With three games left in the Specsavers County Championship and Glamorgan in the promotion push, Kraigg Brathwaite has squared his sights firmly on getting the team promoted.
The opening batsman has received a warm Welsh welcome since arriving at Sophia Gardens and has been itching to arrive in Cardiff since he first heard of a potential move.
“So far the hospitality has been very nice,” said Brathwaite. “I have had an indoor session and really enjoyed it so far.
“I am very excited, obviously Glamorgan is vying for first position, I am very happy to be here and I am looking to make an impact to assist as well as possible.
“During the Test series against India, my agent told me that Glamorgan were in contact, and I was hoping for the best. Thankfully we got it through, I’m excited to be getting a go and I’m very happy and looking forward to the experience. I’m looking forward to doing well for the team and hopefully help them into the First Division.”
Brathwaite has previous experience on the county cricket as well as on the international scene, and hopes that his experiences will benefit Glamorgan in their push for promotion.
“With Yorkshire and Nottingham, it was very nice, they took great care of me. The experience was good, learning to play in these conditions. I also played a Test series here in 2017, you learn a lot from playing. I remember a lot that went on and I want to use the experience to benefit the team with some good performances.
“Nothing beats Test experience, I have been in a lot of situations whether its batting or fielding, so obviously I want to bring as much experience as possible. I also want to provide as much as advice as I can, but my main thing is build a foundation for the team, as an opening batsman that’s my role, to make things easier for the guys to come.
“My main goal is to build a solid foundation for the team, once I can do that every innings, that’s the key for me. I am really looking forward to it, it’ll be tough sometimes with the weather, but it’s a great experience and hopefully helps me build a strong career.”
