Glamorgan v Gloucestershire

Season Ends With Defeat

LV=County Championship - 24 September 2013
Glamorgan won by 8 wkts

Venue: Cardiff

Day Four

Glamorgan rounded off the LV= County Championship season with a convincing eight-wicket win over Gloucestershire on the final day of their Division Two encounter at Cardiff.

With only 102 required for victory, Murray Goodwin helped to guide Glamorgan home with 50 not out on a day when 12 wickets fell. That was after Gloucestershire had been skittled for only 132 in their second innings.

Jim Allenby claimed four for 16 to go with his 85 in the first innings as Glamorgan, who took 22 points to Gloucestershire’s five, registered their third fourth-day win of the campaign.

After day three had been a complete wash-out, Glamorgan had resumed their first innings on 271 for nine – four runs behind Gloucestershire.

But last pair Michael Hogan and Dean Cosker ended up putting on 62 for the final wicket to leave Glamorgan 306 all out – a lead of 31.

Any hopes of Gloucestershire saving the game, however, evaporated as they were bowled out in their second innings in 44.3 overs.

The visitors managed to wipe out the arrears but then lost their first wicket with the score on 35 when Chris Dent edged Hogan.

Gloucestershire accelerated to 73 for one but then came a dramatic pre-lunch collapse when they lost four wickets for five runs in 13 balls, with Ruaidhri Smith and Allenby doing the damage.

It started when Graham Wagg took a good catch at extra cover to dismiss Gareth Roderick from Allenby.

Smith took two wickets in an over. He bowled Alex Gidman and then had Ian Cockbain caught behind.

And in the next over Allenby trapped Will Gidman leg before. It left Gloucestershire reeling at 78 for five at lunch – just 47 runs ahead.

After the interval, Cameron Herring was caught behind, and, while Hamish Marshall completed 1,000 runs for the season, he lost Benny Howell, who was bowled by Hogan.

Allenby made further inroads when he had Smith caught behind as Gloucestershire lost their eighth wicket on 118.

Wagg found Marshall’s edge with the busy Allenby holding onto the catch at slip to leave Gloucestershire on 122 for nine.

Graeme McCarter was last man out, caught and bowled by Allenby shortly before tea.

In reply, Glamorgan lost Gareth Rees to the second ball of the innings and then Ben Wright for 17 in the 11th over. But Goodwin, 50 from 106 balls, and Chris Cooke steered Glamorgan to the winning post with 11.3 overs to spare.

Day Three

No play possible because of rain.

Day Two

Honours were left even at stumps on day two of Glamorgan’s LV= County Championship Division Two clash with Gloucestershire at Cardiff.

Will Gidman starred for the visitors with four for 64, while Jim Allenby scored 85 for Glamorgan as they reached 271 for nine in response to to Gloucestershire’s 275 all out.

Gloucestershire had resumed their first innings on 228 for eight after only 82.1 overs had been possible on the first day because of bad light during the final hour.

Glamorgan had probably hoped to wrap up the visiting innings quickly but it took the bowlers almost 23 overs to claim the final two wickets during which Gloucestershire added 47 runs.

Tom Smith and Graeme McCarter rode their luck early on but stayed around to register Gloucestershire’s second batting point.

Slow left-armer Dean Cosker was twice lofted back over his head for fours by McCarter before Allenby trapped him leg before .

From 263 for nine, Gloucestershire added 12 more runs before Allenby struck again when Matt Taylor was caught by Ben Wright at backward point.

Glamorgan suffered a setback in their reply as they found themselves reduced to 47 for three.

In the final over before lunch Gareth Rees edged McCarter to Chris Dent at second slip.

Glamorgan lost a second wicket in the third over after the interval as Wright was trapped leg before by Gidman.

And the mini-collapse was complete when veteran Murray Goodwin, who had opened, edged Taylor the into Dent’s hands at third slip.

But Chris Cooke and Allenby rescued the Welsh county from their shaky predicament, putting on 56 for the fourth wicket.

Allenby played positively driving his first two deliveries from Taylor for four but he had a life when Ian Cockbain dropped him at third slip off Gidman

Cooke also played well in completing a 64-ball half century but, shortly after, Taylor broke through his defences to leave Glamorgan 103 for four which became 130 for four by tea.

After tea, David Lloyd perished when he edged to Dent at second slip off Gidman, who then had skipper Mark Wallace caught behind to leave the home side 147 for six.

But Allenby continued, completing an 68-ball fifty, before he lost Graham Wagg lbw to McCarter.

Ruaidhri Smith brought up the 200 but he lost Allenby, who edged Taylor into the hands of the busy Dent at second slip.

Smith was the ninth man out before Cosker and Michael Hogan put on an unbeaten 27 for the final wicket by stumps.

Day One

Seamer Michael Hogan claimed his 100th wicket of the season as Glamorgan restricted Gloucestershire on the opening day of their LV= County Championship match at Cardiff.

Gloucestershire had reached 228 for eight in their first innings from 82.1 overs when bad light ended play at 5.30pm.

It was Glamorgan’s first game since they went down to Nottinghamshire in last Saturday’s Yorkshire Bank 40 final at Lord’s.

The Welsh county made three changes to their side which drew last week with Essex at Chelmsford with Jim Allenby, Graham Wagg and David Lloyd replacing Will Bragg, Andrew Salter and John Glover.

Hogan struck at the start of the seventh over to reach the landmark by bowling opener Gareth Roderick.

That was after Glamorgan won the toss and put Gloucestershire in to bat in helpful bowling conditions.

Hogan now has 64 wickets in the Championship, 28 in the Yorkshire Bank 40 and eight in the Friends Life t20.

But from 12 for one Gloucestershire recovered either side of lunch with Dent reaching his half-century from 77 balls shortly before the interval.

By lunch the visitors looked quite well set but in the afternoon they struggled going from 90 for one to 176 for six.

With the total on 90 Allenby bowled Alex Gidman and Dent, who had looked well set for a century edged slow left armer Dean Cosker into the Australian’s hands at slip.

Cosker struck again next ball to have Iain Cockbain also caught at slip by Allenby from a turning delivery.

With the total on 156 Gloucestershire lost Hamish Marshall, who is 10 short of reaching 1,000 runs for the season, as he edged Wagg behind.

In the penultimate over before tea Cameron Herring was trapped lbw by Hogan.

Ruaidhri Smith struck twice bowling Benny Howell and then had Gidman caught behind.

Glamorgan took the second new ball, but with the cloud cover having increased, the light deteriorated and forced the players off with 13.5 overs left of the day.
