ANOTHER afternoon filled with poor weather meant that just 26.5 overs were bowled on day two of the LV=Insurance County Championship match between Glamorgan and Durham in Cardiff.

The morning session saw Glamorgan bowled out for 234 as six wickets fell for 41 runs with the dismissals shared around by the Durham seamers.

There was time for one over of the Durham first innings before the lunch break but that was where the play finished for the day, with the visitors on 5 without loss, 229 runs behind on first innings.

Chris Cooke and Colin Ingram were looking well set in the opening exchanges. Both batters started off with real attacking intent with Ingram particularly good when driving down the ground.

It came as something of a surprise when Ingram edged one to first slip on 87 but it was the start of a Glamorgan collapse that saw them go from 188 for four to 229 all out.

Callum Taylor managed to get two balls away to the boundary for four on his way to 11 before he was trapped lbw by Matty Potts.

Two balls later, Potts repeated the trick to dismiss James Weighell with a fantastic yorker that trapped him plumb in front to leave Glamorgan 214 for seven.

Cooke played well despite wickets falling around him, making 59 from 120 balls. He was the ninth wicket to fall when he upper cut the ball down to third man off the bowling of Paul Coughlan with Liam Trevaskis taking a very good catch diving forward with the ball just inches off the ground.

The Durham openers saw out the one over before the lunch break but during the interval there was a return of the heavy hail and rain storms that ruined the second half of day one.

With the groundstaff using the bucket of a tractor to scoop ice off the field before even more rain fell, there was no chance of further play.

Potts said: "It is very bizarre conditions, obviously we hate losing time in the game. I think we are in a very strong position.

"We capitalised on an early wicket of Colin Ingram who batted beautifully yesterday. So that was the key part, and when we had a smell of blood we just tried to go through the door.

"It was all completed pretty quickly. We just stuck to the process and didn’t get distracted by the fact that the wickets were falling.

"I think that was key in the way that it went as a bowling unit.

"There has been a big boundary count with one short side and a quick outfield that races across the square. But I think as a bowling unit we came back brilliantly this morning."
