Gloucestershire v Glamorgan, Day 3, Bristol, 02/09/11

An astonishing 17 wickets fell on a topsy turvy day at Bristol, but ultimately it was Gloucestershire who held the whip hand and closed needing only another 133 runs for victory on the final day.

Glamorgan were made to pay dearly for a disastrous afternoon session during which they lost 8 wickets for 128 runs. This was after an excellent fight back during the morning's play when they managed to force a 37 run lead on first innings. Unfortunately, being dismissed for 148 second time around looked like being their undoing in this game, and a rare Gloucestershire victory over the daffodil county beckoned.
