  • Gloucestershire v Somerset | Gloucestershire Cricket
    bowlers something to work with After conceding 67 in the last 5 overs Gloucestershire knew a good start was essential if they were to record a third successive win Groenewald s early spell was miserly conceding only nine runs in six overs and while openers Dent and Klinger capitalised on some loose deliveries from Gregory the all rounder helped split the partnership by taking a low catch at short fine leg to dismiss Dent off Groenewald for 16 The situation then appeared tailor made for Klinger who so often this season has been at the core of Gloucestershire wins in one day cricket The question was not only could he deliver again but also could the rest of the batting contribute enough runs around him to secure victory The answer was to be yes on both counts although Gareth Roderick didn t last long caught in his crease by left arm spinner Jack Leach and trapped lbw for 1 Klinger s first sign of aggression was to lift Leach to long on for six and after using his feet with minimal success against the slow left armer Geraint Jones then also cleared the rope The run rate was picking up so it seemed somewhat unnecessary when Jones raised his head to a ball from Allenby and was bowled for 22 Accumulation remained Klinger s approach as he passed fifty off 73 balls with four fours and a six and little was given away by leg spinner Waller or Trego until Benny Howell in at number five pulled Trego over mid wicket for another maximum The pair added exactly 50 before Howell who had made 24 was lbw to Waller with 14 overs remaining and 109 runs still needed Another new batsman put greater emphasis on Klinger who promptly struck three sixes in quick succession one off Trego and two in an over off Groenewald one of them clearing the apartments and ending up in the car park behind Kieran Noema Barnett however wasn t to be outdone After limited chances to bat in the T20 competition he took a liking to the Somerset spinners striking Leach and Waller for six and benefitting from a bad miss in the deep by Adam Hose who not only spilled a catch but also saw the ball go over the boundary Unsurprisingly the crowd got to their feet when Klinger reached his fourth one day century of the summer in the 42nd over off 123 balls but the result was far from a formality especially when the Australian found the hands of Allenby at cover off Groenewald having made 107 Five overs and three balls remained and 43 runs were still required for victory Inevitably given what had happened in the previous two matches the finale was frenetic Noema Barnett was caught at deep backward square leg for 34 31 runs were needed off the last three overs and 23 off the last two Only when Jack Taylor the hero against Derbyshire last Wednesday

    added 92 in 15 overs Burns soon followed having got to 95 with a minimum of fuss he tried to reach his first one day hundred in the grand manner with a six off Benny Howell only to be caught on the long on boundary by Will Tavare Such a double breakthrough would have checked the run rate of other teams but Surrey s batting is deep and although Burke made only 11 wicket keeper Gary Wilson accumulated a brisk 37 being bowled by Howell off the last ball of the innings 291 8 was still a good score and a challenging target Gloucestershire s reply set off at an even pace although is was Chris Dent who dominated the scoring He set the tone by cutting Dernbach past point and then collected two further boundaries off the same bowler in his opening spell Will Tavare had made only eight when he edged Tom Curran to keeper Wilson who was to end the day with five catches Gareth Roderick played a couple of lovely cover drives before he went the same way for 19 and when Geraint Jones chopped Gareth Batty to Roy at point Gloucestershire were 83 3 in the 15th over At that stage Chris Dent looked the most likely anchor for the innings and he was within a single of his first one day fifty of the summer when he steered James Burke straight to Burns at backward point Neither Noema Barnett 11 or Jack Taylor 14 gave much ballast to the innings and when James Fuller joined Benny Howell Gloucestershire were 137 6 and on Duckworth Lewis a long way behind in the game Howell however had made 80 at Northampton 24 hours earlier and by using the pace of the ball and some common sense he and Fuller they were able to add 90 in 16 overs Fuller showed some invention to reach a best List A score of 45 scooping Burke over keeper Wilson and being confident enough to pull Sam Curran through mid wicket for four before playing across a straight one from the same bowler Critically with eight overs left Howell was out just six balls later striking six boundaries in 77 ball innings of 60 before being caught behind trying to lift Dernbach over keeper Wilson It was then left largely to Tom Smith to pull off an unlikely victory and with the aid of a couple of boundaries he and Liam Norwell reached the start of the last over with 22 needed after David Payne also edged Dernbach to Wilson The first two balls went for four but Smith then lost the strike and Tom Curran gave Surrey victory by bowling Norwell to finish with four wickets as Gloucestershire were dismissed for 279 Despite the result both teams qualify for the Royal London Cup quarter finals with home ties Before that however the teams meet again with important Championship points at stake in a four day game starting at the

