Absolutely fantastic.

First century for Gloucestershire to turn this innings on its head.

And now a hat-trick with the ball.

Unbelievable.

Was just coming here to share this. He probably won't have a better cricketing day than today.

Famous last words on the BBC text commentary.

17:02
Worcs 58-0
Gloucestershire's 231 is indeed looking at little short.

17:17
Worcs 59-4
He's done it! 4 slips jump up in celebration as D'Oliveira is caught behind first ball!

17:47
Worcs 84-5
Out! Tom Price has four!

18:25
Worcs 113-6
This game is finely poised...

18:33
Worcs 115-7
Goodness me, the Pears are in trouble.

A keeper hat trick for Bracey as well of course.

Naturally - as the spiritual home of cricket - the first ever keeper hat trick was recorded by Gloucestershire at Cheltenham almost 130 years ago:

Cheltenham is not the spiritual home of cricket. That's an hyperbolical thing to say.

Well done young man - Ollie and Tom are the Cut Price Currans, but effective at our level.

Much classier and more understated than the gauche and brash Currans. Which is why the Currans are at Surrey and the Prices at Gloucestershire.

3 matches, 3 draws. Starting the County Championship season at the start of April is a great idea. A better one would be getting rid of the bloody Hundred and using August to play proper cricket instead...

Yup. A ton and hatrick in the same day and then the spectacle ruined by multiple sessions ending in a rain washout.

The Hundred really is ruining the game.

Why they don’t they just build and indoor stadium and play the Hundred in March/April then let the real cricket start in summer.

You forget that they were raised by long serving Gloucestershire half-legend Kevin Curran

I did forget. Nature vs nurture.

Tremendous stand of brothers against Yorkshire.

Last season seeing OJ and TJ living their best lives on the Cheltenham College Ground pitch was one of the few positives of a season of coaching chaos.

And with this season even worse, but the Prices looking even better, seeing them at Cheltenham is something I am thoroughly looking forward too.

Fantastic unbeaten 116* from Ollie Joseph Price today. Is there much better in life than a day under sun and dappled cloud in the Cheltenham College Pavilion watching a Gloucestershire centurion at work?

James Robert Bracey, Captain. Carries his bat 224 not out in the One Day Cup vs Somerset.

Fantastic performance.

Incredible knock. 453-3 in 50 overs. Pretty demoralising if Somerset win this one :lol:

It certainly would be.

Going ok so far, touch wood.

The longer Glos can extend the summer for in this comp, the longer until I have to care about the footy properly.

Almost two centuries in a week for Oliver Jospeh Price. 100+ not out earlier in the week, but nabbed for 95 today.

Just needs a calm bowling display and it’s one foot in the quarter finals.

The final, dare we dream, is 16th September. So don’t make plans for Exeter away just yet.

Miles Arthur Halhead Hammond (no relation) 109*. The latest centurion as Gloucestershire absolutely marmalise Lancashire in the quarterfinals.

Just Leicestershire (on Tuesday) stand between Glos and the final.

That really was a marmalisation. I don't know if that's a word, but it should be if it isn't. Fun game at the moment - look at the line up and pick a) which player is going to smash b) a 90, century or double century.

Abject reversion to type. A real downer on the week.
