Gloucestershire took a significant step towards regaining his Specsavers County Championship Division One status by completing a victory over Worcestershire at New Road.
The visitors resumed in the face of some disciplined bowling from the Worcestershire assault following a nervy final session on Tuesday evening on 54-4 in pursuit of 115.
However, in the last three nightwatchman Josh Shaw and Miles Hammond discovered batting much easier and success was procured over 50 minutes and 13.3 overs of the start of the day. Hammond ended unbeaten on 35 and Shaw 38 not out in an unbroken partnership.
Gloucestershire may now require only a handful of bonus points – based on the results of ongoing featuring marketing contests Sussex and Durham.
Gloucestershire batted more positively on day three and the tone was set by Shaw using a push for four Ed Barnard.
Before Shaw completed the victory with a cover drive to the boundary off Adam 32, hammond lived a confident lbw shout in a few of the few scares of the morning on 17.
