Glamorgan Head Coach Robert Croft has named a 15-man squad for the Welsh county’s quarter-final clash with Yorkshire Vikings tomorrow (Thursday) at 7pm.
The squad includes the Welsh county’s top run-scorer Colin Ingram, who is also the competition’s top six-hitter with 29 maxiumums in the campaign so far. Ingram hasn’t featured in red-ball cricket for Glamorgan but has become a lynchpin of Croft’s T20 outfit.
Ingram is joined by the returning trio of Michael Hogan, Graham Wagg and Craig Meschede, who were all rested during last week’s County Championship defeat to Northamptonshire at Swansea.
Dean Cosker is also back in the squad, while Chris Cooke (back injury) and Ruaidhri Smith (side strain) are absentees due to injury.
A Glamorgan victory would ensure a first appearance at T20 Finals Day since 2004, with the formidable Yorkshire Vikings standing in the Welsh county’s way.
South African big-hitter Ingram is excited about the prospect of knockout cricket at The SSE SWALEC tomorrow night, with a big Welsh crowd expected in Cardiff.
Ingram: “It’s obviously a massive massive game for us and it’ll be great to be in front of our home crowd. It’s an exciting occasion and I’m really looking forward to it.
“Hopefully we can put on a great display for the fans and keep them singing long into the night. We’ve been pretty consistent throughout the season so if we keep it simple that should stand us in great stead to take on Yorkshire.”
Glamorgan 15-man squad: Jacques Rudolph (capt.), Mark Wallace, David Lloyd, Colin Ingram, Aneurin Donald, Will Bragg, Graham Wagg, Craig Meschede, Nick Selman, Andrew Salter, Dean Cosker, Timm van der Gugten, Shaun Tait, Owen Morgan, Michael Hogan.
