Essex Had the Great Start of the Innings
Walter Shined out for Essex to Post a Big Total
The pace of the Essex innings hardly ever fell below 10 an over as Walter and Pepper, the next men in, continued to attack. When Pepper was trapped lbw by Hatzoglou, he had made 42 from just 19 balls. The standout of the game was Walter, who scored the most runs for Essex with 78 from 34 balls and six sixes. He was out after driving a Hatzoglou ball to long-off, where Ingram took a straightforward catch.
Glamorgan had a strong start in their pursuit but lost steam as they tried to match the pace. Since Peter Hatzoglou was unable to bat, Glamorgan was bowled out for 175 runs, with Colin Ingram scoring the team’s highest total of 48.
