Glamorgan v Gloucestershire at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th May 2010 scorers: A K Hignell and K t Gerrish


Glamorgan soared to the top of the table as leaders Sussex lost at Northampton whilst they recorded another innings victory, over Gloucestershire, who at the start of the contest had been four points below the Welsh county in third place. After winning the toss and batting first, the visitor’s top order struggled against a probing new ball spell by Huw Waters. As the wicket eased, five of their batsmen subsequently went on to compile half-centuries of varying character, but crucially none amassed the sizeable innings to put their side into a truly dominant position. Eight of their men also departed l.b.w. – the most since seven Sussex batsmen were dismissed leg before at Swansea in 1954. Glamorgan’s reply contained a brace of half-centuries on a surface which became increasingly benign, but it was an outstanding 172 from Ben Wright that allowed Glamorgan to cruise past the visitor’s total and amass a first innings lead of 166 runs. His fleet-footed efforts saw the youngster register his first Championship century since 2007 , from 140 balls, with the right-hander piercing the field with a series of crisp strokes on both sides of the wicket. After he had departed Jim Allenby maintained the impetus and together with Robert Croft they added 142 for the sixth wicket – Glamorgan’s best-ever against Gloucestershire - with Allenby continuing his fine form with a 157-ball century. Croft also posted a 104-ball fifty before Jamie Dalrymple declared with a lead of 166 runs and thanks to the brisk run rate, a combination of scoreboard pressure and plenty of time in which to bowl out the opposition. With eight overs remaining on the third day, Chris Dent fell to Dean Cosker in the final over before the Glamorgan seamers made further inroads the following morning and when Cosker had Alex Gidman leg before, the visitor’s had slipped to 77/4. James Franklin offered some resistance against his former colleagues, but after lunch, he also departed l.b.w. to Croft as the old warhorse took his 992nd wicket to become the Club’s fourth highest wicket-taker. None of the visiting batsmen offered lengthy resistance against the vibrant Glamorgan attack who for the second match in a row efficiently made inroads. When David Harrison ran out Anthony Ireland in the final over before tea, Glamorgan could celebrate their second successive innings victory for the first time since 1948 and a move to the top of the table.
