The difference between CC1 and CC2 is this:

There are bowlers, in both divisions, fully capable of good balls or even good spells.

But, as a rule, CC2 bowling units don't hunt as a pack and apply consistent pressure.

CC2 batting line-ups, therefore, simply don't see concerted pressure like this and are, thus, ill-equipped to deal with it.

In the case of Glamorgan, they are further hampered by the most turgid home tracks in the competition... a track that has some pace and bounce, such as ours, is also largely foreign to them.
