Head Coach Robert Croft has added Tom Cullen to his squad for today's opening home Vitality Blast fixture against Sussex Sharks at Sophia Gardens.

The Welsh county comprehensively defeated Hampshire on Friday night at the Ageas Bowl by a record 63 runs to kick-start their T20 campaign. 

They now face a Sussex Sharks team who also enjoyed an excellent start to the Vitality Blast when they defeated Essex Eagles by 36 runs. 

Glamorgan will however be full of confidence when they take on the Sharks after posting 168 against Hampshire, which saw a number of strong batting performances, led by north walian David Lloyd who top scored with an unbeaten 38 off 26 balls.

They then reduced the home side to 32/7, with all-rounder Andrew Salter claiming three wickets. Salter opened the bowlng for Glamorgan and despite being hit for six first ball, took two wickets in the over to set the tone for the innings. 

"It was a great win for us against Hampshire," said Salter.

"It was good to open the bowling in tricky circumstances after getting hit first ball for six, but it was a great team effort with the bat, ball and in the field and a great way to start to competition.

"Hopefully we can now back that up against a strong Sussex Sharks team."
