DERBYSHIRE claimed their second win of the season as they chased down 204 inside two sessions to claim victory on the final day of a thrilling County Championship clash against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham yesterday.

David Wainwright claimed three wickets on the final morning as the County Ground side claimed the final five wickets to dismiss the hosts for 219.

Requiring 204 to win in 67 overs, Billy Godleman (54) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (52no) both hit half-centuries, while there was also useful contributions from Ben Slater (27), Wayne Madsen (35) and Wes Durston (27).

Derbyshire set about the total in perfect fashion thanks to an opening partnership of 81 between Godleman and Slater.

However, Slater was caught by Michael Klinger at slip before Godleman was caught off the bowling of Taylor having made his first half-century of the season.

Madsen was looking comfortable before he was trapped lbw by Liam Norwell. Durston came in and smashed 27 from 18 before being caught, and Chanderpaul (pictured) took Derbyshire over the line, hitting two sixes to bring up victory.
