Specsavers County Championship Division Two

Leicestershire 222 and 160 Gloucestershire 368 and 15-0 Gloucestershire win by ten wickets.

LIAM Norwell took the final three wickets in Leicestershire's second innings to finish with a first class career best return of 8-43 as Gloucestershire completed a ten wicket victory at the Fischer County Ground.

His return was the best in the second division of the county championship this season, and also meant the young seamer had taken ten wickets in the match for the second time against Leicestershire this season.

With Leicestershire resuming on 152-7, leading by only eight runs, Gloucestershire's only real concern was the weather, but play started on time, and Norwell made an immediate breakthrough, with a delivery which Matt Pillans edged to George Hankins at third slip.

The end was not long coming as Clint McKay then edged an expansive drive to Gareth Roderick behind the stumps before Dieter Klein edged to Chris Dent at second slip.

Gloucestershire openers Dent and Cameron Bancroft needed just 3.3 overs to score the 15 runs needed for the visitors to complete their third victory of the season, and leave Leicestershire still winless after a hapless performance in which only captain Mark Cosgrove, who hit 170 of the 382 runs the Foxes scored in the match.
