Kiran Carlson brought further lustre to Glamorgan's youthful influx late in 2016 when he became the youngest player to score a first-class century for the county - at 18 years and 119 days - and delayed Essex's promotion party in the process. Carlson's previous best score in four innings had been 10, all adding to the unpredictability of a day that started late because Glamorgan's kit van was stuck in traffic on the A12.
Carlson's introduction to county cricket had begun with 5 for 28 on debut with his offspin on a dry Northampton pitch a couple of weeks earlier but his hundred, eclipsing that of Mike Llewellyn in 1972, was less of a surprise. Batting at No. 6, he produced several stylish drives and cuts. "It's great to have Welsh boys doing well," he said.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
