ANOTHER top innings from Andy Umeed couldn’t prevent Somerset from defeat at the hands of Glamorgan in a dramatic Metro Bank One Day Cup clash.

The Somerset opener continued his fine form in the competition with another beautifully executed hundred and also claimed his first List A wickets but he was upstaged by former Somerset batter Eddie Byrom, whose maiden List A century helped the visitors to a two-wicket victory.

The home side posted 298 for seven after Somerset skipper, Sean Dickson won the toss and elected to bat first.

Umeed scoring 116 off 136 balls, with nine fours and three sixes whilst Ben Kellaway was the pick of the Glamorgan attack with three for 49.

In reply, the visitors made 301 for eight from 47.1 overs, Byrom striking 108 from 103 deliveries on the ground where he launched his county career.

Kiran Carlson contributed 75 to a third-wicket stand of 142, while Billy Root hit 74 not out.

Byrom continued on his merry way and was on 80 when a shower interrupted play at 185 for three, with Glamorgan needing less than five an over.

The rain soon passed and an edge to third man for his 16th four took Byrom to his first List A hundred off 94 balls as Glamorgan closed in rapidly on their target, Root contributing a valuable 44-ball half-century.

Byrom was finally bowled by leg-spinner Umeed, his first List A wicket. Kellaway, Alex Horton, ul Hassan and van der Gugten fell cheaply in the closing stages as Umeed finished with three for 31, but Root stayed calm to see Glamorgan home.
