Northamptonshire’s hopes of pressing home their sizeable advantage to complete victory against Glamorgan were dashed by the weather on the final day of this Vitality County Championship match at Wantage Road.

Northamptonshire needed to take seven wickets today after reducing Glamorgan to 104 for three last night, the visitors still trailing by 230 runs. The home side had posted a mammoth 605 for six in their first innings before declaring.

But heavy overnight rain and constant drizzle throughout the morning prevented play from resuming and umpires Sue Redfern and Graham Lloyd finally called the game off shortly after 4pm.
