Match scorecard

Chris Dent's magnificent 63 not out helped Gloucestershire to a thumping 10-wicket victory over Glamorgan.

Glamorgan were floundering on 31-5 in the sixth over, but a 37-run stand between Marcus North (35) and Nick James (27) improved their chances.

But they equalled their county's second lowest Twenty20 total with 98-9, as David Payne and Ed Young took three wickets apiece for Gloucestershire.

And Dent and Michael Klinger (35) eased Gloucestershire home in the 13th over.

Opener Dent's impressive 43-ball knock included eight fours and two sixes, and gives Gloucestershire only their second win in the Midlands, Wales and West Group this season.

However, they remain four points off third-placed Glamorgan, whose own hopes of reaching the quarter-finals were dented by the defeat at Cheltenham.
