Mark Cosgrove, the Tasmania batsman, will return to Glamorgan as their second overseas player for the Friends Provident t20 next season. He will join the new captain, South Africa batsman Alviro Petersen, at the club which has undergone major upheaval in recent weeks.
Jamie Dalrymple was dumped as captain in favour of Petersen which then led to the resignation of Dalrymple from the club and the departure of coach Matthew Maynard.
"Mark has been an exceptional player for the club and is a very popular player with our supporters and members," said Alan Hamer, the Glamorgan chief executive. "We are delighted that Mark will be returning to us again in 2011 as our second overseas player."
Cosgrove, 26, scored 562 runs in the 2010 FP t20 and is looking forward to his return. "This will be my fourth season with Glamorgan and I'm delighted to be returning," he said. "The club has a talented squad and I look forward to what I hope will be a successful Twenty20 campaign in 2011."
