  • Glamorgan v Gloucestershire | Gloucestershire Cricket
    Zimbabwean opening his account by off driving Fuller for three Tom Smith s left arm spin was then introduced at the River End as sunshine bathed the Stadium while Matt Taylor switched to the Cathedral Road End Goodwin twice cover drove the latter before Bragg clipped him through mid wicket as they continued to chisel away at the deficit Smith nearly had Bragg caught off bat pad before Gidman returned and was glanced to long leg as well as being cover driven by Goodwin The light deteriorated and at 6 15pm the players left the field with play being called off a quarter of an hour later Day Two A fine spell of 5 46 by Dean Cosker restricted Gloucestershire to 230 9 and a first innings lead of 85 on an enthralling second day of their LV County Championship match against Glamorgan at the SWALEC Stadium After only 19 4 overs had been possible on day one the second morning began under clearer skies with Graham Wagg surviving the hat trick delivery from David Payne who had removed Murray Goodwin and Mark Wallace with consecutive deliveries the previous afternoon Will Gidman resumed in frugal mood at the Cathedral Road End and with the total on 65 he trapped Jim Allenby leg before for 12 Ruaidhri Smith joined Wagg but their partnership proved a brief one as five runs later the youngster miscued a pull at James Fuller s opening delivery and skied a catch to wicketkeeper Cameron Herring Fuller struck again with the final ball of the over as Cosker after clipping a ball to square leg for two was bowled shouldering arms Wagg and Michael Hogan used the long handle in a defiant last wicket stand from 72 9 and a savage pull by Wagg against Fuller brought up the Glamorgan hundred Wagg launched the seamer over long on for six followed by a nudge for two to bring up the fifty stand and then a scythe through point for another four Next over he completed a 54 ball fifty with a firm on drive Hogan greeted the return of Gidman by bludgeoning him through cover and mid on for a pair of fours But with the total on 145 Matt Taylor ended his merry spree as he edged to third slip Wagg and Hogan were straight back in action after the interval as they took the new ball against Michael Klinger and Chris Dent with the latter nearly departing to his first ball as he prodded Wagg just short of Murray Goodwin at point Dent then on drove Wagg for four before twice striking Hogan through the covers as well as guiding him to backward square leg for further boundaries Klinger was more circumspect and with the total on 31 Wagg made the breakthrough as the visiting captain edged into the safe hands of Stewart Walters at second slip His departure saw Will Tavare join Dent who continued to pepper the boundary rope as he twice despatched

    reduced to 71 5 replying to Gloucestershire s 134 a good contest looked to be developing But Foakes 132 not out and James Foster 91 then dominated the final session with a glut of boundaries and took their side to 305 8 at the close a lead of 171 After another delayed start until midday Gloucestershire resumed their first innings on 104 6 with Chris Dent unbeaten of 47 The opener moved to a battling half century off 105 balls with 9 fours But he lost his overnight partner with the score on 110 as Ian Saxelby was caught at first slip by Alastair Cook off Masters for a single James Fuller helped Dent take the total to 129 scoring 12 before having his stumps scattered by Graham Napier It was 134 9 when Graeme McCarter was bowled by Masters for three and without addition Dent was last man out for 61 caught at slip off Napier looking to cut loose Dent had faced 132 balls and extended his boundary count to ten Without him Gloucestershire would have been looking at a sorry total There was time for only one over of the Essex innings before lunch and Will Gidman bowled a maiden Three balls into the afternoon session came a big moment for Matt Taylor as England captain Cook on four played a loose shot to a wide short ball and guided it straight to McCarter at backward point Ian Saxelby was soon introduced for his first bowl in the Championship since August 2012 And it didn t take the seamer who has been so dogged by injuries long to strike Tom Westley was snapped up by Alex Gidman at first slip having made nine and Gloucestershire s players were quick to celebrate with the happy bowler Saxelby ended a six over spell including three maidens with figures of 1 16 Ravi Bopara was looking threatening on 14 when following a leg side delivery from McCarter and glancing a catch to diving wicketkeeper Cameron Herring That was 59 3 and it became 67 4 when Greg Smith fell for a duck Herring taking a more orthodox catch off McCarter Gloucestershire were right back in the game when Jaik Mickleburgh who had batted well for his 32 fell lbw to Matt Taylor Essex were 71 5 and still 63 runs behind By tea Foster and Foakes had reduced the deficit to 19 with a sound sixth wicket stand It continued after the interval 21 year old Foakes reaching a valuable fifty off 88 balls with 4 fours Michael Klinger spilled a tough chance offered by Foakes on 66 diving to his right at mid wicket off Fuller with Essex 170 5 It was the only piece of fortune the youngster needed to move to his second Championship century off 128 balls with 12 fours He reached it with a boundary off Chris Dent through the off side By then Foster had reached a 97 ball half century and together the

