LONDON: South African batsmen Ashwell Prince and Alviro Petersen piled on a record 501 runs for the third wicket in Lancashire’s county championsh­ip match against Glamorgan. It was the highest partnershi­p for any wicket in the county’s 151year history, and only the 13th time in first-class cricket that any stand passed 500 runs. Glamorgan finally parted the pair when Prince was out for a career-best 261. Petersen, having batted for more than eight hours, then fell six overs later for 286.
