(FPt20) Hampshire Royals v Glamorgan Dragons at the Rose Bowl on 1st July, 2010 Umpires: n L Bainton and P Willey (tV umpire – te Jesty)


scorers: A e Weld and A K Hignell


Two fine pieces of fielding helped to consign the Glamorgan Dragons to another resounding defeat as they attempted to chase a target of 200 runs against the Hampshire Royals. Mark Cosgrove gave the visitors a swift start with a volley of blistering blows but on 33, the Australian chipped Chris Wood in the air over mid-on, but Dominic Cork - the veteran cap- tain of the Royals - belied his years by sprinting back and athletically diving full length to hold onto the ball. Tom Maynard unfurled some high-class blows but in the seventh over, James Vince ran out the youngster as he stopped a drive at cover point and then hit the stumps at the bowlers end with Maynard out of his ground backing up. The loss of further wickets in quick succession meant that, once again, no momentum was gained, leaving the middle and lower –order with a mountain to climb. It was Mark Wallace who ended up as top-scorer, with his spritely innings including a massive pull for six against former colleague Simon Jones who made his first appearance for the Royals against the Welsh county, having played against the Dragons for the Worcestershire Royals twice in 2008. In the context of the game however, Wallace’s efforts were of no major consequence as the target proved to be well out of the Dragons range. Earlier, the Royals were indebted to Jimmy Adams for posting his second century of the summer in the competition, with the left-handed opener completing a 60-ball hundred, after the Royals elected to bat first on a wicket which had been used earlier in the day for a Women’s One-Day International between England and New Zealand. Adams also shared a second wicket stand of 90 in 8.5 overs with Vince, as the tempo rose with none of the Dragons bowlers being able to put a brake on the Royals headway with each batsmen profiting from the short boundaries. They also benefitted from some sloppy fielding, with the most costly mistake coming when usually reliable Jim Allenby dropped Adams on 58 at long-off. After Vince had finally fallen to Robert Croft, Sean Ervine played some lusty blows to maintain the impetus, before Huw Waters returned to dismiss both Ervine and Neil McKenzie in the space of four balls. But Adams batted through the innings - something that the Dragons must have wished one of their batsman could have achieved – completing his century in the final over as he became the leading run scorer in the competition and guided the Royals to a match-winning total, inflated by the award of six penalty runs as the Dragons were penalised for their slow over rate.

Michael Lumb, england’s opening bats- man in the ICC World twenty20 com- petition, enjoyed little success against the Dragons in 2010. He was dismissed cheaply by Huw Waters at the Rose Bowl, and as seen above, was bowled by Robert Croft for a single at the sWALeC stadium.
