Glamorgan need to be clinical against Hants - Toby Radford

Glamorgan coach Toby Radford says his team need to be more deadly in Twenty20 cricket.

The Welsh county face Hampshire at home in the T20 Blast on Wednesday in Cardiff and are aiming to bounce back after defeat in their last match in the competition against Surrey.

Glamorgan have slipped to fourth in the South Group, but Radford is confident they can still make the quarter finals.

"What's crucial for us is that we stay absolutely clinical," said Radford.

"We ended up drawing with Kent a couple of weeks ago in a game we probably could have won and we got a great score of 190 odd in Chelmsford against Essex and didn't defend it.

"We are generally playing well in every game, we just need to be really clinical at the time where it matters.

"Because T20 cricket changed quickly. You can be well ahead and two bad overs and it swings the other way.

"So you've got to switch on for the whole of your 20 overs."

Hampshire, who Glamorgan defeated in the opening match of the competition, are second in the group.

Radford said he is well aware of the threat they pose and his players are keen to get a win following the defeat against Surrey.

"We know they're a very strong side," said Radford.

"We had a bit of a blip last week against Surrey on our own turf and we want to put that right.

"I know the boys were disappointed with that performance having gone so well in the competition, but we are still fourth and very much in it."
