Kiran joined Hampton for the 2016/2017 season.
Easily our best credentialled import, Kiran scored 413 runs at an average of 37 with top scores of 91 against Bonbeach and 93 against Murrumbeena. In addition, Kiran took 15 wickets with his offies.
An explosive right-hand batsman with a strong, wristy game, Kiran became the youngest ever English County player to score a first-class century and take a 5-wicket haul (5/28) in a single game. This was only a few months before he joined us at Hampton.
Kiran had a standout County Championship year in 2018, scoring a sensational 152 in a record stand of 289 for the fourth wicket with Usman Khawaja at Swansea. He also had a breakthrough season in the T20 blast, scoring almost 300 runs, whilst making his highest score of 58 against Surrey at the Oval in a nationally televised game.
In 2021 Kiran was named Glamorgan’s player of the year after leading them to the Royal London One-Day Cup in their first ever limited-overs final win. Kiran was also their top run scorer in the four-day Championship. Glamorgan coach Matthew Maynard believes Carlson could challenge for England Lions selection if he continues his improvements.
This season Kiran is vice-captain of Glamorgan in County Championship and T-20 Blast and captain in the one-day cup games.
In 58 first class games for Glamorgan Kiran has scored 2876 runs with 7 centuries, 12 fifties and a high score of 191. He scored twin tons against Sussex in 2021.
This year he is playing alongside Aussies Michael Neser, Michael Hogan and Marnus Labuschagne and previously with Usman Kuwaja, Joe Burns and Shaun Marsh. Runs were a bit harder to find this season in County cricket with Kiran making 490 runs at 24 with a top score of 91 and three fifties.
Kiran has deferred his engineering degree and is currently completing a business degree at Cardiff University. He remains a Glamorgan contracted player.
