Oli Carter smashed his previous high score of 72, making an outstanding 185 on the day 2 of the County Championship match against Glamorgan.
Support from Henry Crocombe and on-loan signing Jack Brooks helped Sussex to a total of 376 all out, but Glamorgan fought back to close the day on 258/1.
Sussex had a dream start with the ball, as Sean Hunt dismissed David Lloyd with just the eighth ball of the innings, however Glamorgan’s Ingram and Byrom batted for the remainder of the day, putting on a huge second wicket stand of 253.
The pitch appeared to give little help to any of the bowlers on day 2, and it wasn’t only Oli Carter who cashed in. Both Ingram and Byrom made centuries to frustrate the Sussex bowling attack and swing the momentum back in favour of the home side for now.
Sussex will need to regroup overnight and hope they can break up Ingram and Byrom’s partnership tomorrow morning, before taking aim at the remaining wickets.
Glamorgan trail by 118 in the first innings heading into the third day.
