Thread: GLAMMY

    Re: GLAMMY

    I had to stop following from when Glam needed about 240 off 23 overs. Can't believe they got the win!

    Re: GLAMMY

    I started listening when I got home yesterday afternoon and the first thing I heard was Carlson getting out. I switched off after that and didn't bother checking what had happened until about four hours later - there's not too much competition I know, but that has to be Glamorgan's best performance of the season.

    As he did in the T20 last year, Ingram has proved himself to be one of the best one day batsmen in the country and, as Pearcey says, it was good to see Cooke, finally, make a contribution with the bat.

    I'd like to see a few less Kolpak/foreign players in the Glamorgan side, but I must admit that the one we signed in the winter is beginning to look a shrewd acquisition - De Lange seems to have settled in now and he's showing an ability to get good players.

    Another hundred for Ingram, Glamorgan currently 323-6 with eleven balls of their innings left against Kent.

    356/7 is a fine score. Good to see the batsman finding some form.

    Nice to think they are finding some kind of form.

    Shame about the bowling.. We went to the corresponding game two years ago when Darren Stevens got a century. He has done it again today. He is 41!

    Just out for 147 off 67 balls, what an indictment it is of the England selectors that Stevens has not played senior international cricket at any level.

    Glammy win by 15 runs and finish with four wins and four defeats but not enough for the top three.

    Go back to our sides 10/12 years ago. Where'd he have fitted in exactly? Flintoff was always the top dog.

    Stevens at our place on Friday was a nightmare with the ball, forever been a thorn in our side

    Flintoff missed plenty of matches through injury during his career - I think Stevens could have played then.

    I've seen a proper all rounder being defined as someone who is good enough to get into a team as a batter and bowler on merit. Throughout most of Stevens' career, I've tended to think that he wasn't good enough at the latter to fulfill that criteria, but he's made me change my mind in recent years and you only have to look at his record with Kent lately to see that he is in their best two or three bowlers.

    In test cricket, I'd still doubt that Stevens could ever have been anything other than a fourth, or even fifth seamer, but, apart from Botham, Flintoff and Stokes I cannot think of other England all rounders who have fulfilled that good enough to get in as a batsman and bowler criteria in my lifetime and I can certainly think of worse players than Stevens who have won test caps for England as all rounders (e.g. Ian Greig, Chris Cowdrey, David Capel, Adam Hollioake).

    It's in one day cricket though that I feel Stevens has been particularly hard done by - I'd say there's even a case for picking him in the fifty and twenty over teams now.

    Had you not posted these links I would not have bothered to look at the score. I have given up on the four day stuff as they are so poor. To have another run out is inexcusable. There have been a number already this season. This will be another heavy defeat.

    Re: GLAMMY

    All we got to look forward to is the T20s and I bet that will be over after the first few games. We're shit.

    Re: GLAMMY

    The club will need to attract a qualityoverseas signing to drum up any interest in T20. The authorities don't help though. There was no need to go straight to semi finals in the Royal London Cup. They could have had quarter finals to keep more counties involved.

    Re: GLAMMY

    To be fair, they are playing the team who are likely to win the league this season, but, even so, that was a stereotypical Glamorgan four day batting performance with all of the experienced batsmen failing and only a couple of youngsters suggesting they might be able to cope - Glamorgan will struggle to take the match beyond tea time today if, as I assume they will, Notts enforce the follow on.

    It's shaping up to be a comprehensive defeat.

    This is beginning to look like yet another terrible season .

    I sometimes wonder If it would be better to introduce promotion/relegation from the minor counties so Glamorgan could go down, regroup and maybe bring on some local talent.

    As it stands this is fast becoming a pointless exercise with a disinterested public .

    Better. Very slow going but at least they are making Notts work for the win. Ingram and Cooke are both very talented players who underachieve in the four day stuff. They need to try and see out the first session tomorrow and take it from there

    Ingram and Cooke are still together and we're 60 odd in front

    Do they stream all the games, or this was a one off?

    All home games are streamed, with a static camera synced to the live commentary.

    They got the draw in the end. Ingram and Cooke partnership making 268. Great effort from where they were Saturday.

    Fair play that was a great effort to scrape a draw out of a lost cause.
    There's still hope yet. Onwards and upwards and all that bollocks.
