Skipper Adam Lyth’s 220-ball 174 was the cornerstone of Yorkshire’s valiant attempt at gunning down 491, which they could not eventually, as the game ended in a draw. George Gill and Jordan Thompson also cracked fifties against Glamorgan, but Yorkshire eventually fell 79 short of the target.
In other news from the County Championship, Azhar Ali managed to give a firm riposte to Cheteshwar Pujara’s hundred with a century of his own as Worcestershire managed to draw their County Championship game against Sussex after conceding a lead of 109. Ali’s unbeaten 103 off 279 balls was the glue that binded the innings even as Ollie Robinson added another seven wickets to his tally in the second innings, eventually returning a rich haul of 14 wickets.
The 38-year-old from Pakistan had played a major role with a second-innings 62 in the away win over Derbyshire and this was another vital knock from the experienced campaigner. He reached three figures from 279 balls with his 11th four – to third man off Steve Smith – before the two teams shook hands.
