Surrey’s second near-25,000 sell-out throng in 3 days during a Kia Oval roared their capitulation as Tom Curran took a fantastic hat-trick in his opening new-ball over to set adult a thespian 97-run feat opposite Glamorgan, who subsequently crashed to 44 all out in 12.5 overs – their lowest sum in T20 cricket.
South Africa legspinner Imran Tahir afterwards finished a triple-wicket over himself, stealing Graham Wagg, Andrew Salter and Marchant de Lange in a space of 5 balls in an almost-as-remarkable 12th over, to send Glamorgan hurtling from 40 for 6 to 40 for 9.

Curran’s noted hat-trick came when he initial bowled David Lloyd for 4 with a beauty and then, with a fourth round of a second over of Glamorgan’s innings, had Colin Ingram hold by Rikki Clarke during trip as he attempted to force into a off side. Remarkably, new batsman Billy Root also edged to Clarke subsequent round in an roughly CO duplicate of Ingram’s exclusion – withdrawal Curran to scurry divided in jubilee towards a Peter May Stand, followed by his jubilant team-mates.
When Surrey captain Jade Dernbach afterwards had Owen Morgan hold during a wicket for 2, in his second over with a new ball, Glamorgan were a delicate 9 for 4. And it got worse for a Welsh county when, in a eighth over, Pakistan left-hander Fakhar Zaman lofted Batty to long-on after creation only 17 on his Glamorgan debut.
From 33 for 5, Glamorgan’s chances were slim, yet it was still intolerable when Chris Cooke afterwards holed out during 39 for 6 and they fell divided so fast opposite a spin of Tahir and Batty to what was a degrading defeat.
Offspinner Salter had progressing taken a career-best 4 for 23 as Surrey were bowled out for 141, with Glamorgan putting in a glorious opening in a margin with some glorious throwing and belligerent fielding.
Fast bowler de Lange also impressed, holding a final 3 Surrey wickets in 5 balls in a final over to finish with 4 for 26. De Lange bowled Dernbach for 2, private Batty subsequent round when a maestro former Surrey captain strike his possess wicket as he attempted to make room to cut and, from a final round of a innings, had Tahir hold during mid-off.
It was Salter’s four-wicket detonate in mid-innings, however, that derailed Surrey’s bid after Will Jacks and Aaron Finch had combined 61 in 6.4 overs for a second wicket after de Lange had discharged opener Mark Stoneman in a second over, hold for 5 during third male from a slashed block cut that he could not keep down.
From 73 for 1 they slumped to 99 for 6 after Jacks’ stimulating 26-ball 40, that featured dual sixes and 4 fours, had finished with a torment to screw Cooke from a leg-side round from Wagg that would have been a far-reaching had a batsman not overwhelmed it.
Salter afterwards struck with his initial delivery, during a start of a 10th over, to have Finch brilliantly hold on a leg-side range by Root for 28 from 20 balls. From a final round of that over, he forced Clarke to chip a tame lapse locate and, in his subsequent over, Curran also fell for 1 when he was well hold by a diving Lloyd during additional cover.
Ollie Pope went for 12, miscuing a retreat crack during Salter to brief third man, and Surrey’s seventh wicket span of Jordan Clark and Liam Plunkett attempted tough to put some arrange of sum on a house – traffic especially in ones and well-run twos in a mount of 38 in 5 overs.
Plunkett did, though, strike Salter’s final round for 6 over long-off in his 18, that finished in a 19th over when he lofted Wagg’s left-arm middle gait to long-on. Wagg took 2 for 28 and Clark finished dominant on 26, from 27 balls.
The compare had begun 40 mins late during 7.10pm, primarily since of a hazard of lightning in erotic temperatures, that remained in a low 30s centigrade notwithstanding an early dusk rave of cloud that then, 5 mins before play was creatively due to start during 6.55pm, constructed a brief yet torrential surge that sent many people in a ability throng – Surrey have captivated full houses for both this week’s T20 home games opposite Middlesex and Glamorgan – scurrying for cover.
Play was also hold adult for a few mins towards a latter partial of Surrey’s innings when a fox ran on to a outfield, and would not move. It also done a deposition on to a Oval turf, that itself had to be private with a trowel after a animal had been driven divided by stewards.