    hosts to 118 6 in reply Dunn who celebrated his 22nd birthday on Monday took 5 48 to eclipse his haul at Derby in 2011 when his side dismissed Derbyshire in the second innings for 99 during a seven wicket victory But any hopes of a similarly comfortable win were soon dispelled as Fuller took four wickets to reduce the hosts to 62 6 with Zafar Ansari having also retired hurt before Jason Roy and Chris Tremlett steadied things down to reach 118 for no further loss by the close a deficit of 50 Dunn made the first breakthrough in the game s third over Chris Dent rapped on the pads by one that swung late but was denied a second when Will Tavare was dropped second ball by Roy in the slips Tavare was put down again on 30 Ansari the guilty party at square leg and made sure the mistakes were punished with a valuable half century He combined with Michael Klinger to bring up a fifty partnership after the Gloucestershire skipper had taken issue with the red sponsorship boards in the background that were preventing him from picking up Tremlett s deliveries Klinger eventually departed for 24 in the 16th over edging Tom Curran behind to Gary Wilson who had taken over the gloves to allow Steven Davies to concentrate on his batting There was much amusement when Tavare was denied a four off Dunn s bowling when the ball struck a pigeon in the outfield stopping the ball reaching the rope But aside from endangering London s wildlife Tavare and Alex Gidman appeared comfortable as they brought up their side s hundred However right on the lunch interval Gidman became Dunn s second lbw victim after making 13 In the afternoon Dunn s pace was too much for Hamish Marshall whose off stump was dislodged by a superb yorker Tavare went to his fifty but he was then involved as three Gloucestershire wickets falling for just four runs First Curran snared Benny Howell for three with a thick edge well taken by Graeme Smith at slip Tavare went in the next over for 59 with the score still on 130 Smith again doing the job in the slips after Tim Linley had found the edge Ian Saxelby then fell for three edging an outswinger from Linley behind to Wilson who took a good catch low to his right Cameron Herring and Fuller 17 not out put on 25 for the eighth wicket the third highest partnership of Gloucestershire s innings before the former became Tremlett s second first class scalp of the season Herring s thick edge flew to gully where Rory Burns took a fantastic diving catch to his left Dunn then completed his five for with the wickets of Graeme McCarter one and Matt Taylor two as Surrey appeared to have put themselves in a strong position when tea was taken Their response faltered as early as the third over when Fuller removed both

    Kieswetter had been tied down but eventually reached his fifty off 43 balls Somerset needed a big finish to their innings and Lewis Gregory took a four and a six off the penultimate over bowled by Fuller Again Gloucestershire struck back as Norwell had a frustrated Kieswetter caught at short fine leg for 55 and Gregory taken at backward point for 20 Only three came off the final over as Alfonso Thomas was run out off the final ball Trescothick s night went from bad to worse as the hosts chased a reachable target The Somerset skipper spilled a straightforward slip chance offered by opposite number Michael Klinger off Dirk Nannes before he had scored Thomas than conceded 13 from his first over Newcomer Nannes was more impressive and broke through with the total om 19 as Chris Dent on two gloved a leg side catch to Kieswetter attempting a pull shot Gregory then struck twice in the fourth over having Klinger on 17 brilliantly caught by the diving George Dockrell at third man edging a drive and Alex Gidman taken at mid on by Trego an equally athletic effort diving forward At 23 3 Gloucestershire had to regroup Somerset were in generous mood as Kieswetter dropped Ian Cockbain on nought and the batsman was given another life by Hildreth at slip on five Gregory the unlucky bowler on each occasion After six overs the home side were 42 3 Then Trego struck for the