Two of the five fastest first-class double centuries involve Glamorgan

Aneurin Donald's effort in Colwyn Bay yesterday will have to be added to this table.
Fastest 200s - in minutes
RJ Shastri (200*)113Bombay v BarodaBombay1984-85
GL Jessop (286)120Gloucesterhire v SussexHove1903
CH Lloyd (201*)120West Indies v GlamorganSwansea1976
GL Jessop (234)130Gloucestershire v SomersetBristol1905
VL Trumper (293)131Australians v CanterburyChristchurch1913-14
I am glad to say that I was there when Clive Lloyd equalled the then record - and would have beaten it if he had not refreshed himself with a glass of water part way through.
