Gillespie fires Glamorgan to win

NatWest Pro 40 D2, Swalec Stadium:
Glamorgan 218-7 beat Warwickshire 88 by 130 runs

A spell of devastating bowling from Jason Gillespie helped Glamorgan to a comfortable victory over Warwickshire.

The Australian ended with figures of 5-13 as the Bears were dismissed for just 88 in reply to the Dragons' 218-7.

Gillespie removed Jonathan Trott first ball and did not look back as Warwickshire's batsman failed to cope with his bowling.

Tom Maynard had earlier top-scored for Glamorgan with 67 and the win sees them move up to third in the table.

Maynard, 19, shared in a fourth-wicket partnership of 108 which helped rescue Glamorgan after they had reached only 77-3 with 18 overs bowled.

David Hemp and Robert Croft put on 54 for the first wicket, but at the other end Chris Martin kept things tight with his six overs only going for 10 before Tim Groenewald had Hemp caught at backward point.

Darren Maddy took 2-16 as Warwickshire tried to force themselves into the game, but Maynard's steady performance ensured Glamorgan posted a respectable total.

It proved to be more than enough as Gillespie set about dismissing the opposing batsmen with relative ease.

After removing Trott, Gillespie also dismissed Jim Troughton in the first over.

James Harris got in on the act to remove Ian Westwood and Darren Maddy in each of his first two overs and at one point Warwickshire were eight wickets down having scored just 29 runs.

They were spared further embarrassment thanks to the ninth wicket partnership of Tim Groenewald and Chris Woakes who put on 45, but Warwickshire were bowled out with 50 balls of the innings remaining.
