  • Gloucestershire v Derbyshire | Gloucestershire Cricket
    front line bowlers having bowled out it was down to the occasional left arm spin of Chesney Hughes Taylor took two runs off each of the first three balls and then swung another six towards the Mound stand Scampering another two off the penultimate ball it looked like Taylor who by that stage had scored 40 off 13 balls would have to hit the last ball for six to win the match until the most unlikely of twists Earlier in the day a stand of 182 between Hamish Rutherford 110 and Wayne Madsen 106 saw Derbyshire convert a modest score at half distance to a daunting 274 5 after 48 overs The innings was also interrupted for 30 minutes by rain but in the final six overs Derbyshire rattled up 76 runs to set Gloucestershire a revised D L target of 284 After David Payne removed Billy Godleman with his first ball and Tom Smith took a steepling catch off Craig Miles to account for Wes Durston Derbyshire prospered as both Madsen and Rutherford were dropped on their way to centuries Kieran Noema Barnett was the unlucky bowler on both occasions Madsen had made only seven when Benny Howell failed to hold a low chance at mid on he was to atone later with the bat and David Payne juggled with and then spilled a cut by Rutherford to short third man when on 46 One wonders what Derbyshire s total might have been if either chance had been held As it was Gloucestershire toiled without a breakthrough for nearly 30 overs Rutherford driving Tom Smith into the pavilion to bring up the 100 partnership and with ten overs remaining Derbyshire with both men well set had reached 182 2 Chesney Hughes 6 and Poynton 8 perished cheaply in the final push but Rutherford completed his century from 127 balls before he clipped Fuller to Klinger at cover for 110 and Madsen raced from 50 100 in only 24 deliveries collecting seven fours and a six in the process Miles Payne and Fuller could do little to halt what became a torrent of runs as Madsen finished 106 not out Needing to score at six an over to win Chris Dent and Michael set out knowing Gloucestershire s reply couldn t get caught in the blocks Dent in particular batted as if it was a T20 match striking six fours and a straight six before being clean bowled by Ben Cotton for 31 In the same over the eighth Klinger played on for 11 leaving Gareth Roderick and Geraint Jones to pick up the baton from 44 2 They added 59 in 16 overs before Roderick called Jones for a sharp single and saw him run out by Alex Hughes for 27 In poor light Roderick and Howell were then falling behind the run rate when the first of the rain interruptions forced the players off and Gloucestershire appeared no better placed when the second shower brought a longer delay

    to be Cockbain s last contribution as he edged one to Balbirnie at short third man to depart for 75 His innings which came off just 39 balls included five fours and six sixes His departure did little to slow the Glos run rate as Geraint Jones picked up where Cockbain had left off He struck three fours over cover in the 18 th over bowled by Abbott and followed it up with two more over the same part of the field in the next one from Roland Jones In the midst of Jones boundary hitting Howell brought up a deserved half century off 32 balls with six fours and a six He was run out by Abbott in the final over for a career best 57 But a towering six by the wicketkeeper from the penultimate ball of the innings ensured Glos would post a commanding 214 4 Like Klinger Middlesex dangerman Paul Stirling started in ominous fashion clipping Fuller over point for six off his first ball He struck another maximum in the next over off Craig Miles but became the seamer s first T20 victim of the season when he chopped on one ball later for 13 New man Nick Gubbins settled straight away hitting two fours and a six off Fuller to take the hosts to 33 1 after three Having opened the bowling throughout this season s Blast Payne was made to wait until the fifth over to enter the action And he made an instant impact First Fuller took a good catch at mid off to dismiss Nick Compton 8 before getting Gubbins in the same over caught by Jones off Payne for 28 after top edging a pull Gubbinsm on T20 debut hit five fours and a six in a 14 ball onslaught Franklin and John Simpson began the task of rebuilding for Middlesex and reached 99 3 at the halfway stage after the latter helped take 21 off a Jack Taylor over with some fearsome straight hitting But just as it looked like Middlesex may get away Howell picked up the wicket of Franklin 16 in the next over caught by Cockbain to make it 114 4 Andrew Balbirnie fell without score in the next over as the introduction of Payne again did the trick Howell taking the catch at short cover as Glos closed in on victory When Miles had Dexter 2 caught by Jones and Abbott fell to Payne in consecutive overs the home side were floundering on 125 7 Tom Smith James Fuller and Payne cleaned up the tail between them to leave Middlesex 43 runs short with three balls left Simpson top scoring with 74 Next up for Glos is the visit of local rivals Somerset at the Bristol County Ground this Friday Scorecard Middlesex won the toss and elected to bowl Middlesex Nick Compton Paul Stirling Nicholas Gubbins James Franklin Andrew Balbirnie John Simpson Neil Dexter Kyle Abbott James Harris Tobias Roland Jones Nathan Sowter Gloucestershire Michael

