Match scorecard

Leicestershire and Glamorgan were forced to settle for a draw after a rain-affected final day at Grace Road.

After a delayed start, the hosts resumed on 133-1, still 167 behind the visitors' first innings' 442-9.

Greg Smith added just eight to his overnight score to make 70 before Michael Hogan trapped him lbw.

Leicestershire reached 182-2 before rain closed in again to bring a premature end to the match with only 12.4 overs bowled in the day.


BBC Wales' Edward Bevan:

"The weather again played havoc with Glamorgan's hopes of winning their second Championship match this season.

"Play did resume at 3.30 and, although Michael Hogan quickly removed Greg Smith, the rain returned and the game was abandoned.

"Glamorgan will feel disappointed, especially after completely dominating the first two days.

"They now have a nine-day break before they play their next game, against Somerset in the YB40."
