Thread: GLAMMY

    Re: GLAMMY

    That is ridiculous. I wondered why Hogan,Wagg and Bragg were not involved in the friendlies. I knew Van Der Gugten was injured but this is mad.

    This is shocking, even by our standards.
    Looks like cricketeters have gone the way of the modern day footballers, pampered with no balls (no pun intended)

    Hogan played in one of the pre season matches, so he may have got injured then. A few years back there were stories about how the Glamorgan players were now full time pros who began pre season training in something like November, is that still the case? If it is, then you have to say that it's not doing them much good!

    The bowlers like Wagg and Hogan are getting older now, Still think an attack of DeLange, Carey, Podmore and Meschede, could work out ok.

    Batting looks a little better of Rudolph, Selman, Lloyd, Ingram, Cooke, Donald, Carlson , Meschede. I'd say spinners miss out today, With Carlson bowling the overs if required, seeing as its April.

    I'd like to see to see a competitive season with some progression from the youngsters. I dont expect a promotion year. Like to see some good cricket in the white ball stuff as well.

    Glamorgan win toss and bat, spinners miss out, as expected really.

    And they've survived an over - 2 for 0.

    Rudolph out for 9. 9-3

    This isnt looking like a good decision to bat.

    On the bright side at least Leicestershire are 16 points behind us (for now)

    Re: GLAMMY

    26-6 Carlson out first ball.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Well, they managed to get to a hundred - 101 all out and Northants 17-0.

    Glamorgan played seven batsmen and four of them were out for ducks, while two others failed to get into double figures - you can't jump to too many conclusions on the first day of the season, but our specialist batting hasn't been good enough for about three years now, so it's hard to see why things should change this season and yet all we ever seem to do is sign seam bowlers.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Northants 29-3, Meschede just bowled a player off a no ball, and then had him dropped in the slips the next ball.

    Sounds a like a wonderful wicket!
    Perhaps our doubts of our Glambags were a little premature!

    Hundred 10th wicket partnership coming up

    Re: GLAMMY

    We don't have any openers. None of Rudolph,Selman, and Lloyd are good enough to open. They are always out cheaply meaning the middle order are exposed to the new ball.
    I don't think a middle order of Bragg at 3,Ingram 4,Donald at 5,Cooke at 6 and Wagg at 7 is too bad.
    Bragg needs to revert to being an opener again as we will at least then hsve one relatively competent opening bat.

    Re: GLAMMY

    I had assumed Northants won the toss and elected to bowl but no Rudolph did and chose to bat in overcast and damp conditions. He really is useless

    That or Hugh Morris to come bring himself out of retirement to open.
    Disastrous main line bats no question.

    Can you believe it. Great weather predicted this afternoon,tomorrow and Sunday and he opts to bat in the damp.

    Re: GLAMMY

    More than that, since last season the visiting captain has the option of bowling first. We would have declined that option then the toss would have taken place as it normally does. Bizarre.

    He must have had a reason, but be fooked if I can think what that reason was.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Glamorgan did well to take the last four Northants wickets quite quickly and I see Jacques Rudolph was saying it was the type of wicket that someone could get a double hundred on if they could get in. Well, it won't be him, Selman or Lloyd because they're all out as Glamorgan lunched at 32-3, still 177 runs behind - Lloyd, who based on the little I've seen of him, looks completely unsuited to bat at three in the four day game, was out for his second duck of the game.

    Lloyd made a bright start to last season and then endured a miserable time constantly losing his wicket for next to nothing.Until we get decent openers he will be exposed to the new ball almost immediately. We could losethis by an innings.

    It's not looking great.
    Every year I have hope. Problem is this year it lasted one innings.
