Gloucestershire batted brilliantly to set up an excellent victory on day one of the Cheltenham Festival.
Yorkshire - previously undefeated in the Cyldesdale Bank 40 League - are a main contender to qualify from Group B. Gloucestershire batted them under intense pressure & then blew out four wickets in five overs to take a vice-grip of the game.
Chris Taylor picked up from a great platform presented by Alex Gidman and James Franklin to make 83 not out as the home side posted their best 40-over score this season.
Adam Lythe responded for the visitors with 84 very attractive runs but he was the only top-order player to get among the runs & once Anthony McGrath's resistance was ended, Yorkshire petered out to lose comfortable.
