Match scorecard

Leicestershire struggled after bowling out Gloucestershire for 183 as 15 wickets fell on day one at Cheltenham.

Having decided not to contest the toss, the visitors had Chris Dent caught behind in the first over and reduced Gloucestershire to 69-5 before lunch.

Jack Taylor (51) steadied things before he was bowled by Ben Raine (4-57).

In reply, the Foxes lost Paul Horton lbw to the first ball of the innings but fellow opener Angus Robson (49 not out) guided them to 122-5 at the close.

Gloucestershire, who will go top of Division Two with a victory, will be without captain Gareth Roderick for six weeks because of a broken finger.
