Dorset followed up their big win over Wiltshire with an eye-catching 8-6 victory over favourites Gloucestershire after establishing a 5-3 morning singles lead.

Cornwall remain second in the table after two days despite narrowly losing to Ali James' resolute Wiltshire, who clawed back a morning 4.5-3.5 deficit to edge home 7.25-6.75.
