 111 balls with nine fours and Northeast gradually finding his form to reach his own half century with eight

  • Klinger returns with record century to beat Essex | Gloucestershire Cricket
    the highest T20 score by a Gloucestershire player and the fifth highest in English domestic T20 history It came after he Essex had won the toss and put the home side in And the innings came to life in the second over when Hamish Marshall hit three consecutive fours off David Masters With Marshall the aggressor and Klinger initially playing a supporting role the pair reached 48 before the former was caught by Shaun Tait at short fine leg attempting a trademark flick off Reece Topley for 29 from 16 balls Now partnered by Iam Cockbain the pair made steady progress before the skipper experienced his first piece of fortune when he was caught at long on off a Tait no ball in the tenth over with the score on 81 1 More luck was to follow in an eventful twelfth over when Klinger was dropped off successive deliveries from Topley First Ryan Ten Doeschate spilt a simple chance at long off when the Glos captain was on 44 and the next ball Napier dropped a near identical chance at long on Topley 2 28 was rewarded with the wicket of Cockbain for 24 to make it 106 2 but his luck didn t last long as he again had Klinger dropped by Ten Doeschate in his next over Klinger could also have been run out in the 15 th over but he made Essex pay for their errors moving up through the gears with a display of increasing fluidity and clean striking Having brought his half century up off 40 balls his next 50 came from just 21 The Big Bash League topscorer took particular liking to Napier 0 62 who he dispatched for six sixes in his final two overs Essex did take two more wickets as Tait 2 37 yorkers did for Peter Handscomb 7 and Chris Dent 7 but they couldn t find a way to stop Klinger who finished on 126 not out Chasing 200 to win Essex were 10 2 in the second over as Payne had openers Mark Pettini and Jesse Ryder caught in front of the wicket Tom Westley and Ravi Bopara got their side back into the game with a partnership of 62 before Benny Howell had the England allrounder caught by James Fuller at long off for 24 With the dangerous Ten Doeschate coming to the crease Glos knew there was still work to be done But when Howell caught Westley off Smith in the twelfth over for an impressive 67 off 40 balls they looked to be in control at 113 4 A wicket each for Smith and Jack Taylor reduced the visitors to 134 6 after 16 But the next over put the game back in the balance Having already gone for 16 in the over Fuller was removed from the attack by the umpires for a second no ball above waist height in the over This left Dent to bowl the last ball which went for six
