Test Match. In need of an innings after his Covid Isolation scare, Marnus made sure he was going
to get some practice on a superb wicket at Spytty Park, Newport.

He celebrated his return to action after self-isolating by scoring 276 from 268 with 32 fours and 4 sixes 
for Glamaorgan 2nd XI in their Second Eleven Championship match against Northamptonshire 2nd XI
at Spytty Park in Newport.

His magnificent double-century was the highest-ever score for the Welsh county in the competition 
surpassing the previous best of 267 by Ian Thomas against Somerset at North Perrott in 2003.

240 by Aneurin Donald in the match with Gloucestershire at Panteg in 2015.
