I wonder how the expected 2 overseas players for 2021 will work for Glamorgan. Will Ingram or de Lange need to take one of the slots, leaving the other to be considered "British"? Maybe de Lange already holds a British passport?

I hope Hogan gets another year as it was meant to be his benefit this year and would be very unfortunate if he did not get the ’recognition’ he deserves. Wagg may be vulnerable, deLange (I’m told) is very expensive and the performances of the younger element will need careful consideration. Players may have to agree to reduced contracts as a smaller squad is inevitable, I think.If the aim is for Hogan to get a benefit year then he will stay but canbnot keep him and Wagg. It's not a retirement home

I think I'm right in saying that Glamorgan have had bigger squads than most counties in recent years. Difficult to imagine they'll be in a position to run with such a big squad from 2021... makes you wonder how many of those out of contract will get a new one. Half maybe?
