Glamorgan will compete at T20 Finals Day for the just the second time in their history after thrashing three-time winners Leicestershire Foxes by nine wickets in their quarter-final in Cardiff.

Man of the match Colin Ingram told BBC Wales Sport: "They got off to a pretty quick start and for the bowlers to respond the way they did to attack them and get those wickets, was what set up the win".

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.

Captain Jacques Rudolph who plays his final home NatWest T20 Blast for Glamorgan after announcing his retirement from the game at the end of the season believes his side are more than capable of defeating Leicestershire to reach Finals Day at Edgbaston. There's been a great attitude at training, the guys have been meticulous the way they've gone about their business so I really believe if we rock up tomorrow with the right attitude we can have a good day.

"We let a lot of people down when we got to the quarter-finals this time a year ago [against Yorkshire] and didn't turn up, but this time we played a great game of cricket". A year ago the Welsh County suffered a disappointing loss to Yorkshire Vikings in front of a record crowd, but Rudolph is confident his side will learn from past mistakes.

"I think there are lessons to learn from past year".

"They are a very risky team".

With four home group stage matches abandoned due to the weather, Rudolph is hoping a large home crowd will be on hand to help cheer his boys to victory.
