David Lloyd, the captain of Glamorgan, Lloyd, was born in North Wales. The strong middle-order batsman, entered the Glamorgan lineup via North Wales, which is unusual. He was long on the county’s radar and earned his second XI debut in 2008 at the age of just 16. The 30- year old made progress in 2015, the year in which, among regular hitters, he had the highest batting average for Glamorgan. He was named the county’s Young Player of the Year.

In his most recent match he scored the greatest first-class score by a Welshman ever to put his team in command against Derbyshire.

Records for Glamorgan and Lloyd continued dropping. Behind Sam Northeast’s 410 against Leicestershire earlier this season, this was the second-highest score by a Glamorgan player. It marked the first occasion two players from the same county had recorded quadruple and triple centuries in the same season.

Additionally, it was the Glamorgan captain’s highest score. He set the tone for his side by beginning the batting with a duck after deciding to insert Glamorgan.

He began the day with a double century, but he still had a lot of historical markers to pass. Early on, he lost his overnight partner Billy Root and Chris Cooke, but later on, he found a reliable partner in Andrew Salter.

First, the 30-year-old passed Captain Hugh Morris’ 233 score, who is currently the county’s chief executive. He was dropped by substitute Nafis Shaikh from a top-edged sweep, when on 258 off the bowling of Alex Thomson.

Lloyd made the decision to declare after he reached 313 not out, off 398 balls. He matched South African Jimmy Cook’s record for the highest individual score at Sophia Gardens.

Their unbeaten combination was worth 151 runs, and Lloyd also enjoyed double-century partnerships with both Root and Tom Bevan.
