Glamorgan Dragons v Kent spitfires at the sWALeC stadium, 16th July 2010


scorers: A K Hignell and J C Foley


It was perhaps fitting after their inconsistent performances throughout the Twenty20 campaign that the Dragons should end on a damp note at Cardiff as they suffered their tenth defeat in the competition with the final match ending prematurely leav- ing the home side fourteen runs short of the par score when heavy rain fell over the SWALEC Stadium. Chasing a target of 159 on a used wicket, the Dragons had been given another useful start by Mark Cosgrove who recorded his fourth fifty of the tournament. But despite an opening stand of 43 with Will Bragg – on his competition debut after a productive spell with the 2nd XI - the Australian could never really boss the situation and although a flurry of belligerent blows were struck against the spinners by both the southpaw and Tom Maynard, the Dragons were still behind the par score at the halfway stage. Simon Cook completed an accurate spell from the River End during which he pouched the wicket of Maynard as the youngster top-edged a pull, and when Matt Coles returned to dismiss Cosgrove, who miscued to cover after striking a 39-ball fifty, the Spitfires were in the driving seat. Heavy rain then descended over the Cardiff stadium and washed out the rest of the contest with the veil of rain drawing a damp end to the Dragons Twenty20 campaign. Earlier, the visitors has made a brisk start as, after the early departure of James Hockley, a stand between Joe Denly and acting captain Martin van Jaarsveld helped the Spitfires to fly to 40 after just four overs. A brake was applied when the spinners were introduced with Dean Cosker having van Jaarsveld deftly stumped by Mark Wallace, before Shaun Tait returned to clean bowl Denly. Next over, Jamie Dalrymple smartly ran out Geraint Jones and when Azhar Mahmood pulled Dalrymple into mid-wicket’s hands the Spitfires seemed to be in trouble at 72/5 in the 11th over. But Alex Blake chanced his arm, lofting boundaries just out of the reach of both deep backward square-leg and long-off before Darren Stevens hoisted Robert Croft for six and four as, for the first time in the season, the spinner conceded more than 30 runs in his four over quota. Blake’s forthright innings was finally ended by Cosgrove who yorked the young all-rounder, but Stevens continued the late assault as he flat-batted Cosker for six over mid-wicket, before Coles smeared Tait over backward point for four. Two balls later, Coles lost his middle stump as Tait struck again, but Tredwell and Malinga Bandara watchfully accumulated in the closing overs as the Spitfires posted a competitive total and left the Dragons to rue the number of boundaries plundered by the visiting batsmen from short deliveries.
