Time to say goodbye

Gloucestershire celebrate

So eight-time List A champions Gloucestershire have denied the soon-to-be county champions Yorkshire the chance of a double, and reached their first Lord's final since 2004 - when they beat Worcestershire.

They will face either Surrey or Nottinghamshire, who face each other at The Oval tomorrow and you can follow that with our live text commentary from 11:15 BST.

Until then, goodbye.

Post-match quotes

Gloucestershire captain and man-of-the-match Michael Klinger: "It was certainly worth the trip back. I would have felt guilty had I not come back, and I'd like to thank the club for flying me back from Australia.

"I'm going to wait around for two weeks, put myself through a fitness boot camp, have a bit of a break, play a four-day game and play in the final.

 "It's fantastic for the club and the boys deserve it. I think it's our time." 

Yorkshire captain Alex Lees on Sky Sports: "I think we fell probably 50 or 60 runs short. We didn't execute as well as we'd have liked to and in the end we fell short.

"Ryan Sidebottom doesn't play one-day cricket anymore and we've got Jack Brooks but we went for the side that's got us through to the semi-final. We wanted to keep consistency in the team."

YESSSSSS👊🙌 Lords here we come! @maxyklinger and @marshysbenefit absolutely class! sing the song loud boys! #GloriousGlosters 💥


Gloucestershire dropped four catches in their innings, three of them admittedly very difficult, but it did not count against them in the long run, thanks to their captain Michael Klinger.

Yorkshire tried seven bowlers, including England's Adam Lyth and two teenagers, but they just did not have the guile yo upset Klinger's composure with the bat.

He has now scored 532 One-Day Cup runs this season at an average of 132.75 and a strike rate of over 92 and Gloucestershire will be desperate to have him available for the final at Lord's on 19 September, if at all possible.

Great stuff from @Gloscricket today - Lord's awaits! (it's been a while!) #GoGlos #RLODC

Get In @Gloscricket off to @HomeOfCricket for the #RLODC Good work all. looking forward to it. #goglos

So pleased for @Gojones623 and the @Gloscricket boys - a @HomeOfCricket Final to end what has been a fantastic career. #legend #RLODC

Former England wicketkeeper Geraint Jones is set to retire after the final at Lord's.


Gloucestershire captain Michael Klinger has been his side's talisman today, and he smashes a six off Matthew Fisher over long off to give his side victory at Headingley and take his side to a first Lord's final since 2004 where they will face either Surrey or Nottinghamshire.

Yorkshire just could not break the partnership of Klinger and Marshall, who finishes with an unbeaten 78.

Gloucestershire 261-2 (Klinger 131, Marshall 78)

Target 264

Three more to win for Gloucestershire. Michael Klinger will be facing at the start of the 47th over, and could fittingly take his side home to victory.

Dropped catch

Gloucestershire 258-2 - Target 264

That sums up Yorkshire's day. Captain Alex Lees puts down a chance at mid-off from Hamish Marshall. He really should have taken that, not that it matters now.

Gloucestershire 256-2 (Klinger 128, Marshall 77)

Target 264

Huge appeal from Yorkshire, even at this late stage, as Matthew Fisher looks to have Hamish Marshall lbw, but the umpire says the ball was going down the leg-side. The 17-year-old has probably looked the best of Yorkshire's bowlers today, but they've barely looked like taking a wicket since these two came together.

Gloucestershire 251-2 (Klinger 126, Marshall 74)

Target 264

Hamish Marshall and Michael Klinger continue to go about their business efficiently, this time settling for singles instead of the boundary fireworks.

Gloucestershire just need 13 more from six overs. They can start dreaming of Lord's now, surely.

Gloucestershire 246-2 (Klinger 122, Marshall 73)

Target 264

Hamish Marshall and Michael Klinger's partnership is now worth more than 150 runs, and they have pretty much seen their team to Lord's.

