187/4
262 surely in sight if not tonight.
Ingram and Lloyd huge show of chanceless crease occupation.
Doing exactly what is needed. If they stay there they will reap the rewards as the bowlers tire and bowl a few loose deliveries. The good leave is an under rated shot.

Day 3 close
Glamorgan 187 and 212/5 trail
Nottinghamshire 448 by 49 runs

So the game goes into the final day and well done for doing so. It looked like anything but when Selman shouldered arms for 3 however it looks easy from afar. The batsnen stuck to the task to occupy the crease, led by Ingram unbeaten on 72.

Others got in and got out but more importantly stuck arund. Lloyd showed great obdurate temperament throughout. Notts sensed an earlier finish when Donald departed to Patel but it wasn't to be...not yet anyway. Broad's run up getting longer after bringing on Mullaney for a bowl. Not often do we see such a Test quality bowler let alone go wicket less....his figures could easily change tomorrow of course.

Good effort today...with another warm day promised tomorrow be great to get a lead then build. We too can bat deep when required.

There appears to be some rejoicing that we've managed to get to the final day of a Championship game !

Credit to Ingram for showing grit and determination in curbing his natural attacking instincts. Credit to Lloyd also for some dogged support.

Suggest Donald should be publicly flogged by the coach on the players balcony - totally irresponsible yet again.

Those of you who will defend the manner of his dismissals will repeat calls for a batting coach. Well, you learn how to craft an innings out in the middle. He had Ingram to learn from and completely lost his head again. Perhaps a lobotomy would benefit the boy and batting coaches cannot deliver those ! :brickwall:

Ingram is class - read his comments of knuckling down and not playing a one-day type innings. Uses his head which is very important and something young Norman could do. Has great potential but must play to the situation. Very pleased for Lloyd who has shown that he is capable of dogged determination when not expected to open the batting as in 50 overs. How far away is the return of Wagg?

Ingram at 30 should know his own game,and have the experience to adapt.Donald at 20 not so much,and therefore we should be patient. He has the talent,hopefully he will learn from Ingram

Keep going boys lets make them bat at least. Great from Ingram, playing a captains style innings (shame our actual captain can't muster one).

The first innings was a joke (not a funny one!). We can bat when we knuckle down. They showed how it is done, they started with a strike rate of under 20 in the first 20 overs but then once in they speeded up. It's pretty standard CC stuff really. Is it moral, coaching or individual errors, I'm not sure but it doesn't seem like a happy camp.

Great effort today from Cooke and Ingram, not forgeting the key role played by Lloyd yesterday. Hopefully this will be a big learning moment for the batsmen showing how to wear down an opposition attack and then make hay as they tire. Big first innings scores win matches giving the bowlers something to work with.

Looking at the 2's game today against Sussex, Glamorgan scored 298/7 in 50 overs with 100 from Brand and 90 from Lawlor. Slight concern with Meschede as he seems to have retired after scoring just 25, although just says "retired not out" rather than hurt. He has not bowled in the Sussex innings leaving the Glamorgan team heavily dependent on spin.
