South African fast bowler Gareth Berg took career-best bowling figures as Middlesex dismissed Glamorgan cheaply on day three.

The first two days were lost to rain but the visitors soon made up for lost time as Berg took 6-58 in Glamorgan's 157, despite William Bragg's 52.

Middlesex closed 12 runs ahead on 169-4, with Australian Chris Rogers unbeaten on 81

England Test captain Andrew Strauss made nine, while Jim Allenby took 2-31.


BBC Radio London's Kevin Hand:

"It was a good toss to win. Having been under cover for so long, the pitch offered a great deal to the bowlers as the ball nipped around and Tim Murtagh and the unlucky Corey Collymore troubled the batsmen from the start.

"Gareth Berg was the star though, as he returned from a long injury lay off to rip through the hosts with pace and movement.

"Chris Rogers dug in for his half century despite being tormented at times by the moving ball, in particular from Will Owen, while John Simpson was the only batsmen to look remotely comfortable."
