VIEW FROM THE COMMENTARY BOX

BBC Radio Wales' Edward Bevan: "Only 17.1 overs were bowled, but Glamorgan's bowlers soon made up for their indifferent batting the previous day.

"Jim Allenby was the pick of the Glamorgan attack, trapping Rob Newton and inducing skipper Stephen Peters to edge a ball to second slip.

"With only 90.5 overs completed in the first two days and unsettled weather forecast for the remaining couple of days, a draw appears the likely outcome."
