Trego fires Middlesex


Vs: Glamorgan

Match: TOM1

Venue: Sophia Gardens

Day 2

Middlesex forced Glamorgan to follow on 302 runs behind, and at the close of play Glamorgan were 79-2 in their second innings.

Resuming from their overnight score of 396-6, Middlesex lost Ben Scott without adding to his score, when Harrison bowled him without offering a shot. Peter Trego joined Dalrymple and this pair savaged the Glamorgan bowling adding 122 runs for the eighth wicket in 15 overs.

Jamie Dalrymple reached his first century of the season before being caught by Wharf off Harrison for 108 (off 143 balls, 1 six & 12 fours). Trego reached a fifty off only 38 balls, and was on course for the fastest hundred of the season when he was bowled for 70 scored off 54 balls (3 sixes & 6 fours).

Harrison then bowled last man Betts first ball to finish with 5-117 as Middlesex were all out for 534.

The Glamorgan openers Wallace and Cherry safely negotiated the nine overs bowled before lunch, but Trego had Wallace caught in the fist over after the resumption. Betts then bowled Cherry for 14, before Trego took his second wicket when he bowled Hemp for 22.

Sourav Ganguly was run out having made only four, and Hughes was caught at slip off Trego for 7 to leave Glamorgan on 103-5. Peter Trego finished a fine spell of bowling with figures of 3-52 in 13 overs.

Scott Styris came on, and in his second over he trapped Grant leg before for one, and he trapped Powell, again leg before in his following over. Wharf struck Styris for five boundaries before the bowler had his revenge having him caught by Trego for 21.

Jamie Dalrymple then bowled Harrison for five to reduce Glamorgan to 172-9. With Waters blocking one end, Glamorgan captain Robert Croft went on the offensive, reaching a run-a-ball fifty and going on to make 84 before occasional bowler Ed Joyce did the trick with his third delivery having him caught by Chris Peploe at third man.

Following on, Glamorgan lost Cherry caught behind off Betts in the third over of their innings. Betts had to receive treatment for a dislocated finger, but it did not affect his bowling hand as he bowled Hemp with his second delivery after the treatment.

Hughes and Wallace took Glamorgan to 79-2 at the close, still 223 runs behind Middlesex.
