Gloucestershire win by 10 wickets

Gloucs vs Glamorgan

Gloucestershire ease to 10-wicket win over Glamorgan in T20 event

Opener Michael Klinger played a key role as Gloucestershire hammered Glamorgan by 10 wickets in Cheltenham

Gloucestershire kept alive their slim hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the Friends Life T20 competition by hammering a woeful Glamorgan side by 10 wickets in Cheltenham.

In front of a 5,000 sell-out crowd at their college ground, the hosts restricted Glamorgan to just 98-9 from their 20 overs before sealing an easy victory with 43 deliveries to spare.

Glamorgan won the toss and chose to bat with just two of their batsmen scoring more than 10 runs.

Having slipped to 31-5 in the sixth over, the visitors from Wales never recovered and were unable to exert any pressure on the hosts.

Ed Young, making his first appearance for seven weeks due to a broken wrist, claimed an excellent 3-21 from his four overs.

First, Chris Cooke chipped him straight to extra cover before Marcus North's attempt to reverse-sweep was easily caught by Alex Gidman at short third man.

Graeme Wagg also fell victim to Young while David Payne scooped 3-17 - a collection of wickets that included opener Mark Wallace who holed out to mid-on.

In reply, Gloucestershire openers Michael Klinger and Chris Dent eased their team to victory.

Dent led the way with 63 off 43 balls, while Klinger weighed-in with 35 off 34.
