Colin Ingram’s rollicking form continued with a magnificent century off 56 balls as Glamorgan ran up 184 in the T20 Blast match against Essex.
On Friday night, he hammered six fours and seven sixes, at a strike rate of 180.3 to reach an unbeaten 101.
His hitting was so ferocious at the death that his second fifty came off just 17 balls and included five of the sixes
But once again, he was left profoundly frustrated as rain intervened to stop the match and reduucng all his efforts to a statistic.
It was his second hundred in four days, following his 107 in a One-Day Cup match against Essex, and a week previously, his 54 and 3-20 secured Glamorgan’s place in the T20 quarter-finals with two league matches to go.
It was not a chanceless innings. The South African lefthander survived when on 24 and 57, with James Foster missing a stumping down legside and Dan Lawrence himself spilling an up-and-under at long-off.
There was not much in the way of support, though; his captain Jacques Rudolph was next best with 28 off 19.
Farhaan Behardien was another to be left frustrated. He put 48 off 26 balls (6×1, 1×6) into Leicestershire’s 170-4 in 18 overs a rain-hit match. Cameron Delport contributed 19 off 13. But with further delays, Notts were given a total of 141 off 14 overs, which they knocked off in 10.3
Elsewhere, Alviro Petersen added his 27 off 33 as Lancashire scraped together 124-5. It was more than enough, for Warwickshire were throttled, being held to 98-8
Rory Kleinveldt came under a bit of pressure, conceding 38 from his four overs when Yorkshire piled up 177-5. Northants, still without the injured Richard Levi, fell 14 runs short, with Kleinveldt restricted to 13 off 12.
Ryan McLaren‘s two early wickets helped Hamshire to an 83-run win over Somerset. He reduced the visitors to 29-2 as they chased 181 to win. he wasn’t needed again on the bowling front as Liam Dawson’s left-arm spin snapped up 5-17. Earlier he had added 13 off 6 to Hampshire’s total.
