Lancashire Lightning v Glamorgan Dragons at old trafford on May 2nd, 2010


scorers: D M White and A K Hignell


This was a match dominated by two sizeable partnerships, but despite a scintillating century from Tom Maynard, a record fourth wicket stand of 186 in 23.2 overs between Ashwell Prince and Steven Croft trumped the worthy efforts of Maynard and David Brown, who had added 101 in nine and a half action-packed overs to post what seemed to be a decent total. The visitors had earlier been given a decent start by Jim Allenby and Mark Cosgrove who, after facing a disciplined new ball spell, watchfully added 86 in 17 overs. After each had fallen to the left-arm spin of Stephen Parry, it was Maynard who underpinned the Dragons acceleration, reaching fifty from 48 balls before expanding his repertoire as the runs flowed in the last ten overs. The young tyro was especially savage on Glen Chapple, and in one over he pulled the home captain for six before adding two more fours in successive balls and then, just for good measure, swatting him over the point bound- ary for another six. A savage pull for four by Brown against Daren Powell brought up their century stand, but next ball the West Indies paceman sent Brown’s middle stump tumbling out of the ground. In the final over, Maynard duly registered his second one-day century – reached from 66 balls – as the Dragons ended on 271/4. James Harris then made early inroads into the Lancashire batting and with the total on 89/3, the visitor’s looked to be in a useful position. But the in-form Prince and Croft, who had already shared two century stands in Championship matches, then began their match-winning partner- ship, quietly working the ball around to keep in touch with the required rate, and calmly accumulating in ones and twos as they steadily chiselled away at the target. Prince duly reached his fifty from 55 balls as the equation was reduced to 87 from the final ten overs. Croft also reached his workmanlike half-century from 54 balls before upping the tempo by lofting Harris over the long-on ropes and then smashing Harrison through mid-off for four and over long-on for another six as a torrent of runs came in Lancashire’s batting powerplay, with the pair pummelling 54 from 24 balls. Prince duly reached his century from 82 balls, drilling successive fours against Harrison as his team raced to their target with sixteen balls in hand, with their stand becoming the highest for the fourth wicket against Glamorgan in the competition, beating the 181 added by Adam Hollioake and Ian Ward for Surrey at The Oval in 2000. Whilst the Dragons total of 271/4 was their highest-ever in the competition against Lancashire, it also proved to be their highest batting first and losing, surpassing the 262/6 made against Gloucestershire at Bristol in 2005.
