Foxes undone by Dalrymple spell

Glamorgan v Leicestershire

5 - 8 August 2009
CLOSE OF PLAY, DAY ONE: Leicestershire 313 Glamorgan 45-1 (Leics 3pts, Glamorgan 3pts)

Jamie Dalrymple
Dalrymple broke a sixth-wicket stand of 59 between New and Du Toit

Jamie Dalrymple took three crucial wickets as Leicestershire faltered after a good start on day one against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay.

The visitors were eyeing a big total as Boeta Dippenaar (58) and HD Ackerman (92) shared 152 for the third wicket.

But, after James Harris (3-90) broke that partnership, Dalrymple (3-11) removed Tom New and Jacques du Toit as Leicestershire were bowled out for 313.

Glamorgan progressed comfortably to 45-0 by the close of play.

Will Bragg was unbeaten on 21 and Gareth Rees 20 not out.

But Leicestershire will have been kicking themselves after not building on the platform laid by Dippenaar and Ackerman.

They came together with their side 8-2 after Greg Smith was adjudged leg before to Harris and Chris Thompson, on debut, was caught behind off David Harrison for a 13-ball duck.

Ackerman survived a scare on 46 when Mark Wallace put down a sharp chance off Adam Shantry to make his half-century off 57 balls as the South African pair saw Leicestershire through to 125-2 at lunch.

Their partnership was worth 152 when Harris struck, bowling Ackerman off an inside edge before trapping James Taylor leg before to leave the Foxes 174-4.

Dippenaar then followed, bowled taking a swipe at Dean Cosker before New (45) and Du Toit (42) added 59 for the sixth wicket.

But both fell to Dalrymple to catches by Tom Maynard at slip in the space of two overs as Leicestershire lost their last five wickets for 39.
