Somerset win by 16 runs
Glamorgan face rivals Somerset in

Head coach Matt Maynard has once again named an unchanged 14-man squad for our final home match in the Vitality Blast group stages against local rivals Somerset tomorrow (24 June). 

Following back-to-back victories at Sophia Gardens, the Welsh county now sit in 5th spot in the South Group table on ten points and are hunting a place in the knockout stages with three games remaining. 

The visitors meanwhile are still in 2nd place despite their narrow defeat to Surrey earlier this week. 

Glamorgan will be hoping to replicate their form from Tuesday night where they comfortably defeated Middlesex in front of a raucous crowd which included over 2,000 school children. 

Batters David Lloyd and Sam Northeast put on a show for the kids at the home of Welsh cricket, with an opening stand of 150 and in the process broke the Club record for the highest partnership in T20 cricket. 

After taking 3/28 in the game, seamer Michael Hogan now has 19 wickets from just nine matches and sits in 2nd place in the wicket-taking charts in the competition this year. It is also set to be the final time the ageless wonder will don the 'Daff' at home in the Vitality Blast.

View from the camp – David Lloyd 

I thought when were back at their place they played extremely well. They showed us how we should go about a run chase. We did that against Sussex and we took confidence from watching them.  

That is how we have to play the next three games, without fear. We have nothing to lose as we have to go out and win. Its exciting times and hopefully we can go again tomorrow night and get that win. 

We have found a formula now. Hoges, Ness and Dan plus the two spinners in Prem and Salts have bowled extremely well all comp which is a huge credit to them. We have had that formula for a while. 

The batting has had a lot of depth, but we hadn’t really put in one complete performance until Tuesday night. And we intend to do the same thing for our final home game in the last.
