    dragons that reminds me I must ring the wife County declared on their overnight score of 320 7 Nick Selman and Scott Thornton opened the innings for Glamorgan against an opening attack of Grant Thornton Cathedral End and Archie Ogden River End Selman did not take at all long to settle in and completely dominated the opening partnership with Scott Thornton The pair added 51 for the first wicket of which Selman s contribution was 47 Scott Thornton 3 went caught at second slip by Tom Cullen from the second ball of Tom Wells spell having replaced Thornton at the Cathedral End Josh Hollins replaced Ogden at the River End and soon had a very confident caught behind appeal against Tom Smith turned down Selman went to his 50 from 53 balls 12x4 Skipper Jigar Naik was shuffling his bowlers about in an effort to get a breakthrough With the score on 99 Selman 78 finally went caught at short mid on by Eben Kurtz off the bowling of Naik Glamorgan went into lunch on 149 2 from 34 overs Smith 43 and Carlson 24 This pair then proceeded to give County a gruelling afternoon session notching up a partnership of 247 for the third wicket Milestones along the way included 50 partnership from 61 balls 100 partnership from 113 balls 150 partnership from 156 balls 200 partnership from 193 balls Smith s 50 came up from 72 balls 9x4 and his century from 105 balls 16x4 1x6 Smith going to his century with a pulled maximum over mid wicket off Ogden much to the dismay of Hilda and Stan Smith s 150 came up from 133 balls 21x4 3x6 and immediately afterwards Carlson got his 100 from 110 balls 13x4 Earlier Carlson had posted his 50 from 59 balls

    are familiar with the SWALEC a no go area for anyone who suffers from vertigo I have overcome my vertigo after surveying the Premier League table over the last couple of days enjoying the lofty heights of LCFC After a leisurely perusal of the morning papers I settled back into my chair to observe the days events that were about to unfold in this corner of the Principality Leicestershire fielded a side comprising of only three contracted players the remainder of the side consisting of members of the academy and triallists Jigar Naik skippered County lost the toss and Dean Cosker the Glamorgan skipper invited County to bat Eben Kurtz and Will Wright both left handers opened up for County against an opening attack of Mat Pillans a very pacey South African from Natal and Andrew Westphal Kurtz and Wright built a solid foundation combating the pace of Pillans well both batsmen hitting to the ropes in successive balls in the 9 th and 11 th overs respectively The score had progressed to 54 when Kurtz 27 edged the first ball of Palash Joshi s spell who had replaced Westphal at the River End to keeper Alex Milton Joe Kendall joined Wright but the young prospect soon departed without scoring when he was caught at square leg by Kiran Carlson off seamer Jack Murphy who had replaced Pillans at the Cathedral End His namesake who is the MP for Leicester West will be hoping she gets a better return in the Labour Party Leadership ballot Tom Wells joined Wright and Wells eased to 14 when he was expertly caught by Scott Thornton at third slip diving to his left off Pillans Michael Burgess joined Wright and the pair took County into lunch on 101 3 from 32 overs In the second over after lunch Wright 44 went caught behind by Alex Milton another victim for Pillans Burgess then proceeded to play some lovely shots around the wicket finding the ropes on seven occasions He had been joined by Tom Cullen who was about to embark on a rock like innings Burgess 35 then proceeded to give spinner Owen Morgan the charge and was bowled Sam Evans joined Cullen and the pair built a magnificent partnership Their 50 partnership came up after 151 balls with the score on 202 5 from 62 5 overs Cullen went to his 50 from 86 balls 6x4 and they took County into tea on 234 5 from 76 overs During the afternoon session spinners Cosker and Morgan had bowled very economical spells Glamorgan took the new ball after 80 overs and Cullen and Evans stood up to the challenge The 100 partnership came up from 239 balls Evans 49 was dismissed when Pillans went round the wicket to him and from the second ball of him doing so a vicious lifter glanced off Evans gloves and went through to keeper Alex Milton This was a terrific innings from Evans who had shown patience and maturity

