scores to unfurl a series of rasping blows, striking 10 fours and 6 sixes as he raced to 98 from 90 balls before edging the persevering Matt Mason to first slip and departing two short of a richly-deserved maiden Championship hundred. For the second time in the match, Wright also played fluently with his 127-ball century being decorated with a series of sweetly struck boundaries. The youngster added 135 for the fifth wicket with Jim Allenby, who struck an assertive fifty and as a result of their brisk scoring rate of five an over, the Welsh county entered the final day 374 runs ahead. With Sussex faltering in their match with Surrey at Guildford, Glamorgan now had the chance of securing a decisive victory so, after batting for a further seven overs on the final morning, they duly set the visitors a target of 417 in a minimum of 87 overs besides hoping that the forecast rain would not materialise on the Glorious Twelfth so that they would have no grouse with the weather! After a solid start, Worcestershire’s innings dramatically fell away after lunch as they nosedived against some accurate bowling, supported by some outstanding fielding. Cosgrove smartly ran out Dave Wheeldon whilst Dalrymple dived at full stretch at short extra cover to dismiss Mitchell. His departure prompted a sudden collapse as the visitors lost their last seven wickets for 47 runs in 21 dramatic overs with David Harrison celebrating his 100th


XI after a run of low


taking 3/3 in a dozen balls before Dean Cosker took four wickets to fillet the lower order as Glamorgan won with 26.1 overs remaining. Shortly after their victory, news came through from Guildford that Sussex had held on for a draw and there were smiles on Glamorgan faces as the Welsh county moved back to the top of the table, one point ahead of the South Coast side. The mood though was less cheerful in the Worcestershire camp as Vikram Solanki resigned as Club captain after this comprehensive defeat – Glamorgan’s largest ever by a runs margin against the West Midlands side, beating their win by 215 runs at Cardiff Arms Park in 1930.

Glamorgan leapfrogged back to the top of the table as their annual visit to North Wales produced a comprehensive victory over Worcestershire with a fine all-round team performance and all of their top order passing fifty in the match. Things began well for Glamorgan as their openers shared a century stand, but after Mark Cosgrove had raced to 84 from 75 balls he was stumped as advancing down the wicket once too often. Despite further half-centuries from Ben Wright and Jamie Dalrymple the innings stalled in late afternoon, and it was left to the last pair to see Glamorgan to three batting points. Worcestershire then lost three early wickets before Daryl Mitchell stabilised the innings and together with Alexei Kervezee added 150 in 40 overs. Mitchell duly reached a patient four-hour century – his third in successive innings – before the visitor’s enterprisingly declared after an hour’s batting on the third morning in an attempt to engineer a run chase on the final day. After the early dismissal of Cosgrove, Tom Maynard treated the decent-sized crowd to a display of uninhibited strokeplay with the youngster putting aside thoughts of this possibly being his last innings in the 1st
