BY THE time you read this, hopefully we’ve managed to get ourselves another win in the four-day competition.

Going in to Tuesday, we were just over 100 runs ahead. We probably lost a few too many wickets on Monday night but if we ended our innings on Tuesday on 130 or 150, then I think we would be in a good position to get a result against Glamorgan.

Our performance in the first few days was pretty good and we’ve played some decent four-day cricket so far.

I played pretty nicely on the first day, like I have so far all season, and hopefully I took had an impact with the ball too. The new ball is really important on our wicket because it’s got a bit of zip about it and there’s a lot of variation.

We’ve spent a lot of time getting ready for the first T20 game of the summer on Friday night and hopefully we go into it with a bit of momentum.

Like I’ve said before, it’s the most exciting form of the game. We’re playing against Glamorgan again but we’re likely to be up against a different team because it’s a lot different to four-day cricket.

Hopefully we can start our campaign with a win. We’ve had a lot of success in previous years and we’ve won 17 out of 19 games at home in the last few seasons, which is a phenomenal record.

I think that we’ll be a slightly different team with no (Dimitri) Mascarenhas and no (Neil) MacKenzie but it’s up to other players to step up and win games for the team.

I’m hoping that I can help fill the gap left by MacKenzie and I like to think that I’ve learned a lot from him - he’s not the biggest hitter but he’s a clever batsman who knows how to get runs.
