Glamorgan Dragons v sussex sharks at st.Helen’s, swansea on 25th July, 2010


scorers: A K Hignell and M J Charman


With Mark Cosgrove out of the match after dislocating a finger in the field, and the Dragons suffering a mid innings wobble, it looked as if the target of making 63 from the last 76 balls against one of the country’s best one-day sides might be too stiff for the home side. But Mark Wallace and Ben Wright shared a sensible partnership for the sixth wicket, adding 60 off 66 balls with a combination of deftly placed singles and some firmly struck boundaries. But neither saw Glamorgan home as with three needed, Wright was caught behind at the fourth attempt by Andrew Hodd, before Wallace was bowled by the first ball of the final over without further addition to the total. But Dean Cosker calmly walked in and despatched the next ball behind square-leg for four to seal a hard-fought victory. Cosker had earlier enjoyed an outstanding bowling spell having Joe Gatting stumped off his first delivery, before taking three wickets for just two runs with his last nine balls. His decisive spell ironically came in a batting powerplay as the Sussex Sharks lost their way after a stand of 92 in sixteen overs between Chris Nash and Murray Goodwin had put them into what seemed to be a promising position. But after taking the powerplay in the 30th over, the visitors slumped from 144/2 to 166/6, with Will Owen also bowling a hostile second spell and extracting some lavish bounce from the biscuit-coloured surface, and it was left to some lusty tailend blows to see the Sharks reach the 200-mark. With Cosgrove having been injured early in the Sharks innings, Robert Croft rolled back the years after being promoted to open with Jim Allenby, as the Dragons successfully garnered some early runs against the visiting seamers before their international spinners came into the attack. After Croft had departed having done his job as a pinch-hitter, Allenby continued the assault, treating Monty Panesar with complete disdain as the former England spinner was hit for 31 in his first three overs. Allenby also despatched Michael Yardy straight for six into the Mumbles Road, fol- lowed by two other booming drives through mid-off, but after completing a 51-ball fifty, Yardy gained revenge as he bowled the Dragons opener. Panesar then switched to the Pavilion End and found greater assistance as the Dragons had a mid- innings stutter with Wallace also running out his captain as the home side threatened to go into freefall. But Wallace atoned for his mistake and together with Wright they got the Dragons back into winning ways in one-day cricket - albeit against a Sussex side missing four key players - besides showing that they could win games batting second without the services of their talismanic Australian batsman.
