Live cricket: Hampshire v Glamorgan – LV County Championship

Glamorgan are in Hampshire playing in a four-day county championship match between August 2 and August 5.

After their T20 disappointment, Matthew Mott’s men are looking to climb the County Championship table with a win in Southampton.

Currently lying eighth in Division Two, Glamorgan will be looking for a result against a team two places and 20 points ahead of them.

Day 1 from The Ageas Bowl

Hampshire 261-6 (M A Carberry 94, J M Vince 51 no, M G Hogan 4-66) v Glamorgan

Australian pace bowler Michael Hogan took two late wickets to enable Glamorgan to finish on equal terms with Hampshire at the end of the first day at the Ageas Bowl.

Hampshire, recovering from a poor start after being put in, finished on 261 for six from 85.1 overs when bad light brought a premature end to proceedings.

Hogan dismissed Sean Ervine and nightwatchman Danny Briggs after Hampshire had threatened a recovery.

Former Western Australian Hogan finished the day with creditable figures of four for 66 and his victims also included the day’s top scorer, the in-form Michael Carberry.

After the first hour had been lost to rain, Glamorgan captain Mark Wallace gambled on fielding first and with the wicket as troublesome early on as it often is, Hampshire were reduced to four for two.

The lively Hogan broke through at the end of the third over when Hampshire captain Jimmy Adams, struggling for runs lately, edged to Wallace behind the stumps for a single.

Next man Liam Dawson made the same before being trapped by John Glover in the sixth but Glamorgan’s successes then became much rarer as the wicket eased.

England candidate Carberry, particularly powerful in the Twenty20 competition but with a Championship century in his last match against Kent, fell six short of another.

This was after he and Neil McKenzie had taken the game away from Glamorgan a little in a stand of 130 for the third wicket in 45 overs, each batsman taking advantage of Hogan’s rest periods by punishing those that followed him.

Left-arm spinner Dean Cosker removed McKenzie to a catch at the wicket at 134 before Hogan returned to the attack to have Carberry edging behind in sight of his 29th first-class century.

Carberry hit 16 fours and always looked in control after a circumspect start but his departure only heralded another major partnership.

James Vince and Ervine added another 90 in 20 overs for the fifth wicket, taking the score to 246.

Ervine, as belligerent as ever, hit Hogan for three fours in an over but at the start of the next, Hogan got his revenge thanks to a slip catch by Marcus North.

Briggs followed at 260 to Wallace’s fourth catch of the day but Vince was in imperious form, reaching his half-century just before the close, ending 51 not out from 98 balls.
