Mark Wallace is happy to remain as Glamorgan captain but would understand if the county decided to appoint someone else.

Wallace, 32, has been skipper for three seasons at Glamorgan, who have endured another frustrating campaign in all competitions.

"If I'm comfortable to do it next season I'll certainly put my hand up," the Abergavenny-born player said.

"Whether the club want me to do it or not going forward is their decision."

Glamorgan's County Championship campaign ended with a home defeat by Hampshire, who secured the Division Two title with the 291-run win.

Wicketkeeper Wallace took 60 dismissals and made over 600 runs but failed to score a century this season.

He says he was disappointed with his batting performances but he does not feel the responsibility of being captain has affected his form.

"I've never found the weight of captaincy to be too much," Wallace said.

"It's something I've really enjoyed and it's a great honour to do it.

"But having said that I have done it for three years and if the club were to turn around and say 'we need to take a new direction and a fresh approach' I wouldn't be totally disappointed with that.

"It's about Glamorgan going out and performing well and if that's with me leading, then great.

"If it's with somebody else leading them then so be it. "
