253 & 273
Glamorgan win by an innings and 24 runs
Glamorgan face Derbyshire in final home match of the season

Head coach Matt Maynard has named a 14-man squad for our final LV= County Championship home game of the season against Derbyshire at Sophia Gardens.

With two games remaining in the competition, the Welsh county sit in third place, 12 points behind Middlesex in second, while the visitors are just seven points behind in fourth.

A victory for Glamorgan will put pressure on Middlesex who travel to the Uptonsteel County Ground today to face Leicestershire in their penultimate match of the season.

There is one addition to the squad that was defeated by Middlesex last week with all-rounder Andrew Salter returning where he could form a spin partnership with overseas signing Ajaz Patel.

Head-to-head – Glamorgan vs Derbyshire

Derbyshire are currently in fourth place in the table, seven points behind Glamorgan and also holding hopes of promotion as the domestic season enters its penultimate week. The two teams met earlier in the season at Derby with the game ending in a draw after the Welsh county made a brave attempt at chasing 331 in 55 overs after Brooke Guest, the home keeper, made a century in each innings whilst Marnus Labuschagne came within 15 runs of emulating his achievement with the Australian departing during the helter-skelter chase on the final day.

Having played Glamorgan at Swansea in both 2018 and 2019, this will be Derbyshire’s first visit to Sophia Gardens for a Championship match since 2017. This had been a day-night contest as the game's authorities experimented with floodlights and pink balls in four-day cricket. The Peakites duly won by 39 runs as Glamorgan, chasing a target of 212 were dismissed for 172 as their batters struggles against the wily spin bowling of Sri Lanka’s Jeevan Mendis and teenage debutant Hamidullah Qadri, who took 5/60 on his first appearance in Championship cricket.

Glamorgan’s most recent Championship victory over Derbyshire at Cardiff came in 2014 as they won by 106 runs thanks to half-centuries by Chris Cooke and Graham Wagg, supported by some excellent seam bowling, with Michael Hogan taking 4/38 to set-up a comprehensive victory.
