Glamorgan made it to the quarter-finals in 2014 and 2016 but had failed to progress further on both the occasions. Their most successful campaign came in the 2017 season when they made their maiden appearance in the semi-finals after having topped the South Group standings with seven wins and three losses. Glamorgan, however, could not qualify for the knockout round last time as they finished sixth in their group standings with seven wins and six defeats.
They ended up losing their last three group games – against Somerset, Sussex and Surrey. Colin Ingram (430 runs) scored the most runs for Glamorgan last year while Timm van der Gugten was their most successful bowler with 19 wickets.
