It was tough to lose that way - Carlson

Glamorgan suffered a one-run defeat at Taunton to Somerset, as the hosts successfully defended 180 in a thrilling Royal London Cup match.

Billy Root and Tom Cullen both made 37 after Michael Hogan's Glamorgan List A best of 4/33 helped control the early proceedings of a rain-affected game, and Kiran Carlson believes that the game was there for the taking for his side.

Glamorgan captain Kiran Carlson said: "It was tough to lose that way after coming so close. There were periods of the game when we fought well and others where we let them back in it.

"It was a fantastic game of cricket and another day it would have gone our way. Michael Hogan has been bowling that way for years now and if there is a bit in the pitch, he will exploit it.

"He put us in a great position, but they did well to recover and post a decent score on that wicket. We could have batted better - there is no getting away from that. Our middle order should have seen us home."
