Glos gain ground on day three

DAY 3 Close: Glamorgan 410 & 169-8 lead Gloucestershire 286 by 293 runs (PTS: Glam 8, Glos 5)
LIVE ball-by-ball commentary on

Gloucestershire came back into this county championship match at Cardiff with a spirited day three, but still face a tough ask to take a positive result.

A great effort in the field has presented a platform for the batsmen to go and win the game and propel Glos back into the promotion mix. It was a much more determined effort with the ball and greater consistency, together with a poor Glamorgan attitude to their second-innings, saw Glos run through the second-innings batting to reclaim some initiative.

Three wickets each for Steve Kirby and Jon Lewis - the latter who bowled to a precise plan of attack outside off-stump - has brought Glos back into contention and while a disciplined and measured batting effort will be required to win the game, the like not considered capable of by the current Glos line-up, the Shire do have a chance to win and they will need to grasp it to bring themselves back into the promotion shake-up.

    Some positives:
    1. We've still got a chance of winning this game.
    2. Other results today went about as well as we could have hoped.

    IF we win, we go 1pt behind Essex (who face a tough game v Derby in their final game while we host Kent.) This needs a masssive performance tomorrow to capitalise on this chance ...C'mon The Shire!
