Colin Ingram’s fine form for Glamorgan continued as his 155 overshadowed Colin Ackermann’s knock of 89 for Leicestershire.
Glamorgan vs Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire ended day one on 335-6 and added to that total on day two before they were bowled out for 448. Ingram and Marchant de Lange took 1-17 and 1-114 respectively, as Glamorgan took their first attempt at the target.
Their chase was ineffective as they were bowled out for 187, the visitors enforcing the follow-on.
Their start was equally hapless in their second innings as their first, but Ingram batted steadily to remain unbeaten on 72 off 209 balls, as the hosts ended day two on 212-5 and trailing by 49 going into the final day.
On the final day, the former Protea picked up where he had left off, as his innings of 155 off 427 (14 fours) added great stability to the innings.
It was Ingram’s second ton of the County Championship season and allowed him to extend his lead atop the Glamorgan runs chart.
Ingram also found an unlikely partner in South African-born Chris Cook who contributed 113 (17 fours, one six). The pair added 226 to the Glamorgan cause to finish on 420-5.
The match was drawn.
Leicestershire vs Kent
Ackermann added to a good start to help anchor his side’s innings after they were reduced to 58-1. The Warriors batsman top-scored for his side, as he led Leicestershire past 250 before losing his wicket in the 86th over.
Ackermann was the fifth wicket to fall after he posted 89 off 194 balls (10 fours and a six), as his side posted 420 in their first innings.
In reply, Kent scored 462 to hold a first-innings lead of 42 runs. Dieter Klein was the pick of the Leicestershire bowlers, finishing with 4-62 in 21 overs.
Too much time had been taken out of the game by the respective first innings and the game ended in a draw with Leicestershire on 61-2 in their second innings.
