Leicestershire v Glamorgan
Glamorgan won by 10 bloody wickets, because the opening pair carried the bat through the innings.
Mark Cosgrove scored 113 off 111 balls and his partner Gareth Rees added 73 off 93.
When was the last time that Australia saw a countryman open and close a first class innings, to lead his team to victory? In the recent Shield it happened not, except for Daniel Harris, but SA couldn't win the match. Phil Jaques did it in the Nobodygivesadamn Cup, so the last memorable occurrence would have been Shane Watson's fireworks against England and New Zealand during last year's Champions Trophy? My brain is old, and the Australian summer is completely off my radar, so please correct me if I'm wrong.
Shane Watson opens for Australia in all formats, for who does Mark Cosgrove open?
But I know a country that puts performance before origin and looks (at least I assume that Kay Pee didn't just bribe the responsibles). So I've made this little video tribute to Cossy in the hope to convince the English selectors that Cos is worth approaching. Lumb isn't the answer to all questions! ;) Enjoy!
