LIVE ball-by-ball coverage on www.gloscricketradio.co.uk
Gorgeous hot conditions around the country didn't stop too many captains from bowling first in this latest round of matches. Alex Gidman decided to bat at Derby but Gloucestershire's 242 perhaps suggests that his decision was a difficult one.
Gloucestershire only posted a mediocre total in their first innings on day one at Derby but fought back well in the evening session and need to pick up Chris Rogers cheaply in the morning to be right on top of this match.