Yorkshire's bowling attack - without Ryan Sidebottom, Jack Brooks and Liam Plunkett - has not been up to scratch today. Their desperation is pretty much summed up in Matthew Fisher's lbw appeal when the ball was clearly going down leg-side.

Marshall then dispatches him over the top for four and his side need 18 to win.

Gloucestershire 239-2 (Klinger 120, Marshall 69)

Target 264

Goodness me, Michael Klinger. Yorkshire have brought the field up and the Australian smashes two identical sixes straight down the ground for off young spinner Karl Carver.

This game will be over soon if he continues in that vein.

Gloucestershire 225-2 (Klinger 107, Marshall 68)

Target 264

Matthew Fisher, one of only two Yorkshire bowlers to take a wicket, is back into the attack and Hamish Marshall and Michael Klinger add seven more runs to the total. 

Gloucestershire need just 39 runs to win. You can almost get that in one over, right??

Gloucestershire 218-2 (Klinger 103, Marshall 65)

Target 264

Appeal for a stumping against Hamish Marshall, but the third umpire ruled the New Zealander's foot was grounded. 

We've now reached the end of the second power play. Can this pair lead the visitors home?

Klinger reaches 100

Gloucestershire 215-2 - Target 264

Michael Klinger

Michael Klinger reaches his hundred with two runs. It's his third in the One-Day Cup and eighth in all competitions this summer. His performance looks like taking Gloucestershire to the final.

Gloucestershire 212-2 (Klinger 98, Marshall 64)

Target 264

Michael Klinger is making us wait for his century. He pushes a single to give Marshall the strike, and the former New Zealand international hits a four over mid-wicket off Steven Patterson before another boundary high over mid-on.

This is where Yorkshire's innings crumbled. Can Gloucestershire hold their nerve?

Jack Russell

Ex-Gloucestershire and England wicketkeeper on BBC Radio 5live

I don't think Carver has bowled that badly, but they haven't let him settle. A spinner, on this pitch, could have a key role, but Gloucestershire have played him really well.

Gloucestershire 201-2 (Klinger 97, Marshall 54)

Target 264

We've talked a lot about Michael Klinger in this innings so far, but Hamish Marshall has been equally as important in getting those important singles. He delicately guides the ball into the leg-side off Karl Carver to bring up his half century off 51 balls.

Gloucestershire 194-2 (Klinger 95, Marshall 49)

Target 264

Michael Klinger and Hamish Marshall have put their side in the box seat here, and the former brings up the 100 partnership with an easy single.

Marshall then drags takes advantage of a short ball from Steven Patterson with a four and take him to within one of his half century.

Michael Klinger is an absolute hero in all formats of the game @Gloscricket

Umpire review

Gloucestershire 189-2 - target 264

Hello, we're going upstairs after Will Rhodes hits the stumps direct, but Michael Klinger is clearly in. Not out.

Gloucestershire 187-2 (Klinger 92, Marshall 45)

Target 264

Similar story as Michael Klinger drills Will Rhodes' opening delivery back past the stumps to the boundary as he moves into the 90s. 

Rhodes tries a ball of full length which just misses Hamish Marshall's outside edge and he can only reflect on what might have been. Cricket can be a tough old game when things aren't going your way.

Michael Klinger playing the exact innings I feared he would #absolutegun #RLODC #Yorkshire #runsforfun

Switched back over to the cricket, looks a real flat wicket now at headingley. Yorkshire need a mini miracle to win this one now. #RLODC

Much as I love Jason Gillespie, I'm hoping @Gloscricket beat @Yorkshireccc in the #RLODC. @surreycricket might stand a chance against them!

Gloucestershire 180-2 (Klinger 86, Marshall 44)

Target 264

Steven Patterson returns and Hamish Marshall effortlessly flicks his opening delivery for four behind square. 

Things really are starting to look grim for the home side with the required rate below a run per over from here, and having picked up that early boundary, the two Gloucestershire batsmen content themselves with picking off easy singles.

