Glamorgan succumbed to an eight-wicket defeat at the hands of Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl yesterday.

Winning the toss and batting first the Welsh county could only muster 118/6 from their twenty overs with all-rounder Andrew Salter top scoring for Glamorgan, striking a career T20 best 37 not out from just 27 balls.

Hampshire captain James Vince then anchored the innings for the hosts as they eased to victory with over six overs to spare

“It is stating the obvious but it is disappointing for us,” said Salter. “We have good memories of winning here.

“We tried to replicate that and it didn’t come off.

“We didn’t take the women’s game into consideration, we thought it was a good wicket and we back our batting line up at the moment and we thought we would get a big score.

“I was happy with my last over, I got my eye in and hit it nicely.

“There were some tough overs before then and it is always hard when the bowlers are changing up their pace.

Glamorgan still sit top of the south group with a win against Somerset on Sunday almost assuring a place in the quarter-finals.

“Regardless of tonight (10 August) there is a good mood in the camp and the boys are in good form," added Salter. 

“Sometime you just have to park games like today and move on.”
