This evening sees the last set of group matches in this summer’s Natwest T20 Blast. Weather permitting, I’ll be at the SSE Swalec Stadium at 7pm to Glamorgan play Middlesex. 544 more words
So last night Glamorgan won a Natwest T20 Blast match against Gloucestershire by 25 runs having batted first and scored 176 off their 20 overs. Glamorgan are now top of the `South Division', despite having three games rained off. They play second-placed Surrey on Friday. Weather permitting. Anyhow, last night when I saw the result I got to wondering what the par score is for a first innings in Twenty20 (i.e. median score for a winning side batting first). Would you have expected them to win with a score of 176? The answer - and the answers to many other questions - can be found in this interesting post. P.S. If you can't be bothered to read the post, the median winning score for men's T20 matches is about 164 so Glamorgan had a better-than-even chance of winning after their first innings.
