Surrey v Glamorgan – Preview

Glamorgan head to the Kia Oval tonight after a comprehensive seven-wicket win over Sussex Sharks in their Vitality Blast opener.

Head coach Matt Maynard has named an unchanged 14-man squad for the game against Surrey.

Joe Cooke, Michael Neser and Sam Northeast all made their T20 debuts for the Club at Hove with Northeast contributing to the win with an unbeaten 63 compound. Northeast surpassed 3,000 career T20 runs on the winning shot.

Seamer Michael Hogan played his first T20 game since 2019 last night and took 3/26 and in the process overtook Graham Wagg as Glamorgan’s 2n/a the format’s highest wicket-taker. He now sits just three wickets behind Dean Cosker who claimed 100 T20 wickets with Club.

Camp view – Sam Northeast

“It was a great start to the campaign, a great team effort against Sussex.

“It’s my first year in the Glamorgan team so I’m still learning, but it was such a fantastic team effort, we kept taking wickets throughout the effort. We know that tough challenges are coming, but it was a good start and hopefully we can sustain it.

“Surrey are a good team but I know we have a strong record there and if we play like we did last night we will be in the game.”
