NatWest T20 Blast: Glamorgan v Somerset abandoned
Glamorgan and Somerset shared the spoils and claimed a point each at Cardiff, where the match was abandoned after just 17.2 overs of Glamorgan’s innings.
Despite a thirty five minute delay because of rain there was no reduction in overs and after winning the toss Somerset elected to bowl first.
There was immediate success when Lewis Gregory, with the second ball of his first over, had David Lloyd caught down the leg side by wicketkeeper Steve Davies for a single. Aneurin Donald however was soon into his stride, pulling Craig Overton for four before sweeping him over the wicketkeeper for six.
Colin Ingram, who scored a 46-ball century against Sussex last week, then struck Tim Groenewald for fourteen runs in the over which included a huge six fourteen rows back into the members enclosure.
Somerset then took their second wicket when Donald skied Gregory to mid-on after scoring 24 from 13 balls, but Ingram kept attacking, hitting Allenby for another six, before he was caught on the mid-wicket boundary for 39 from 21 balls. Glamorgan were 92 for 3 at the halfway stage, but then lost their fourth wicket when Andrew Salter was well held by Max Waller off his own bowling.
Jacques Rudolph and Chris Cooke maintained the momentum with a rapid partnership of 52 in only 4.2 overs, which ended when Cooke struck a full toss from Groenewald to mid-off. Rudolph then reached his 50 from only 28 balls, which included four fours and two sixes with Glamorgan reaching 158 for five after 16 overs.
After another eight balls were bowled, the rain returned with the home county on 171 for five after 17.2 overs.
Somerset now travel to Uxbridge to face Middlesex tomorrow at 2.30pm start.Back to News
