County Championship, Division Two, Swansea

Paul Collingwood led from the front with a fine century as Durham managed to post 342 in their first innings against Glamorgan despite Michael Hogan's five-wicket haul on day one of the County Championship Division Two clash in Swansea.

Durham decided to bat first on winning the toss. With the early loss of Stephen Cook (5) and Keaton Jennings, they were reduced to 17 for two.

Cameron Steel (59) and Graham Clark (48) resurrected the innings with a 86 run stand for the third wicket before Hogan (5-49) managed to dismiss them both while Marchant de Lange (2-57) accounted for Ryan Pringle (4) to leave Durham reeling at 169 for five.

However, Collingwood (127) kept the fight going for Durham and with support from Paul Coughlin (31) and Stuart Poynter (38) took the total past the 300-run mark before Hogan returned back to dismiss them for 342 in 94 overs.

Hogan was the pick of the Glamorgan bowlers with a five-wicket haul while Marchant de Lange (2-57) and Timm van der Gugten (2-66) picked two wickets apiece. Andrew Salter (1-56) picked the key wicket of Collingwood.
