Hogan the hero in big Glamorgan success

Highlights from day four at the SWALEC Stadium

Michael Hogan claimed a match haul of 10 wickets to help Glamorgan thump Kent by an innings and 11 runs for their second LV= County Championship Division Two win of the season.

The Australian seamer followed up his 5-58 in the first innings with 5-67 in the second to finish with match figures of 10-125.

Glamorgan wrapped up victory just before a delayed lunch interval as Kent were bowled out for 263.

In the end it was a comprehensive victory and will give Glamorgan much confidence for the rest of the championship season.

Glamorgan took a valuable haul of 24 points, to Kent's three, and maximum points helped the Welsh side move up the table from sixth to fourth.

Kent's demise was hastened as early as the 10th ball of the day when they lost Darren Stevens, who had offered some fine resistance on the third evening with a half-century.

Stevens, who cracked 60 from 57 balls, drove through the covers and was caught by Ben Wright to give Hogan his eighth wicket of the contest.

Just three overs later, Sam Billings edged a swinging Graham Wagg ball which was caught behind by Mark Wallace.

Mitch Claydon and Adam Ball offered some late order resistance, keeping Glamorgan's attack at bay for 13 overs.

But the introduction of Dean Cosker into the attack did the trick because with his second ball he had Claydon caught at slip for 17.

There was more resistance from Ball, who went to 50 from 79 balls, and Adam Riley until Ball chopped Hogan on to his stumps leaving Kent 241 for nine.

With nine wickets down the lunch interval was delayed and Hogan claimed his 10th wicket having Robbie Joseph caught at second slip.
