Two matches into this year’s Vitality Blast and Glamorgan sit 3rd in the table after defeating Hampshire in their opening match before stumbling against Sussex Sharks on Sunday.

It was a case of contrasting performances from the Welsh county but despite a mixed bowling display against Sussex, Head Coach Robert Croft believes they still created enough opportunities in the match to be positive about. 

“I thought everything we touched turned to gold on Friday night but we weren’t clinical with the ball against Sussex,” said Croft.

“We were very clear on the plan we had for the pitch and the Sussex batsmen, however we weren’t able to execute the deliveries we wanted.

“There were still moments there where we could have got back into the game, but fair play to Luke Wright and Laurie Evans, they put together a terrific partnership which won the game for them.”

Glamorgan next face Essex Eagles at Chelmsford on Friday. The Welsh county will look to back up last year’s thrilling win at The CloudFM County Ground when they chased down 220 to win from the last ball of the match. 

“We’ve had some really good tussles with Essex over the years,” added Croft.

“We had a terrific performance there last year and hopefully we can turn it on again.

“This competition is full of highs and lows. We’ve experienced that over a couple of years and we’re a side that’s resilient to it right now. 

“We take learnings from every game we play and we’re working on what’s good and we’re trying to put right what hasn’t gone so well.”
