Within a blink of an eye, the season has come and gone.

It was a disappointing summer for Glamorgan as we didn’t achieve our goals that we set out pre-season and ended up parting company with coach Robert Croft, but nonetheless, there have also been good performances along the way.

A ray of sunlight (during the season) came in the T20 Blast campaign when we won five games in a row which included ‘my favourite’ win of the season against Surrey.

Being underdogs, there’s nothing better than playing in front of a large crowd at the Oval and then coming away with bragging rights. To be missing Colin for that game was always going to be a big blow but it handed the likes of Kiran and Waggy a chance to send some into the crowd. We managed to chase down 194 with an over to spare. It was definitely a game to remember as I was able to hit the winning runs as the ball trickled down to deep square leg.

My personal highlight of the season came against Warwickshire at Edgbaston in the county championship where my bowling game figures ended 6-145 off 56 overs.

It was a highlight for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the rough Keith Barker creates for off spinners meant I was always going to be in the game, and with that came a different pressure. Most pitches we’d previously played on hadn’t been (most) conducive to spin bowling so it was exciting to get in for a longer spell.

I was also playing against Jeetan Petal who had been my mentor and off spinning guru during my time in Wellington, New Zealand. So it goes without saying I wanted to show him what I’d learnt over the winter months. We ended up getting each other out which wasn’t part of the plan, but cricket isn’t always the most predictable sport.

This winter:

I’ve been very fortunate to have been offered an opportunity by the ECB to spend more time with Jeetan in New Zealand.

He’s been great to work with and I’m really looking forward to hopefully taking my game to the next level. It’s been a season full of learning curves and I’m excited for the season ahead in Wellington.

It’s a beautiful part of the world, where you’re graced with surreal scenery, welcoming locals and ‘edgy’ coffee shops. Not to exclude the Basin Reserve, one of my favourite cricket grounds, where I’ll be spending most of my winter (summer) training.

I’d like to say a massive thank you to family, friends and fans who have supported me throughout the season. I’m more motivated than ever to put some match winning performances together for the next campaign and everyone at Glamorgan will be striving hard to make improvements.

Māuruuru (‘thanks’ in Maori).
