Match scorecard

Glamorgan's Graham Wagg produced a fine performance against his old side Derbyshire on day one in Cardiff.

Wagg, who was at Derbyshire for five years from 2005 to 2010, claimed bowling figures of 6-44 as the visitors struggled to 130 all out.

Derbyshire were 44-5 before a much-needed sixth-wicket partnership of 48.

However, Glamorgan made a terrible start to their reply as Gareth Rees, Stewart Walters, William Bragg and Ben Wright were out with the hosts on 37-4.

Tony Palladino took two wickets, while Jonathan Clare and Mark Footitt chipped in with one each.

Edward Bevan's report

"The batsmen on both sides struggled as the seamers took advantage of the early-season conditions.

"Fourteen wickets fell for just 167 runs in 68 overs, on a day when 26 overs were lost to rain.

"Graham Wagg, bowling against his former county took 6-44, his best figures for Glamorgan, who then struggled when it was their turn to bat.

"It was the same story around the country as the wickets tumbled and batsmen failed to adapt to the cold conditions."
