WORCESTERSHIRE Rapids made it two wins from two in the Metro Bank One Day Cup on Friday with a four-wicket win over Glamorgan at New Road. 

The Rapids bowled, and fielded, brilliantly in Glamorgan's innings to reduce them to just 199 runs. Ben Kellaway did his best for the visitors on debut with a brilliant 82 off 74 but he eventually ran out of partners.

Brett D'Oliveira and Josh Baker once again did the damage with the ball, taking 3-37 and 2-41 respectively, before Azhar Ali and Rob Jones put on 100 runs to break the back of the Glamorgan total.

The visitors took some late wickets as the home side tumbled from 156-2 to 190-6 but Jake Libby's 24 not-out eventually saw them over the line to make it back-to-back wins at the start of the one-day campaign. 

Glamorgan had made a positive start to their innings with openers Tom Bevan and Edward Byrom reaching 36/0 but inside the next seven overs, the Rapids would take four wickets to swing the game in their favour. 

Bevan was caught by Azhar for 13 runs off the bowling of Ben Gibbon, who then, rather fortuitously, stumped Colin Ingram whilst the Glamorgan man was out of his crease.

Bryrom played a shot that deflected off a tumbling Gibbon and onto the stumps behind him, meaning the stranded Ingram had to walk. 

Dillon Pennington then joined the act as he bowled Byrom on 25 and had Billy Root (5) caught behind by Ben Cox. 

Kellaway then came to the crease on his debut for Glamorgan and, together with Kiran Carlson, put on 65 for the fifth wicket to force their way back into the match. 

But two wickets in the 27th over stunted the fightback as D'Oliveira picked up his first of the day when Carlson chipped one up to Azhar and good work from Libby and Cox meant Alex Horton was run-out.

D'Oliveira bowled Andre Golvin for 6 before Baker picked up the wickets of Harry Podmore and Jamie McIlroy and the innings was wrapped up when Kellaway was caught for 82. 

It was a total way short of what they would have wanted and Worcestershire were making light work of the chase, cruising to 136-1 as Azhar and Jones built a 100-run stand.

It should have been a more comprehensive victory for the hosts but some excellent catching from Glamorgan meant that Worcestershire slipped to 190-6 after the likes of Kashif Ali, Ben Cox and Matthew Waite gave up their wickets rather cheapily. 

But in the end it mattered not as captain Libby saw them over the line.
