Match scorecard

Glamorgan captain Chris Cooke was carried off with an ankle injury as Gloucestershire took control on day two in Newport.

Cooke slipped while batting as he turned for a second run and needed medical treatment, as his team slumped to 241-8.

Gloucestershire had piled up 463 all out thanks to 103 from Ryan Higgins.

The day was enlivened by a sightscreen collapse as bowler David Payne saw a panel fall off as he tried to move it.

Thankfully he was unhurt, after claiming the first two wickets either side of lunch to start the Glamorgan slide.

Spinner George Drissell then dismissed David Lloyd, stumped for 37, and top scorer Charlie Hemphrey for 60 with the visitors remaining on top.

Cooke’s injury overshadowed the evening session as Graham Wagg (45 not out) saw them just survive to the close.
