NatWest Trophy

Glamorgan adjusted better to the wet conditions at Canterbury to finish the shortened day with the advantage over Kent in their NatWest fourth-round match. If as expected they complete their victory tomorrow it will be the third time they have reached the quarter-final in four years. At 65-1 from 13 overs they require just 57 runs to beat Kent who could manage only 121 runs from 48.4 overs.

Matthew Maynard set the ball rolling for Glamorgan by asking Kent to bat after he had called correctly. The batsmen were unable to get the quicker bowlers away. Alex Wharf unsettled the home batsmen further by dismissing Alan Wells, Rahul Dravid and Matthew Walker and Adrian Dale accounted for James Hockley and Alan Ealham. It could have been worse for the home side who were then 66-6 but Paul Nixon (38 n.o.) pushed the total into three figures.

Glamorgan's start was far more positive in spite of losing Matthew Elliott (21) not long before stumps. Keith Newell (30 n.o.) seems to have the measure of bowlers who sensed that their own total was too small. The Kentish batsmen hit only four boundaries - which their Welsh rivals have exceeded already by six.