    but a single off Waller in the 12 th over took him to 37 and 450 T20 runs for the season Sadly for the expectant Glos fans he was only able to add seven more runs to his score before after flicking a full toss from Allenby 1 17 down the throat of Hildreth deep backward square leg The skipper s dismissal made it 99 3 and it was soon 101 4 when his replacement Geraint Jones 1 top edged a sweep from Waller 1 21 straight up in the air to be easily claimed by Bates Kieran Noema Barnett 6 struck a fine four over cover off Rehman 1 18 in the 16 th over but he perished next ball to a spectacular one handed diving catch from Thomas at short mid wicket to make it 115 5 Howell 26 off 23 tried to give Glos some late acceleration but was caught at long off by Rehman off Thomas in the 18 th over with the score on 124 6 Jack Taylor 24 off 14 and James Fuller 14 off 6 were both out before the end but their late flurries helped the home side to 165 8 In reply an encouraging first over from Fuller saw him beat the bat three times and take the edge but an Allenby cover drive for four made it 5 0 The Australian born allrounder struck five more fours before he top edged a pull from Craig Miles to David Payne at short fine leg for 27 off 21 balls in the fifth over to leave his side 44 1 Johann Myburgh had played second fiddle to Allenby but he now became the aggressor Two consecutive fours bludgeoned through midwicket off Payne ensured Somerset reached 59 1 at the end of the powerplay 22 better than Glos at the same stage With Myburgh scoring freely all Peter Trego had to do was keep him company But he fell to Tom Smith in the tenth over top edging a sweep to Payne for 8 to let Glos back in at 84 2 Tanvir was promoted up the order and he made 13 before skying onefrom Howell 1 30 to Noema Barnett at point off the back of his bat for 13 to make it 104 3 Tight bowling saw just 12 runs off the next three overs but this was broken by the first six of the innings from James Hildreth off Howell over long on Myburgh brought up his 50 off 42 balls with single off Howell But he fell shortly afterwards to a brilliant diving catch by Handscomb at wide long off trhe bowling of Smith 2 23 This made it 143 4 in the eighteenth over and left the game still in the balance Two consecutive sixes by Tom Cooper in the penultimate over from Payne all but ended Glos hopes of pulling off a victory in front of an increasingly raucous full house When was caught by Miles at

  • Gloucestershire v Essex | Gloucestershire Cricket
    send back Klinger who could do nothing to prevent an edge which gave Ryder his first catch of the day The New Zealander had opened the bowling at the Ashley Down Road End but it was in the slips where he was have his real impact after removing Dent who didn t get a full stride in when Ryder came round the wicket and fell lbw for 12 Gareth Roderick had been using whatever pace there was to chiefly score square with or behind the wicket and he and Ian Cockbain has just started to steady things when Ravi Bopara produced a double blow just before lunch First Ryder dived forward to cling onto a dead weight edge from Roderick who had made 28 and then the same combination removed Geraint Jones after the ball lifted on the Gloucestershire skipper The top order had been removed with only 61 on the board The follow on target was still 108 runs away and only Benny Howell fleetingly threatened to stay around long enough to get Gloucestershire past it It was Napier who did the damage on his return to the attack Cockbain being trapped lbw for 10 after getting caught in his crease Ryder snaffled a fourth catch when Jack Taylor cut airily at Porter before the chunky Napier produced a spectacular finish bowling Howell who shouldered arms Miles and Fuller in the same over to finish with 4 27 With the ball still moving it was no surprise that James Foster enforced the follow on and Napier wasn t having the ball taken off him at that point Another full straight delivery thudded against Dent s pad and the opener was on his way When Tavare tried and failed to draw his bat inside another well directed ball from Porter both openers had been out twice in the day and made only 22 runs between them Gloucestershire were 10 2 and 193 runs were still needed to make Essex bat again Klinger and Roderick survived the 13 overs until tea when Gloucestershire were 38 2 and occupation of the crease remained the priority for the rest of the day Roderick was dropped twice but not a third time when his stand with Klinger had reached 55 He d made 24 when he played an attempted cut to a ball from Ryder and Foster did the rest With runs in the bank Essex could continue to attack It would be wrong to say that Klinger was fluent but there was room for the occasional pleasing drive as well as his trademark deflections The difficulty of the day was summed by the shot that took him to his fifty off 97 balls an edge past first slip which brought him his seventh boundary Cockbain who had battled away for over an hour in the first innings without much impact on the scoreboard was then able to keep Klinger company until stumps by which point they had added 61 for the 4th wicket The deficit is down to 77 but there