Yorkshire beat Gloucestershire by 6 wkts

Yorkshire comfortably chased down a target of 202 for a six-wicket victory in their FP Trophy quarter-final against Gloucestershire.

Half-centuries from Craig White and Jacques Rudolph saw the Tykes home with 5.5 overs to spare at Bristol.

Opening batsman White set the tone of the run chase with a 107-ball 55, laying the platform for Rudolph to finish the job with a more attractive 53 not out.

The South African left-hander shared an unbroken fifth-wicket stand of 66 with Adam Lyth (38no) to get Yorkshire across the line.

Hoggard returns

Earlier, Gloucestershire recovered from 50-6 to reach a total of 201 all out after being asked to bat.

Matthew Hoggard (3-26), making his comeback after two-and-a-half weeks out with a broken thumb, accounted for Hamish Marshall (16), Alex Gidman (3) and Marcus North (1) during his opening burst to help put the hosts in deep trouble.

But a partial recovery was instigated by contributions of 54 from Chris Taylor and 71 from Steve Adshead.

Hoggard's new-ball partner Tim Bresnan returned to clean up the tail and finish with figures of 4-31 as Gloucestershire were all out in 45.2 overs.
