Leicestershire 420 all out Glamorgan 165-2
Captain Jacques Rudolph and fellow opener Nick Selman hit contrasting half-centuries as Glamorgan made a strong start to their reply to Leicestershire's first innings score of 420.
Rudolph, who survived a concerted appeal for a catch behind off his second ball, stroked 12 boundaries in racing to his 50 at a run a ball, and had hit 58 of a stand of 83 for the first wicket when occasional off-spinner Harry Dearden bowled the left-hander with a delivery that turned past his outside edge.
Selman was far less fluent and was also hit on the body on several occasions, but the Australian fought his way to his own 50 off 80 balls. He lost a second partner when David Lloyd went leg before to a Ben Raine delivery that seamed back in to the right-hander, but Selman remained unbeaten at the interval.
Earlier Leicestershire's tail threw the bat to impressive effect after the visitors picked up three quick wickets on the second morning of this county championship match at the Fischer County Ground.
Resuming on 275-5, Leicestershire had added only six runs to their total when they lost overnight batsmen Lewis Hill and Mark Pettini, caught by Aneurin Donald at fourth slip off the bowling of Lukas Carey and Marchant De Lange respectively.
When Carey then found the edge of Zak Chappell's bat, the catch again neatly taken by Donald in the slip cordon, it looked as though Leicestershire would fall well short of 350, but Foxes all-rounder Ben Raine took the attack back to the bowlers, hitting nine boundaries in racing to 45 before top-edging an attempted pull at De Lange to Chris Cooke behind the stumps. Raine was fortunate on 17, when he edged Carey straight to Nick Selman at second slip, only for the chance to go down.
Charlie Shreck rarely detains opposing bowlers for too long, but the Leicestershire number 11 rode his luck and swiped four boundaries in an entertaining partnership of 61 in just eight overs with Clint McKay, who was 41 not out when Shreck was finally bowled by Colin Ingram.
