Billy and Colin were magnificent in the run chase - Harrison

29 Jun 2022 | Cricket

Acting head coach David Harrison was thrilled with the performance of his batters on a tricky wicket as Glamorgan chased down 332 against Worcestershire at New Road to claim 19 points and momentarily move to second place in Division Two of the LV= County Championship.

It was the sixth highest run chase in the Club's history and was led by Colin Ingram (102) and Billy Root who finished 99 not out. Root was ably supported by Tom Cullen and Michael Neser as Glamorgan knocked off the 100 runs they needed for victory on the final day just before lunch.

"The wicket was a strange one, it seemed to ebb and flow like the game, but to chase 330-odd on the final day seeing how the pitch had played was an unbelievable effort," said Harrison.

"There was a bit of nervous energy in the changing room towards the end, but Michael Neser came in and took the pressure off Billy. He and Colin were magnificent in that run chase and Billy looked in full control and deserved a hundred but I'm sure he would have taken 99 not out this morning. 

"It's another step forward, we can't look too far ahead because we've got a tough game ahead against Notts in our next Championship match, but we're giving ourselves chances to win on the last day."
