Five-Wicket Haul for Harris as Taylor Gets Century
ENGLAND Lions pair James Taylor and James Harris were the stars of the third day of Glamorgan's County Championship Division Two clash against Leicestershire at Colwyn Bay.
Taylor scored 127 not out, his first Championship century of the season, while Harris claimed five wickets for 45 runs from 27 overs - this third five-wicket haul of the summer.
Leicestershire declared their first innings on 309 for seven in a bid to force a positive result.
And, with an 83-run first innings advantage, Glamorgan finished their second innings on 146 for four - an overall lead of 229.
Glamorgan will probably hope to leave Leicestershire a chase in the region of 320-330 runs from 60-70 overs.
Leicestershire had resumed the third morning on 140 for four requiring a further 103 to avoid the follow-on.
In a morning session relatively free of incident, Glamorgan managed to take just the one wicket when Harris claimed his fourth wicket accounting for Wayne White - who had reached his 50 from 80 balls.
When Paul Dixey joined Taylor the east Midlands county still wanted 82 to save the follow-on.
Taylor had been very watchful throughout his innings until on 72 he played his first shot in anger - driving Robert Croft for six over long-on, a shot which should have been caught by Will Owen on the boundary.
Dixey went to his 50 from 95 balls, but in the next over he edged Harris into Wallace's gloves to give the seamer his fifth victim - his third five-wicket haul of the summer. …
