LV County Championship - Division Two -
Glamorgan 348 (G P Rees 126, R Croft 89 not out, G Wagg 5-112, J L Clare 4-34) v Derbyshire 225-5 (D J Redfern 69 no, W W Hinds 54)
Derbyshire (8pts) drew with Glamorgan (8pts)
Both teams took eight points from the game after the final day's play was washed out, the decision being taken as early as 11am.
England U19 batsman Daniel Redfern hit a career-best 69 not out and Wavell Hinds also hit a half century as Derbyshire made slow progress on a rain-hit third day.
Resuming on 82-2, the hosts added 143 runs in the 43 overs of play that were possible with the loss of three further wickets, the partnership of 79 between Hinds and Redfern the highlight of the day's proceedings.
Adam Shantry added a third wicket to his two the previous evening by removing Dan Birch for 28, and Greg Smith was sent back by Jason Gillespie with the score on 101.
The entire afternoon session was washed out but when play resumed Hinds and Redfern ensured their side passed the follow-on target of 199.
But the West Indian, who had played and missed on numerous occasions, finally nicked David Harrison behind having made 54.
Redfern had looked the more assured of the two and reached his second championship fifty with a flashing square cut off Harrison, adding 45 in nine overs with Tom New (19no) as another disappointing day drew to a close.
Robert Croft scored his first half-century of the season as the Glamorgan tail wagged successfully on a truncated second day at Derby.
The veteran all-rounder was left on 89 not out as Graham Wagg claimed the final two wickets to finish with figures of five for 112, but it was a rare first innings success for the visitors who then claimed two wickets before rain intervened.
Derbyshire would have fancied wrapping up the Glamorgan innings quickly with a new ball on the second morning but Croft and David Harrison plundered the bowling.
Croft reached his fifty, which contained seven fours, from 124 balls and his stand with Harrison took the visitors past 300 as Derbyshire became increasingly desperate for a breakthrough.
When the partnership reached 75, it equalled Glamorgan's ninth-wicket record against Derbyshire in 1955 and Harrison brought up a new milestone in style by hooking Ian Hunter onto the pavilion roof.
Harrison eventually had a rush of blood when he gave Wagg's slow left-arm spin the charge and was stumped for 29 to end a stand that had added 88 in 19 overs.
Only four more runs were added before Wagg switched back to seam and forced Adam Shantry to play on, denying Croft what would have been a deserved century.
As Derbyshire replied Jason Gillespie should have sent back Paul Borrington before he had scored but Alex Wharf put down the chance at gully.
But they lost skipper Chris Rogers in the fourth over after lunch when he was bowled for 30 driving at Shantry, who then found some movement to have Borrington caught at first slip for 17.
Both Dan Birch and Wavell Hinds were beaten several times before the rain arrived leaving Derbyshire 266 runs behind.
Gareth Rees crafted a career-best 126 to propel Glamorgan up to a respectable 257-8 at stumps on day one against Derbyshire.
The 23-year-old opener is proving a thorn in Derbyshire's side as he notched his third century in two seasons against the Division Two promotion hopefuls before bad light and then rain ended play prematurely.
All-rounder Jonathan Clare (4-16) and left-arm paceman Graham Wagg (3-77) shared seven wickets for the hosts, however Glamorgan recovered admirably from 84-4.
Newly-appointed captain Chris Rogers' decision to bowl first looked a shrewd one when David Hemp (16), Tom Maynard (8), Mike Powell (0) and Jamie Dalrymple (5) were all back in the pavilion early.
However, Rees was proving much harder to remove at the other end, and the gritty left-hander, in partnership with gloveman Mark Wallace began rebuilding the Glamorgan innings.
Rogers then threw the ball to Clare in the hope he would provide the breakthrough, and he did by having Wallace caught at mid on for 23 before going on to trap Alex Wharf lbw for six to plunge Glamorgan back into trouble at 159-6.
But Robert Croft joined Rees in a stand which held up the home attack for 29 overs and made sure Glamorgan would reach a competitive total.
Rees went on to complete his fourth first-class century and surpass his previous best of 109 before Wagg picked up his third wicket of the day to remove the Welshman for a fine 126.
That ended a stand of 90 in 29 overs with Croft, and Glamorgan lost Jason Gillespie (4) to Wavell Hinds before the umpires took the players off shortly before an electrical storm hit the County Ground.
