(FPt20) Glamorgan Dragons v Hampshire Royals at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 8th June 2010 Umpires: R t Robinson and s A Garratt (tV replays – G D Lloyd)


scorers: A K Hignell, B Young and A e Weld


The Dragons made it two wins out of two with a superb bowling performance after the Royals had opted to bat first. The game was effectively won in the opening six overs – five of which were bowled by the spinners - as the Royals subsided to 18/3 with the Dragons employing their foxtrot tactics (slow, slow, quick, quick, slow) by interspersing the spin of the wily Robert Croft, Jamie Dalrymple and Dean Cosker with the sheer pace of Shaun Tait. Neil McKenzie and Michael Carberry tried to rectify matters, but after McKenzie had reverse-swept Dalrymple for four, he attempted one ambitious shot too many against the Dragons captain and lost his off stump. The arrival of Dan Christian - a member of Australia’s squad at the ICC World Twenty20 – prompted the return of Tait to the fray and he duly beat Carberry outside off stump with five successive balls as the Dragons kept a vice-like grip on the sluggish run rate. In a bid to up the tempo, Christian swatted Dalrymple in the air to mid-wicket, but only proceeded in giving Cosker a simple catch as the Royals slipped to 65/5 in the 13th over. Dominic Cork and Abdul Razzaq oversaw the addition of useful runs in the closing overs, but their final total of 114/9 - besides being the second lowest against the Dragons - was twenty runs light of being competitive. Jim Allenby and Mark Cosgrove duly made a solid start with the former striking Chris Wood over extra cover for four and then when Cork entered the attack, he smashed the veteran through the covers and then to the ropes at mid-wicket. After Cosgrove had departed l.b.w. to Sean Ervine’s first delivery, Dalrymple maintained the momentum with Allenby as the Dragons reached 58/1 at the halfway stage. Allenby drilled Danny Briggs high over cover for four, but in the spinner’s next over Christian took a stunning one-handed catch high above his head at backward point to send Dalrymple back to the dug-out. Tom Maynard arrived at the crease with 44 needed off 46 balls, and the youngster duly unleashed some savage blows, before miscuing another expansive stroke and was well caught by Wood who took a fine running catch at wide long-off. With 23 needed from the final five overs, Allenby was joined by the inventive Gareth Rees who “dilscooped” Cork to the delight of the crowd. Allenby then reached his invaluable fifty from 53 balls, and with five runs needed from the last over, the opener – who deservedly won the Man of the Match Award once again - scampered a quick single, before Rees settled things by launching Razzaq over extra cover as the Dragons won with four balls to spare.
