Ryan Harris and Jackson Bird made a match-winning contribution with the ball to help Australia overcome Gloucestershire.

The county team threatened Aussies in phases chasing the remaining 159 runs with seven wickets in hand. But Harris' three for 56 made the difference.

Harris while speaking to the media said that he was positive about the upcoming Ashes series starting July 10. While the English side seems confident, the Australians are reeling from lack of spinner and the ouster of coach Mickey Arthur.
