Glamorgan 150-9, Neser 17* Hogan 0* trail by 23 runs
What an incredible day with 19 wickets falling!

Lancashire just about shading it, and that was an excellent fightback after Glamorgan had got to 74-1.

Two lare wickets helped;  Weighell caught down the leg side by Vilas off Wood and Andrew Salter lbw to Saqib Mahmood.

That was a late finish – thanks for following. The match report will follow shortly.

6.45pm, 35.0 overs (4.0 overs remain)
Glamorgan 133-7, Neser 8* Weighell 5* trail by 40 runs
What a turnaround - another wicket goes.

Dan Douthwaite pulls Saqib Mahmood high but straight to the waiting Luke Wood at deep square leg.

6.15pm, 28.0 overs (11.0 overs remain)
Glamorgan 102-6, Douthwaite 1* Neser 0* trail by 71 runs
Lancashire are bowling themselves back in to this game!

Tom Bailey has a third wicket, Kiran Carlson lbw for 12 and Josh Bohannon has pulled off a great catch, low down at backward point, to dismiss Glamorgan skipper Chris Cooke for a duck off the bowling of Danny Lamb.

Then Lamb strikes with the big wicket of Marnus Labuschagne, lbw for 44. 

That means five wickets have fallen for 28 runs as this game as taken a dramatic turn.

5.30pm, 18.0 overs (21.0 overs remain)
Glamorgan 74-3, Labuschagne 32* Carlson 0* trail by 99 runs
Tom Bailey strikes with two wickets in two balls!

First Joe Cooke was bowled for 14 and then Billy Root lbw first ball. Kiran Carlson, who is the leading batsmen in the national Championship averages at the moment averaging 69 is the new batsman.

Labuschagne then has a big waft at Danny Lamb and misses – this is a game that you can’t take your eyes off!

5.10pm, 15.0 overs (24.0 overs remain)
Glamorgan 70-1, J.Cooke 14* Labuschagne 28* trail by 103 runs
No further successes for the Red Rose attack although they have come close a couple of times, Marnus Labuschagne, who has scored just 44 runs in six innings this season before today, surviving after playing and missing at Luke Wood a couple of times.

But he’s also driven nicely a couple of times too and now has five fours to his name as Glamorgan’s positive start continues.

Mahmood off after 7 overs, 1-19 and replaced by Danny Lamb.

4.45pm, 9.0 overs (30.0 overs remain)
Glamorgan 39-1, J.Cooke 14* Labuschagne0* trail by 134 runs
Saqib Mahmood has the first wicket after nipping one back to bowl David Lloyd for 21, the batsman offering no shot.

That brings Marnus Labuschagne to the crease-although he won’t have to face Jimmy Anderson this time!

4.28pm, 6.0 overs (33.0 overs remain)
Glamorgan 35-0, J.Cooke 11* Lloyd  20* trail by 138 runs
Glamorgan have got off to a racing start over these opening six overs with Cooke and Lloyd playing some attacking shots. It’s prompted Dane Vilas to make an early change and bring on Luke Wood.

4.10pm, 2.0 overs (37.0 overs remain)
Glamorgan 15-0, J.Cooke 5* Lloyd  6* trail by 158 runs
Openers David Lloyd & Joe Cooke are under way in the Glamorgan innings after the hosts bowling Lancashire out for 173.

Tom Bailey & Saqib Mahmood with the ball and Mahmood’s first delivery hardly bounces and shoots through for four byes but then Cooke plays an authentic off-drive for four.

3.42pm, TEA Day 1.
Lancashire are 173 all out after Tom Bailey is bowled for a top-score in this innings of 31 by Dan Douthwaite to cap a great start by the hosts. Matt Parkinson was 6 not out.

It's Lancashire's lowest score since they were dismissed also for 173 against Notts last year.

But this wicket has given encouragement to the bowlers throughout the day, so it will be interesting to see how Glamorgan fare now it is their turn to bat.

There are still 39 overs to be bowled today.

3.30pm, 52.3 overs
Lancashire 164-9, Bailey 29* Parkinson 0*
Tom Bailey is producing a really good innings for Lancashire. He’s hit 5 fours so far and is now top run-scorer in this innings.

Earlier Danny Lamb was lbw to Michael Neser. for 12 and Saqib Mahmood has just chopped on to his stumps for 4 off Dan Douthwaite.

We’ve just seen spin introduced into the Glamorgan attack for the first time with Andrew Salter coming on.

2.45pm, 43.1 overs
Lancashire 122-7, Lamb 7* Bailey 0*
Luke Wood clipped James Weighell over midwicket for six and is now the top-scorer in the innings.

