Glamorgan v Northamptonshire, County Championship Division 2, Cardiff, 25-28/06/18

Glamorgan's disappointing Championship season continued as the home side went down to a crushing 233 run defeat to Northamptonshire, who, prior to the game, had been bottom of the table.

In searing heat, with most of the crowd sitting in the shade, Glamorgan conceded a 27 run 1st innings lead, which was largely due to a superb 103 from Usman Khawaja, who became the first Glamorgan player to score 3 centuries in his first 3 games for the club.

Things went downhill from there, as Northants batsmen put the home bowlers to the sword. Ben Duckett returned to form with 133. Set an unlikely target of 433, the Welsh county rarely threatened, with no one passing fifty as they stumbled to 200 all out.

Glamorgan's 4 day form shows real cause for concern.