    and the umpires decided to take the players off Ben Foakes had carried his bat throughout the day making 138 with eighteen fours and it had been a day of toil for the Gloucestershire attack on a flat wicket The question now is how Surrey tactically approach things with two rain disrupted days forecast for Sunday and Monday Day 1 A topsy turvy day at the Bristol County Ground finished with Gloucestershire taking two late wickets to check a strong start by Surrey s openers in the final 90 minutes play on day one of this LV County Championship fixture At the close Surrey were 74 2 in reply to Gloucestershire s first innings total of 233 The two Gloucestershire batsmen to trouble the Surrey seam attack the most both played positively in different ways Gareth Roderick s 71 showed in orthodox fashion that conditions were not exclusively bowler friendly while James Fuller s 48 was made with some brazen aggression as the ball got older Tom Smith shared two half century stands with Fuller and David Payne before running out of partners as Surrey s Tom Curran finished with 6 61 Listen to Gareth Roderick s thoughts on the day here It was overcast and muggy when Surrey captain Gareth Batty won the toss and decided to bowl first and four wickets had gone with barely an hour played as the Curran brothers both made the new ball move off the pitch Their first breakthrough came with the seventh ball of the match Will Tavare being trapped in his crease by Sam Curran s brisk left arm medium pace Curran did also offer up some loose deliveries which Roderick in particular was quick to punish but Chris Dent then went to leave a ball outside the off stump only to find it came back clipped the bottom of his bat and knocked back his off stump With the pitch a long way across the square away from the Mound stand the shorter boundary proved profitable for Roderick who picked off three boundaries in James Burke s first over while at the pavilion end a long and economical spell for Tom Curran finally brought reward as he cleaned bowled the fit again Hamish Marshall without scoring and also removed Benny Howell who edged a routine catch to Jason Roy at second slip When Kieran Noema Barnett walked out at 63 4 Roderick had made 43 by punishing the bad ball and scoring almost exclusively against the bowling from the Ashley Down Road end His fifty which contained nine fours and came off 57 balls contained only five runs off Tom Curran As lunch approach the frenetic start had subsided to a period of relative calm as Roderick and the patient Noema Barnett tried to build a stand of some substance Noema Barnett in particular showed commendable patience and at the interval Gloucestershire had reached 103 4 with Roderick s share a hugely important 68 although even he could not survive

    to the left of Gareth Roderick off Fuller By that stage Adams had found an ideal partner in Will Smith who attacked in aggressive style the pair adding 71 in only 5 3 overs with David Payne taking the brunt of the punishment Three chances went down and in the end the stand was broken by a run out Adams taking on James Fuller s arm and coming second having made 97 off 99 balls When Smith was caught by Marshall off the final delivery of the Hampshire innings he had contributed a quick fire fifty from only 25 deliveries with seven fours and a six The common consent during the break was that if Gloucestershire were to win Michael Klinger would have a big role to play He was dropped before he d scored by Jimmy Adams and it was prove an expensive error For three quarters of the Gloucestershire run chase Klinger dominated the scoreboard to such an extent that extras were the next highest score The skiddy Fidel Edwards removed Chris Dent for four and when Hampshire skipper James Vince brought on Liam Dawson for the first time Gareth Roderick tried to use his feet to attack the spinner and was bowled for 12 The strike was not being rotated as consistently as during the Hampshire innings and Gareth Berg s first four overs cost only ten runs Klinger would have hoped for some meaningful support from Marshall and Howell but both made only nine and when Geraint Jones walked out at number six Klinger had made 54 out of a score of 104 4 and fewer than 14 overs remained Together their experience then proved of huge value In fluctuating light both tried to attack the shorter boundaries both on the leg side and towards the apartments Klinger dispatched Berg for a straight six and Jones passed extras as the second highest contributor by working Liam Dawson over extra cover but Gloucestershire still needed an over or two where they scored heavily The previously economical Berg did concede three boundaries in one over but with rain falling Klinger s beautifully paced innings was halted by Arafat who had the Australian caught at mid wicket for 87 made off 81 balls with ten fours and a six Clearly frustrated with himself Klinger s emotion turned full circle within half an hour as the incoming Jack Taylor played the sort of innings which has been his trademark this season With 51 runs needed from the last five overs Taylor took three fours off an over from Fidel Edwards one standing outside off stump and then smashed two sixes and a four off successive balls in the next bowed by Arafat He d made 34 from only 17 balls when Arafat picked up his third wicket but it was then 11 to win off 11 balls and Geraint Jones finished matters in the grand manner hitting Arafat for six to secure a four wicket win with one over to
