Windies A sign off with win
Tour match, Cheltenham: West Indies A beat Gloucestershire by 44 runs

Gloucestershire crashed to a 44-run one-day defeat and never looked in the hunt after the tourists had posted a commanding total.

Ryan Hinds turned in a man-of-the-match display for the West Indies.

He maintained his side's momentum at a crucial stage in their innings with a fine 68.

Hinds then bowled superbly to take six for 46 as the hosts were bowled out for 235 with five overs unused.

Jeremy Snape top-scored for Gloucestershire with 55 from 77 balls, but apart from Alex Gidman (36) and Matt Windows (41) the home side were always off the pace.

Quickfire Gayle

Earlier, the tourists made 279 all out off 49.4 overs, built on Chris Gayle's quickfire 83 and some impressive strokeplay from the middle order.

First it was Gayle who gave Gloucestershire the runaround.

He plundered 12 fours and a six in his 79-ball knock and had taken the Windies to 160 for four by the time he departed.

Devon Smith (one) and skipper Daren Ganga (eight) both went cheaply.

But Runako Morton hung around long enough for his 41 and then Hinds and Dwayne Bravo both maintained the offensive.

Bravo's 38 came off 43 deliveries, while Hinds went on to make 68 from 86 balls, including five fours and two mighty sixes.

Gloucestershire's 25-year-old medium-pace bowler Roger Sillence was the pick of the home side's bowlers, taking four for 35 off 7.4 overs.

And there were two wickets apiece for Alastair Bressington and James Averis.