Liam Livingstone follows for 17 from the next delivery when he edges David Lloyd off the first ball of the 34th over to wicketkeeper Chris Cooke standing up.

1.53pm, 31.0 overs
Lancashire 83-4, Livingstone 19* Vilas 10*
Dane Vilas gets under way with a drive for four to midwicket straight after lunch.

David Lloyd gets one delivery to rise sharply and then the following one doesn’t bounce much. Liam Livingstone did well there because this wicket is making batting tricky.

Hogan over pitches and is driven through midwicket for four by Livingstone.

1.00pm, LUNCH Day 1, 28.0 overs
Lancashire 74-4, Livingstone 11* Vilas 6*
Undoubtedly Glamorgan’s morning with their bowlers exploiting the helpful conditions with a good line and length. Movement off the pitch and the odd delivery keeping low has made it a difficult morning for the Red Rose batsmen.

12.45pm, 23.0 overs
Lancashire 66-4, Livingstone 9* Vilas 0*
A fourth wicket falls when Josh Bohannon gets a faint outside edge to a Michael Neser delivery that left him off the pitch, caught behind by Chris Cooke for 14.

12.35pm, 21.0 overs
Lancashire 60-3, Bohannon 12* Livingstone 5*
Josh Bohannon and Liam Livingstone have both struck a boundary apiece but the Lancashire batsmen are finding it tough going this morning as the Glamorgan bowlers have struck a good line and length and are getting a bit of life out of the wicket.

Having said that Bohannon has just cut away Weighell for another four.

12.09pm, 14.5 overs
Lancashire 37-3, Bohannon 1* Livingstone 0*
James Weighell is having a good morning!

Lancashire lose a third wicket when Alex Davies mistimes a cut off Weighell and is caught for 21 by Andrew Salter. That's two wickets for the right-arm seamer now in his third over.

11.57am, 12.1 overs
Lancashire 32-2, Davies 17* Bohannon 0*
A couple of boundaries by Alex Davies off Michael Hogan broke a fairly quite passage of play, the first a booming drive through cover and the second courtesy of a misfield.

But Glamorgan now have a second wicket after Luke Wells is lbw for 10, padding up to James Weighell.

11.35am, 8.0 overs
Lancashire 20-1, Davies 8* Wells 9*
Luke Wells has struck the first boundary of the day, a measured drive through extra cover off Michael Neser, as he and Alex Davies look to settle in following the early loss of Keaton Jennings.

It’s cloudy at Cardiff this morning although there was a brief interlude of sunshine a short while ago. Glamorgan won the toss and put Lancashire in to bat.

11.16am, 3.4 overs
Lancashire 5-1, Davies 2* Wells 0*
Luke Wells is striding out to join Alex Davies after Keaton Jennings is bowled by Michael Hogan for 3. Looks like Hogan found a bit of movement off the pitch to get past Jennings’ drive.

11.08am, 2.0 overs
Lancashire 2-0, Jennings 2* Davies 0*
Michael Neser and Michael Hogan opening the bowling after Glamorgan won the toss and put Lancashire in to bat. Unchanged Lancashire have regular opening pair Keaton Jennings and Alex Davies at the crease.

Glamorgan make one change from their previous match against Kent with James Weighell replacing Timm van der Gugten who has been called up for international duty by The Netherlands.

Joe Cooke, David Lloyd, Marnus Labuschagne, Billy Root, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke (capt/wk), Dan Douthwaite, Michael Neser, Andrew Salter, James Weighell, Michael Hogan.

Lancashire: Keaton Jennings, Alex Davies, Luke Wells, Josh Bohannon, Dane Vilas (capt/wk), Liam Livingstone, Danny Lamb, Luke Wood, Tom Bailey, Saqib Mahmood, Matt Parkinson.

Glamorgan have won the toss and put Lancashire in to bat

Lancashire and Glamorgan are both playing their 8th game in Group 3 of the LV= Insurance County Championship, and it’s the first encounter between the two teams at Cardiff for 25 years with Lancashire’s last victory here in 1981, three games ago.

Glamorgan are in 4th place in the table with 80 points and trail second-placed Yorkshire by 19 points, while group leaders Lancashire, the only unbeaten team in the Championship this season, are on 123 points and have 26 point advantage over third-placed Northants going into today’s fixture.

Lancashire could seal a place in the top two-and a place in Division One of the Championship-with a big win in this match, but that would also require a heavy defeat for Northants against Kent at Canterbury.

It is dry this morning at Cardiff and play will start on time at 11am with the toss and teams announced just after 10.30am.
