One change to squad for Derbyshire clash

29 Jul 2021 | Cricket

Head coach David Harrison has named a 13-man squad for Glamorgan’s Royal London Cup match against Derbyshire at The Incora County Ground tomorrow.

There is one change to the squad that very narrowly lost to Somerset at Taunton yesterday with all-rounder Sam Pearce returning from Wales National County duty to replace Callum Taylor who is ruled out after picking up an ankle injury in the defeat.

After three matches in the competition, Glamorgan have won two and lost one and sit in 2nd place in Group 1, while Derbyshire have failed to register a win from their opening three matches and are bottom of the group.

"We have a good group of players and a mix of experience and younger guys - we all know what we’re trying to do.

"Even yesterday when we didn’t perform to our best, we almost came away with a win at Somerset which doesn’t happen very often. It’s how we bounce back from a narrow loss now – that’s the test of a good team. I’m very excited to see how we do that in the next few games.  

"Every team is going to be a mix of accomplished county cricketers and new faces like us. The challenge is to go into every game with a fresh mind and play what happens on the day.

"We haven’t played at Derby yet this season, but they’ve been a very dangerous team for a long time now and we’re going to have to go there with a fresh mind and stick to our processes. Hopefully, we can come away with a win."