first time as Cockbain miscued a pull shot to Max Waller at long on Waller was also involved in the next three wickets this time as the successful bowler In the tenth over as Howell chipped a return catch and departed for 12 In his next over Waller pinned Gareth Roderick lbw for three and Gloucestershire s fading hopes rested with Marshall who moved to fifty off 35 balls with his seventh four He became Waller s third victim having moved to 54 leg before attempting to sweep Fuller hit Gregory over mid wicket for six but when he was caught behind off a wide ball from Nannes Somerset were almost home Two wickets in the 19th over bowled by Nannes sealed Gloucestershire s fate as they were bowled out for a disappointing 138 Scorecard Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to bowl Gloucestershire Michael Klinger Christopher Dent Alex Gidman Hamish Marshall Ian Cockbain Benny Howell Gareth Roderick James Fuller Tom Smith Graeme McCarter Liam Norwell Somerset Marcus Trescothick Craig Kieswetter Peter Trego Alviro Petersen James Hildreth Nick Compton Lewis Gregory Max Waller Alfonso Thomas George Dockrell Dirk Nannes Somerset win by 18 runs How out Runs Minutes Balls 4s 6s Marcus Trescothick Caught Liam Norwell Bowled James Fuller 0 1 1 0 0 Craig Kieswetter Caught James Fuller Bowled Liam Norwell 55 82 48 3 1 Peter Trego Caught Gareth Roderick Bowled James Fuller 8 9 8 2 0 Alviro Petersen Caught Hamish Marshall Bowled Graeme McCarter 51 43 36 4 2 James Hildreth

    added before last man Doug Bollinger edged Fuller to give Roderick his fifth catch of the innings It was the fifth duck registered by a Kent batsman Gidman who barely bowled a bad ball finished with the economical figures of 4 14 from 12 overs while Fuller returned 4 42 from 14 overs Gloucestershire led by a healthy 138 runs Still the wickets tumbled at the start of the hosts second innings Michael Klinger fell leg before to Mitchell Claydon for four in only the second over Chris Dent got an inside edge onto his stumps from Darren Stevens first ball of the innings at the start of the tenth over and went for eight with the total on 29 Will Tavare looked more assured than most moving to 27 but then he was pinned lbw by a Stevens inswinger and at 58 3 Gloucestershire s lead was less than 200 Alex Gidman and Hamish Marshall set about batting Kent out of the game and by tea had added 50 The interval was reached with Gidman one short of a half century Three balls after the restart he reached fifty off 77 balls with 7 fours Marshall followed to the same landmark off 110 deliveries with 7 fours soon after the century partnership had been brought up in 31 overs Gidman s hopes of a second Championship century of the season ended on 85 when he top edged a pull shot off Stevens and was caught by Ball running towards the boundary from mid wicket He had faced 128 balls and extended his boundary county to ten Gloucestershire were 331 ahead By the close they had extended the advantage to 351 with six wickets still in hand and look well placed with two days still to go Marshall was unbeaten on 66 with Gareth Roderick on 13 Day One Bowlers dominated in bright sunshine on the opening day of the LV County Championship match at Bristol as 16 wickets fell despite ideal looking batting conditions Gloucestershire made a poor start after winning the toss Michael Klinger had already survived a confident appeal for a catch behind when bowled off an inside edge by a wide delivery from Mitchell Claydon for 12 Will Tavare and Chris Dent were watchful in defence and the score had risen to only 23 in the 14th over when Tavare on one was pinned lbw by Claydon moving across his stumps to aim through the leg side Dent followed for seven in the next over caught and bowled by Darren Stevens off a leading edge At 23 3 Gloucestershire s hopes of a big score were already fading Alex Gidman and Hamish Marshall looked to be positive and added 41 in good time But just when it seemed the two experienced players were building a meaningful stand Gidman picked out the fielder at short mid wicket to give Adam Ball a wicket It was 82 4 at lunch with Marshall unbeaten on 21 and Gareth Roderick on 17 The pair batted comfortably after the interval and had added 75 for the fifth wicket in 17 overs when Marshall was bowled by off spinner Adam Riley looking to defend off the back foot Roderick marked his first Championship innings of the season by moving to an impressive half century off 59 balls with 7 fours But he too failed to go on to the sort of contribution his side needed edging Doug Bollinger to Stevens at first slip having made 59 At 181 6 the hosts needed to reach tea without further mishap Instead Benny Howell on eight was run out by Claydon throwing to the bowler s end from point as he responded