Glos hang on for Worcester draw

LVCC: Worcestershire 388 drew with Gloucestershire 245 & 243-7 (PTS: Worcs 10, Glos 5*)

Gloucestershire managed to cling on for a draw at New Road after rain had washed out the majority of the final day.

Play eventually got underway at 3.45pm and horrendous strokes from first James Franklin - hooking to Alexei Kervezee at deep square-leg - and then Chris Taylor - bowled trying to pull - put the visitors under pressure.

Worcestershire were looking to quickly chase down a total but after Vikram Banerjee had been dropped by Vikram Solanki at fourth slip, Banerjee and Jon Lewis stood firm to claim Gloucestershire's first draw of the season.

Bad weather certainly played it's part in this game but Gloucestershire have moved are well-placed to push for promotion in the second half of the season.

*Gloucestershire were deducted two points for a slow over rate in this match.
