Morning round up

In Cardiff, Australia will likely win its first game of the Natwest Trophy, but Bangladesh has given them more cause for worry -- 249/5 is not the kind of score the full-strength Aussies would have been looking to post against this opposition (and 9/2 inside the first six overs certainly not the start it needed).
In Southgate, Ganguly getting a bit of a workout -- an extended 7 over spell ahead of the tea break, after an unbeaten knock of 84/118 in the Glamorgan second innings. Glamorgan's bid to force a win seems at this point to be backfiring -- Ed Smith and Owais Shah both have unbeaten centuries, bringing the tally in this game to 7 including a double. What did they do, import an Indian pitch?
Elsewhere, Worcestershire (58 to win, six wickets in hand) likely to win its game against Leicestershire, for whom Dinesh Mongia top-scored in the first innings, and judging by reports was going well in the second before he played a rash swish.
