Nothing on the game for us but the youngsters embraced like they'd just won the World Cup and the rest of the team, who'd been cheering noisily from the balcony, came down en masse to congratulate them. No reason to get carried away about it, of course, but we may as well enjoy the positives when they come.

    Highlights of Douthwaite's innings here. The technique suggests he won't be opening in test cricket any time soon but he looks to have a big heart (he bowled well too). Not sure about his haircut but he's young so there's plenty of time to work on that.

    Glamorgan finished their 50 over programme well with three wins from four matches and, having switched over from the Liverpool v Ajax match to watch the last three or four overs of Tuesday's game. I can confirm they've definitely got some lower order batsmen who can not only hit the ball very hard, but also hit it a long, long way.

    Douthwaite hadn't done much in his first couple of matches for us, but, as you say, he bowled really well against Sussex. Roman Walker might be one to keep an eye out for as well - he took six wickets in an innings and then scored an unbeaten 80 to guide Glamorgan to a draw in their last second eleven match against Gloucestershire.

    Bad start to a big day for Glamorgan. Derbyshire's second half century last wicket stand of the match leaves us chasing 245 to win - seems a bit too much to me and, if it is, it'll almost certainly be those last wicket runs which win it for Derby.

    Already 1 down. Need a big innings from Hemphrey or Labuschagne here.

    And you're right, Bob. That's a great dig from Rampaul, which has changed the game.

    Looks like our last hope has gone with Douthwaite needing to dig in.
    Madsen doing the damage on an obviously worsening pitch.
    We're doomed i tell thee, doomed!

    Doing our best to lose.

    208-7. Cullen & Salter have put on 46 and need 38 to win.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Salter gone now, think it’s swung back in Derbyshire ‘s favour but it’s going to be a close finish!

    Glammy win! 50 for Cullen. Somebody on here said he was gash before this game - he's been excellent throughout!

    Re: GLAMMY

    Never in doubt!

    brilliant win. Didn't think Cullen had it in him, 2 fantastic knocks this match. The 2 youngsters in Cullen and douthwaite have won this for us. Could be a promotion to division 1 at the end of the seaon

    👍 You may well be right but after biting my nails listening to the last hour's commentary, I couldn't resist bringing it up!
    Well done Glammy.

    That’s a really good win for Glammy and good to see the youngsters contributing. A positive start to the season.

    Yep Unbeaten start to the season in CC 1 win and 2 draws.

    Following the game this afternoon I noticed what a strong bowling performance Derbs. seemed to be putting in. For our 2nd innings they conceded only 5 extras, and 3 of them came towards the end from a knackered bowler I suspect. The first innings produced 25 extras from them and 26 from us, so we really had to work hard for the win today.

    We have the most batting bonus points in the division.

    Yeah saw that, a massive 10.

    Re: GLAMMY

    What a superb win by a team that would be considered some way short of our strongest eleven. Early days yet, but Glamorgan's batting looks to be as solid as it's been for years in the four day game with everyone contributing today after the early loss of the openers.

    I was listening yesterday when the commentators agreed Douthwaite was the quickest bowler on show and although I took Edward Bevan's assertion that he was reaching 90mph with a pinch of salt, if he was right, I reckon we could soon be seeing the first visit by an England selector to a Glamorgan game since Matt Maynard was playing, not coaching!

    Tony Cordle was quicker

    Cordle laid me out first ball in the indoor nets in the National Sports centre when I was a pup. I was one of a few being looked at for a summer with the Lords Ground Staff . I was batting ok until they brought Cordle in to ruffle me. I left his first ball in true Geoff Boycott style shouldering arms, but it nipped back and hit me smack in the bollocks. Funnily enough I was never called up to Lords for the final trial!!!

    Great story, Glamorgans first overseas bowler , remember watching him at SG in 1969 school hols. fast , wayward at times but always a threat, part of a great team.
