Glamorgan Dragons v surrey Lions at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 21st May 2010


scorers: A K Hignell and K R Booth


With the Surrey Lions making heavy weather of chasing 224, the Glamorgan Dragons seemed on top after 28 overs with the visitor’s on 134/6 and finding run-scoring an increasingly difficult proposition against the accurate home attack. But Rory Hamilton-Brown, the Lions’ enterprising young captain, then called a powerplay which decisively changed the complexion of the match as the visitors reached their target in the penultimate over. After the home spinners had imposed a strangle- hold on the Lion’s progress, Chris Schofield was the catalyst in their change of fortunes as the former England leg-spinner struck a level-headed half-century from 47 balls, adding fifty in the space of just five and a half overs with Gareth Batty after the batting powerplay was called. Ironically, Batty pulled a hamstring when scampering a quick single from the first ball of the powerplay, with the injury appearing to galvanise his efforts as he unleashed some telling blows whilst virtually standing on one leg, before holing out at long-off. This change in tempo undid all of the good work the Dragons attack had previ- ously achieved, with young seamer Will Owen, for the second week in succession, delivering a feisty spell in the middle of the innings and claiming the prized scalp of Mark Ramprakash – fresh from scoring a double hundred and a century in the Championship match earlier in the week - who gloved a rising delivery to be caught behind. But this praiseworthy effort swiftly became history as the game swung back in the Lions favour as Schofield, with the calm assistance of Chris Trem- lett, steadily chipped away at the target which they reduced to 36 off as many balls. After Tremlett was smartly run out by Dean Cosker, the vastly experienced Andre Nel helped Schofield see the Lions home with eight balls to spare. Earlier, Nel had been given rough treatment by firstly Mark Cosgrove and later Tom Maynard, one of whose fierce drives hit the South African in his follow through and had him doubling up in pain. Cosgrove and Jim Allenby had earlier given the Dragons a flying start, adding 88 in thirteen overs as the Australian flayed the visiting attack to all corners of the SWALEC Stadium as he raced to a 46-ball fifty. But after this helter-skelter start, the Dragons crucially lost momentum and in a twelve over phase in the middle of their innings, four wickets tumbled without a boundary being scored as the Lions clawed their way back into the game. Maynard, who had set a Club record score in a Second Eleven Trophy match earlier in the week, maintained his good run of form by kick-starting the Dragons innings, hitting a series of withering blows as he raced to his half-century in even time before miscuing a pull and being caught at mid-wicket. But despite the best efforts of their lower order, the Dragons ended twenty runs short of a competitive total.
