Mason Crane celebrated his maiden England Test call-up by spinning Hampshire to a victory over South Group table toppers Glamorgan in the NatWest T20 Blast.

The 20-year-old bowled Nick Selman (17) with a googly before having Chris Cooke (5) and Jacques Rudolph (20) stumped from successive deliveries as the visitors stumbled to 118-9, Andrew Salter (37no off 27) adding the only real impetus late on for the Welsh county.

Liam Dawson (2-15), the man Crane replaced in the England party, gave a reminder of his talents, too, ousting Aneurin Donald (0) and danger-man Colin Ingram (13) in his first two overs.

Hampshire skipper James Vince (60no off 41) then hammered a 32-ball half-century – his 21st in T20 cricket – as the hosts coasted home with 6.1 overs to spare, for the loss of only Calvin Dickinson (3) and Tom Alsop (28).

Hampshire’s win takes them up to second, a point behind Glamorgan, with two group games to go – Vince’s side visiting Kent on August 11 and hosting Somerset on August 18.
