One-Day Cup: Glamorgan ease to win over Middlesex
|Royal London One-Day Cup, Swalec Stadium|
|Glamorgan 175-3 (36.2 overs) beat Middlesex 174-8 (50 overs) by seven wickets|
Opener Jim Allenby set the platform for Glamorgan's seven-wicket One-Day Cup victory over Middlesex.
Allenby (70) and Jacques Rudolph (61) put on 136 for the first wicket to help the hosts ease to their victory target with more than 13 overs to spare.
Earlier, Middlesex slumped to 90-8 with Michael Hogan (3-46) and David Lloyd (3-25) doing most of the damage.
Neil Dexter (43 not out) and Steven Finn (42 not out) put on 84 to push Middlesex to a modest 174-8.
Middlesex's demise started with Dawid Malan's golden duck in the first over and they were 33-3 in the 11th over when captain Eoin Morgan was out for four.
The innings never properly recovered and 22-year-old Lloyd, on his one-day debut, got rid of Toby Roland-Jones and Tim Murtagh for ducks, before patient batting from Dexter and Finn at least gave the visitors a target to defend.
Rudolph and Allenby quickly took Glamorgan past 100 with no real alarm, before Mark Wallace (21 not out) and Chris Cooke (10 not out) saw the hosts to a comfortable victory.