to Gidman s call for a single Gidman was unbeaten on 31 at tea with his side 204 7 One batting point had been claimed but it did not look a happy position given the warm sunshine and benign looking pitch And things got worst immediately after the break Gidman went to cut a ball from Riley and only succeeded in edging the ball onto his stumps Hopes that James Fuller might come to the rescue with a late blitz ended when he attempted to upper cut a short ball from Bollinger and holed out to deep point having made 13 It was left to Tom Smith and last man Matt Taylor to try and secure a second batting point from 229 9 They did so with some sensible batting as the second new ball approached It wasn t needed as Riley picked up this third wicket Smith caught behind aiming to cut having contributed a valuable 30 The last wicket added 23 runs and Gloucestershire s total of 252 looked below par With that in mind the home side needed a good start with the ball Fuller provided it in the first over of Kent s reply as Rob Key was caught behind pushing forward Will Gidman followed up in the next over as Daniel Bell Drummond was leg before for nought and with Kent 2 2 Gloucestershire s total was looking better by the minute That was certainly the case when Sam Northeast was brilliantly caught by the diving Roderick down the leg side off Fuller for a single and Brendan Nash departed for the third duck of the innings caught by Alex Gidman at first slip off brother Will Kent were 2 4 at the end of the fourth over and in disarray That became 17 5 when Stevens was pinned lbw by a full delivery from Fuller Matt Taylor replaced Gidman at the Ashley Down Road End and soon had Ben Harmison caught behind for eight to make the score 27 6 Kent stumbled to 33 6 at the close Fuller had figures of 3 23 from seven overs Gidman 2 1 from four and Taylor 1 3 from three Scorecard Gloucestershire won the toss and elected to bat Gloucestershire Michael Klinger Christopher Dent William Tavare Alex Gidman Hamish

    that Elstone 23 brought up his first 50 in only his second first class innings and moved on to 63 before he was trapped lbw by Will Gidman bringing an end to a 158 ball knock His partnership with Wainwright had taken the score to 223 and Wainwright kept the score ticking on past the 250 mark Tim Groenewald chipped in with a useful 17 from 20 balls before becoming Gidman s fourth wicket of the innings the all rounder finishing with 4 50 Rain prevented Gloucestershire s reply from getting off the ground with openers Michael Klinger and Chris Dent on 12 and eight respectively at stumps Day One In form Will Gidman and Benny Howell took two wickets apiece as Gloucestershire enjoyed much the better of a rain affected first day against Derbyshire Play did not start until after lunch but visiting Gloucestershire made the most of the 71 overs that were available as they reduced the home side to 166 6 at stumps While most Derbyshire s batsmen made starts none managed to push on with opener Paul Borrington top scoring with 42 and captain Wayne Madsen contributing 33 before both fell with the score on 78 All rounder Scott Elstone was unbeaten on 36 at the close but it was in the main a day dominated by the ball after Gloucestershire had won the toss and opted to field The west country side are missing three key pacemen through injury but in Will Gidman they have a bowler in fine form He needed just six deliveries to make the breakthrough as he sent back Stephen Moore for one caught by his brother Alex at first slip Will Gidman who claimed a seven wicket haul in Gloucestershire s 290 run win over Kent last time out also sent back the dangerous Madsen caught by former England wicketkeeper Geraint Jones on his debut after joining on loan from Kent That came soon after Borrington had been run out attempting a third run as Division Two s bottom side Derbyshire slumped to 78 3 Borrington s departure ended a promising 77 run stand with his skipper and brought Marcus North drafted in to cover for Shivnarine Chanderpaul to the wicket for his first Championship appearance for the county since 2006 The veteran Australian was in scintillating form during his first short stint with Derbyshire scoring 465 runs at an average of 93 But he could only make 11 before he shouldered arms to Howell and saw his stumps scattered Howell also made the next breakthrough having Alex Hughes caught by James Fuller at mid wicket for 16 to make it 123 5 Derbyshire wicketkeeper Gareth Cross sought to counter attack but after hitting Tom Smith for a straight six he was trapped lbw by Fuller having struck the bowler for successive boundaries off his previous two balls That proved to be the final wicket of the day for Gloucestershire although they almost snared Elstone before the close as well
