A COMBINATION of rain and stubborn Hampshire batting forced Glamorgan to settle for a draw in their LV= County Championship Division Two encounter in Southampton.
The Welsh county were hopeful of claiming only their second four-day win of the season when they declared on 478-9 on day three, giving them a first-innings lead of 129.
But with Hampshire resuming today’s fourth day on 115-2, a draw always seemed the likeliest outcome and so it proved as the heavens opened at the Ageas Bowl with the hosts on 237-4.
Hampshire lost their first wicket of the day when Liam Dawson was run out by Michael Hogan for 42.

Chris Wood and Neil McKenzie then added 95 for the fourth wicket, before the former was dismissed for 69, caught by Hogan from the bowling of Graham Wagg.
At that point, with Hampshire 237-4, the rain began to fall and the decision was taken to abandon the match as a draw.
The visitors ended the game with 11 points, compared to Hampshire’s eight.
Glamorgan are now without a victory in the County Championship since April.
