Glamorgan v Middlesex: Match Preview

over 6 years ago | Uncategorised
Middlesex travel to Cardiff on Friday night on the back of a disappointing defeat at the hands of Hampshire tonight at the Ageas Bowl, going down by a margin of 19 runs. 

Middlesex's recent explosive charge in the T20 Blast had the brakes applied to it in Southampton, as the depth of the Hampshire batting line up proved too much for a weakened Seaxes' bowling attack to handle, with Kyle Abbott missing in Southampton, due to commitments with Cricket South Africa. 

Whilst momentum may have stalled, confidence will be given a welcome boost by the immediate return of Abbott in Cardiff, who will add both pace and penetration to the front and back end of the Seaxes' attack. 

Middlesex will also be hoping for big performances from England internationals Steven Finn and Eoin Morgan, before they depart on international duties for England against New Zealand. 

Glamorgan themselves got off to an absolute flyer in the competition, smashing the Surrey bowling attack for 240 at the Oval in their opening fixture, although momentum has since also slipped away for the Cardiff based outfit, with them unable to secure another victory since, tasting defeat at the hands of both Essex and Hampshire.

Whilst Middlesex head to Wales intent on re-establishing the form that has seen them take up residence towards the top of the Southern Group table, Glamorgan will be keen to get back to winning ways and pull away from the foot of the table, with only Essex sat below them.
Middlesex CCC is pleased to announce the following 15-man squad to play against Glamorgan tomorrow night: Eoin Morgan (captain), Kyle Abbott, Joe Burns, Nick Compton, Neil Dexter, Steven Finn, James Franklin, Nick Gubbins, James Harris, Dawid Malan, Harry Podmore, Ollie Rayner, Toby Roland-Jones, John Simpson, Nathan Sowter.

We would strongly advise any Middlesex supporters, who are planning on travelling to Cardiff to watch the NatWest T20 Blast game against Glamorgan on Friday 5th June, to allow themselves additional time to get to the match.  

Glamorgan County Cricket Club have advised us that One Direction are playing a music concert at the Millennium Stadium and the Manic Street Preachers are performing at Cardiff Castle on the same evening. Whilst both concerts are starting later than the start time of the T20 Blast match, which kicks off at 6.30pm, it is anticipated that all roads leading into Cardiff City Centre are likely to be more congested than normal with the additional traffic.  

Tickets are still available for all Middlesex supporters wishing to cheer on the lads down at the SWALEC Stadium on Friday, which can be ordered online at https://tickets.glamorgancricket.com
