Grace Road: Leicestershire’s rain-affected clash against Glamorgan finished in a draw

Glamorgan’s hopes of victory over Leicestershire in their LV= County Championship Division Two game were wrecked by the weather, with only 55 minutes of play possible on the final day at Grace Road.

Leicestershire, following on 300 runs behind, added another 49 for the loss of one wicket in 12.4 overs, reaching 182-2 by the time the game was abandoned as a draw with 28 overs remaining.

Glamorgan collect 10 points from the match and Leicestershire five.

Rain and strong winds throughout the morning meant the sides had to wait until 3.30pm before a start could be made, with Leicestershire on 133-1 and still 167 runs adrift.

It took some sterling work from the groundstaff to make any play possible at all and when the game did start, it was so cold that 10 of the Glamorgan side wore woolly hats. Only Murray Goodwin had the traditional cricket cap on.

Graham Wagg even kept his “beanie” on to bowl, but it was Michael Hogan who claimed the one wicket to fall. The Australian seamer had Greg Smith, 62 not out overnight, lbw for 70 to end a second-wicket stand of 58.

Australian Joe Burns hit three fours in his score of 18 while Ned Eckersley added 20 runs to his overnight 23, before heavy rain again swept in and the match was abandoned.
