(FPt20) Glamorgan Dragons v surrey Lions at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 9th July 2010 Umpires: J H evans and M A Gough


scorers: A K Hignell and K R Booth


In the week leading up to this contest, there had been plenty of hype about the return of Shaun Tait to the Dragons attack after his record-breaking performance the previous weekend at Lord’s where in Australia’s One-Day International against England, he had become the first man to bowl a delivery measured at 100 mph at the home of cricket. However, on return- ing to Wales, Tait complained of soreness in his shins and on the advice of his country’s medical staff, he wisely withdrew from this contest. However, an Australian still grabbed the headlines as Mark Cosgrove made a forthright 76 from 53 balls to lay the foundations of a match-winning total as the Dragons kept up their slim hopes of a quarter-final place. The left- hander shared a combative opening stand of 75 in nine overs with Jim Allenby and, at one stage, a total in excess of 200 looked on the cards as the visiting bowlers struggled to contain the Dragons openers who unleashed a torrent of blows to give the innings a turbo-charged start. Stuart Meaker eventually made the breakthrough as Allenby was caught on the long-on boundary and shortly afterwards, Tom Maynard – the hero of the victory six days before at The Oval - departed first ball, but the impetus was maintained as Jamie Dalrymple joined forces with Cosgrove and added a further 70 in seven overs. But just as the Australian was threatening to cut loose and reach a hundred, he lofted Chris Tremlett into the hands of long-off and became the first of six wickets to tumble for 16 runs in the space of 19 balls as the Dragons literally ran out of steam. Chris Schofield produced a superb pick up and throw to dismiss Dalrymple, followed by another smart piece of fielding to dismiss James Harris, whilst Robert Croft was also run out by Andre Nel. But the veteran off-spinner soon made amends as he gave the Dragons the perfect start by having Steven Davies deftly stumped by Mark Wallace off the first delivery of the innings – also adjudged a wide by umpire Michael Gough. In the absence of the injured Mark Ramprakash and Younis Khan, the Lions top-order relied on their young guns, but in the face of some accurate bowling and tigerish fielding, none could make an impact as the home spinners steadily made inroads into their batting. Dalrymple played a key role in mid-innings as he filleted the middle and lower order, with his career-best 3-25 including the vital scalp of Andrew Symonds, who strangely had not come in until number six. The man who once hit 20 sixes in a Championship match at Abergavenny began with a series of singles before lofting the Dragons captain into the stands at mid-wicket. However, he perished next ball, trying to repeat the stroke as Gareth Rees pouched a skier. Many thought his departure would be the killer blow for the Lions, but Stewart Walters unleashed some furious blows as he posted a 33-ball fifty to reduce the equa- tion to eighteen from the final over. Allenby duly delivered the perfect last over as, bowling straight and to a full length, he stopped boundaries being struck to clinch a home and away double over the Lions.
