(Friendly) Glamorgan v West Indies A at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 5th, 6th and 7th June 2010 Umpires: P K Baldwin and R t Robinson


scorers: A K Hignell and B Jones


Glamorgan’s first-ever three-day contest against West Indies A was intriguingly balanced on the final afternoon when rain washed out the remaining 55.5 overs after the tourists were set a target of 287. The contest – on a relaid wicket on the Pavilion-side of the square – had seen some exemplary bowling performances as well as some stubborn fightbacks. After opting to bat first, Glamorgan slipped to 8/2 as the whippy Lionel Baker took wickets in his opening two overs. Gareth Rees made a composed half-century to lead a riposte, but shortly after lunch, he was bowled by Odean Brown – one of two leg- spinners in the Caribbean side – and it looked as though the tourists would quickly polish off the home batting. But David Brown, on his first-class debut for Glamorgan, had other ideas as he played some forceful blows including some booming drives straight for six. He seemed set to score his maiden century but on 99 he was the last wicket to fall as he drove to mid-off. Will Owen swiftly disposed of the tourists top-order, before Chris Ashling delivered a probing spell with his accuracy rewarded by a trio of cheap wickets. Chadwick Walton and Imran Khan briefly halted the collapse, but both fell to Robert Croft as the off-spinner worked his way through the lower order, taking his tally of first-class scalps to 997 as Glamorgan secured a lead of 110 runs. Batting again, the home batsmen were soon in trouble and after Will Bragg had been bizarrely run out sauntering home for a third run, Baker was denied a hat-trick as Andre Edwards spilled a catch at second slip. After his let-off, Nick James received stolid support from Croft as the pair took the lead past 200, before upping the tempo with fifty in five overs after a delayed start on the final day as both men posted assertive half-centuries. With 66 overs remaining, Adam Shantry struck in his opening over as Justin Guillen was caught behind. Devon Smith and Omar Phillips then played some flamboyant strokes to bring up the fifty in the 8th over, forcing the introduction of Croft to put a brake on their progress. The off-spinner had a huge appeal for leg before turned down in his opening over, but just as the few hardy souls who had turned up in the hope of seeing Croft take his 1,000th wicket, had started thinking they might witness a moment of Welsh sporting history, the rains returned and the match ended in a draw. Nevertheless, the game will still enter the record books as match when Glamorgan had their youngest captain, with Tom Maynard at the age of 21 years and 72 days old, breaking the record previously held by Hugh Morris who captained Glamorgan in 1986 in their County Championship encounter with Leicestershire aged 22 years and 287 days.
