    Carlson maiden ton rescues Glamorgan

    Kiran Carlson’s maiden century rescued Glamorgan from the depths of 34 for five to frustrate Essex’s hopes of promotion

     
    Kiran Carlson’s maiden century rescued Glamorgan from the depths of 34 for five to frustrate Essex’s hopes of racing to the six points they required to secure the Specsavers County Championship Division Two title and promotion to the top flight.
     
    Instead Essex had to settle for just two bowling bonus points from the first day as a pre-lunch glut of wickets turned into unmitigated toil in the wilting heat of the afternoon and evening.
     
    The 18-year-old Carlson, who came to the crease with four wickets down, became the youngest Glamorgan player to score a century. He passed three-figures in 192 balls and contained 15 fours. When bad light ended the day six overs short, he had reached 101, which represented his highest score of a career just three Championship games old. In fact, his four previous innings read 1, 10, 0 and 0.
