Mark Wallace: win over Kent puts down Glamorgan marker

Mark Wallace believes Glamorgan have made the rest of the LV County Championship Division Two sit up and take notice after their dramatic dismantling of Kent by an innings and eight runs inside three days.

The victory was made all the more dramatic as it was Glamorgan’s first victory over Kent in Cardiff since 1967.

Wallace laid the foundations for the win by becoming the first Glamorgan Championship centurion of the summer.

“It was a big achievement because Kent are a big club who have come down from Division One,” said the Glamorgan wicketkeeper.

“I know they have had a few injuries, but they have still got a lot of international class throughout their ranks. To beat a side like that is a huge thing for us.

“We have been on the wrong side of defeats to them in the past, so to get a big scalp like them this early in the season will hopefully catapult us on.”

Wallace scored his 10th first-class century and in the process passed 7,000 first-class runs for Glamorgan.

“It is good to get a hundred. I am very happy it was me getting there in the end. People do like to see hundreds on the board. I am very happy with my form although I have had a few low scores as well this season which is not great.

“But there are going to be plenty more hundreds from this team. We have had some batsmen in form this season without them actually getting to three figures.”
