Worcestershire suffered two defeats against Glamorgan, in their 2nd XI t20 matches at Kidderminster, by 9 runs and 4 wickets respectively.
In the first match Worcestershire won the toss and chose to field and the visitors scored 174-5 off their 20 overs thanks to David Lloyd (81) and Mike O'Shea (73), who put on 153 for the second wicket, with Chris Russell (2-11 off 3 overs), Nick Harrison (2-32 off 4 overs) and Aneesh Kapil (1-36 off 3 overs) taking the wickets for the home side.
In reply Worcestershire lost Kapil (6) and Jack Manuel (4), with the score on 20 in the 3rd over, but Alexei Kervezee played with aggression as he got to 55 before he was out off 29 balls, with 8 fours and 2 sixes, to leave Worcestershire on 84-3 in the 9th over. Neil Pinner (19) and Brett D'Oliveira (1) were the next two wickets to fall, with the score on 97-5 in the 12th over, and despite the best efforts of Joe Leach (42*) and Shaaiq Choudhry (29) Worcestershire fell 9 runs short as they ended on 165-6.
In the second match Worcestershire decided to bat first and got a good start as Kapil and Manuel took the score to 57 in the 9th over until Manuel was out for 31. Kervezee (16) and Kapil (34) were the next two victims, with the score on 98-3 in the 15th over, before Pinner pushed the innings on in the final 5 overs as his unbeaten 43 off 26 balls, with 3 fours and 1 six, took Worcestershire to 150-6 off their 20 overs.
Glamorgan's reply started well with an opening wicket partnership of 71 between Lloyd (38) and Nick James (42) but then they were both dismissed and along with the wicket of O'Shea (0) Worcestershire had pegged the visitors back to 82-3 after 10 overs. The score then became 99-5 in the 15th over as D'Oliveira (2-24 off 4 overs) and Choudhry (1-20 off 4 overs) kept it tight and after 17 overs Glamorgan needed 31 runs to win but then Russell (1-39 off 3.4 overs) conceded 16 runs in the 18th over, which proved to be crucial, and despite losing Andrew Salter (24) in the last over they won with 2 balls to spare, as they ended on 152-6, with Chris Cooke unbeaten on 39.
