5.26pm – The umpires have been checking the light in the last 10-15 minutes, and now Adam Lyth is on. Glamorgan are 105-2.

4.32pm – We’ve had a fairly lengthy concussion check after a Cliff bouncer hit Northeast as he attempted to pull. Glamorgan 56-2. Just about to resume.

4.09pm – We’re up and running after tea. Ben Cliff is bowling to Sam Northeast. Glamorgan 35-2 in their second innings, trailing by 192.

3.46pm – Tea Report Yorkshire remain on course for an LV= Insurance County Championship victory over Glamorgan at Cardiff and have struck at the start of the home side’s second innings having made them follow on during the third afternoon.

Glamorgan, replying to a first-innings 500, were bowled out for 273 in their first innings as Matthew Revis completed an excellent career best 5-50 – his maiden five-wicket haul. 

They have since reached tea on 35-2 from 17 overs in their second innings.

Glamorgan advanced from 213-7 at lunch. Ben Coad struck twice in as many balls – the first two with the second new ball – as score slipped to 217-9.

He trapped Dan Douthwaite lbw for 37 and bowled James Harris next ball.

Shan Masood juggled his bowlers almost immediately in order to save the likes of Coad and Jordan Thompson for the second innings, with the follow-on now certain.

But 10th-wicket pair Andy Gorvin and Jamie McIlroy frustrated the visitors with a partnership of 56.

Gorvin made 47 and McIlroy an unbeaten 30 – both career best scores.

But Revis ended the innings when he bowled an attacking Gorvin.

Coad then struck three balls into the Glamorgan second innings when Zain ul Hassan edged to George Hill at first slip – 0-1 – and Dom Bess backed him up by getting Colin Ingram caught at first slip by Lyth.

At that stage, Glamorgan were 30-2 just before tea.

Eddie Byrom and Sam Northeast will resume after tea on 14 and five respectively.

3.29pm – WICKET! Bess gets Ingram caught at slip by Lyth, 16. It’s 30-2 in the 13th over. Glamorgan trail by 197.

3.16pm – Ben Coad celebrates the wicket of Dan Douthwaite in Glamorgan’s first innings. Glamorgan are currently 19-1 in their second, with the early wicket also going to Coad. Picture by John Heald.

2.40pm – WICKET! Ul Hassan is caught at first slip by Hill off Coad. It’s 0-1 after three balls.

2.40pm – Glamorgan’s second innings is about to start. Coad to Zain ul Hassan to get us going. They trail by 227.

2.34pm – Confirmation indeed that Yorkshire have indeed enforced the follow-on.

2.28pm – WICKET! Revis bowls Gorvin for 47, finishing with excellent figures of 5-50. Glamorgan 273 all out, trailing by 227. The follow-on can be enforced. We wait to see whether it will be or not. Gorvin and McIlroy, with 30 not out, have both posted career best scores. 

2.24pm – Yorkshire are being frustrated by the 10th-wicket pair of Gorvin 43 and McIlroy 30. They have taken the score from 217-9 to 269-9.

2.09pm – Glamorgan have moved to 252-9, adding 35 for the last wicket. Gorvin has 38 and McIlroy 19.

1.46pm – WICKET! Coad bowls Harris first ball. It’s 217-9. Hat-trick ball incoming… Jamie McIlroy survives hat-trick ball.

1.43pm – WICKET! Coad strikes with his first ball of the day. Douthwaite lbw, 37. New ball works immediately. 217-8.

1.42pm – We’re up and running after lunch. Adam Lyth has bowled an over either side of lunch, and the new ball’s now due. Glamorgan 217-7. Douthwaite has 37. New ball has been taken. Coad with it.

1.02pm – Lunch Report Yorkshire have struck only once during a rain-affected third morning against Glamorgan at Cardiff.

Despite three stoppages, including a delayed start by half an hour, 29 overs have still been bowled – owing much to the use of Dom Bess as spinner. 

Glamorgan have advanced their first-innings reply to 500 all out from 150-6 overnight to 213-7 from 79 overs. The new ball is due almost immediately after lunch. 

Matthew Revis claimed the only wicket when he had Glamorgan captain Kiran Carlson caught at short-leg by James Wharton for 64 – 173-7 after 60 overs.

That ended a 73-run partnership with Dan Douthwaite, who has advanced to 41 not out after coming into this game as a concussion substitute for Ben Kellaway at the start of day two.

Andy Gorvin will begin the afternoon on 18 not out. 

12.55pm – Glamorgan have advanced to 212-7 after 77 overs. Douthwaite has 41 and Gorvin 18.

12.24pm – We’ll be underway again in a couple of minutes. Two more overs lost.

12.16pm – We’re off for rain again. Glamorgan 190-7.

12.06pm – James Wharton catches Kiran Carlson this morning. Picture by John Heald.

11.53am – The umpires are on their way back out. The rain has disappeared. We have lost a further three overs – so 81.4 remaining in the day.

11.44am – We’re off for rain with Glamorgan at 175-7 in the 62nd over. Douthwaite 27 and Gorvin 2. The hosts are replying to 500.

11.36am – WICKET! Carlson has been caught at short-leg by Wharton off Revis, 64. Breakthrough for Yorkshire comes as Glamorgan slip to 173-7.

11.35am – Glamorgan are 173-6 in the 60th over. Carlson has 64 and Douthwaite 27. They’ve shared 73 unbroken for the seventh wicket.

11.02am – Bess and now Revis to get us going. Glamorgan 155-6.

11am – Play about to start here at Cardiff. Dom Bess will be bowling to Kiran Carlson on 53. Glamorgan 150-6 replying to our 500.

10.10am – We will be starting at 11am.

10.06am – Nothing confirmed, but it’s looking like an 11am start here. The scoreboard has cut the day’s allocation from 104 overs to 96, which equates to a half hour delay.

9.07am – Good morning from Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, where there has been a decent amount of overnight rain. It’s only just stopped.

We tweeted about 10-15 minutes ago that it would be a surprise if play started on time at 10.30am, and that view still holds true. But, since then, the ground staff have started their mopping up process, and the Glamorgan backroom staff have started setting up for their morning warm-up.

The football nets were the first thing to be set out.

So it’s not completely out of the question we could get going at 10.30am. If not, hopefully it won’t be too long a delay.

When play does resume, Glamorgan will be 150-6 in their first-innings reply to Yorkshire’s 500 all out. Shan Masood completed a superb 192 yesterday before Matthew Revis claimed three of the six home wickets to fall.

Given a full day’s play, or close to, it’s not out of the question that victory could be wrapped up today by Yorkshire.

While Revis gained success, Ben Cliff also had his first bowl in first-class cricket and encouraged in his opening overs before being got after a bit late on. He returned 0-41 from eight overs.
