Glamorgan returned to Cardiff for their first Championship game at their headquarters since the last week of May. The contest proved to be an enthralling affair with neither side gaining a batting bonus point on a wicket which greatly assisted the seam bowlers on the first two days. However, it was swing that undid Glamorgan on the first day as they slipped to 8/3 in the first ten overs after opting to bat first. Jamie Dalrymple and Tom Maynard engineered a partial recovery, before both departed with the captain gloving a brute of a ball from Pedro Collins to second slip and in the process breaking his thumb. Wickets continued to tumble in the seamer-friendly conditions before a jaunty tenth wicket stand of 62 in eighteen overs between Dean Cosker and David Harrison almost saw Glamorgan to a batting point. The home county then dropped four catches as Middlesex’s batsmen rode their luck. Scott Newman was the main beneficiary as Robert Croft missed a chance at long-leg when the opener was just 12. He went on to score 99 with his departure prompting a late order collapse as the visitors lost their last five wickets for seven runs in the space of ten overs with the Glamorgan spinners snatching an important lead. But the home batsmen were soon in trouble again as Tim Murtagh bowled another excellent new ball spell to send Glamorgan to 34/4. For the second time in the game, Maynard played fluently before splicing a ball into the slips, before Jim Allenby continued his good work as the wicket started to ease. Like Newman, he was dropped in the gully when in single figures and the all-rounder duly made Middlesex rue their luck as he patiently compiled an 89-ball fifty. Dalrymple valiantly came in at number 10 and despite some discomfort he also unfurled some assertive blows as the ninth wicket pair added 76 runs in 23 overs before for the second time in the game, Harrison used the long handle to play a delightful cameo as Glamorgan eventually reached 232. Needing 250 to win, Middlesex were given a decent start by Newman who posted his second half-century of the match until having a rush of blood and dancing down the wicket to Croft and being stumped by acting captain Mark Wallace. With the surface having lost much of its earlier venom, Owais Shah played confidently until holing out at deep backward square-leg, and when visiting captain Neil Dexter was caught at bat-pad, Glamorgan seemed to have an outside chance of turning the tables. But another fielding lapse proved costly as Dawid Malan was dropped at mid-wicket and the Middlesex batsman duly saw his side home on the final day which had begun with his side needing just 50 runs to win with six wickets in hand. With the wicket having become docile, it proved to be a cakewalk as after 10.4 overs, Middlesex secured their first away victory since May to prevent Glamorgan from completing a first-ever home and away double against the North London team. Soon afterwards, torrential rain started to fall, leaving Glamorgan to rue both missed opportunities in the field and their modest first innings total. In contrast, Sussex claimed maximum points in a comprehensive innings victory over Derbyshire at Horsham to give them a useful lead at the top of the table. Elsewhere, both Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire also secured victories to breath down Glamorgan’s neck as the promotion race hotted up.
