Zander de Bruyn completed his first century for Surrey as they ground their way to 286-4 on the opening day of their clash with Glamorgan in Cardiff.

The winter signing from Somerset hit two sixes and 16 fours as he ended the day 109 not out.

He received support from Steven Davies (45), before sharing an unbroken 122 with Tom Maynard, who finished 60 not out against his former club.

Dean Cosker (2-67) was Glamorgan's most successful bowler as the hosts toiled.

DAY ONE REACTION

BBC Radio Wales' Edward Bevan: "Much of the attention was centred around Tom Maynard making his first appearance here since leaving Glamorgan last winter.

"He was nearly out first ball but then settled and would've been pleased, as would his watching family, to reach 60 not-out at the close.

"Maynard has put on 122 with Zander de Bruyn who anchored the Surrey innings with a patient knock of 109 not-out although he was dropped on 40.

"Glamorgan's bowlers did well to restrict the visitors to just under three runs an over, but they'll be confident of a total in excess of 400."
