Northants 137-2 v Glamorgan 207
After 16 overs were lost to rain, play began at 12.00pm with lunch scheduled for 1.00 and tea at 3.40. Northants resumed on 59 for 2, and Richard Levi was soon into his stride, clipping Michael Hogan to the mid- wicket boundary, before driving Lukas Carey through mid -off for another four.
Levi was the dominant partner in the third wicket stand, and after he was dropped from a difficult chance at square leg from Carey’s bowling, he then pulled the same bowler for six, before top edging him to the third man boundary.
The runs continued to flow from Levi, who struck Carey for consecutive boundaries as Northants made up for lost time by scoring at over four runs an over. Rob Newton then reached his fifty from ninety five balls, and at lunch Northants were well placed on 137 for 2- only 70 runs adrift- with Newton undefeated on 60 and Levi 47.
