(Friendly): Glamorgan v Gloucestershire at the sWALeC stadium, 31st March and 1st April 2010 Umpires: R shah and A G Wharf


scorers: A K Hignell and K t Gerrish


Even though 77 overs were lost to rain, this two-day contest provided some meaningful match practice for both sides, with a double forfeiture on the second day, leaving Gloucestershire chasing a target of 272 in 79 overs. Despite some forthright blows from Chris Dent, the England Under 19 batsman, the visitors generally found runs hard to come by against an ac- curate Glamorgan attack for whom David Harrison delivered a frugal second spell and Huw Waters bowled with accuracy, besides getting some lively nip off the surface. The introduction of Robert Croft in the hour before tea helped to further turn the screw, but a torrential downpour three overs after tea put an end to the contest. Earlier in the day, the Glamorgan middle and lower order enjoyed some decent batting practice and were able to consolidate on the decent platform established by Gareth Rees and Michael Powell who had added 72 for the second wicket on the abbreviated first day. As in the one-day game at Northampton, Rees played with both fluency and freedom whilst Powell, after a quiet start, steadily increased his range of strokes until pulling a long hop from Richard Dawson into the hands of mid-wicket shortly having recorded a 110-ball fifty. After their departure, there was a brief cameo from Tom Maynard who struck two lusty sixes before padding up to the spin of Vikram Banerjee. Jim Allenby then played with great assurance and with good timing, as the all-rounder became the third Glamorgan batsman to post a half-century, made from just 62 balls. Allenby had spent the winter appear- ing in Grade cricket in Perth, and the temperatures in which he played back home in Australia must have been over thirty degrees warmer than at those he experienced at the SWALEC Stadium, where sleet and snow interrupted play on the first day, whilst a chill wind blew across the ground on both days making conditions feel more like Bratislava than Bristol. On the second morning, the groundstaff also had to sweep off a thick layer of ice from the protective sheets and hovercover after further wintry showers overnight.
