  • Magnificent 8 wicket win against Yorks sends Glos to Lord’s Final | Gloucestershire Cricket
    had an escape on 12 at 93 without loss when he swept at Howell and Liam Norwell could not make a sharp left handed chance stick round the corner The stand entered three figures as Lees off drove Howell for his one and only boundary and two balls later he hit a low return catch to end an opening stand of 103 of which he contributed 21 From that point on things never quite went according to plan for Yorkshire who saw the chance of a 300 plus score gradually slip away from them Leaning fell lbw playing across the line at Howell and there was generous applause for Jonny Bairstow when he joined the fray at 127 for two Lyth suddenly launched Jack Taylor high over mid wicket for six but just when a century beckoned he top edged a hook at Fuller and was caught close to the ground at long leg by David Payne his 96 coming off 88 balls with ten fours and a six But the dismissal which really hurt Yorkshire and left them on 198 for four in the 36th over was that of Bairstow who in Norwell s previous over had patted back a low catch to the bowler who appeared to drop the ball while about to throw it into the air It took quite a while before the third umpire David Millns decided the catch had not been completed when the ball slipped from Norwell s grasp Neither Yorkshire nor Bairstow benefited because in Norwell s next over Bairstow was lbw without adding to his 34 and wickets were then lost to some tame shots Will Rhodes driving Taylor high and straight to Fuller and Ballance returning a gentle catch to Howell Bresnan was the best of the rest with four boundaries in his 27 but Gloucestershire had pulled things back Howell leading the way with three for 37 from his ten overs It is 50 years since Yorkshire won their first one day trophy the Gillette Cup and they have built up a depressing record in the semi finals of major knockout competitions since then In all they have played in 22 semi finals and only won six of them Gloucestershire have won the last four semi finals between the sides plus the Benson Hedges Super Cup Final in 1999 Michael Klinger said I have travelled a long way for a day s work but it has been a great day for the club and the players I think the bowlers really won it for us Yorkshire got off to a flier but to contain them to 263 was a great effort and it meant we had to take less risks than if we were chasing a bigger score In helping to get us over the line in a semi final I must rate this as one of my best innings To play at Lord s in a final has to be up there and it has been a pretty

  • Kent v Gloucestershire | Gloucestershire Cricket
    Play finally got underway at 5pm when the visitors elected to bowl after winning the delayed toss yet within five minutes match umpires David Millns and Paul Baldwin asked for the floodlights to go on However high wind speeds prevented use of the retractable pylons under health and safety regulations and Kent were made to bat on Despite the blowy and gloomy conditions Kent opener Daniel Bell Drummond made a breezy start by taking four early boundaries two steers through third man a clip through backward square and a crisp off drive all off the bowling of David Payne At the other end Dickson the 24 year old opening bat making his home debut required 17 balls before getting off the mark with a steer for two through square leg Bell Drummond 22 departed when his late decision to shoulder arms at an in ducker from left arm quick bowler Payne left him susceptible to the lbw shout that immediately followed to make it 24 for one To Bell Drummond s chagrin the other players followed him off for a seven minute break for yet another shower and the loss of a further over s play Dickson re emerged after the interval and in tandem with Joe Denly batted out the final eight overs of the without any further alarm There had been no play in the opening two sessions at The Spitfire Ground St Lawrence after overnight rain and blustery morning showers delayed the start for six and a half hours Scorecard Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to bowl Kent Daniel Bell Drummond Joseph Denly Sean Dickson Sam Northeast Darren Stevens Alexander Blake Ryan Davies Matthew Coles Mitchell Claydon Adam Riley Matthew Hunn Gloucestershire William Tavare Christopher Dent Gareth Roderick Hamish Marshall Benny Howell Kieran Noema Barnett Jack

