Derbyshire v Glamorgan at Derby on April 21st, 22md, 23rd and 24th, 2010


scorers: J M Brown and A K Hignell


Welsh hearts were broken on the final afternoon of the season as Glamorgan, who drew at Cardiff, were leap-frogged by Worcestershire as the West Midlands side successfully chased a target of 301 inside 55 overs at New Road in a contest which Sussex seemed to be in control on the opening days. Events had began badly for Glamorgan at the SWALEC Sta- dium as, after opting to bat first, their batsmen were soon in trouble in the overcast and blustery conditions. Not for the first time in the season, Jim Allenby played watchfully and with the support of James Harris, the seventh wicket pair gave their total an air of respectability before a low pressure system swept in from the Atlantic Ocean, washing out play from an hour after lunch on the opening day until 10.30 on the third morning. Both batsmen departed inside an hour when play resumed as Glamorgan, for the second home game in succession, failed to gain a single batting point. The visitor’s then stuttered past 200 as the home attack attempted to claw themselves back into the game, but the seventh wicket pair of Steffan Jones and Tom Poynton added 70 in 34 overs before Jones became Dean Cosker’s 50th victim in first-class cricket in 2010. The spinner then ended the Peakites resistance leaving Glamorgan with a deficit of 110 runs as news came through that Worcestershire had been set a target of 301 runs at New Road after Sussex’s batsmen had feasted on some declaration bowling. Mark Cosgrove and Gareth Rees duly made their intentions clear either side of lunch as the Australian posted a 38-ball fifty, reaching his fifty in the grand manner by lofting Robin Peterson for six over the River Stand. With Worcester- shire making swift progress, a victory at Cardiff was now at the top of Glamorgan’s agenda, and after a lunchtime chat by the two captains and their management, Derbyshire brought on their declaration bowlers as the Welsh county frantically added 216 runs in 24.2 overs with Rees posting an unbeaten century before Glamorgan declared at 2.30pm leaving Der- byshire a target of 160 in a minimum of 37 overs. The visitors, for whom a victory would lift them off the bottom of the table, then made a poor start as Chesney Hughes jaywalked across an in-swinger from Harris before Wayne Madsen bagged a pair as he was caught down the legside by Mark Wallace. Chris Rogers, handicapped by a knee injury, then chopped Allenby onto his stumps, before Cosker trapped both Wes Durston and Greg Smith l.b.w. as Derbyshire slipped to 63/5 at the start of the final hour as the romantics in the decent –sized crowd started to dream of a dramatic victory. But these thoughts proved to be fanciful as Robin Peterson and Dan Redfern shared a half-century stand as Glamorgan’s promotion hopes evaporated. With news filtering through that Worcestershire had won, a series of bowling changes took place in an attempt to break the stubborn stand, but the Derbyshire batsmen held firm with Redfern surviving a couple of appeals for l.b.w. as well as edging close to the fielders, before Glamorgan finally called it a day with less than ten minutes remaining, still needing five wickets to win and their hopes of promotion in tatters, five weeks to the day after they had overwhelmed Worcestershire at Colwyn Bay to set up a 37-point advantage over the Midland county.
