Glamorgan v Leicestershire, Championship Division 2, Cardiff, 17-20/04/16

It was a disappointing opening to the County Championship season for Glamorgan as they crashed to a 10 wicket defeat to Leicestershire at the SSE Swalec Stadium.

In cold conditions, Leicestershire turned down the away side's new right to bowl first, but Glamorgan won the toss and batted first scoring 348, with half centuries from Will Bragg, Chris Cooke, David Lloyd and Graeme Wagg.

In reply Leicestershire posted 427, with former home favourite Mark Cosgrove falling to a 2nd ball duck.

It was Glamorgan's 2nd innings that cost the game really, as 191 all out was rather pathetic, with only Aneurin Donald passing 50.

Leicestershire passed the 113 target with ease, sealing a comprehensive victory for the Foxes.
