POST MATCH REACTION

Gloucestershire skipper Kane Williamson told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"We would have liked another 30 runs and then the spinners would have come into play a bit more, but I guess we read the wicket slightly wrong and thought we needed 200 but we'll learn from that."

"To win a match when you've got an under-par total, things have to go your way, you need to take early wickets and the format of the match is almost set out for you. It's a question of whether you can play to it. It didn't come off for us, they got one partnership and that was all it took."
