Steelbacks suffer shock home defeat

Norhants' hopes of a place in the Twenty20 Cup quarter-finals were jolted by a second straight home defeat.

After winning their first five matches, their defeat by Somerset before the break has now been followed by this two-wicket loss to Gloucestershire.

Again they could only total 133 at Wantage Road, Gemaal Hussain leading the way with a Twenty20 best 3-22.

Grant Hodnett then hit 60 as Gloucestershire got home on 134-8 with one ball to spare.

Gloucestershire had previously only won game in their first six Twenty20 Cup games this season and have nothing to play for.

But Northants, four-times beaten quarter-finalists, are now in a three-way tie with Somerset and Warwickshire, who have played a game more, at the top of the Mids/West/Wales Division with 10 points each.
