Bopara inspires Essex to victory
Totesport League D1, Chelmsford: Essex 217-5 beat Glamorgan 216-7 by five wickets

Essex batsmen Ravinder Bopara made a career-best 96 not out to rescue his side's run chase and earn them victory over Glamorgan.

Glamorgan made 216-7 and had their opponents in major trouble at 31-4 in the 10th over.

But together with team-mates James Middlebrook (46) and James Foster (38), Bopara turned the match on its head.

Dale Steyn was Essex's best bowler with 3-34, and he was backed up by Middlebrook's economical spell.
