Colin Ingram responded with a superb century as Glamorgan chased down a target of 318 to beat Kent in their Royal London One-Day Cup match at Cardiff.
The Warriors captain’s 109, off 106 balls (12×4, 1×6) provided a solid base which enabled his old compatriot, Chris Cooke, the Joburg-born ex-WP player, to unleash an array of shots in smashing an unbeaten 96 off 58 balls, including eight fours and four sixes, securing a three-wicket win with two balls remaining.
Glamorgan had a bad start when Jacques Rudolph was dismissed in the third over without scoring, but in partnership with Will Bragg, Ingram counter-attacked and reached his fifty from 47 balls. He went on more sedately to his first century in any format for Glamorgan before being caught behind..
Richard Levi also faltered as Surrey comprehensively beat Northamptonshire by 220 runs. He was bowled first ball by (Joburg-born) Jade Derbach, who went on to record the impressive figures of 2-13 off five. Surrey’s tough target was based on a score of 108 by (Durban-born) JJ Roy. He contributed to an opening stand of 195 with Steve Davies (99), being particularly harsh on Rory Kleinveldt, who went for 55 off six overs.
