The T20 season has not been good enough - Maynard

18 Jul 2021 | Cricket

Glamorgan suffered a heavy defeat at The Ageas Bowl, as Hampshire chased down Glamorgan's 184 in just 13 overs, as they needed to win inside 14 overs to have any chance of qualifying for the Vitality Blast quarter-finals.

The Welsh county ended the campaign bottom of the South group, and Head Coach Matt Maynard admitted he was 'bitterly disappointed' at how Glamorgan's T20 season has gone, in contrast to the side's red-ball form that saw them finish third in a tough Group 3.

“We’ve tried to make up for shortfalls this year by batting our two best batsmen out of position, Marnus and Lloydy have batted at four, and we should have stuck with our convictions.

“We lost a lot of confidence in the middle of the competition when Marnus was isolating, from a batting and bowling perspective.

“The season has not been good enough, the side is better than that on paper, and guys need to get clearer on their game-plans and execution. We’ve missed Colin (Ingram’s form), he’s a fine white-ball player but he hasn’t found his gears, and we know he’ll come back stronger.

“I’m bitterly disappointed in the campaign, some of the players haven’t been as consistent as they can be, and disappointed for our fans.”
