“It’s an opportunity for players and coaches to exchange different ideas which is so important, particularly at this stage in the side’s development.

Croft, 45, played 50 ODIs during a five-year international career that ended in 2001 and was a key figure in Glamorgan’s limited overs success during his 23 years playing for the club.
