Early Season Cricket

It’s Day 3 of Yorkshire versus Glamorgan at Headingley in the first round of this season’s County Championship matches.

Or it was because there won’t be any further play today owing to the inclement weather….

Glamorgan are actually doing well at 161 for 4 in their second innings after bowling out Yorkshire for 193 to establish a first innings lead of 137. That’s very good considering that they were 29 for 4 at one point. Currently 298 ahead with six wickets remaining, can they force a result tomorrow?

UPDATE: Glamorgan batted on for an hour on Sunday morning so both Clarke and Root could get hundreds, eventually declaring on 241-4 a leady of 378. Clarke and Root came together with the score on 29-4 so that was an unbroken partnership of 212 for the 5th wicket. Despite a wobble here and there, Yorkshire batted out the day and eventually a draw was agreed with their score on 223 for 4.

    Hopefully they could win, if the weather is okay tomorrow for a full or nearly-full days play. I imagine they will bat on for 50 more runs at most and then declare. Last week Glamorgan had a pretty good win over the might Somerset in a 3-day friendly. While it was 12-a-side, with retirements and 3 declarations, Glamorgan chased the biggest innings of the match, 271, without too many problems, and held their own. We’ll see what tomorrow brings, if they can bowl a side out under pressure.

      Yes I think I would bat for an hour or so, try to get the lead past 350 then have a bowl.

      Which is what happened, the hour allowing both Root and Clarke to get their centuries in an unbroken partnership of 212 for the 5th wicket.
