Seamer James Harris produced a spell of 3-0 in nine balls to put Glamorgan back into contention on day one of our LV = Insurance County Championship clash with fellow promotion contenders Middlesex at Lord’s.
With Middlesex 90-1 in reply to the Welsh county's 214 all out, Harris produced a fine burst from the Nursery End to reduce the hosts to 92-4 and leave the game in the balance.
“We are not a million miles off of being even Stevens to be honest," said Harris. "We knew it would be tough losing the toss in a 10:30 start in September on that wicket. It was a fight and we scrapped our way to 200.
“We needed to come out and get wickets and we did okay. They put a couple of partnerships together, but 132-4, a couple of early wickets in the morning we are right in this game.
“It is always good to bowl well and feel it is coming out nicely.
“I’ve been really lucky and privileged to play a lot here. I don’t know how many times I’ll get to play here again in the future, so it was lovely to find some rhythm and keep us in the game.
“The beans were going. I know their boys so well and spent a lot of time in a dressing-room with them, so always good to get a couple of them out.”
