16th June 18:30 Vitality Blast Sophia Gardens Cardiff
Kent Spitfires win by 40 runs
14-man squad named for next three Vitality Blast games

Head coach Matt Maynard has named an unchanged 14-man squad for Glamorgan’s next three Vitality Blast matches against Kent Spitfires (tomorrow), Middlesex (18th June) and local rivals Somerset (19th June).

The Welsh county currently sit in 4th place in the South Group following a win and two losses. Kent Spitfires are second to Surrey on three wins from three, and Middlesex bottom with two losses from two. Somerset are also bottom, without a win from their two games, with the group rankings likely to have changed dramatically by the end of the weekend after the early stages of the season are completed.

Monday night's defeat at group leaders Surrey saw Marnus Labuschagne record a third successive half-century in three innings for Glamorgan in the Vitality Blast, while Nick Selman got off to a flying start with 43 to follow up his 65 in the home victory against Essex on Sunday.

Marnus Labuschagne is currently the leading player in the tournament, according to the PCA MVP rankings, sitting on 94.08 points. Second place George Garton has 63.89, illustrating just how good the Australian batsman has been in his first three Blast games for Glamorgan.

The same 14 players named for the first three games of the campaign will line-up against South Group opponents Kent Spitfires and Middlesex at home on Wednesday and Friday, before taking on rivals Somerset, live on Sky Sports on Saturday night.

Ruaidhri Smith missed the game at The Oval as part of his workload management, after his recovery from injury, with no other injuries present within the squad.

“We’ve been delighted with how Nick Selman has done at the top of the order with David Lloyd. They have given us a lot of energy at the top and got us off to good starts.

“We lost the first home game, but it was a battling performance and a fantastic innings by Marnus nearly got us over the line. We then had a very good win over Essex and we’ve stuck with the same 14-man squad.

“Kent tomorrow are a strong side and going well so far and we follow that up with Middlesex on Friday, so it’s two very tough games and we know we’ll have to be at our best to get a result.”

Kent Spitfires squad to face Glamorgan:

D Bell-Drummond*, S Billings+, A Blake, J Cox+, Z Crawley, J Denly, N Gilchrist, F Klaassen, J Leaning, J Logan, M Milnes, Qais Ahmad, O Robinson+, D Stevens, G Stewart
