We were looking forward to pushing on and trying to extend our lead - Harrison

10 Apr 2021 | Cricket

Assistant coach, David Harrison, was left cursing the weather after a snow storm at lunch on day three prevented Glamorgan from pushing home their advantage against Yorkshire at Headingley. 

The Welsh county didn't lose a wicket in the opening session as captain Chris Cooke (57*) and Billy Root (77*) put on an unbroken 132-run partnership to move Glamorgan to 161/4 and a lead of 298, before the weather forced play to an early close.

“That’s a first for me, we played at Derby five years ago when we had a hailstorm but I’ve not seen a full-on snowstorm cause the end of a day’s play before," said Harrison.

“It’s a shame because we had a really good first session and were looking forward to pushing on and trying to extend our lead.

“Billy has been great since he joined us a couple of years ago and his form has been really consistent, he’s had a really good game against Joe in a bit of a side-plot, batted really well and nearly got Joe out.

“Hopefully the weather holds, we’ll have a chat about what to do in the morning but we’ve played really well in this game against a strong Yorkshire team.

“When the fixtures came out and you’re playing Yorkshire first game, they’re a big club with a lot of good players. But pre-season was positive, we’ve had a good first three days and hopefully we can finish well.”
