Essex's Graham Napier celebrates taking another Glamorgan wicket

Glamorgan and Essex had to share the points as rain ruined their Clydesdale Bank 40 clash at the Swalec Stadium.

Glamorgan captain Alviro Petersen top-scored with 88 as his side made 222 for seven after being sent in to bat.

But the headlines belonged to Graham Napier as the Essex bowler celebrated a hat-trick, claiming Gareth Rees, James Allenby and Stewart Walters.

Rain arrived in the interval, leaving umpires Peter Willey and Jeff Evans with no choice but to abandon play.
