Gloucs win as it happened
Worcestershire 149 all out (46.3 overs) lost to Gloucestershire 150-3 (20.3 overs) by seven wickets

Gloucestershire have won the C&G Trophy by seven wickets after annihilating Worcestershire at Lord's.

It was the quickest victory in a final, achieved in just 20.3 overs.

Australian all-rounder Ian Harvey was instrumental in Gloucestershire's first C&G Trophy win for three years, smashing 61 off 36 balls and taking two wickets.

And ex-Worcestershire player Phil Weston weighed in with 46.

Earlier, Worcs had got off to a flyer, with Vikram Solanki and Anurag Singh notching up 64 for the first wicket.

But Solanki (40) was the victim of a brilliant run-out by Jonty Rhodes and then Worcestershire collapsed through a mixture of good bowling and fielding and poor shot selection.

Latest action:

21st over: Gidman scores the run needed to win the trophy in emphatic style.

20th over: Gidman strokes an on-drive down the ground for another boundary.

19th over: Gidman flicks one away for four.

17th over: Rhodes gets off the mark with a boundary.

16th over: Play is briefly held up by a streaker and the interruption seems to have affected Harvey's concentration as he is stumped by Pipe.
Gloucs: 132-3 (Harvey 61)

15th over: Harvey celebrates an unbeaten half-century of just 30 balls as Gloucs close in on victory.

14th over: Ex-Worcs player Weston falls just short of a half-century as Hall catches him in the slips.
Gloucs: 108-2 (Weston 46)

13th over: Harvey hits another boundary, breaking his bat in the process, as the 100 comes up for Gloucs. He then hits his third consecutive four of the over.

12th over: Pipe believes he has Weston caught behind but umpire John Hampshire shakes his head.

11th over: Gloucs are using the fielding restrictions to perfection as yet another boundary is scored.

10th over: Perfect timing from Harvey as he smashes one down the ground for four and Weston does the same over mid-off.

9th over: Harvey top-edges a Hall delivery but the ball falls to safety as the luck goes with Gloucs.

8th over: Mason replaces Hayward at the Nursery End as Worcs desperately need to curtail runs but Weston punishes a poor delivery for four through the covers. Hall then drops Weston at first slip.

7th over: The 50 comes up in double quick time for Gloucs.

6th over: Hayward is warned after bowling a beamer at Harvey.

5th over: Substitute wicket-keeper Pipe fumbles and gives away four leg-byes.

4th over: Hayward's second over is much tighter as he gives away four runs.

3rd over: Ali bowls a no-ball, which goes for four, and Gloucs are given a free hit as well but then Spearman is caught at mid-off to end an exciting cameo appearance.
Gloucs 30-1 (Spearman 10)

2nd over: Spearman just beats Batty at square leg to register a boundary and a wayward delivery from Hayward is given the right treatment too from Weston.

1st over: James Pipe takes over from the injured Steve Rhodes as wicket-keeper for Worcs. Craig Spearman faces Kabir Ali and a leg-bye gets Gloucs off the mark.

Gloucestershire: WPC Weston, CM Spearman, MGN Windows, JN Rhodes, IJ Harvey, MW Alleyne (capt), RC Russell, APR Gidman, MCJ Ball, J Lewis, AM Smith.

Worcestershire: VS Solanki, A Singh, GA Hick, BF Smith (capt), DA Leatherdale, AJ Hall, GJ Batty, SJ Rhodes, Kabir Ali, MS Mason, M Hayward.
