Gloucs live again; CRICKET.

RELIEVED Gloucestershire are to be given a second chance to defend the NatWest Trophy despite being beaten by neighbours Worcestershire in the third round.

An England and Wales Cricket Board ruling has ordered the New Road match to be replayed because three-wicket victors Worcestershire fielded an ineligible player.

Gloucestershire appealed to the ECB over teenage pace bowler Kabir Ali's place in Worcestershire's side.

They pointed out that the former Warwickshire colt played for the Worcestershire Board XI against Kent in the NatWest on May 2, having already represented the full county side earlier in the season.

Ali, who took 2-45, against Gloucestershire, played in the early-season Benson and Hedges Cup matches for Worcestershire before representing the Board XI.
