(FPt20) somerset v Glamorgan Dragons at taunton on 28th June 2010 Umpires: M J D Bodenham and J W Lloyds (tV umpire – te Jesty)


scorers: G e stickley and A K Hignell


With Somerset needing 51 off 36 balls, and with eight wickets in hand, the home side were being made to work extremely hard for their runs by the Glamorgan Dragons, and when Nick Compton promptly jaywalked down the wicket to Chris Ashling, Mark Wallace completed the stumping in what seemed to be the decisive moment of the game. But two balls later, the Glamorgan wicket-keeper dropped a skier from Zander de Bruyn, before Kieron Pollard deposited Ashling’s next three deliveries high over the stands on the legside for a brace of towering sixes. Jim Allenby’s next delivery duly flew off the edge of de Bruyn’s bat and sped away to the third man boundary as the target had become 28 from 29 balls. Although Al- lenby yorked Pollard later in the over, the damage had already been done by the big-hitting West Indian as the momentum violently swung back in Somerset’s favour and de Bruyn watchfully guided his side home with eight balls to spare, leaving the Dragons to rue their missed opportunity. It was especially galling as the potentially dangerous Marcus Trescothick had departed to the fourth ball of the innings, miscuing the valiant Robert Croft to Allenby at mid-on. The Dragons innings had also started in the same manner with Allenby falling to the fourth ball of the game as Alfonso Thomas delivered a fine spell of controlled and accurate seam bowling, topping and tailing the innings in a Man-of-the-Match performance, besides tak- ing an agile catch running along the third man boundary to dismiss Jamie Dalrymple. The only resistance came from Mark Cosgrove, who became the sheet anchor of the Dragons innings, playing a responsible knock and becoming one of only three men in double figures. Once again, the lack of sizeable partnerships prevented the Welsh county from building up any meaningful momentum after opting to bat to first. Tom Maynard unfurled three exquisite boundaries, but it proved to be a brief appearance at the wicket for the youngster before Murali Kartik’s accurate left-arm spin thwarted the Dragons further progress as he removed David Brown and Gareth Rees in successive balls. Wallace then became his third victim as he was bowled by one that sharply turned, before the wily Thomas returned to fillet the lower order and prevent the Dragons from reaching a total near 150 with Cosgrove departing in the final over as Ben Phillips took a good catch at long-off. This victory took Somerset into third place, whilst the defeat left the Dragons languishing in seventh place and needing to swiftly return to winning ways if they were to harbour realistic ambitions of claiming a quarter-final spot.
