Hampshire 316 & 273 v Glamorgan 327 & 53/2 (15.0 ov) - Glamorgan require another 210 runs with 8 wickets remaining
In the ongoing County Championship Division Two tournament, Glamorgan require 210 runs to win the match against Hampshire after cobbering 53 runs for the loss of two wickets at stumps on the third day of the four-day match played at The Rose Bowl, Southampton, on Friday, May 25.
Hampshire resumed their second innings from a tally of 25 with LA Dawson on 19 runs and JHK Adams on a score of six.
However, before the batsmen could mount a staggering partnership, Dawson faltered after clobbering an innings of 23 runs, becoming the first wicket to fall from his side in the second innings.
Adams was then joined by MA Carberry as the two batsmen steadfast, aiming to stay on the wicket for as long as possible to clobber a befitting total on the board, in order to leave their opponents in ruins.
With a first innings total of 316, Hampshire needed a big total as Glamorgan had made their first innings effort look meagre by responding with a first innings total of 327 runs.
The two Hampshire batsmen engaged a daunting collaboration as they took the score to 102 after which Glamorgan saw the back of Carberry who fell on 25 runs.
SM Katich was the third casualty of the day, who lost his wicket cheaply on scoring an innings of 12 runs, with his team on a total of 124.
Adams then took a bow after belting a brave knock of 72 runs, leaving his side standing on a tally of 141 runs.
While the remainder of the batting line-up expressed form and colour, JM Vince stood apart with his refreshing innings of 48 runs that played a key role in helping his team pile 273 runs at the end of their second innings.
Needing a decent total to win, Glamorgan suffered a terrible start to their innings on losing their first wicket with only a run on the board, followed by their second wicket with 18 runs on the scoreboard.
The side now has GP Rees standing on 17 and MJ North on 22 with the the final day of play remaining to chase down the target.
