The second day of Glamorgan's match with Sussex at Colwyn Bay saw another host of records tumble as the Welsh county declared on 718-3 - the 11th highest total in County Championship history, and the best in the club`s history.

HIGHEST GLAMORGAN TOTALS IN FIRST-CLASS CRICKET

718-3d  v Sussex               at Colwyn Bay, 2000
648-4d  v Nottinghamshire      at Colwyn Bay, 1999
597-8d  v Durham               at Sophia Gardens, 1997
587-8d  v Derbyshire           at Cardiff Arms Park, 1951

Steve James also created a new club record with 309* - the highest ever individual innings in the club's history, and the highest score so far of the 2000 season.

James' 10 hour innings contained a record 41 boundaries - the most in an innings by a Glamorgan batsman. Last year, James made 259* at the ground against Nottinghamshire, so his record breaking triple hundred takes him to an aggregate of 568 runs in over 22 hours at the crease at the Rhos ground.

James' 10 hour innings contained a record 41 boundaries - the most in an innings by a Glamorgan batsman, passing the previous best of 39 by Dick Duckfield at The Oval in 1936. Last year, James made 259* at the ground against Nottinghamshire, so his record breaking triple hundred takes him to an aggregate of 568 runs in over 22 hours at the crease at the Rhos ground.

James has now scored 5 double centuries for Glamorgan - again a new club record and he needs a further 22 runs to pass the thousand run mark for the season.
