    it hard to accelerate the scoring With five overs to go Glos were on 113 4 and in need of boundaries Jones reverse swept Mahmood for four in the 17 th but was struck a blow himself in the next over when he was floored by a Tom Curran ball that hit him in the mid riff The pair completed a single but a short break in play was needed for the wicketkeeper batsman to recover his composure When play resumed Handscomb holed out to Foakes at deep midwicket for 39 to leave Glos on 139 5 with 19 balls remaining Jones cleared the ropes off the first ball of the final over bowled by Tom Curran but that was the only boundary as the visitors finished on 154 5 Jones 37 Kieran Noema Barnett 4 Having seen how effective Batty and Ansari had been Klinger chose to open with Tom Smith Gloucestershire s most successful bowler in this year s competition He went for just four in a tight first over They progressed steadily to 24 0 before an action packed fifth over sparked the innings into life Roy followed up a six over mid off with a four through point He then skied one over wide long off which resulted in a terrible mix up and Tom Curran on his way run out by Marshall for 10 19 runs including three fours for Roy and a six for Sangakarra came of Norwell in the sixth over to leave Surrey on the same score 55 as Glos had been after the power play but one wicket better off The home side lost their second wicket in the next over when Roy 33 became Smith s 19 th Blast wicket of the season brilliantly stumped by Jones following a referral to the third umpire Benny Howell picked up a wicket in his first over when Wilson 4 hit a full toss straight down the throat of Miles on the square leg boundary to make it 62 3 Just as Glos had done Surrey struggled to find the boundary during the middle overs thanks to good bowling from Howell 1 30 Jack Taylor 1 22 and Smith 2 24 At one stage they went eight overs without finding the fence They finally did off the first ball of the fifteenth over from Howell Ben Foakes was nearly caught by Taylor at long on but as he raced in it dropped agonisingly short and beat him on the bounce This was the second time the right hander had tested his luck following a similar half chance off Smith two overs earlier He finally did find the hands of a Glos fielder off the last ball of the sixteenth over as he holed out top Handscomb off Taylor for 27 to make it 115 4 New man Azhar got off the mark with a straight six off Smith as the home side looked to launch their assault But the Glos spinner had the

    same fielder failed to hang on to a tough chance off Cooper in the following over which was bowled by Smith The drops proved costly as the Australian combined with New Zealand wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi to put on 81 for the fifth wicket Taylor came in for particular punishment in the 17 th over as he was flayed for three slog swept sixes two from Ronchi one from Cooper as the score progressed to 141 4 Ronchi smashed two more maximums in the next over from Howell and another from Fuller before skying to Smith at point for 49 off just 22 balls Fuller then made it two in two balls as Cooper 38 bottom edged a slower to Geraint Jones who took a brilliant one handed catch Jamie Overton top edged a four off Miles in the final over to help the hosts finish on 174 6 In reply Glos openers Marshall and Klinger started patiently reaching 11 0 after two overs But they hit the accelerator pedal in the third over Klinger hitting three fours off Overton to make it 26 0 From here the pair continued to find the boundary with regularity scoring at least two fours in each of the next three overs to reach 62 0 by the end of the power play 15 ahead of the home side at the same stage The first six of the innings came in the eighth over as Klinger sent Max Waller straight back over his head At the halfway stage the visitors had moved on to 93 0 The two batsmen had been going shot for shot but Marshall reached his 50 first with a cover drive off Overton in the 11 th He hit a six and four off Allenby in the next over and seemed intent on winning the game with overs to spare Klinger reached his 50 in fortuitous fashion in the 13 th over as Alfonso Thomas dropped a dolly on the third man boundary and he scampered a two At the other end Marshall was going like a train and smote a towering six over square leg from Thomas in the 14 th to get Glos 40 short of the Somerset score with six overs remaining The pair brought up their 150 partnership off the third ball of the 16 th over and seemed content to do it in singles with less than a run a ball required The biggest surprise of the night was that both fell before the end Marshall was caught at deep midwicket by Waller off Overton for a sparkling 93 from 53 balls with 10 fours and three sixes Klinger joined him back in the dugout the next over LBW Thomas for 58 from 51 balls After losing the last two games in the final two deliveries Glos didn t want this one going to the wire as well It reached the final over but Handscomb and Cockbain kept their cool to secure a famous win over

