Match Scoreboard

Glamorgan skipper Kiran Carlson led forward as his team beat Durham by 58 points to win the One Day Cup final at Trent Bridge.

It was the first knockout trophy for the Welsh side in 58 years of trying out in front of 7,200 supporters.

Carlson scored the best with 82 as Glamorgan knocked out his entire batting order after 296-6 in his 50 overs.

But Durham failed, eliminated 46th for 238 while Sean Dickson ran out of partners on 84 steps.

It was fitting for 40-year-old Michael Hogan to take the final wicket, but spinner Andrew Salter had done the main damage earlier, taking 3-42, openers Alex Lees and Graham Clark and David Bedingham’s scalp.

Having already hit 33 out of 22 balls to help Durham rally to a rattling of wickets mid-inning, it earned Salter the Man of the Match award.

Glamorgan entered this tournament on the back of a embarrassing defeat by the minor counties of Wales team.

But they responded well, losing just two of their eight qualifiers to finish top of their group, before beating Essex in the semi-finals on Monday.

And it allowed Glamorgan’s predominantly young team to end their previous record of failure in knockout competitions.

Their previous three Lord’s finals have yielded only runner-up medals, against Middlesex in the 1977 Gillette Cup, when the only highlight was Mike Llewellyn’s huge six on the pavilion, Gloucestershire in the 2000 Benson & Hedges Cup and Notts in the YB40 2013.

And on two previous trips to the T20 Finals Day, in 2003 and 2017, they came out in the semi-finals.

It was also particularly satisfying to win with the team that had led them to the final, leaving out four players who had been absent for the Cent service, while Durham opted to bring in bowlers Ben Raine and Matty Potts.

Much like his Durham teammate Matty Potts, Ben Raine returned from The Hundred to take three wickets, but both ended up on the losing side.

Execute at the bottom of the command

Glamorgan’s total was made up of contributions throughout the order, as 10 of their 11 drummers made double digits except for Billy Root, who got a golden duck – to top off a few bad days. for the Root brothers.

Following the loss of Hamish Rutherford and Steve Reingold, as both registered, Glamorgan’s innings focused on the 106-point third wicket between captain Carlson, of whom he made 81, and opener Nick Selman.

But Potts then ripped the heart out of Glamorgan’s middle order when, with back-to-back deliveries, he struck out Selman for 36 and old Notts Root the first ball on his old ground. In his next over, he then had Carlson too, caught behind. And, at 160-5, things suddenly seemed a little bleak for Glamorgan.

But the tail wagged, first with a stand of 43 between Joe Cooke (29) and Tom Cullen (24), then Salter’s key contribution, 15 for James Weighell and 33 more for the final wicket between Lukas Carey ( 17 steps) and Michael Hogan (12 did not come out).

This effectively included nine of what should have been the last ball, when Potts threw a full waist-high pitch, Hogan hammered it for six, they had two for no-ball then another single, one bye scrambled, out of the extra delivery.

Durham’s response

Durham got off to a good start, dropping to 45-0 over 10 overs, only for Salter, the non-spinner, to hit twice in three overs.

First, he took Lees off with a bullet that spun sharply to cut the left-hander’s stump, then Graham Clark, looking for an eighth limit, broke through to the middle of the wicket.

Glamorgan was in dreamland then when they bagged Durham skipper Scott Borthwick and South African dangerman David Bedingham for a fifth ball duck in successive overs.

Cameron Bancroft forged a potentially life-saving 85-point partnership with Sean Dickson, but the Australian skied Steve Reingold to replace deep square-leg outfielder Andy Gorvin.

Raine and Luke Doneathy both headed for the skiers, before goaltender Tom Cullen managed a superb dive to send Potts to pack the second ball.

Liam Trevaskis then broke the long limit and Chris Rushworth went on to the next ball to finish it, caught by his former internship mate Hogan.

Le polyvalent Glamorgan Andrew Salter :

“It’s huge for us. Coming here with a young and fairly inexperienced team and beating such a strong team makes things even more enjoyable.

“We wanted to make the supporters proud and it was a great performance.

Durham drummer Sean Dickson:

“You still continue to believe. A few more partnerships could have allowed us to cross the line.

“We have played exceptional cricket in this competition and we can hold our heads high.

“There are great things to come. Some of our young players really raised their hands. “
