Glamorgan’s bowlers gave their side the upper hand on a rain-affected first morning of their Specsavers County Championship clash against Middlesex at Lord’s.
Visiting skipper Michael Hogan put the home side in, but only a single over could be bowled before rain held up play for more than an hour.
However, Lukas Carey soon found some movement from the Pavilion End and made the initial breakthrough by having Max Holden (7) caught behind.
Sam Robson (17) carved successive boundaries on the off-side before Hogan brought himself on and pierced the Middlesex opener’s defences with only his second ball.
Stevie Eskinazi (14*) and Dawid Malan (4*) saw the home side through to lunch at 46-2.
However, not long after the delayed afternoon session began Malan was caught at second slip by Nick Selman off Hogan for 25, before, moments later the rain started to fall again after moving the score onto 64-3.
