Harvey chasing Twenty20 glory
Ian Harvey is aiming to fire Gloucestershire to Twenty20 Cup glory. The county open their Cup bid at Taunton tonight against holders Somerset in confident mood.
They pulled off a fine County Championship win at Leicestershire, and an against-the-odds two-run C &G Trophy victory against Sussex to give themselves a big boost.
Harvey was the first person to score a century in the competition, and is the only player to have scored three hundreds.
The Australian has made more Twenty20 runs than any other batsman, and is looking forward to adding to that record.
"Everyone keeps saying that Twenty20 is my game, and I have had some good days," he said. "I am lucky as I don't have to change the way I play too much, but I have had a bit of luck as well."
Harvey hit an unbeaten 72 at Leicester last week, and is in prime form with the bat.
"It's going well at the moment," he admitted. "But I am working hard on my bowling as well.
"When you are in form you have to make the most of it as it can change quickly.
"We have a tough start against Somerset tonight as they are the holders but a win would be a great boost for us.
"They will be confident, but we will be going to Taunton trying to knock them off their perch."
