Maximum batting points for Glos

DAY 2 Close: Gloucestershire 400-9 dec. v Glamorgan 35-0 (PTS: Glos 5 Glam 3)
LIVE ball-by-ball commentary on

Gloucestershire claimed maximum batting points for only the second time this season on a rain-affected day at Bristol.

The first two sessions were washed out leaving only 30 overs possible, but the Shire passed 400 and then declared, but couldn't claim a breakthrough as Glamorgan closed 35-0.

Glos were in danger of collapse as James Franklin, Alex Gidman and Steve Adshead departed in an all too unfamiliar brisk fashion, but Ian Saxelby, on his return, made 33 to steer the home side to five very welcome batting points.

The bowlers then found some swing under laden skies, but the visiting openers dug in and survived a very tricky 11 overs.

    I was worried we were going to choke again when those early wickets went down so all credit to the bowlers (once again) for pushing us over the line! Some early wickets would be nice now!...

    Two things:
    1. Didn't we just install a new drainage system for the outfield? - it just didn't seem to drain all that much quicker to me...

    2. Where have our keepers that can bat gone? It wasn't that long ago we had the poll on here with the option of playing both of them in the side to utilise their batting skills!
