Nannes forces Glamorgan rethink

Glamorgan have been dealt a blow ahead of their Friends Life t20 campaign with Dirk Nannes’ proposed move cancelled after the Australian suffered a stress fracture in his back.

The 36-year-old, pictured, sustained the injury while playing in the Indian Premier League for Chennai Super Kings and will now miss out on a spell in Wales.

Glamorgan's head of elite performance Matthew Mott said: “We were disappointed to hear that Dirk will not be able to join us this season; he is a quality bowler and would have been a valuable addition to our squad.

“We are now considering different replacement options and have already spoken to a number of players.”

Glamorgan have also announced that former Somerset director of cricket Brian Rose will continue to assist the club in a consultancy role.

Rose has been conducting a review into Welsh cricket, the findings of which he has reported, and will now be on hand to help Glamorgan with cricketing matters for the remainder of the season.

Mott added: “I welcome the committee's decision to retain Brian's services until the end of the season.

“His extensive experience will be of significant benefit to both Glamorgan and Welsh cricket and, from a personal perspective, I look forward to myself and the rest of the coaching team exchanging ideas with such an experienced consultant.”
