Glamorgan sealed a place in the quarter-finals of the T20 Blast with a comfortable seven-wicket victory over South Group bottom side Somerset in Cardiff.

Colin Ingram starred with 54 after claiming 3-20 with his leg-spin.

David Lloyd (28) and Mark Wallace (20) got Glamorgan off to a solid start, before Ingram and Aneurin Donald (44 not out) steered them home.

Somerset's innings was rescued by James Hildreth (39), but the target of 153 always looked achievable.

Johan Myburgh clubbed 28 off 14 balls for the visitors while Josh Davey chipped in with 23 not out at the death.

But they also lost wickets too early to allow any late acceleration, with two victims each for Shaun Tait and Graham Wagg as well as Ingram's superb spell which included a double-wicket maiden.

Glamorgan never looked in danger once Ingram got going and won with two overs to spare.

Somerset and Glamorgan meet again in the One-Day Cup at Taunton on Sunday 24 July.

Glamorgan conclude their T20 campaign with away games against Sussex and Essex on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 July, when Somerset travel to Hampshire.

Man of the match Colin Ingram told BBC Radio Wales:

"Delighted, it's great to come here today and secure a quarter-final, that was in the back of everyone's minds so it's nice to take the pressure off and get some momentum after two bad weeks.

"We've had a lot of guys in good form with the bat, and the bowlers have been putting in performances week-in, week-out so there's a lot of good spirit among the guys and I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks.

"We needed to put two weaker performances behind us and we did that, we kept taking wickets regularly and then knocked off the total to secure a quarter-final, it's a good moment."
