Glamorgan beat Surrey by 78 runs

Glamorgan Dragons made a winning start to their NatWest Pro40 Division Two campaign with a 78-run success over Surrey Brown Caps in Cardiff.

The Dragons slumped to 43-4 after opting to bat first, but their innings was revived by a 108-run fifth-wicket stand between Tom Maynard and Mark Wallace in 18 overs.

Maynard, who is the 19-year-old son of Glamorgan coach Matthew, struck eight fours and a six on his way to 65 off 62 balls before being run out.

Wallace kept up the momentum with an 80-ball innings 85 that saw the hosts up to 216-7 from their 40-over allocation.

Surrey seamer Jade Dernbach removed Wallace at the death to finish with 3-50.

The visitors' run chase never looked likely to be successful after the top three all fell cheaply.

Gillespie strikes

Former Australian paceman Jason Gillespie (2-24) accounted for opening pair Scott Newman (4) and James Benning (28), while David Harrison (1-24) followed-up by having key man Mark Ramprakash (11) caught behind.

And spin duo Robert Croft (3-23) and Dean Cosker (2-26) then shared five wickets to turn the game decisively Glamorgan's way.

Only youngster Matthew Sprigel (44no) provided any resistance as Surrey slumped to 138 all out in 33.2 overs.

The defeat leaves the Brown Caps bottom of the Division Two table having lost their opening two games.
