Glamorgan Dragons v somerset at the sWALeC stadium, Cardiff on 14th July, 2010


scorers – AK Hignell, B Young and Ge stickley


Somerset literally dampened the Glamorgan Dragons hopes of a quarter-final place at a dank and overcast SWALEC Stadium as they outclassed the home side in a rain-affected contest, decided in their favour under the Duckworth-Lewis Method. It was a must-win game for the Dragons who opted to bat first on a wicket that until mid-afternoon had been under cover. Inside four overs, the Somerset bowlers had reduced the Dragons to 10/3 in what proved to be a decisive passage of play, as firstly Ben Phillips bowled Jim Allenby through the gate before having Mark Cosgrove caught behind. Mark Turner’s skiddy pace then saw Mark Wallace top-edge an intended pull before Tom Maynard and Ben Wright stabilised the innings, adding 61, with Maynard striking Turner for successive fours, before Wright drilled Phillips over the head of cover point for a rasping boundary. Maynard duly greeted Kieron Pollard by cutting the West Indian for four, and when spinner Murali Kartik entered the fray, the Dragons appeared to be on the way to recovery. But their impetus was crucially lost as Wright swatted Turner into deep mid-wicket’s hands, before shortly afterwards Maynard pulled Turner straight to square- leg. Jamie Dalrymple and Gareth Rees steadied the ship but boundaries were few and far between and in a bid to up the tempo Dalrymple perished as he scooped Pollard into the wicket-keepers gloves. The boundary drought was ended as James Harris struck Alfonso Thomas for successive fours in the final over, before delivering a fine opening over himself, beating Craig Kieswetter with four consecutive deliveries. But Marcus Trescothick tucked into Shaun Tait, lofting him over cover and mid-off, as well as upper cutting the Aussie over the River Stand for six. Kieswetter also struck Harris for suc- cessive sixes to put Somerset well ahead of the par score, before being bowled by the youngster. Trescothick responded by drilling Tait through mid-off before whipping him for a massive six over square-leg, but with rain starting to fall, Trego edged Harris into Wallace’s gloves before a delay resulted in five overs being lost. Somerset’s revised target was 92 from 15 overs, as the visitor’s resumed needing a further 44 off 8.2 overs. After Tait had bowled a hostile final over, the Somerset batsmen feasted on Cosgrove’s seamers, as the equation swiftly became 25 off 36 balls. Robert Croft then entered the at- tack, and yet again struck with his first delivery as he bowled James Hildreth behind his legs. But it was too little too late as Trescothick plundered more fours as he raced to his fifty from 29 balls before being dropped at cover next delivery. Pollard then glanced Cosgrove for four, and after a flurry of singles, the West Indian ended the contest as he lofted Croft straight for six to win the game with nineteen balls to spare.

twenty-five Years Ago – From the 1986 Glamorgan Yearbook


“Glamorgan scored 58 in their first innings against Sussex at Hove, and 447 in their second – a record difference of 389 runs.”


“Glamorgan beat Somerset on three occasions at Taunton in the space of eighteen days in May, winning the Championship match by nine wickets, the Sunday League contest by two wickets and the Benson and Hedges Cup game by 93 runs.”


“All eleven Middlesex players bowled in the second innings of the Championship game at Cardiff – the first time that all opposing players had bowled in a first-class game in Wales.”


“A highly encouraging feature of the 2nd XI season was the performance of Stephen James. He


is a sound opening bat with a good technique. Stephen is now a first year student at Swansea University and will be available again at the end of the Summer Term.”
