  • Leicestershire v Gloucestershire | Gloucestershire Cricket
    in for a second spell down the hill and after bowling 14 dots on the trot to Klinger and Marshall 5 28b the latter batsman edged and Jigar Naik took a great catch at first slip Buck then beat Klinger s outside edge with a couple of crackers as he sent down a fourth consecutive maiden A counter attack followed with 15 runs coming in the space of two overs Seven came off Naik s first over as Jones hit over extra cover for three before Klinger punched past mid on for four Jones pulled Buck for four to end the seamer s sequence of 25 scoreless deliveries and the keeper then cut between two slips and two gullies to the third man boundary A change of angle worked a treat as Rob Taylor who replaced Buck had the gritty Klinger 37 98b held by Naik at slip Buck returned from the Pavilion End for the lunch over and Jones drove aerially for four as Gloucestershire went in on 95 4 The visitors immediately took the attack to the bowlers as Will Gidman swept Naik for four to register the 100 Buck replaced the off spinner after one over and Jones scored eighteen off his first over back including a drive through mid wicket for four and two pulled sixes The paceman did not let it affect him he responded with a maiden The quickfire knock of Jones continued as he pulled Wyatt for four and six to move to 49 Jones brought up a 38 ball half century with a sixth four he also hit those three aforementioned sixes and the latest boundary also brought up the 50 partnership with Will Gidman The luckless Wyatt was edged for four by Will Gidman who produced lap sweeps in Naik s second over back to pick up four and two respectively Jones drove Wyatt either side of the wicket for a brace of fours and the seamer then had to leave the field through injury Jones guided and pulled Rob Taylor for four before having an escape on 78 The batsman lofted Naik 16 5 45 1 high to substitute Wells in the deep but the chance went to ground and the ball rolled for four to rub salt into the wounds As so often happens the next delivery was then driven to the ropes A leg bye extended the alliance into three figures and Jones flicked away to move into the nineties But Naik picked up a deserved success as the batsman attempted to sweep a quicker delivery and fell leg before seven runs short of his century Will Gidman collected three to take the score to 200 and the left hander then pulled and drove to the ropes Benny Howell struck Naik for a straight six before delicately cutting the next ball for four His breezy 14 18b came to an end as Buck held on to a great return catch Gloucestershire were 220 6 at that point and Will Gidman and Tom Smith added a further 25 before tea Will Gidman drove the first ball of the final session from Buck for four to move to within three of fifty but Tom Smith was then pinned right in front to Taylor s first delivery Tavaré came in at nine with a runner and guided Gloucestershire to a second batting point But after surviving an appeal for lbw he fell to Taylor s next delivery in the same manner Will Gidman progressed to a 119 ball fifty 7 4 to add to his five for but was left stranded Taylor completed his five for by Matt Taylor 3 6b to nick to Niall O Brien while Buck wrapped up the innings with a snorter as Norwell fended his first ball to the keeper In the Leicestershire second innings Greg Smith drove and pulled for four before umpires David Millns and Martin Saggers took the players went off for bad light with the game evenly poised Rain then followed as the day was abandoned Other bowling figures for Leicestershire Shreck 3 1 7 0 Josh Cobb 2 0 3 0 Robson 1 0 6 0 Day 3 No play because of rain Day Four Michael Klinger hit a stunning undefeated 129 as Gloucestershire claimed a dramatic nine wicket win over Leicestershire in LV County Championship Division Two After all play was lost due to rain on day three at Grace Road home skipper Ramnaresh Sarwan made a sporting declaration on Thursday setting Gloucestershire a target of 251 in 39 overs And Klinger s 124 ball effort coupled with a belligerent unbeaten 78 off 59 balls from Benny Howell saw the visitors home and left Leicestershire still searching for a first win of the season Leicestershire started the day 12 without loss a lead of 21 but soon lost their first wicket as Geraint Jones took a catch behind off the bowling of Liam Norwell to remove Greg Smith for 10 Ned Eckersley then fell for 34 as Jones took another catch behind the stumps this time off Will Gidman who claimed his 31st wicket of the season Sarwan could only add 24 before Howell dismissed him Jones taking his third catch of the innings Opener Angus Robson was proving the lynchpin of the Leicestershire innings and looked on target for a maiden first class century before Tom Smith trapped him lbw for 96 That was still two runs better than his previous best on the same day that brother Sam was selected in the England squad for the first Test against Sri Lanka Josh Cobb then brought up his 50 off 77 balls but when Rob Taylor 24 went next ball to hand Smith his second wicket the innings was declared on 241 for five Gloucestershire got off to a flying start with two Klinger fours in a 10 run first over and they maintained a good pace with the skipper bringing up his 50 off just 54 balls Alex

  • Hampshire v Gloucestershire | Gloucestershire Cricket
    in 5 4 overs with Australian Glenn Maxwell Gloucestershire responded positively with openers Klinger and Alex Gidman lashing 61 from the first eight overs but the turning point came when spinner Will Smith dismissed them both in the ninth over Hampshire had the upper hand and the match looked to be all over as their opponents slumped to 121 for seven with the dismissal of Jack Taylor It was then that Howell discarded by Hampshire three years ago was joined by Tom Smith in an eighth wicket partnership which so nearly turned the match on its head The pair put on 46 in four overs with Howell particularly severe on the bowling in an innings of 50 compiled from only 22 balls and including four sixes and two fours Three of the sixes came off Matt Coles and the other off left arm seamer Chris Wood Gloucestershire required 43 from three overs 28 from two and then 20 from Abbott s fourth over Tom Smith raised hopes of a shock result by hitting the first three deliveries for fours But with seven needed off the last two balls Howell was run out by Coles while going for a second Hampshire s nerve held but Gloucestershire will regret a mid innings collapse which at one stage put the required run rate up to more than 12 an over Earlier Hampshire had recovered from a stodgy start thanks to their captain James Vince who hit 39 from 20 balls and then Maxwell and Adams Maxwell hit two sixes in an over from off spinner Taylor before being bowled by Smith attempting to pull but Adams posted his best competition score of the season facing 46 balls and striking five fours and two sixes Hampshire failed to accelerate near the end against David

