Glamorgan v Nottinghamshire, County Championship Division 2, Cardiff, 19-22/05/17

Glamorgan produced an incredible last day rearguard to salvage an unlikely draw against a powerful Nottinghamshire outfit at the SWALEC stadium.

For most of the match, Glamorgan were really on the back foot, with Nottinghamshire's 448, featuring centuries from Jake Libby and Rikki Wessels, feeling rather large as the home side stumbled to 187 all out in reply.

With the follow on unsurprisingly enforced, an away victory for the Outlaws seemed nailed on, especially when Glamorgan were 194/5. That, however, was the end of the wickets falling, as Colin Ingram (155 not out) and Chris Cooke (113 not out) batted throughout the final day, as well part of the penultimate day, to frustrate the high flying visitors and deny them victory for the first time this season.
