Cricket: Taylor marks his return from suspension with two wickets

4:21pm Monday 31st March 2014

JACK Taylor took two wickets on his bowling comeback for Gloucestershire in their three-day friendly against Worcestershire at Bristol.

The off-spinner has remedied his action after being suspended by the ECB last season and finished with figures of 2-39, removing Gareth Andrew and Brett D’Oliveira in the drawn match last week.

There were also two wickets apiece for Liam Norwell, Tom Smith and Matt Taylor as Worcestershire scored 206 in response to Gloucestershire’s first innings total of 353-5.

The hosts declared overnight after Chris Dent hit 86 in a 106-run opening partnership with new signing Will Tavare (41), while Hamish Marshall (83*) and Gareth Roderick (71*) shared an unbroken stand of 145.

Only one ball was managed on the final day due to rain.
