Glamorgan Dragons v somerset at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 25th April, 2010


scorers: A K Hignell and G e stickley


Two days after hearing their penalty for preparing what had been deemed an unfit pitch in 2009 had been reduced from two points to one, the Glamorgan Dragons lost their opening match in the Clydesdale Bank 40 League against a powerful Somerset side. The visitors had been runners-up in the competition in 2009, besides playing in the Champions League, and they soon showed their experience of playing against some of the world’s best one-day sides by bowling well as a unit, holding several vital catches and building partnerships when batting first on a sluggish wicket. Yet had the Dragons not gifted Somerset several wickets, and restricted them to a total nearer 200, the result of this match might have been different. Indeed, Somerset had earlier slipped to 21/2 in the fifth over after a fiery opening burst from David Harrison. The change bowlers, especially Jim Allenby and Dean Cosker, then put a brake on the batsmen’s progress and it was only James Hildreth and Nick Compton, who had scored a century on the ground in 2009 for the Middlesex Panthers, who played with any fluency. Indeed, Hildreth played a little gem of an innings, full of deft and inventive strokes in the closing overs as Somerset added 75 in the last seven overs in what proved to be a decisive passage of play. Mark Cosgrove then launched the Dragons reply with a series of withering blows, but having blasted 31 from 21 balls he was bowled attempting a lusty drive against Alfonso Thomas’ first ball. A few overs later an ambitious call for a single resulted in Jamie Dalrymple being run out, and it was left to Tom Maynard and Ben Wright to provide some ballast to the innings. With the visiting bowl- ers giving little away, the asking rate steadily rose, and both batsmen duly fell to smart catches as they tried to force the pace. Mark Wallace and David Brown, on his List A debut for Glamorgan, briefly raised the hopes of the home supporters, but when the Stadium’s floodlights came on, the Dragons needed 84 in the last ten overs – a task which proved beyond them against the accurate and canny Somerset attack.
