Gloucestershire earned their first One-Day Cup success as Will Gidman saw them to a three-wicket win over Yorkshire.

All-rounder Gidman made an unbeaten 71 as they reached 193-7 in the 46th over, having bowled out Yorkshire for 192.

Gloucestershire were in trouble on 83-6 before Jack Taylor (38) joined Gidman in a vital partnership of 69.

Yorkshire's total was almost entirely due to a stand of 129 between Adil Rashid (71) and Jack Leaning (56) as seam bowler David Payne took 3-31.

It was a new county record for the sixth-wicket in 50-over cricket, beating the 128 by Anthony McGrath and Gary fellows against Essex in 2002.

Rashid later took 3-43 with his leg-spin, but the home side paid the price for a poor start to the game when they were reduced to 45-5 after opting to bat first.

Gidman (2-28) claimed the wickets of Alex Lees (10) and Kane Williamson (12) as the White Rose county failed to repeat the batting form they showed in piling up 324-7 in Saturday's win over Lancashire.

Failing to use the last 8.2 overs of their innings was negligent, although Tim Bresnan (2-51) did his best to revive them by sending back Hamish Marshall and Chris Dent in successive overs at the start of Gloucestershire's reply.

Skipper Michael Klinger made 37 before hitting a catch to Bresnan at deep cover off Richard Pyrah, but Gidman collected 10 fours in a calm 89-ball innings before a wide from Bresnan brought the game to an anti-climactic end.

Gloucestershire director of cricket John Bracewell:

"The wicket was quite slow and holding a bit and the match turned into a bit of a scrap.

"Leaning and Rashid put on a good partnership which was bound to happen and we faced a respectable, but achievable total.

"We always said this could be a competition for Will Gidman because 50-overs cricket suits his bowling and he showed that it does.

"It was good to beat a class side like Yorkshire who have some excellent outstanding cricketers. To tip them over on their home turf is a good effort."