is still much to do Day 1 It s hard to know who s on top after a sunny Sunday at the Bristol County Ground Essex might have hoped for better given where they were at lunch after winning the toss while Gloucestershire will feel their bowlers have recovered a position that threatened to get away from them In mid afternoon Essex were 169 5 only for a century stand between Ryan Ten Doeschate 73 and captain James Foster 63 to steady the innings However the Gloucestershire bowlers shared five wickets after tea to dismiss Essex for 319 Fuller splattering Porter s stumps with the last ball of the day Listen to Benny Howell s thoughts on the day here Gloucestershire were still unable to select Hamish Marshall because of a calf injury but Gareth Roderick s thumb had recovered sufficiently for him to play as a batsman with skipper Geraint Jones keeping wicket James Fuller was brought back into the attack in place of Matt Taylor The most striking factor of Essex s batting particularly in the morning session was the high proportion of boundaries Aided by a fast outfield and a short boundary towards the Kennington Avenue side of the ground they reached the rope 24 times in 29 overs during the morning session Having lost the toss Jones was to be involved immediately spilling a chance in the second over off James Fuller when Nick Browne had made only a single His reaction suggested a better decision would have been to have left it to Michael Klinger at first slip England captain Alistair Cook was playing in only his second Championship match of the summer and initially he was content for Browne to dominate the strike His timing even to the shorter boundary was not quite as he would have wanted although it mattered little as Browne accelerated to 36 before clipping Norwell to Jack Taylor at mid wicket in the Cornishman s second over Miles opened up with a five over spell but when he was brought back from the Ashley Down Road end Cook drove him for three boundaries in his only over as Essex started to look dominant It was something of a relief when Cook who had seen a ball from Howell edged between Klinger and Dent and not go to hand came half forward to Howell 15 minutes before lunch He was rapped on the pad and umpire Gale sent him on his way for 48 Gloucestershire needed an early breakthrough in the afternoon session to pull the game round and the willing Norwell got it with just the second delivery Westley had struck eight fours in an unbeaten 33 by lunch so Geraint Jones was grateful to accept an easy chance as Westley swished at one outside the off stump There might have been a double breakthrough if Tavare had clung onto a sharp low chance off Miles when Bopara had made only

    Marshall s absence last time out the pair put things right with the 50 partnership coming up off the last ball of the sixth over The introduction of spin slowed Glos up but it was a burst of pace that got the first breakthrough The return of Tymal Mills in the 11 th over saw him pick up the wicket of Marshall for 37 off 27 balls as he miscued a pull to Luke Wight at mid on This brought the in form Ian Cockbain to the crease and he wasted no time getting into the action racing to 24 with three sixes off Yardy 0 41 from 3 in the 13 th over one over midwicket and two over long off Klinger was once again looking imperious until he fell in the 15 th over for 61 skying Chris Liddle 1 37 straight up in the air for a good diving catch to be taken by wicketkeeper Craig Cachopa Cockbain was chopped on to Mills 2 31 for 30 in the seventeenth over but Benny Howell 25 Jones 16 and Noema Barnett 5 helped them reach 185 4 Will Beer proved the most economical with four overs for 24 In reply Glos got off to a great start as Fuller trapped Nash LBW with the third ball of the innings And he followed it up with the wicket of Machan in his next over caught by Klinger at cover off a leading edge for 5 to make it 13 2 Wright and Cachopa added 36 for the third wicket before the wicketkeeper became Tom Smith s 17 th victim of an impressive Blast campaign caught at long off by Peter Handscomb for 18 This brought former Australia T20 captain George Bailey to the crease for the first time in a Sussex shirt With Wright looking in increasingly good touch at the other end the game still hung in the balance The pair moved the score on to 80 before Bailey 12 toed a low full toss from Howell to a diving Marshall coming in from the deep mid wicket boundary Smith 2 32 and Howell 2 37 removed Finch 8 and Beer 9 respectively to reduce Sussex to 117 6 after 16 But with Wright now in full flow Glos capitulated in the face of some fine striking from Wright who went from 50 to 100 in the space four overs to lead his side home to the unlikeliest of victories Scorecard Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to bat Gloucestershire Michael Klinger Hamish Marshall Peter Handscomb Ian Cockbain Benny Howell Geraint Jones Jack Taylor James Fuller Tom Smith Craig Miles Kieran Noema Barnett Sussex Chris Nash Luke Wright George Bailey Craig Cachopa Matthew Machan Michael Yardy Harry Finch Will Beer Oliver Robinson Christopher Liddle Tymal Mills Gloucestershire 185 4 Sussex 188 7 Sussex win by 3 wickets Gloucestershire How out Runs Minutes Balls 4s 6s Hamish Marshall Caught Luke Wright Bowled Tymal Mills 37 41 27 4 1
