Yorkshire skipper Shan Masood extended his highest score for the county to 192 as he led his side to maximum batting points against Glamorgan on the second day of their LV= Insurance County Championship clash at Sophia Gardens.

The Pakistani Test star dominated the day once again as he built on his overnight tally of 113. That had led his side to an overnight score of 330 for three, which then grew to 500 before their first innings ended with a run out in the 122nd over.

Yorkshire then tightened their grip on the game by dismissing six home batters before the end of the second day to leave the Welsh county reeling at 150 for six, still trailing by 350 runs and potentially facing the follow-on. A battling, unbeaten half-century from Kiran Carlson kept Glamorgan’s hopes alive.

Masood was at the heart of his side’s third score of 500 this summer and he brought up his 150 off 191 balls with 15 fours. He was finally beaten eight runs short of what would have been his third Championship double-century – he scored two for Derbyshire in 2022 – when he was caught by Sam Northeast off the bowling of James Harris.


He enjoyed two century partnerships – 127 with Finlay Bean and 132 with George Hill – and put on 53 for the sixth wicket with Matthew Revis as the Yorkshire batters dominated the home bowling.

Yorkshire lost George Hill for 71, Jonny Tattersall for six and Revis for 28 in the morning session as they went into lunch have secured their five batting points by reaching 448 for six from 107 overs.

No sooner had Masood departed, than Jordan Thompson went the very next ball from Harris, and it only took Glamorgan a further five overs to mop up the tail. It was still not enough, though, to earn them the three bowling points they needed to keep alive their outside hopes of staying in the promotion race.

Midway through the day the news came through that Durham had gained promotion to Division One due to Leicestershire’s failure to earn any batting bonus points against Sussex. The north-east county need a maximum of five points from their last two games to seal the Division Two title.

After suffering defeat at Worcester last week, the target for Glamorgan was to win the game with a full set of bonus points, but set the tall order of chasing 500 they then got off to a poor start with the bat.

Zain-ul-Hassan was bowled by the last ball of the fifth over from Ben Coad for eight and when the experienced Colin Ingram had his bails sent flying in the air by Thompson for five three overs later, Glamorgan were struggling at 19 for two.

By the end of play they were reduced to six down after Dom Bess had clean-bowled Northeast for 16, Revis had ended his first over by removing Eddie Byrom for 40 and then had Billy Root caught behind for four.

The Yorkshire paceman ended the day for 3-20 from his five overs.