  • Gloucestershire v Leicestershire | Gloucestershire Cricket
    was due Howell pulled off spinner Niak into the members stand for six The return of opening bowlers Raine and McKay didn t disrupt the flow of either batsman and Howell reached his first fifty of the season off 156 balls with four fours and a six Noema Barnett had also passed his best score of the season by tea when he had reached 34 not out with a couple of particularly fine strokes one a straight drive to long off and the other through the covers At that stage the stand was worth 71 and the lead at 202 4 was 205 The question of a possible declaration was discussed among the assembled press during the tea interval but in the end it wasn t necessary as the game returned to a more normal Cheltenham pace in the final session Howell and Noema Barnett went up another gear adding 54 in only 6 overs Howell by now punishing anything short off the back foot Noema Barnett s first Gloucestershire half century including half a dozen boundaries and a pull through mid wicket for six and he d made 61 he drove Shreck to Smith at extra cover It was then fitting that Jack Taylor whose hundred had lit up the Northants win last week was then at the crease with Howell as he reached three figures going from 50 to his century sealing shot in only 46 deliveries with another eight boundaries For Howell and another good College Ground crowd it was a special moment The clatter of wickets that followed starting with Howell who was lbw to McKay for 102 made little or no odds in the context of the match Jack Taylor 11 Miles 9 and Norwell 5 all went cheaply but what was more important was that it gave Gloucestershire eight overs to try and make a breakthrough ahead of the final day The nearest they came was in the last over when Robson was nearly run out at the non strikers end by Craig Miles He would have been if Miles throw had hit the stumps It didn t and Leicestershire start the final day 11 without loss needing 314 more runs for an unlikely win That said taking ten wickets on a slow pitch won t be easy either Day 2 A slow scoring second day at Cheltenham College ended with both teams still believing victory was possible Gloucestershire took the seven remaining Leicestershire first innings wickets for the addition of 159 runs in the first two sessions as they were dismissed for 215 James Fuller taking 4 35 Starting their second innings with a lead of three Gloucestershire then extended it to 57 by the close for the loss of openers Tavare and Dent Listen to head coach Richard Dawson s thoughts on the day here For the second time at this year s Cheltenham Festival a story unfolded before play began with skipper Ian Cockbain taking a blow while batting in the nets With the General Hospital across the road from the ground it didn t take long to confirm that the skipper had broken his left wrist and would play no further part in the match Furthermore he was likely to be in plaster for five weeks With Geraint Jones not in the side it was Michael Klinger who took on the captaincy responsibilities The first hour s play came and went without a breakthrough Leicestershire s overnight pair of Cosgrove and night watchman Naik content to play only at deliveries which demanded their attention Norwell and Miles had opened the attack and 33 runs had added before Howell part of a double change which also involved Fuller drew an edge from Naik and Dent took a smart catch at second slip The barrel chested Cosgrove was playing much more conservatively than normal but when the Leicestershire captain cut Fuller past gully he reached his half century off 94 balls with eight boundaries The pitch remained one where expansive batting was difficult and as in the Gloucestershire first innings no partnership reached 50 without being broken In the case of Cosgrove and loanee Greg Smith Kieran Noema Barnett was to be Michael Klinger s trump card The Kiwi had taken only three first class wickets since the end of April but in a spell either side of lunch he removed Smith caught and bowled for 20 and then the vital wicket of Cosgrove who survived two strong appeals for lbw before being caught behind by Roderick for 74 Klinger was careful with his field placings throughout the afternoon session as he tried to balance the need for both wickets and economy Lewis Hill already with a first class hundred to his name this season gave Aadil Ali sensible support as they patiently added 38 on a diet entirely of seam bowling until Liam Norwell edged one wicket closer to 50 for the season when he clean bowled Hill for 18 Only six overs remained until the second new ball when Jack Taylor had his first bowl of the day and the stubborn Ali was almost stumped by Roderick in his first over In the end Klinger decided the new ball would not wait until after tea and it brought the last three wickets either side of the interval In the last over before tea Miles removed Raine by taking a gentle caught and bowled chance and in his first over after it Fuller clean bowled Ali for 40 made off 119 balls with only four boundaries When Miles caught a steepler launched high towards the chapel off Fuller by McKay Gloucestershire has squeezed out a first innings lead of three runs with 27 overs to bat on the day James Fuller s figures of 4 35 were his best of the season With the match so evenly balanced the last 90 minutes or so was important to both teams and in the context of the match Gloucestershire got off to a

    the 46th time in one day internationals as England reached the end of the 20th over 92 without loss But Australia hit back with the first ball of the next over when Knight was sent back by Edwards after attempting a quick single but she was not quick enough and Lanning gathered the ball well before throwing the stumps down from midwicket Edwards departed for 58 after being bowled by Schutt just after the halfway mark of the England innings when trying to pull to the leg side Jess Jonassen was brought back for her second spell in the following over and ended it by castling Amy Jones for nought to leave England 123 for three Sarah Taylor raced towards a fifty as England remained narrowly ahead on Duckworth Lewis with the light fading but she fell seven runs short of the personal landmark when she was adjudged lbw to Jonassen That brought Natalie Sciver together with Lydia Greenway the heroes from the first ODI at Taunton but there was to be no match winning contribution from the pair this time as Greenway added 20 before being trapped lbw by Sarah Coyte Greenway s wicket was the first of six in the space of seven overs Georgia Elwiss was bowled by Schutt before Sciver was beaten by Coyte having made three Schutt also had Anya Shrubsole lbw before bowling Kate Cross for two and despite an entertaining 21 from Katherine Brunt Erin Osborne rounded off the match by castling Becky Grundy Schutt was one of two changes in the Australia side with opener Nicole Bolton also coming in Bolton earlier combined with Elyse Villani to put on 65 for the opening wicket England finally made a breakthrough in the 16th over as Villani cut behind to Taylor when trying to
