0 Glamorgan-Hants abandoned after pitch concerns

glamorgan ccc sept 2011 108Glamorgan's One-Day Cup match against Hampshire was abandoned following consultation about a "dangerous pitch" at Cardiff's Swalec Stadium

After the hosts posted 182-9 from their 50 overs, the umpires called off the match when Hampshire batsman Jimmy Adams was hit by a rising delivery.

Following the decision to abandon play, the match becomes a no result meaning both teams will take one point each.

"The one that hit me was pretty extreme," Adams said.

"One ball had slightly gone up and hit Michael Carberry earlier and there were a couple in the Glamorgan innings."

"Fortunately there's no damage done. If it goes again and it's doing it off that sort of length then it does fall into the officials' hands," Adams later told BBC Radio Solent.

England and Wales Cricket Board pitch assessor Tony Pigott said that the pitch had an unpredictable bounce and that it was turning in the first innings.

"Ultimately, it's the umpires' decision but I will have to interview everyone now and ascertain what's happened," Pigott added.
