Shame Carlson could not get to what would have been a well-deserved century but he has helped balance up the bragging rights.

There was no way Yorkshire were going to allow him enough time to get his century. That's not who they are.

Excellent knock by the young man though.

Could have carried on. Not up to Yorkshire. Was enough time.

Not exactly sure what the rules are, but if Glam had a say, would they really have walked off, thereby denying one of their own the chance of making a century on his birthday ?

Clearly they did. Both captains have to agree. Otherwise if one team needed one run to win do you think the other captain could end the game?

As previosly stated, am not sure of the rule. Is this a stated rule, or something dreamt up by the various teams. Also, how many overs need to be left to trigger such an agreement ?

12.2.5.4 If, however, both captains (the batsmen at the wicket may act for their captain) accept that there is no prospect of either side achieving a victory, they may agree to finish the match at any time after the scheduled time for the commencement of the last hour has been reached (regardless of the number of overs remaining to be bowled).

Fair enough. Allowed to be a bit biassed. Would just be nice to see the Wales bit of the England and Wales Cricket Board represented. Carlson must have caught the attention of Root.

Delighted to see Carlson doing well whilst finishing his studies - very demanding. I remember a friend telling me some years ago, when Donald was being lauded, that he felt Carlson was a much better prospect with a better temperament. Now, sadly, Donald seems to have a long-term injury. Also, Wallace himself, went straight from A levels to a cricket career playing for the first time at the age of 17 but completed BA, MA and Level 4 coaching in his mid 20s. With the stresses and strains of the game and possibility of injuries finishing a career, it’s good that the PCA do so much for qualifications outside the game. Enjoyed the Sky commentary especially the discussion re the greatest Glamorgan team and the Welsh commentary. Like Bumble, he’s always had a soft spot for Wales and with Crofty is very entertaining.

Agree. Would always tell any aspiring sportsman not to ignore their studies as you are a long time retired, even if you reach the professional level. Cricket better than other sports at supporting that.
