On what turned into a searingly hot day credit must be given to everyone. Glamorgan resumed on 307-9 and added a further 36 before being finally dismissed for 343.
Eleven overs were bowled before lunch and Yorkshire were 32 without loss. This changed in the third over after lunch when Tom Loten was lbw for 15. Matthew Revis joined James Wharton and they were still unbeaten at tea having taken the score to 101-1, Revis 27 not out and Wharton having just posted his half century, not out on 53 from 135 balls.
Again, the break did Yorkshire few favours as Revis was adjudged caught behind down the leg side after making a patient 37 from 122 balls – Wharton still there on 57. Skipper Ben Birkhead made 11 from 32 balls before being lbw.
James Wharton had made 78 from 203 balls with seven fours when, with the score at 160 he was bowled – this lead to a mini collapse as Yorkshire lost three wickets for 27 runs. At the close of play, Yorkshire were 187-6 and still trailing by 156 runs.
