"We were three down for 70 and a piece on the back foot, yet to bat the entire day with 'Cart' was awesome. He's batted truly well and we've moved at a decent rate.

"It was an awesome exertion from Michael Hogan, he's been a high-class bowler since he's joined Glamorgan and has driven the assault splendidly for the last seven or eight years. Ideally he'll return the morning and get his 600th top of the line wicket,

"The new ball (postponed until) after 90 overs makes groups thoroughly consider a touch of the container, and around the nation groups are presumably playing a couple of all the more bowling alternatives to give them that assortment. It's useful for the game."

"Kiran and Billy played awesome, satisfied to get the feet up and watch the two folks bat. It is a great wicket, Worcestershire bowled well with the new ball however then the wicket gets moderate and difficult to bowl on.

"The wicket's entirely unexpected from down in Somerset, however it's a major first hour toward the beginning of the day there's still a great deal of work to be finished.

"Prior we hit our lashes truly well (bowling). It was much cooler than the principal day and cloudy, however Libby and D'Oliveira played truly well on a decent wicket.

"I can see the explanations for the 120 overs limit, attempting to carry turn into the game, however I don't really concur with it - however perhaps I wouldn't have gotten the last couple of wickets on the off chance that they hadn't been attempting to clear the ropes."
