Glamorgan 449 and 246 for 5 dec (Labuschagne 100, Selman 58) drew with Worcestershire 370 (D'Oliveira 103) and 143 for 1 (Ferguson 70*, Mitchell 64*)

Marnus Labuschagne soon reached the ten runs he needed for his second century of the match and fifth of the Championship season, but Glamorgan's meeting with Worcestershire crawled to a draw as the visitors made no attempt to chase down their target of 326 in 66 overs at Sophia Gardens.

Worcestershire ended on 143 for 1 in glorious sunshine. Ever since the first morning when Joe Leach inserted Glamorgan, his team were on the back foot and, apart from Brett D'Oiveira's splendid all-round performance, his team lacked confidence and will need to improve if they have any hopes of a return to Division One after this season.

At tea, the visitors needed a further 219 from the remaining 34 overs, and with Glamorgan employing attacking fields and the explosive Rikki Wessels next in, there were hopes that Worcestershire might have a go, but the tactics remained unchanged and the supporters - some from over the border - began to drift away disappointed with what they had seen.

Glamorgan had added 109 runs during the morning session and were 325 runs ahead at lunch when David Lloyd declared.

Labuschagne failed to add to his hundred when he swept D'Oiveira to deep square leg, and after Nick Selman had completed two fifties in the game, and Lloyd went for 12, Dan Douthwaite struck a brisk 40 before departing shortly before lunch.

I thought we had a chance, but Worcestershire weren't interested which was a bit surprising as they had some quality batsmen to come.

Ferguson reached his fifty from 75 balls, but Mitchell failed to show any attacking intent and faced 24 more balls than his partner to reach a painstaking fifty.

Glamorgan gained 13 points from the game to remain unbeaten and stay in contention at the top of Division Two, while Worcestershire took 10 points ahead of next week's game against Derbyshire at Kidderminster.
