Scoring card

Martin Andersson had a birthday to remember when Derbyshire completed an emphatic 169-race victory over Glamorgan in the Division Two game at Derby.

The loyal Middlesex allrounder marked his 22nd birthday by taking 4 for 25 with only wicketkeeper Chris Cooke offering extended resistance with 67, as Glamorgan was sent off by 132 to lose for the eighth time in nine games.

It was also a memorable game for 35-year-old Tony Palladino who claimed the first two terrains of the day and the last to take 4 for 52 and finish with 10 in a game for the first time in his career.

Glamorgan's chances of reaching the goal of 302 were slim before the start of the game, but they disappeared in the first five over the morning.

Once again it was Palladino who did the damage as Tom Cullen played a ladder in the seventh inning before Kiran Carlson was unlucky enough to get a ball that seemed to be going down.

But David Lloyd could not have any complaints when he pulled a short ball from Lockie Ferguson into the hands of Palladino in the long leg in the tenth place to leave Glamorgan in ruins in 33 for 4.

Now it was a question of if the game would end with lunch and the chances of Derbyshire finishing the victory in the first session increased when Connor Brown pointed to Andersson and got caught.

Chris Cook gave some challenging shots, but the return of Graham Wagg to one of his former counties ended in the ignominy of a pair when he pushed a wide ball from Andersson and was caught in the first slip by Wayne Madsen on the third attempt .

The slide to a crushing defeat continued as Ruaidhri Smith shook his bat annoyingly after cutting a wide and short ball to slide before Timm van n der Gugten pulled violently from his second ball and gave Andersson a gentle return.

Lunch was delayed 15 minutes, but Kieran Bull and Cooke survived and there was more frustration for Derbyshire when the rain started and prevented a new start. until 5.05 p.m.

Cooke and Bull dug for 10 more overs with Cooke pulling Ferguson for his second six before the fast bowler started his off-stump and Palladino had the last word when Michael Hogan skied to midwicket.
