JOE ROOT was dismissed for an unconvincing 59-ball 16 as one of 16 wickets to fall during an exhilarating second day at Headingley between Yorkshire and Glamorgan, the visitors just maintaining the advantage.

This opening round LV= Insurance County Championship fixture was firmly in Glamorgan’s hands having posted 330 in their first innings during the opening half-hour before bowling their hosts out for 193.

Yorkshire narrowly avoided the follow-on yet conceded a 137 lead at tea.

But Ben Coad, who claimed four for 94 in the first innings, then struck three times with the new ball under overcast skies to reduce the Welshman to 29-4. Glamorgan later closed on 68 for four from 29 overs, a lead of 205.

Test captain Root miscued a full toss from 22-year-old off-spinner Callum Taylor to mid-off shortly after lunch which left Yorkshire 79-4.

An unbeaten 38 from Dom Bess was key in helping the hosts reach the follow-on target of 181 just before tea after the score had slipped to 175-9.

Taylor was joined in taking two wickets by seam trio Michael Hogan, Dan Douthwaite and David Lloyd.

Australian Hogan was a central figure in the morning session - with bat and ball. He moved from 40 overnight to 52 with three boundaries in the day’s first over from Coad as Glamorgan advanced from 310-8.

Coad claimed one of the two morning Glamorgan wickets, while unbeaten Timm van der Gugten advanced from 80 to 85, adding to Hogan’s 54.

Hogan reduced Yorkshire’s reply to 31-2, Tom Kohler-Cadmore caught behind and Tom Loten bowled.

Adam Lyth went for an innings-high 52, followed by Root and Harry Brook for 40. Root was only Taylor’s third first-class wicket.

At tea, Glamorgan’s hopes would have been sky-high - but Coad’s post-tea burst of three for 18 from six overs will have eroded that belief somewhat. He removed Nick Selman and Kiran Carlson caught behind and David Lloyd caught at third slip.
