In cricket, Gloucestershire will play in front of a sell-out crowd in this evening's T20 blast competition with rivals Somerset.

The home side are currently third in the table with 4 wins from 7 matches.

Australian Michael Klinger is the tournament's top scorer ahead of some more famous names that have been dominating the headlines.

"I certainly can't hit the ball as far as Chris Gayle but if they just trickle over the rope it's enough I suppose. Personally it's been a great tournament and I'm enjoying helping the team win as many games as possible. That's all I'm trying to do - get the team off to some good starts and help us win games".
