Glamorgan coach Matthew Mott says the side had to do 'a lot of soul-searching' ahead of the coming season after a disappointing result last year.
The Welsh county won just three games out of 16 in the County Championship Division Two, despite high hopes for success in all three competitions.
Since then some new faces have joined the squad, including Zimbabwean batsman Murray Goodwin and Australian bowler Michael Hogan, whose experience Mott hopes will help Glamorgan to success.
He told our sports reporter Nick Hartley: "We've done enough training, skill work and fitness work. We're as well prepared as we could hope - the rest is up to the boys on the field."