Gloucestershire 172-2 (Klinger 84, Marshall 38)

Target 264

Decent over from Will Rhodes as just two singles come from it, and with the final delivery Hamish Marshall comes very close to playing on to his own stumps.

Gloucestershire need 92 runs from 96 balls, while Yorkshire need a break.

Gloucestershire 170-2 (Klinger 83, Marshall 37)

Target 264

Tim Bresnan is trying every sort of variation to try to get one of this pair out, including a full toss which almost hit Hamish Marshall in the chest!

Five come from the over as cries of "Yorkshire, Yorkshire..." try to lift the team, but the bowling attack is really struggling here.

Gloucestershire 165-2 (Klinger 80, Marshall 35)

Target 264

On this showing, England are perhaps fortunate Michael Klinger has never been capped for Australia. They do need an opener for their tour against Bangladesh at the end of this month, though.... 

He runs down the track and hits another for four off Matthew Fisher. Gloucestershire need less than 100 for victory now.

Gloucestershire 158-2 (Klinger 75, Marshall 33)

Target 264

Don't give Michael Klinger any sort of chance, Yorkshire. Tim Bresnan drops one just short of a length, and the Australian pulls to the boundary beyond a despairing Gary Ballance dive.

Remember, Klinger has come back from Australia for this game, having returned home to prepare for their domestic season.

Gloucestershire 152-2 (Klinger 70, Marshall 32)

Alex Lees is rotating his bowlers and. Matthew Fisher, at just 17 years old, comes back into the attack and mirrors Bresnan's over, conceding three runs.

It's good economy from Yorkshire, but they really need a wicket.

Eyes from all over the world are on events at Headingley...

Cheering @Gloscricket on from Toronto! Keep going lads! #goglous #roadtolords

Cheering @Gloscricket on from Toronto! Keep going lads! #goglous #roadtolords

Gloucestershire 149-2 (Klinger 69, Marshall 30)

Target 264

Tim Bresnan concedes just three runs off his over, but Michael Klinger and Hamish Marshall are happy to sit tight, knowing they can attack some of the more inexperienced bowlers.

Headingley is rather quiet at the moment. Nails may be being bitten by some of the Vikings' supporters.

Richard Blakey

Ex-Yorkshire and England wicketkeeper on BBC Radio 5live

Yorkshire have used seven bowlers and I think that shows just how desperate Alex Lees is to get a wicket. He's turned to his most experienced bowler Tim Bresnan, hoping for his extra pace and bounce to try and break this partnership up.

Gloucestershire 146-2 (Klinger 67, Marshall 29)

Target 264

Adam Lyth bowls

Two wides from Adam Lyth in that over, maybe we spoke too soon about his bowling ability?

Michael Klinger and Hamish Marshall once again swap singles and Yorkshire bring Tim Bresnan back into the attack. Could he be the man to turn things around?

Gloucestershire 140-2 (Klinger 65, Marshall 27)

Target 264

Hamish Marshall and Michael Klinger look so comfortable taking the singles and occasional twos, and they have reached a 50 partnership from 49 deliveries.

They really haven't been in any sort of trouble so far. Will Yorkshire bring the experience of Steven Patterson and Tim Bresnan back into the attack?

Get Involved via #bbccricket

Some spectators have found a new job for Adam Lyth for England if the selectors decide they no longer want him to open the batting...

Lyth here looking a better bowler than opening bat! 😁 #RLODC

Well England are looking for a 3rd spinner for UAE... #RLODC

Gloucestershire 135-2 (Klinger 63, Marshall 24)

Target 264

Adam Lyth's bowling has actually looked pretty decent in this match, but an aggressive Hamish Marshall comes down the wicket, and hits the ball over extra cover for four. Seven runs from that over and Gloucestershire are well on course for their target, but they need to keep wickets intact.
