Match scorecard

Glamorgan eased to a comfortable 58-run FL t20 victory as Worcestershire lost heavily on their own turf at New Road.

Chris Cooke smacked 57 off 27 balls as Glamorgan made light of a rain break to run up 159-4 from their 14 overs.

Worcestershire started well, hitting 30 in three overs, but were destroyed by a burst of three wickets in four balls from Warwickshire old boy Graham Wagg.

Wagg ended up with 5-14 as the hosts, chasing a revised target of 161, were limited to 102-9.

That eclipsed Ryan Watkins's 5-16 against Gloucestershire at Sophia Gardens four years ago as the best figures by a Glamorgan bowler in 11 seasons of Twenty20 cricket.

After collapsing from 36-0 to 54-7, Ben Cox came in at the end to hit a brisk 27 off 22 balls.

But it was far too little, too late for Worcestershire, who now face a quick chance to bounce back when they take on Gloucestershire at Bristol on Sunday.
