Glamorgan Dragons v Unicorns at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 20th August 2010 scorers: A K Hignell and K B o'Connell


The weather was the only winner in the Glamorgan Dragons’ final home match of the season in the Clydesdale Bank 40 against the Unicorns. The floodlit match was scheduled to start at 4.40pm, but steady rain in mid-afternoon meant that the umpires initially delayed the start of the contest until 6.00pm with the game reduced to 32 overs. The Dragons then lost the toss, but before play could start, there was another downpour causing a further delay until 6.30pm and a reduction to 28 overs per side. But once again, just before this was about to start, the heavens opened yet again, and with further bands of heavy showers crossing the ground, the umpires called off play shortly after 7.30pm.

(CB40) Worcestershire Royals v Glamorgan Dragons at new Road, Worcester on 22nd August 2010 Umpires: J H evans and D J Millns


scorers: n D smith and A K Hignell


With the Worcestershire Royals on 100/0 after 21 overs, the Dragons looked like containing the home side to a respect- able total after they had opted to bat first on a placid New Road wicket. But after labouring to fifty from 75 balls, Moeen Ali exploded into life as he blasted six fours and three sixes in the space of nineteen deliveries as the tempo of the innings dramatically changed and the destiny of the game quickly shifted in favour of the home side. None of the visiting bowlers could contain the opener who had earlier shared a sober century partnership with Vikram Solanki who decorated his fifty with some sublime strokes. Having sprung into life after his tentative start, Moeen proceeded to add 106 in just 11 overs with Alexei Kervezee as the second wicket pair put the Dragons to the sword with a flurry of firmly struck blows. Nick James, in his first one-day outing of the summer, ended Moeen’s assault as he miscued to long-on, before two balls later James pouched a simple return catch as Shakib Al Hasan chipped a drive back to the young spinner. But this heralded the arrival of Gareth Andrew who, with the aid of his mongoose bat, struck a brutal half-century from 22 balls in the closing overs, lofting with ease both the seamers and the spinners to the boundary boards. The all-rounder harpooned Chris Ashling for successive sixes plus a pair of fours in the final over as the Royals finished on 296/5 – their highest 40 overs total against the Dragons - with Andrew unbeaten on 66 from a mere 26 balls with 6 fours and 5 sixes as his side maintained a run rate in excess of ten an over. Needing to make their highest total batting second in the competition, and without several experi- enced batsmen, much depended on Mark Cosgrove and Tom Maynard if the Dragons were to reach their stiff target. Both though were dismissed inside just 25 balls as the home attack claimed early wickets. After Matt Mason had chiselled away at the top order, the canny left-arm spin of Shakib Al Hasan then made further inroads as the Dragons innings became a steady procession of batsmen returning at regular intervals back to the pavilion. The Bangladeshi duly ended what had become a very one-sided contest in the 27th over as Dean Cosker chipped the spinner straight to Shaaiq Choudhry at square-leg to give the Royals their first victory of the summer in the competition, and all by the emphatic margin of 178 runs.
