Day 2 close
Glamorgan 225/6
Durham 342

Reward for the crowd who waited in the cooling mizzle was a 2.30 start. White ball batting start with plenty of early runs but both openers out. Outfield slowed up a bit with the rain but 50 up in the 8th over.

Ingram departed for 18 at 78/3. Bragg out for 22. 92/4 to 119/5 when Lloyd went for 16. Donald 51 unlucky to be caught by Jennings at 161/6. Highlights quick start, Donald 50, 193, 200 and Cooke 50 sticking around to haymake with Salter. Hopefully a few more tomorrow en route towards 300.

Weighell looked the most impressive bowler. Big day all round tomorrow.

Cooke is thankfully starting to show his quality now and is probably too good to be batting at number 7. Sadly the averages for our other batsmen in the Championship this season speak for themselves:

Rudolph - 22
Selman - 22
Bragg - 19
Ingram - 52
Donald - 40
Lloyd - 21

Need a bowling rather than a batting all-rounder coming in at 7.

Great effort from Salter but he needs to be taking wickets more than scoring runs. Great for bowlers to get runs but it isn't their main job.The batsmen should be the ones scoring the runs - unfortunately some of ours don't score enough.

Day 3 close
Glamorgan 353 trail
Durham 342 & 158/3 by 147 runs

From 225/6 to 353. Cooke looked set before caught and bowled by Coughlin. 250 up at drinks before Dai bowled for a good 30. Skipper last man in...smashed first 2 balls for 4 off Harding and a 6 for the third batting point.

Salter 75 absolutely superb aided and abetted by Hogan 29*...fireworks in the sunshine. Rushworth bowled well from the sea end with the haymaking spoiling his figures. Great entertainment.

Dai got Cook early...then Timm had Steel. 35/2. Jennings made a serene 35 before Lloyd had him lbw first ball. 75/3. Collingwood again arrived to a warm welcome. 105/3 at tea. Quiet evening session with Clark 63 and Collingwood 40 putting an unbeaten 83 on for the 4th wicket. Bowling endeavour going without reward. Bragg in the outfield who went through the wars to keep the score down.

Lovely day at St Helens until the rain and bad light..good crowd in too. Durham 147 ahead....maximum effort to turn this tight one our way.

A creditable morning from the bowlers and Salter managed to get a couple of wickets at long last.

Collingwood still the obvious star though and a draw looks very much favourite (unless Glamorgan collapse or Rudolph tries to score at 12 an over again!).
