Klinger cracks first ton of season

Michael Klinger ended his wait for a first century of the season in spectacular style by leading Gloucestershire to a nine-wicket victory over Leicestershire in the County Championship.

Klinger capitalised on a risky declaration from Leicestershire captain Ramnaresh Sarwan, who set the visitors 251 to win from 39 overs at Grace Road.

The Australian opener led the way in typical fashion, scoring 129 not out off 124 balls.

He followed it up with a top-score of 70 in Gloucester’s T20 Blast success over Glamorgan.
