13-man squad named for Sky Sports clash vs Yorkshire

12 May 2021 | Cricket

Head Coach Matt Maynard has named a 13-man squad for the visit of Yorkshire to Sophia Gardens, with one change to the group that travelled to Manchester.

Marnus Labuschagne and Michael Neser will play together for the first time on Welsh soil, with the rested Michael Hogan returning to the squad that drew with Lancashire.

The rain was the dominant force at Old Trafford, with both sides only able to complete one innings as Glamorgan hit 344, thanks to fifties from David Lloyd, Callum Taylor, Dan Douthwaite, before Lancashire replied with 301/9 declared.

This week's round six matchup against Yorkshire will be televised live on Sky Sports Cricket, with more details available here.

Michael Hogan will rejoin his teammates after being rested for the Lancashire game, fresh off the back of 5/28 in the second innings against Kent in Glamorgan's previous home game, a 10-wicket victory inside two days at Sophia Gardens.

Glamorgan now sit fourth in Group 3, with a win, two draws and two losses from the first five games.

“It was a hell of a challenge facing the Lancashire bowling attack. It was a massive struggle for me batting at the start against them, but I started to flow toward the back end of my innings, so hopefully I can carry on where I left off against Yorkshire.

“It’s good to come across them again. We played well against them earlier this season. We know what they’re going to come with and the brand of cricket they play, and I think we’re in a good position to go out there and draw on what we did in the first few days at Headingley before the snow.

“Each season I think I come back things fall more and more in place. This season I’ve been happier with my batting from a consistency point of view. With my bowling I think I’ve been guilty of leaking runs, so I need to build that consistency there too.”

Injury Update

Jamie McIlroy is still injured with his broken rib, and Ruaidhri Smith likely to return to action during the T20 campaign, that starts on June 10th at home to Gloucestershire.

Head-To-Head - Glamorgan vs Yorkshire at Cardiff

"One of the features of the revised format to the County Championship is that several counties, who have not met for a number of years, play each other both at home and away this summer. This is the case with Glamorgan and Yorkshire who met for the first time since 2012 at the start of April, with the White Rose county now making their first visit to the Cardiff ground for a Championship match since August 1998."
