The Glamorgan opener, Dan Cherry, is to be released by the club at the end of the current season. Cherry, 27, made his debut in 1998 and hit the headlines with a score of 226 against Middlesex in 2005, the highest score by an uncapped player in the club's history.

However, he fell away after that and managed a total of just three centuries in 40 matches, at an average of 26.05. "It's always disappointing when a decision is made not to renew a player's contract," said Glamorgan's chief executive Mike Fatkin. "Dan has always been a loyal, wholehearted, hard-working cricketer."

The decision will have been influenced, at least in part, by the crop of young cricketers coming through the ranks at Sophia Gardens, and two of them - the Under-19 stars Ben Wright and James Harris - have been made available to Glamorgan for the remainder of the season.

After their outstanding performances with bat and ball in the two Tests against Pakistan, both were initially included for the five-match one-day international series. But Glamorgan has since suffered a spate of , and asked the England & Wales Cricket Board to release the players for county action.

"We're particularly delighted that the ECB has released James and grateful that they have taken on board our concerns about the number of injuries to the seam bowlers on the staff," said Fatkin. "David and Adam Harrison have long-term injury problems to add to those sustained more recently by Andrew Davies, Simon Jones and Huw Waters."
