Glamorgan cricket: Live T20 Q&A with former England spin star Robert Croft

Here are the highlights of the QA

Q: What are your thoughts on a Wales cricket team for the T20 World Cup and international one day competitions? by Peter Howells

A: The thought of a Wales cricket team excites a lot of people. However it would create major problems for Glamorgan going forward.

 

Q: Who do you think are the favourites for the T20 this year? by The Bear

A: Glamorgan

 

Q: The T20 finals day is at Edgbaston this year, the same as it was when GLamorgan were last there. 1) What are your memories of that day 2) Could it be an omen? by Shortleg

A: Hope it’s an omen. There was great travelling support that day. Unfortunately we didn’t back it up with performance.

 

Q: Whose wicket gave you the greatest pleasure in your career? by Pontyboy

A: Aamir Sohail. First Test wicket. Oval 1996

 

Q: What is it with Sky boys liken Mike Atherton, Nasser Hussain andNick Knight? Do you think there is an agenda against Cardiff and Glamorgan? by Pontyboy

A: No. They are three very opinionated people.

 

Q: Think back to 1997. Can you tell us the story behind your spat with Mark Ilott in the NW Semi #whatagame by BringHomeTheBaccon

A: The reason why it happened was it was dark, they had been in the ascendency but now we were fighting back. They then decided they wanted to go off to which I had major issues as our momentum would have been stopped. I simply asked Mark why do you want to go off? To which he replied It’s dark, I can’t see. I then asked him what’s that up there? He replied the moon. I said how far do you want to see then? The rest is history.

 

Q: What is your prediction for the Ashes? by Mike Matthews

A: England to win 3-1

 

Q: Rob, what advice would you give to a young off spinner trying to hone his/her technique? by Drifter

A: Spin the ball as hard as possible.

 

Q: Waggy said on TV last night that he’d spoken to you about bowling spin on that pitch. His slow bouncers seemed to be working well. But are you worried the other teams in the group will be expecting that next time? by Danny Davies

A: Not worried at all. He’s a good enough player to adapt to the conditions on the day.

 

Q: Rob, I would quite like to see the Aussies come and give us a game this summer. I’m fed up of battering them now. Do you ever tire of that? by Jimbo

A: No. I never got a chance to batter them. They were a decent team in my day. I played 7 Tests against the Aussies and was in a winning team once. You do the math
