Glamorgan, Director of Cricket Mark Wallace said: “We have been tracking Chris for a while and now that his World Cup campaign is over with Scotland it’s great to be able to bring him in to add some pace to our attack and bolster our seam bowling resources in Vitality Blast.”

Glamorgan Head Coach, Grant Bradburn added:  “To be able to add Chris Sole’s high quality skills, experience and character into our squad, brings an exciting vibe to our team, as we look forward to playing at The Oval tonight.

“Having worked with Chris previously in Scotland, we know the high value he will bring and I’m sure he will thrive in our environment.”
