4 Things To Look Forward To At Glamorgan Cricket This Season

With the 2023 cricket season underway for Glamorgan Cricket, here are a fab four to look out for at Sophia Gardens over the coming months including an England International fixture, an array of overseas stars and the club’s first-ever T20 double-header.

14.05.22 – Western Storm v Central Sparks – Sophie Luff takes a catch.

1.      Three Friday Night Blast Matches

There are not one, not two but three Vitality Blast Friday night matches to enjoy this season! It’s high-octane stuff and there’s always a fantastic atmosphere at Sophia Gardens under the Friday Night Lights.

First up is Kent Spitfires on Friday, 2nd June, before Glamorgan face Essex Eagles a week later, and then welcome Sussex Sharks on 23rd June.

2. Overseas Superstars

Ahead of The Ashes, top-rated batter, Marnus Labuschagne, returns to Glamorgan alongside fellow Australian, Michael Neser, who is also in fine form.  They will team up with South African, Colin Ingram, who enjoyed arguably his best year for Glamorgan in 2022.

It’s actually quite selfish having all three players on the Cardiff county’s books at the same time but these prodigious talents will all be playing in 2023 for Glamorgan.

Combined with some exciting local talent, it’s set to be another exciting campaign.

3. England vs New Zealand One Day International

Don’t miss out on the reigning T20 and ODI World Cup holders England against New Zealand in a One Day International (ODI) in the centre of Cardiff when they play at Sophia Gardens on Friday, 8th September.

New Zealand are the number one ranked ODI team in the world, bristling with talent and led by generational cricketer Kane Williamson.  Meanwhile, England are ranked number two, so this is set to be a rollercoaster ride of a match!

4. T20 double-header

Glamorgan will play their first-ever T20 double-header at Sophia Gardens along with Western Storm in 2023.

The Welsh county’s Vitality Blast match against Surrey on Wednesday, 7th June will be preceded by Western Storm taking on Blaze in Cardiff.
