Glamorgan have received the much needed boost ahead of their Natwest T20 Blast quarter-final against Leicestershire with South Africa batsman David Miller joining the squad.

Miller, who scored 117 runs from four matches at an average of 58.50 for the club earlier in the season was chosen to represent South Africa A during the two match unofficial Test series against India A but now has joined the camp at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Wednesday morning.

This is the second time in consecutive years that Glamorgan have acquired a home quarter-final and during the last season, they suffered a defeat to Yorkshire.

However, skipper Jacques Rudolph is confident that his side will overcome the challenge this time around.

“It’s obviously a massive game for us and I think the disappointment of last year against Yorkshire will give us quite a lot of inspiration to make it right this year,” said Rudolph.

“I think there are lessons to learn from last year. I did feel we were a little bit subdued in our team as a collective but if there’s good energy and purpose to what we do we stand a good chance of winning.”

“They are a very dangerous team. They have quite a few X-factor players with experience in Clint McKay and Mark Cosgrove but the one thing we’ve done well this year is not focus too much on the opposition.”

Glamorgan squad to face Leicestershire:

Rudolph (captain), Carey, Carlson, Cooke, De Lange, Donald, Hogan, Ingram, Meschede, Miller, Morgan, Salter, Selman, Wagg
