Glamorgan v Surrey, T20, Cardiff, 26/06/15

It was a second, successive home T20 defeat for Glamorgan as a large Friday night, midsummer crowd were left disappointed with a limp batting display by the home side.

Failing to chase 147 in 20 overs is pretty unforgivable in modern cricket as the batsmen once again let them down. The Dragons now face a run of away games in the T20 Blast and will need to start winning again if they are to reach the quarter finals.

Glamorgan v Leicestershire, LVCC2, Cardiff, 22-25/06/15

Glamorgan recorded their fourth consecutive victory in Championship cricket for the first time since 2004 as they defeated Mark Cosgrove led Leicestershire by 137 runs in Cardiff.

In a topsy turvy match where batsmen failed to take advantage of summer conditions, a valuable top score of 94 by Graham Wagg proved vital as Leicestershire failed to chase down the (theoretical) highest total of the match.

Glamorgan v Sussex, T20, Cardiff, 21/06/15

Glamorgan turned in a bitterly disappointing Father's Day display as they were hammered by 10 wickets by south coast visitors Sussex. 

115 was never going to be enough off 20 overs as the Dragons' batsmen failed to fire, and the visitors knocked off the total with 46 balls to spare due to unbeaten half centuries from Chris Nash and former England player Luke Wright.
