The bowling this evening has kept us in the game - Byrom

28 Jun 2022 | Cricket

Batter Eddie Byrom top-scored with 57 for Glamorgan but the Welsh county were bowled out for 139 on day two of their LV= County Championship clash against Worcestershire at New Road.

Byrom nearly carried his bat but was eventually last out, having faced 131 balls in only his second game as a red-ball opener for Glamorgan. In reply, Worcestershire reached 147/6 with an overall lead of 279 runs. 

“I think they are probably ahead of the game at the moment but I think we’ve done well today to keep ourselves in the game," said Byrom.

“The batting display there wasn’t our best but the bowling this evening has kept us in the game.

“Michael Neser is bowling phenomenally well and he was well backed up by the other bowlers. Hopefully tomorrow, more of the same, and then you never know.

“I had a bit of luck here and there. It was a tricky pitch and they bowled pretty well. There were a lot of good genuine dismissals in our line-up.

“I am delighted. I am still learning and trying to get better and become more consistent and happy with my performance today.

“I think there are still a few balls with your name on it out there so it is important we play positively and don’t just let the bowlers bowl at us.”