  • Gloucestershire win Royal London One-Day Cup | Gloucestershire Cricket
    Dent and Roderick put on a bright partnership of 40 before Dent 22 off 20 balls who had looked in fine touch drilled a full ball from Dernbach straight at Azhar Mahmood at mid off for a comfortable catch Roderick battled hard but found scoring increasingly difficult in the face of a disciplined Surrey attack and a testing wicket He went 15 overs without a boundary before breaking the lull with a cover drive off Sam Curran in the 16 th over Marshall 18 had also found runs hard to come by and he was stumped trying to force the pace off offspinner Gareth Batty 1 43 Veteran Pakistani allrounder Mahmood 2 28 was proving a handful and bowled both Benny Howell 9 and Roderick 39 with balls that nipped back in off the seam down the famous Lord s slope to make it 108 4 in the 25 th In his last ever match Geraint Jones had been greeted with a warm reception from both sets of supporters And together with Tom Smith he set about watchfully rebuilding the innings The pair put on 52 before Smith 20 was run out by Dernbach with the score on 160 This brought Jack Taylor to the crease Prior to the final he had the highest strike rate of any player with over 100 runs in this year s competition and he set about maintaining that record He ignited the innings with some powerful hitting including consecutive sixes into the Mound Stand as Glos plundered 20 off Tom Curran in the 45 th over But Taylor s brilliant cameo of 35 off just 26 balls came to an end in the following over when he found Sam Curran at backward point off Dernbach for to make it 209 7 Jones brought up his 50 in the 48 th over with a boundary off Dernbach through third man and celebrated by waving his bat to his family in the crowd But he became the first wicket of Dernbach s hat trick next ball when he was bowled by a yorker with the score on 220 Next up was Craig Miles who was well caught by Wilson diving down leg side to snaffle an inside edge Dernbach became only the third man to take a hat trick in a Lord s final in controversial fashion as David Payne was adjudged LBW to a slower ball that him in the midriff TV replays suggested it wouldn t have gone on to hit the stumps but the decision was given sparking wild celebrations from the former England man Defending 220 Glos needed to start well and did so with fine opening bursts from Payne and James Fuller The latter was particularly impressive recovering from being hit for four first ball to finish with 2 34 including the key early wickets of Roy 11 and Davies 13 That made it 42 2 and brought Rory Burns in to join Kumar Sangakarra But after a patient partnership they

pulling a ball from Alex Gidman over fine leg for six Newton had moved to 39 by the tenth over of the day when caught at backward point by Jack Taylor off Benny Howell to make the score 149 4 Wakely unbeaten on 23 overnight looked in good touch as he was joined by Andrew Hall who was given a life on 18 when dropped by Dent at second slip off David Payne The pair had added 77 by lunch which was taken with Northants 226 4 Wakely had moved to 80 having reached his half century off 113 balls with 8 fours Hall was 27 not out at the interval but could add only a single in the afternoon session

count to 11 It was 268 6 when the second new ball became due and not surprisingly Klinger opted to take it immediately Payne was the bowler to capitalise as David Murphy was caught by diving wicketkeeper Cameron Herring for 16 and three balls later David Willey had his middle stump uprooted to fall for a duck The Northants lead was 91 but their tail wagged as Crook joined Middlebrook to produce the most attacking batting of the day Middlebrook hit 8 fours in reaching a 72 ball half century while Crook also punished anything loose By tea they had taken the score to 353 8 earning Northants a third and fourth batting point in the process with a series of well timed attacking strokes Middlebrook was unbeaten on 62 while Crook had hit 6 fours in his 35 not out The final session saw Middlebrook caught behind off Jack Taylor s off spin without adding to his score But last man Copeland then contributed 27 not out to a last wicket stand of 46 with Crook Will Gidman claimed his fourth wicket when Crook chipped a catch to Chris Dent at mid wicket having made a valuable 53 off 78 balls with 8 fours Gloucestershire were left facing an awkward last hour of batting So it proved as Klinger got an outside edge pushing forward to Copeland But Chris Dent was unbeaten on 27 as he and Dan Housego saw their team to the close Day One Cameron Herring top scored with 43 in his first LV County Championship innings as Gloucestershire were bowled out for 192 on the opening day against Northants at Bristol The 18 year old wicketkeeper batted for an hour and 42 minutes to bolster his side s total as David Willey 4 71 Steven Crook 3 47 and James Middlebrook 2 4 earned the visitors maximum bowling points By the close Northants had replied with 107 3 to trail by 85 runs after a fascinating day ds cricket Gloucestershire skipper Michael Klinger elected to bat on an overcast morning when winning the toss and saw conditions favour the Northants seamers who moved the ball in the air and off the pitch It was 7 1 in the fifth over when Chris Dent was caught at second slip by David Sales off a back foot defensive shot to give Willey his first wicket That became 9 2 as Dan Housego was bowled off stump by left armer Willey for two as he pushed forward Klinger himself battled away for 62 balls striking 3 fours before he was caught behind playing forward to Steven Crook for 23 to make it 50 3 Seven runs had been added when Alex Gidman was pouched at first slip by Andrew Hall off Crook having made 20 Lunch was taken with Gloucestershire 70 5 after Hamish Marshall was caught behind off Willey for eight in the final over before the interval Will Gidman was first to go in the afternoon session offering a second catch to Sales in the slips to give Willey his fourth wicket with the total on 90 Benny Howell looked in good form as he brought the hundred up with a flashing shot through the covers off Willey and followed up with another boundary to the same region off the next ball Howell also hit a top edged six off Crook before being bowled by the same bowler pushing forward for 31 to make the score 111 7 Jack Taylor was dropped on 17 by Trent Copeland at third slip off Crook and brought up the 150 with a square driven four off Hall Herring had survived a chancey first scoring shot off Willey which brought him three runs but visibly grew in confidence as he adjusted to conditions The diminutive youngster pulled Crook for a meaty boundary as well as producing some well timed drives He and Taylor had added 43 when off spinner James Middlebrook was introduced into the Northants attack He accounted for Taylor with the score on 158 as the batsman skied a catch to mid off having faced 42 balls and hit 4 fours in his bright 31 Then David Payne was well stumped by David Murphy off the medium pace of Hall without scoring From 159 9 last man Liam Norwell helped Herring add 33 valuable runs his contribution being 8 not out Herring was last man out stumped advancing down the track to Middlebrook having his 8 fours in his 81 ball innings The teenager s good day continued when he broke an opening stand of 42 for Northants diving to his right to catch Kyle Coetzer off Will Gidman for 24 David Sales then pulled a short ball from Liam Norwell straight to Dan Housego at mid wicket to depart

