Welsh cyclist Geraint Thomas is set to finish in 15th position with the Tour de France finishing in Paris tomorrow afternoon.

The 29-year-old from Cardiff sits below Warren Barguil after falling from fourth position in the 19th stage yesterday.

But it's looking positive for Team Sky with Chris Froome set to clinch his second tour crown.

Glamorgan miss out on T20 qualification

Glamorgan failed to qualify for the quarter finals of the T20 blast after losing to Gloucestershire in a reduced 5 over match at the SWALEC Stadium.

The home side reached 41-1 off their allocation, opener Colin Ingram hitting a quickfire 18 off 8 balls.

But the visitors reached the target with seven balls to spare, opener Chris Dent hitting two sixes off Michael Hogan's penultimate over to see his side safely into the last 8.

Glamorgan now turn their attention to the Royal London One Day Cup - they take on Nottinghamshire Outlaws in the 50 over competition tomorrow.

Meanwhile Froome returns to the scene of his attack on Sir Bradley Wiggins hoping to move a step closer to a second Tour de France title.

The 30-year-old Team Sky leader must survive two days in the Alps to claim a second yellow jersey after his win in 2013 and exit following three crashes in two days 12 months ago.
