Match scorecard

Hampshire have sealed a place in the knockout stages of the One-Day Cup after a four-wicket victory over Glamorgan at Swansea.

Hampshire reached 229-6 despite a mid-innings stutter, thanks to an unbeaten seventh-wicket stand of 85 between Brad Taylor (54) and Gareth Berg (52).

Berg also struck early with the ball, taking 3-46 in Glamorgan's 227 all out.

Colin Ingram top scored with 64, but spinners Mason Crane (4-46) and Brad Taylor (2-51) claimed regular wickets.

Hampshire can earn a home semi-final by beating Somerset in their final match on Wednesday 6 June, while Glamorgan will finish bottom of the South Group, with just one win before their trip to Surrey.

Glamorgan captain Colin Ingram told BBC Sport Wales:

"It wasn't enough runs, we made a few silly errors and although the wicket was slow we didn't adapt enough to that. Waggy (Graham Wagg) and myself got into a great partnership and if we could have batted another 10 or 12 overs, we could have put a real good total on the board. Two of their batters stuck in and got a partnership going, and that was the game.

"As a batting unit, we haven't been as consistent as in the last few years, no big hundreds which has been frustrating from my side, but we've got a bunch of new faces, young guys who are learning. There have been some nice performances but we haven't quite put it together."

Hampshire all-rounder Gareth Berg told BBC Radio Solent:

"Speaking to Waggy in the interval, we felt 260 to 280 would have been a good score on that wicket. I just tried to stay as calm as I can and batting with Brad Taylor, I think we complement each other. BT is a great little player, he's had a great competition with bat and ball.

"It was a massive win, we're on a run of form and that makes it a bit easier heading into Wednesday's game, we want to win every game in this competition."
