Scorecard

Glamorgan’s hopes of a surprise win over County Championship Group Three favourites Yorkshire were hit by the weather, after snow and sleet cut the third day to just one session.

Glamorgan go into day four on 161-4, an imposing lead of 298 runs.

Billy Root (77 not out) and Chris Cooke (a patient 57 not out) added a further 93 in the opening session.

Yorkshire’s attack was two men down with Ben Coad (pec) and Matthew Fisher (abdominal injury) off the field.

Root has had the better of older brother and England captain Joe so far, scoring 120 runs for once out.

But the ground could not recover from 90 minutes of snow and sleet, leaving Headingley under a wintry white blanket.

Glamorgan may need to…