    second day at the County Ground Unbeaten on 74 overnight but with his side still in trouble at 165 for eight the skipper was aided by tailenders Danny Briggs and James Tomlinson as he moved to a richly deserved and tactically brilliant hundred off 221 balls with 12 fours Briggs contributed a maiden Championship half century to a total of 264 for nine while Tomlinson ensured Adams reached three figures by surviving 47 balls for his one not out Rain prevented any play after lunch which was reached with Adams 129 not out and set to carry his bat in an innings which had looked in tatters at 97 for eight on day one The partnership of 128 in 37 1 overs between Adams and Briggs was a Hampshire record for the ninth wicket against Gloucestershire beating the 112 stand shared by Tim Tremlett and Chris Smith at Cheltenham in 1986 Briggs was the early aggressor as he looked to build on an overnight 25 and he soon helped a short delivery from Craig Miles over fine leg for six The left arm spinner soon eclipsed his previous highest Championship score of 36 and moved confidently to 50 off 109 balls with seven fours Adams was more watchful and appeared to survive a chance to wicketkeeper Cameron Herring off Benny Howell when on 76 Other than that there were few errors from the opener who blossomed as the morning session developed and lifted Howell over long off for six to celebrate an unlikely second batting point Even the new ball taken at 232 for nine failed to inspire the Gloucestershire bowlers although Alex Gidman did remove Briggs to a juggling catch at mid wicket by Chris Dent with his first delivery of the innings Brother Will Gidman did not take the field for Gloucestershire after suffering an ankle injury on the first day and is not expected to bowl again in the match having taken two for 14 from nine overs The home side already hit by injuries to seamers Ian Saxelby James Fuller Liam Norwell and Paul Muchall could ill afford another problem and their depleted attack endured a frustrating morning A blustery cold wind made conditions wintry and the rain became harder as the afternoon progressed forcing umpires Jeff Evans and Richard Illingworth to abandon any prospect of further play at 4 45pm Day 1 Jimmy Adams came to Hampshire s rescue with a gutsy 74 not out as his side were reduced to 165 for eight before rain ended the opening day at Bristol At one point the visitors were 97 8 but Danny Briggs 25 not out joined skipper Adams in a fighting ninth wicket stand which was unbroken when play finished By then opener Adams had faced 155 balls and hit eight fours having won the toss Will Gidman claimed 2 14 from nine overs before going off with an ankle problem while Craig Miles 3 44 and Jack Taylor 2 20 helped Gloucestershire take
