Match scorecard

Simon Kerrigan and Glen Chapple shared nine wickets as Lancashire snatched a dramatic 14-run win over Glamorgan.

Simon Katich (65) and Kyle Hogg (47) played vital innings as the visitors were bowled out for 272, setting Glamorgan a target of 153.

Will Bragg hit 61 as the hosts reached a healthy 103-3, but the last seven wickets fell for 36 runs in 17 overs.

Spinner Kerrigan (5-32) and captain Chapple (4-64) ran through the lower order to win it with a day to spare.

Having resumed on 104-4, Lancashire were only 45 runs to the good when Katich was caught behind off John Glover, but a stand of 44 between Gareth Cross (30) and Chapple (26), then another of 63 between Cross and Hogg at least set Glamorgan a target.

However, once Bragg had been bowled by Chapple after hitting a six and nine fours in an aggressive 66-ball innings, the rest of the batting was flimsy.

Slow left-armer Kerrigan took the last three wickets in successive overs to finish with match figures of 9-80, ending the game when he had Michael Hogan caught on the boundary by Ashwell Prince.
