Glamorgan v Worcestershire, LVCC2, Cardiff, 04-07/05/14

It's always nice to get the cricket season up and running, and, with being away on hols for the first home match, it was the visit of Worcestershire which formed the basis of my first live cricket of the summer.

Truth be told Glamorgan were 2nd best for most of it, as the match was dominated by the batting of Worcester captain Daryl Mitchell, who hit 109 and 151 not out. He probably delayed their declaration a little too long at the back end of Day 3, as ultimately Glamorgan hung on for a draw.

It didn't look like that though when they were 38/4 chasing an unlikely 382 for victory. It was the battling qualities of skipper Mark Wallace with a patient 47 (to go with an unbeaten 51 in the first dig) plus the much improved Will Bragg with 91 not out who saved the day for the home county.

The scorecard is here.
