Great effort from Taylor alongside Carlson. If I was a Glamorgan player I would not want to lose this game now.

Well done to Carlson, 3 fine knocks out of 4 so far this season and we need him to stay for a long time tomorrow.

First home grown Glammy player to score two hundreds in a game for 16 years. I will be impressed if anyone can say who without looking it up.

Also rotating the strike well. Hopefully it won’t be a one-off this season. I don’t think it will. Just a shame no one has stuck with him.
1 decent innings and 2 brilliant innings out of 4. A one-off it it isn't, and it's only mid-April. All whilst studying for his finals. Fair play.

I sincerely hope he stays where he is. We have enough batting depth for him to be able to score plenty of runs at 5. Taylor coming in at 7 demonstrates that. Still got Douthwaite at 8. When Labuschagne and Neser arrive we will bat even deeper depending on whether we want a specialist spinner. My guess is they will make do with a combination of Marnus, Root and Taylor. That means that if you want to keep Douthwaite as a 4th seamer (OK if the other 3 are good enough) you could have Neser at 9 and Smith at 10 with Hogan or TvdG at 11. Enough to offset the problems with the openers which I think is probably unsolvable. The only player in that team who has regularly opened the batting is Smith. Did it for his Wales age group teams and the South and West region and still does it for St Fagans when he plays. What I tend to see is that batsmen often bat in a manner reflecting where they are put in the order. I think Lloyd is missing out at the top of the order and would be more productive at 4 with Marnus coming in at 3.

Not sure Cooke is quite correct in saying "It was a pretty good day for us". It was a great day for Carlson but a pretty dire one for the rest of the batsman, other than Taylor, who needs to hang around with Carlson this morning. The pitch is a road on which noone should ever get out. The attack is basically just Robinson as it looks like Garton is injured. Carson has bowled well but I'm not sure if I have seen a ball turn.
This game is emminently saveable.

Mature stuff from Taylor and Douthwaite.

Credit to the latter for seemingly learning a little about when to attack and when to defend.

that was a decent morning

seems to be a case of keeping ollie robinson at bay but the 2 young batsmen have been really disciplined

well done to them ,,,, sussex are beginning to get edgy

i think we need to bat another 30 overs and that should be enough .... worried about robinson;s first spell after lunch but the others are not threatening at all

Smith as an opening batsman??? I imagine almost every professional cricketer has regularly opened the batting in some team, on the basis that they are just better than everyone else...

Not only is he not nailed on to re-enter the team (he has to prove he can make it through multiple days of bowling, in multiple matches, and be in form), he certainly wouldn't come into the side at batting position 1.

I agree that over the course of April/May, we are unlikely to see them put in a specialist spinner, especially when Marnus returns.

Ollie Robinson has been absolutely standout here. No wonder England like him. Scarcely putting a ball anywhere but wherever he wants over the course of 50 overs or so. Credit to those who managed to score off him, like Lloyd and obviously Carlson.

I would have a wager with you that he will play as soon as he is deemed fit. That is the only question mark. He opened the bowling with Hogan in the only FC game he played last season (because of injury) - the opener against Somerset. TvdG was not selected.
I am certainly not saying he is a FC opening batsman. I am just suggesting it as an alternative to having to play Lloyd there and not losing any of the other batsmen. I think we are currently losing the runs Lloyd would be scoring if he batted at 4.

My guess is that the pitch was not the road that this is. It's the batsmen who have failed in this game, other than Carlson. SHould score 500+ on this pitch against really just one bowler. Not helped by some dodgy umpiring decisions.
