Live blog: Lancashire vs Glamorgan, Day Four

Live updates from Emirates Old Trafford

Welcome to the live blog for Day Four of Lancashire's LV= Insurance County Championship match at home to Glamorgan.

Thanks for following the blog during this game.

Our match report and reaction will follow.

5.53pm, MATCH DRAWN
Match drawn as the players bump fists as Lancashire clinch a third batting point with a 3 by Jimmy Anderson. Lancashire finish on 301-9 dec and that was a great contribution by Matt Parkinson who was unbeaten on 16.

Both teams get 14 points from the match.

5.35pm, 90.3 overs
Lancashire 286-9, Parkinson 7* Anderson 0*
Saqib Mahmood thumped consecutive fours of Michael Neser before the bowler produced a great reaction catch off his own bowling to dismiss Mahmood for 9.
Matt Parkinson has crashed one four but Danny Lamb has just gone, bowled by David Lloyd for 22.

5.15pm, 87 overs
Lancashire 267-7, Lamb 20* Mahmood 0*
A nice cameo of 28 off 26 balls by Luke Wood came to an end when he top-edged a pull off Dan Douthwaite that was caught by wicketkeeper Cooke. 

With 15 overs left, Lancashire's immediate ambition now will be to reach 300 and a third batting point.

5.00pm, 83.0 overs
Lancashire 254-6, Lamb 16* Wood 19*
Danny Lamb and Luke Wood are going for their shots as the weather threatens to close in again, Lamb striking two nice fours in the last over from Dan Douthwaite.

4.30pm
The light has improved and we will restart at 4.35pm with 12 overs lost, leaving 24.5 overs left.

4.00pm, Game delay, bad light.
We were hoping to have started again after tea but although the rain has stopped we now have bad light holding up play.

3.30pm, TEA Day 4, 77.1 overs, rain delay.
Lancashire 208-5
Josh Bohannon reaches his third half-century of the season with a four over wide mid-on off Marnus Labuschagne. His 50 came off 105 balls with 2 sixes & 3 fours and Lancashire now have their first batting point, but Josh is then out for 53 after cutting Callum Taylor to Andrew Salter at backward point for 53. Immediately after his dismissal rain stops play so we have taken an early tea.

3.00pm, 69.2 overs
Lancashire 183-4, Bohannon 42* Vilas 0*
Josh Bohannon has hit his second six, this time off Marnus Labuschagne and this pair have really accelerated the scoring with their partnership reaching 50 off just 57 balls.

But Livingstone has just holed out to the fielder on the deep square-leg boundary. He’s gone for an entertaining 25 off 28 balls and Dane Vilas is the new batsman.

2.45pm, 66.0 overs
Lancashire 168-3, Bohannon 29* Livingstone 23* (off 19 balls)
We’ve had another six struck since the last update. This time it’s Josh Bohannon who has hit a maximum off the suffering Andrew Salter. Glamorgan skipper Chris Cooke put a long-on in position now to give Salter some protection but has now brought on Marnus Labuschange on to bowl with mid-off and mid-on both halfway back. This could be interesting.

Liam Livingstone reached the 3,000 run milestone with his first six at an average of 40.20.

2.17pm, 62.0 overs
Lancashire 150-3, Bohannon 19* Livingstone 12*
It’s raining at Emirates Old Trafford-raining sixes that is! Liam Livingstone is 12 not out after hitting Andrew Salter straight into the pavilion seats. That’s livened things up a bit!

2.15pm, 59.3 overs
Lancashire 133-3, Bohannon 17* Livingstone 0*
Having driven Andrew Salter straight for four, Keaton Jennings attempts to repeat the shot but slices his drive off the spinner to Callum Taylor at backward point to depart for 64.

2.00pm, 55.2 overs
Lancashire 117-2, Jennings 52* Bohannon 13*
Keaton Jennings goes to his third half-century in three innings off 163 balls with a sumptuous cover drive off Michael Neser for four!

1.00pm, LUNCH Day 4, 50.0 overs
Lancashire 108-2, Jennings 46* Bohannon 10*
Keaton Jennings continuing his recent good form reaches the break on 46 from a patient 146 deliveries. Lancashire in the main looking fairly untroubled so far with Alex Davies getting the ball of the day so far from Michael Neser early on.

12.39pm, 42.2 overs
Lancashire 87-2, Jennings 40* Bohannon 0*
Luke Wells, having batted nicely for 30, goes down the track to off spinner Andrew Salter and skies a catch to Dan Douthwaite at mid-off who has to make a number of adjustments as the ball swirls in the wind. Pity, Wells was looking really good until that point.

12.15pm, 38.0 overs
Lancashire 74-1, Jennings 33* Wells 24*
Both Keaton Jennings and Luke Wells have settled into a good partnership, with Jennings cutting van der Gugten for four a few overs back and Wells contributing three lovely drives for four. Their 50 partnership has just arrived from 89 balls.

11.54am, 32.0 overs
Lancashire 57-1, Jennings 29* Wells 13*
Luke Wells, making his home debut, has played a couple of nice drives for four and Lancashire are making steady progress after losing the wicket of Alex Davies earlier.

Glamorgan have returned to spin from one end with Callum Taylor back into the attack. Michael Neser has bowled a really good, accurate spell and is now taking a rest with figures of 11-8-13-1.

11.17am, 22.0 overs
Lancashire 24-1, Jennings 9* Wells 0*
That didn't last long! After seeing one over of spin from Taylor, Glamorgan have brought on seam bowler Timm van der Gugten from the James Anderson end.

But it's his bowling partner at the other end that strikes first! Michael Neser produces a good length delivery that moves away off the pitch and finds the edge of the bat, Alex Davies caught behind for 15.

11.05am, 20.0 overs
Lancashire 22-0, Jennings 8* Davies 14*
Keaton Jennings and Alex Davies resume the Lancashire first innings with Glamorgan opting to start with the off spin of Callum Taylor and the pace of Aussie overseas bowler Michael Neser.

10.30am
Good morning from Emirates Old Trafford where thankfully we have much better conditions than 24 hours ago with play starting on time at 11am.

It is dry but cloudy at the ground at present. 

There are 96 overs available today on top of the 18 overs already played in Lancashire’s innings, so both teams will be aiming to add further bonus points before the 110 over cut-off point arrives just before the scheduled close. One target Lancashire need to achieve is the follow-on of 195 runs which represents Glamorgan’s only chance of forcing an unlikely result.
