STAT ATTACK - Salter is in seventh heaven!

10 Apr 2022 | Cricket

By completing a career-best 7-45 against Durham at Cardiff, Andrew Salter returned the best bowling figures by a spin bowler for Glamorgan for thirty years, with his analysis being the best since 1992 when Robert Croft claimed 8-66 against Warwickshire at Swansea. (writes Andrew Hignell)

Andrew’s figures were also the best for the Welsh county in first-class cricket since Timm van Gugten claimed 7-42 at the same ground against Kent in 2018, and the best by a homegrown bowler since David Harrison also claimed 7-45 against Worcestershire at New Road in 2010.

His spell included a sequence of 6-22 in 27 balls and when he bowled Matthew Potts it was Andrew’s 100th first-class wicket for the Welsh county.
