Gloucestershire 349-8 lead Leicestershire 222 by 127 runs
Gloucestershire took their first innings lead into three figures on the third morning of the Specsavers Division Two county championship match against Leicestershire at the Fischer County Ground.
Resuming on 218-3, the visitors quickly lost George Hankins, bowled middle stump by a quick, in-swinging delivery from left-arm seamer Dieter Klein.
James Bracey was then joined by captain Phil Mustard in adding 74 for the fifth wicket, with the 20-year-old Bracey scoring his first half-century for Gloucestershire before Mustard was bowled by Matthew Pillans, trying to cut a ball from just outside off-stump and inside edging the ball on to his stumps.
Bracey, on 63, was then unfortunate to be run out at the non-striker's end as bowler Pillans deflected a straight drive from Jack Taylor on to the stumps. Leicestershire's spirits were further lifted going in to lunch when the left-handed Noema-Barnett left a delivery from Pillans from around the wicket that went on to hit his off-stump, and Josh Shaw was leg before to a Ben Raine delivery which kept low.
However Taylor hit five boundaries in going to an undefeated 31 off 24 balls as Gloucestershire extended their lead to 127 at lunch.
