Derbyshire batsman Wayne Madsen hit 150 before Gloucestershire's batsmen rallied on day two at Bristol.

Resuming on 58, Madsen's knock lasted 329 balls before he was stumped off Jack Taylor (4-61), as the visitors moved from 242-3 to 444 all out.

Tom Poynton also made 53 in a seventh-wicket stand of 128 with Madsen.

However, Gloucestershire openers Chris Dent (61 not out) and Cameron Bancroft (41) shared a century stand as they reached 110-1 at stumps.

BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Bob Hunt: "If Gloucestershire can carry on in the third day like they finished the second with their batting, they should get somewhere close to Derbyshire's 444.

"Cameron Bancroft gave a masterclass in leaving the ball outside the off stump, but it eventually proved his undoing as he left one from Thakor.

"Chris Dent is looking self assured though, and the home side will be looking to navigate the first hour successfully. If they do that, there is still a possibility of an interesting final day."
