Glamorgan face Essex Eagles at Chelmsford tomorrow less than twenty-four hours after their match was abandoned against Somerset in Cardiff.
Colin Ingram, who scored Glamorgan’s fastest ever T20 century-from 46 balls against Sussex last Sunday and struck 39 from 21 balls against Somerset, is looking forward to the challenge, despite the congested fixture list.
“It’s not ideal, but the T20 Blast competition always has a hectic schedule, and we have to adapt to it,” said Ingram.
“Before the competition starts, you always feel a little edgy, but after that win at Arundel you felt the confidence beginning to kick in and we are all looking forward to the weekend.”
The South African has happy memories playing against Essex. He scored 142 against them in a thrilling one-run victory in the Royal London One-Day Cup earlier this year and struck a 55-ball hundred at Chelmsford last year in the NatWest Blast before heavy rain set in after the interval and the game was abandoned.
“I really enjoy playing there,” added Ingram. “The pitch is always good, and the partisan crowd get me going and I find it a good battle.
“It’s always a good contest and Essex will come hard at us, especially after losing their two opening games.”
Kiran Carlson misses out after suffering a knee injury, otherwise the same squad will travel which played in the opening three games against Hampshire, Sussex Sharks and Somerset.
