136 all out





210 for 6




Gwent won by

74 runs

Mid Glamorgan won the toss and elected to bowl on a good flat dry track but Gwent got off to a fine start as Tom Bevington and Luc Kear put on 40 for the first wicket before Bevington was out bowled by Hughes for 25Gwent lost their second wicket in the fifteenth over and then Captain Luc Kear for 24 in the nineteenth.   At 73 for 3 the game was evenly poised, but a good partnership by Rob Williams and James Scarborough of 41 put Gwent back on top before Scarborough was out for 18. Gwent were putting together a number of useful partnership as a fifth wicket partnership of 40 runs by Rob Williams and Hywel Rose proved.  This put them in a strong position at 154 for 4 in the thirty-third overWilliams was out for a fine 46, but Rose and Darnell Taylor-Wood put on 36 quickly as Gwent amassed a challenging total with Rose finishing undefeated on 38 not out.

When Mid Glamorgan batted they got off to a poor start as the Gwent opening attack bowled a good line and length with Rose getting opener Scot Thornton out in the sixth over.  They then recovered thanks to a good partnership of 80 runs between Hughes and Roberts, but it was slow as the Gwent bowlers made it hard work for them.  Gwent turned to the spin of Hugh Morris with great effect as he demolished the Mid Glam batting with a fine spell of off spin taking 5 wickets in his 8 overs; this included a hat-trick.  He was well supported by Luc Kear and James Scarborough who both took two wickets as Mid Glamorgan crumbled to 136 all out.  The bowlers were well supported by a fine all-round performance in the field with some good catches and run-saving fielding.

Best Performances: Hugh Morris 5-25, James Scarborough 2-10, Luc Kear 2-47, Rob Williams 46, Hywel Rose 38no

 1 wicket


Gwent won the toss and elected to bat on a very good wicket.   A steady start by Gwent saw them reach 26 for 0 after 8 overs but they then rather collapsed to 85 for 4 after 20 overs.  It was then a question of a series a small partnerships which eventually took them to 180.  Tom Bevington batted well for his 41 and there were some good shots from James Scarborough who ended up 21no.

Devon  got off to a fine start as they revelled in the batting conditions and reached 82 for 0 after 20 overs. Gwent did well to stop both openers cutting loose, and a good run out followed by 3 further wickets saw them slump to 100 for 4 after 25 overs. Two wickets in the 33rd over, thanks to Jamie Norman's pace, and the game could have gone either way.  With four overs left, Devon needed 22 runs for victory with just two wickets left. Despite losing one more wicket, Devon scraped home with three balls left in an absorbing finish.

Millfield also struggled at the beginning of their innings as Millfield struggled to 20 for 2 in ten overs.  Gwent were bowling a good line and length and, even though Millfield did not lose another wicket until the twenty-third over, they only managed to get to 50 in that time. With 8 overs to go Millfield wanted 60 runs as Gwent's spinners kept the run-rate down.  Millfield were always just behind the clock and finished 7 runs short in the end.  The bowlers were supported by a good fielding display with two run-outs and several catches.

When Berkshire batted they found things tough as both opening bowlers for Gwent kept things tight but they also picked up a wicket as James Scarborough had the Berkshire opener out caught behind for just 8.  After 8 overs Berkshire were 37 for 1, a good partnership developed taking Berkshire  to 74 for 1 before spin bowler Jamie Norman took the second wicket for Gwent.  At 105 for 3 after 25 overs the game still might have been won by Gwent, but another solid partnership by Berkshire put paid to any chance they had as they eventually won with one over to spare.