    th wickets Trego then hammered an unbeaten 71 off just 31 deliveries including seven fours and six maximums as the visitors got home inside 15 overs There were two changes to the Foxes side as Dan Redfern and White came into the side in place of Rob Sayer and Clint McKay who missed out due to illness It was a second debut for White and Zak Chappell was making his first appearance for Leicestershire at Grace Road Former Leicestershire all rounder Jim Allenby called correctly and opted to bowl first on an overcast morning and it proved a great toss to win County lost three wickets with the score on six including two in three balls to Josh Davey The Scotland international had Angus Robson 1 caught behind by Alex Barrow before trapping Lewis Hill 0 leg before Tim Groenewald then dismissed Niall O Brien 4 as Trego took the catch in the cordon Aadil Ali 7 and Redfern 13 were paired together without scoring and that is never an ideal scenario Three more wickets were lost to Gregory when he came on as first change seamer Ali was held at slip by Allenby while Redfern was bowled and Andrea Agathangelou 2 edged to Barrow as the Foxes slipped to 38 6 Eckersley and Taylor regrouped with a gutsy seventh wicket partnership the latter striking three fours in 25 before being bowled by Trego There was a positive start from White who struck four early boundaries as the score moved into three figures in the 31 st over Eckersley had battled hard to post 29 from 61 balls but he was the eighth wicket to fall with the score at 117 as Allenby claimed a return catch That wicket brought about the end of the innings as Max Waller dismissed

    Redfern 26 and Alex Thomson 0 Redfern was dismissed from the fifth ball of the morning caught in the slip cordon by Matt Carter off the bowling of Luke Wood without adding to his overnight score Taylor joined Thomson and the pair looked comfortable against the seam attack of Fletcher and Wood I half expected to see Dougie Freedman s head appear between the bushes bordering the Lady Bay Road that backs up to the Forest Ground upon hearing the names of Taylor and Fletcher mentioned in the same breath Gary Taylor Fletcher ex LCFC and NFFC for the uninitiated Taylor was playing a dominant role in the partnership and found the ropes on regular occasions He raced to his 50 from 37 balls 10x4 by smashing seamer Andy Carter through the covers for four from three consecutive balls Taylor had certainly got the measurements of Carter and it was a solid half century from the left hander who was fitting in well to the situation Thomson 11 finally departed when he edged the first delivery of Will Gidman s spell to Dan Christian at first slip A good effort from Thomson as nightwatchman who had put plenty of oil in his lamp in soaking up 56 balls Seriously Thomson has much more to his armoury as a batsman than nightwatchman which is evident when watching him bat a proper player Michael Burgess joined Taylor and became the third batsman to perish with his score on 11 when he was caught behind by keeper Tom Moores off the bowling of Gidman Will Gidman was bowling a very impressive spell from the River End returning figures of 2 26 off 11 overs at lunch County went into lunch on 152 5 from 43 overs Taylor 67 and Wells 16 Cloud cover hung over the ground as play resumed after lunch but for now the rain was keeping away Taylor and Wells continued to build a good partnership after lunch but immediately after the score had reached 200 Taylor 86 was bowled by spinner Matt Carter Tom Cullen joined Wells and the pair added 42 for the seventh wicket Wells went to his 50 7x4 1x6 from 79 balls when he deposited Matt Carter for a huge maximum Wells was made sure to Get Carter and my name is not Michael Caine Three overs later Wells 64 went lbw to Luke Wood Cullen had to face a barrage of short pitched bowling from Andy Carter and stuck manfully to the task despite receiving a clattering blow on the helmet Cullen 19 was eventually undone by Carter when one of his stumps wheeled out of the ground leaving County at 264 8 from 69 2 overs Wayne White had entered the fray earlier and was circumspectly accumulating runs around the wicket Jigar Naik 8 went bowled by Matt Carter and last man Connor Harvey 11 was lbw to Adam Tillcock White was unbeaten on 24 from 62 balls with Leicestershire all out for
