Match Report Summary 2010











West Glamorgan

188 for 9









Gwent won

by 1 wicket

West Glamorgan got off to a good start and reached 115 for 1. as the Gwent pace bowlers bowled with a good line and length. Ben Wellington took the next two West Glamorgan wickets as Gwent fought back and at 121 for 4 in the 26 over the game was evenly poised.  A total in excess of 200 looked possible but Scott Greaves took three wickets and Luke Harris two to reduce West Glamorgan to 187 for 9 in their 40 0vers.

Gwent they got off to a great start as Jack Thorp Yon dominated the West Glamorgan attack and the side reached 100 without loss in twenty overs.  Matthew Jones was gaining in confidence at the other end after a sticky start and Gwent were now in complete control and cruising to win at 156 for 0 in the Thirty-first over.  There then followed an inexplicable collapse with Gwent losing 9 wickets for just 31 runs in 7 overs. Thorp Yon kept his head, when all about him were seemingly losing theirs, and a bye eventually ensured Gwent lifted the trophy. He finished with his second ton of the week and a remarkable average of 258!

A Ben Wellington wicket left them reeling on 19 for 3 after 8 overs.  Gwent then turned to spin with just as much success as Matthew Jones was unplayable taking four wickets for just five runs in six overs with a fine display of leg spin bowling.

Gwent had no such trouble as openers, Matthew Jones and Ben Wellington, reached the target in just 10.

George Lewis and Nathan Hariharan then completely outclassed the Hereford attack as they hit the balls to all parts.  Hariharan in particular was dismissive of the bowling hitting 5 sixes and 9 fours in a superb innings of 100no.  Their unbeaten third wicket stand of 149  between these two was very impressive Gwent eventually amassed 293 for 3. Lewis finished on a fine 63no.

When Dorset batted they found the Gwent attack a different proposition as their line and length was much better.  Gwent reduced Dorset to 65 for 3 in 15 overs as Henry Breeze struck twice and Harris once.  Dorset never recovered and lost wickets at regular intervals and finished well short of the Gwent total.
