Glos struggle on day One

DAY 1 Close: Glamorgan 380-7 v Gloucestershire (PTS: Glam 4, Glos 2)
LIVE ball-by-ball commentary on

Gloucestershire suffered a major setback in their promotion chances as Glamorgan enjoyed an excellent first day at Cardiff.

Sporadic fightbacks saw Glos slightly balance out the day, but the rapid progress Glamorgan have made has put them into a very advantageous position.

After being inserted, following a good first half-hour, the bowling became wayward & both spinning options were attacked well & the runs flowed in a wicketless morning session.

It was the soft dismissal of Mark Cosgrove that sparked a Glos revival. The spinners then found rhythm & a wicket each threatened to change the day, before a luckless period of play drew Glamorgan into the ascendancy.

Edges past the slips, sweeps over the 'keeper, chinese cuts & balls falling wide or short of fieldsmen were aplenty in the fifth wicket partnership of 112.

But back came Glos with the new ball and three wickets after tea has given them hope of containing the Glamorgan total tomorrow morning.

    I reckon that at seven down overnight we've got a chance here - some early wickets and, on a good pitch, we could be right back in this's hoping!
