The John Player League
Worcestershire v Gloucestershire Worcestershire, under the leadership of NORMAN GIFFORD , are proving to be the side to watch in the limited-over game. Their dramatic win over Lancashire in the Ben-son and Hedges Cup semi-final must rate as one of the most exciting sporting moments of 1973. Gloucestershire are still in touch with the League leaders and the skills of their South African all-rounder MIKE PROCTER are always a pleasure to watch.