  • Gloucestershire v Glamorgan | Gloucestershire Cricket
    the morning and then hopefully our bowlers can do some damage Day Two Glamorgan openers Jacques Rudolph and Will Bragg made hay in the West country sunshine as the LV County Championship match with Gloucestershire at Bristol headed in the direction of a high scoring draw on the second day After the hosts had been bowled out for 391 from an overnight 308 for five Rudolph and Bragg put together a stand of 151 in 41 3 overs on a frustratingly bland pitch before Bragg fell for 67 Rudolph went on to end the day unbeaten on 108 having reached his second century in successive Championship games off 152 balls with 15 fours and a six At 209 for two Glamorgan looked well placed to at least avoid defeat Earlier Michael Hogan had finished with four for 57 from 27 overs of wholehearted pace bowling which helped restrict Gloucestershire to three batting points Benny Howell s 47 was the only sizable contribution from their late order The morning session began with the hosts needing 42 from 14 overs to take a fourth bonus point Their hopes of scoring quickly enough to achieve it were soon hit by a needless run out Will Gidman played the ball firmly to mid on and set off for a single that wasn t there Tom Smith responded belatedly to the call but was comfortably beaten by Hogan s throw and departed for 16 When Gidman was caught behind off Jim Allenby for 20 it brought 17 year old debutant Patrick Grieshaber to the crease The young wicketkeeper acquitted himself well making ten off 44 balls and helping Howell add 36 valuable runs but the fourth batting point was not secured as the hosts closed the 110 th over on 329 for seven Grieshaber was caught at slip trying to force Dean Cosker off the back foot and at lunch Gloucestershire were 385 for eight with Howell their main hope of reaching 400 They were bowled out nine runs short Howell edging Hogan to slip and Matt Taylor lofting a catch to long off to give Cosker a second wicket The pitch was offering little assistance to any type of bowling and Gloucestershire s attack were soon finding it no easier than their Glamorgan counterparts Rudolph and Bragg took the visitors reply to 78 off 26 overs by tea Rudolph surviving one close shave when he top edged a pull shot off Liam Norwell just short of Smith at deep square Grieshaber was presented with his Gloucestershire county cap during the tea interval After the break Rudolph was first to his half century off 81 balls with 9 fours Bragg followed to the same landmark having faced 97 deliveries and hit seven boundaries the partnership having reached 114 at that point It was finally broken when Bragg chipped a catch to mid wicket off left arm spinner Smith who claimed a second victim when Mark Wallace on 17 was snapped up by Will Tavare at short leg By then the pitch was the main talking point Glamorgan coach Toby Radford said It was a funny looking wicket when we examined at the start with a lot of grass on it yet very dry and cracked We didn t really know how it was going to play but it has turned out a lot flatter than you would have thought considering the amount of grass The bowlers have really had to toil to get any wickets and I thought ours stuck to their task well Gloucestershire skipper Hamish Marshall said We feel it is one of those pitches where the best time to bat is the first couple of days If the weather stays the same we hope some deterioration will kick in Day One Stand in skipper Hamish Marshall led from the front with his second century of the season as injury hit Gloucestershire ran up 308 for five in glorious sunshine on the opening day of the LV County Championship match with Glamorgan at Bristol Having won an important toss the experienced former New Zealand Test batsman leading his side in the absence of Michael Klinger made 109 hitting a six over long on off Andrew Salter and 7 fours Despite the best efforts of Michael Hogan who bowled with great heart on an unhelpful pitch to claim three for 39 from 19 overs Glamorgan were unable to prevent their hosts taking a grip on the game Will Tavare hit a solid 77 Ian Cockbain 51 and Alex Gidman 26 in a determined Gloucestershire batting effort The hosts had to rule out Klinger before the start with a foot injury sustained in the previous evening s NatWest T20 Blast game against Hampshire and then lost wicketkeeper Cameron Herring to a damaged finger sustained in the warm up Seventeen year old Academy keeper Patrick Grieshaber a Jack Russell discovery from Marshfield near Bath had to be summoned from local club cricket and registered with the ECB to play for the first XI in order to make his debut It was as well Marshall won the toss and elected to bat giving Grieshaber a product of Gloucestershire s schoolboy set up time to reach the ground before he was required The home side needed a calming influence after the injury setbacks and the early loss of Chris Dent who departed for two to a catch at square leg off Hogan They found it in the unflappable Tavare who is making a big impression in his debut season The nephew of former England batsman Chris Tavare already has two hundreds to his name and added a half century off 87 balls with 10 fours Alex Gidman survived a big appeal for a bat pad catch at short leg off Dean Cosker before having his stumps scattered playing across a ball from Ruaidhri Smith and falling with the total on 83 Lunch was taken at 98 for two and the early afternoon session produced the most compelling cricket
