Jacques Rudolph has been appointed Glamorgan captain for the 2015 season replacing Mark Wallace. The South African scored almost 2,000 runs in the first XI this year winning the club's List A player of the year award and broke the Glamorgan List A record with an unbeaten 169 against the Sussex Sharks.

He leads from the front and has shown throughout his career, and in his first season at Glamorgan, that he is a true professional and role model for younger players.

Mark Wallace has done a fine job as Club Captain during the course of the past three years, demonstrating tremendous dedication and commitment to the role and he will continue to be a valued and experienced voice in the dressing room and on the field within a leadership capacity.
