Scorecard

Gloucestershire Women bounced back from defeat in their last game with a dominant 10 wicket win over Wiltshire.

The home seam attack of Mollie Robbins (3-19), Helen Cutler (4-12) and Cerys King (3-9) blew the visitors away, bowling them out for 68 in 31 overs.

Skipper Alice Hill and fellow opener Chloe Skelton made short work of the run chase, reaching a revised target of 63 – due to rain – in the 15th over.

The win puts Gloucestershire into second place in their ECB County Championship Group after three matches.

After winning the toss, Glos got off to a great start when Robbins removed opposition captain Lucy Wood without scoring to make it 5-1. The Wilts top order battled hard but found runs difficult to come by in the face of a disciplined start by the home attack. But their dogged determination was undone by Cutler who took four of the next five wickets to finish with a county best of 4-12 from seven overs. From 19-1 Wilts collapsed to 47-9 as the returning Robbins made further inroads supported by King. Glos were held up by a gutsy last wicket stand of 21 before King bowled Daisy Barrow to record her best senior county figures of 3-9 from six overs.

A Gloucestershire victory never looked in doubt as Hill and Skelton calmly accumulated the 63 runs needed inside 15 overs. They brought their 50 partnership up off 70 balls, finishing with 20 and 24 respectively.

Next up for Glos are Buckinghamshire at Marshfield this Sunday (May 26). The match starts at 11am, please come down and support the team if you are able to.
