Glamorgan: Graham Wagg delighted with T20 career best

Graham Wagg

Graham Wagg was delighted with a Twenty20 career-best 5-14 helped Glamorgan secure an opening win at Worcestershire on Friday.

Wagg produced Glamorgan's best bowling figures in the T20 competition in the rain-affected match.

Glamorgan eased to a 58-run victory under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

"I've struggled for wickets this year but this competition has come at a great time for me on a personal level," Wagg said.

"On the day it was my day and the next game could be someone else's."

Wagg took the wickets of Moeen Ali, Thilan Samaraweera and Gareth Andrew in the space of four balls, and also claimed victims Ben Cox and Shaaiq Choudhry.

"Apart from that, the boys put the runs on the board," said Wagg of Glamorgan's innings.

"We got off to an absolute flier [but we were] interrupted by rain so we had to go back out and start again.

"And it was fantastic - we just carried that momentum on into the field."

Glamorgan made a bright start with Chris Cooke smacking 57 off 27 balls, as the visitors made light of a rain break to run up 159-4 from their 14 overs.

And Wagg hopes Glamorgan can build on their opening victory at New Road when they host his former club Warwickshire at the Swalec Stadium on Wednesday.

"If we do our stuff and our basics well, which we did in [the Worcestershire] game, I don't see any reason how any team can stop us," Wagg added.

"There are going to be talks already about Glamorgan in one-day cricket [but] it's the first game.

"We'll prepare again exactly how we did for Worcester for Warwickshire."
