Glamorgan look for crowd boost
The Glamorgan Dragons have called on the fans to fill Sophia Gardens to the rafters tonight for their floodlit Twenty20 Cup clash with defending champions Somerset Sabres.
Robert Croft's unbeaten side go head-to-head with a Somerset side which scored a world-record 250 in their opening division clash with Gloucestershire.
But, though Somerset will come to Cardiff armed with such big hitters as Aussie duo Justin Langer and Cameron White, Glamorgan will have gained some confidence after back-to-back wins over Worcestershire and Warwickshire.
And they have their own antipodean ball-smashers in the form of Brendon McCullum and James Franklin - the New Zealand duo - who have each scored 18-ball half-centuries in the opening two victories.
Captain Croft is hoping that the disappointing crowd that turned up at Sophia Gardens for the opening Twenty20 match on Tuesday will be swelled tonight following Glamorgan's early feats.
"We have had a difficult start to the season, but the feel-good factor could be back and we hope people come down and watch against Somerset," said Croft.
"If the public come along and shout us on, it will be like having an extra man on the pitch for us.
"It's been a disappointing 18 months or so, so it's nice to have a little bit of success like this and hopefully we can get on a roll."
Glamorgan are expected to field the same side that chased down totals of 164 and 171 against Worcestershire and Warwickshire.
