Nick Selman and Billy Root give Glamorgan a chance for victory push


Berg and Parnell half-centuries show Northants route to draw

Glamorgan 407 (Cooke 136, Lloyd 65, Carlson 54) and 205 for 4 (Selman 69, Root 56) lead Northamptonshire 364 (Rossington 76, Berg 69) by 248 runs

Nick Selman found his LV= Insurance County Championship form with a half-century as Glamorgan piled on the runs to set up an intriguing final day at Wantage Road.

Opener Selman had experienced a wretched opening five innings of the season, with a run of 4, 0, 0, 11 and 17 before he terminated his poor form with a solid 69.

His efforts, along with Billy Root’s 56, helped Glamorgan reach close on 205 for four, 248 ahead, although an increasingly flat pitch is likely to stand in the way of victory over Northamptonshire.

Earlier, Gareth Berg and debutant Wayne Parnell both scored half-centuries to give Northants a first-innings deficit of 43 – having been 56 for five.
