|Gloucestershire 2 pts, Derbyshire 2 pts|
Ollie Price’s third first-class century put Gloucestershire in a strong position on the opening day of their contest with Derbyshire.
The 22-year-old followed-up County Championship hundreds against Yorkshire and Worcestershire this season with a career-best 125 not out.
He received excellent support from captain Graeme van Buuren (78) in a fifth-wicket stand of 157, which helped their side close on 333-6.
Anuj Dal was the most successful Derbyshire bowler with 3-42 from 16 overs on a draining day in the field for the visitors in energy-sapping heat.
Gloucestershire opted to bat first and the decision looked justified when Ben Charlesworth and Chris Dent took the total to 32 from the first seven overs.
