JAMES Franklin feels two days of cricket is enough for a result at Emirates Riverside after only an hour’s play on Tuesday.

Glamorgan need to win to have a chance of promotion, but only 15 overs of play were possible on day two due to heavy rain, as Durham were able to record two batting bonus points, while BJ Watling notched his 17th first-class century to frustrate the Glamorgan attack.

Franklin said: "We were very keen to get out there and obviously Glamorgan were as well. The forecast was never looking great for today so we've found ourselves with the day being called off.

“The hour we did have has made the game move forward a little bit so there's still two days left, which is ample time here at the Emirates Riverside to get a result. Naturally the way BJ played his innings - it has been one of the more controlled innings we've seen this season.

“He had good partnerships with Ben Raine and Brydon Carse, who both looked score runs quickly. BJ has been brilliant and to find himself 104 not out in his second county game was a great achievement for him."

Marchant de Lange took the two wickets to fall on day two, but Durham were able to grind out a strong platform for the rest of the game.

Glamorgan need to win contest and hope Gloucestershire are unable to claim enough points against Northamptonshire to earn the final promotion spot to Division One.

The hosts resumed on 197-6 with Watling and Ben Raine at the crease. However, it took only three deliveries for Glamorgan to make the breakthrough. Raine got caught in two minds whether to leave a De Lange delivery and played on to his own stumps to fall for 26.

Leg byes brought up the 200 for the home side and the first batting point of the game before Brydon Carse upped the run rate as he pierced the off-side with regularity to find the fence. He was looking comfortable at the crease, scoring a brisk 27, but then fended a rising ball from De Lange through to Chris Cooke behind the stumps.

Watling worked his way through the nineties and took his opportunity on 99 to send a quick single into the leg-side, notching his first hundred for Durham from 201 deliveries.
