The past few seasons have seen Kiran Carlson become the Club’s youngest-ever centurion, besides falling nine runs short of being the youngest batsman to score a double-hundred.

In 2016 Kiran made a dramatic and record-breaking start to his career as a professional cricketer. The eighteen year-old batsman-spinner from Cardiff made his first-class debut against Northamptonshire at Wantage Road and claimed 5/28 with his occasional off-breaks – the best-ever figures on debut by a spin bowler for the Welsh county.

A fortnight later at Chelmsford, Kiran then posted his maiden Championship hundred against Essex at Chelmsford. Not only did he become Glamorgan’s youngest-ever centurion in first-class cricket, his crisp and wristy strokeplay, allied to a level-headed approach to batting helped Glamorgan into a position from which they were able to secure a victory.

2017 saw Kiran feature in both red ball and white ball cricket for the Welsh, with his lively fielding creating a favourable impression in the short form of the game. In September 2017, after deferring a place to read Engineering at Cardiff University, Kiran scored a career-best 191 against Gloucestershire at The SSE SWALEC, with the right-handed batsman nearly becoming the Club’s youngster player to score a double hundred.

Kiran had a standout year in 2018, scoring a sensational 152 in a record stand of 289 for the fourth wicket with Usman Khawaja at Swansea. He had a breakthrough season in the T20 blast, scoring almost 300 runs, whilst making his highest score of 58 against Surrey at the Oval on TV.
