Recent Match Report – Leics vs Glamorgan 39th Match 2022


Lunch Glamorgan 795 for 5 dec (Northeast 410*, Cooke 191*) lead Leicestershire 584 (Mulder 156, Mike 91, Salter 4-158) by 211 runs

Sam Northeast, the 32-year-old Glamorgan batter, long regarded as the best uncapped player in England, joined exalted company after extending his overnight 308 against Leicestershire at the UptonSteel County Ground in Leicester to 410 not out by the time Glamorgan called off the punishment at lunch on the final day.

He passed 400 in the final over of the morning with two successive straight sixes against Ronan Walker – two of only three that he struck in an innings that also included 45 fours and spanned 450 deliveries.

Leicestershire, bereft of ideas with the ball and regularly misfielding on a bumpy outfield, were downcast long before the end.

When Glamorgan declared on 795 for 5, having made 232 runs in a session, they possessed the ninth-highest total ever assembled in Championship cricket in England.

There was a partnership record, too, with Northeast and Chris Cooke sharing an unbroken sixth-wicket stand of 461 in 71.3 overs – the highest ever recorded in English first-class record and the second-highest in history.
