Gladiators blast Glamorgan
Twenty20 Cup, Bristol: Gloucestershire 221-7 (20 overs) beat Glamorgan 168-7 (20 overs) by 53 runs

Gloucestershire made a statement of intent for the Twenty20 semi-finals, hitting a competition record 221 in their 53-run victory over Glamorgan.

Craig Spearman led the way with 88 for the Gladiators, who had qualified for the next round before this match.

And there were two wickets apiece form Mike Smith, Ian Harvey and Martyn Ball.
