Thread: GLAMMY

    Re: GLAMMY

    Quite simply rubbish. Fairplay to Hants for chasing that down within 13.

    Re: GLAMMY

    In T20 this is a new low. It’s been obvious our bowling has been very weak. It’s been obvious that Ingram is a liability. Total incompetence from Maynard to not drop Ingram for Neser. We are likely to finish bottom of the group with Middlesex looking likely to win.
    Thank God this campaign is over.

    Embarrassingly easy for Hampshire, the other counties they can overtake must have thought oh no when they realised they only had to beat Glamorgan in the last match

    I can't believe I wasted a lovely Sunday to watch that utter shite. Glammy are a total disaster with no leadership and Ingram has had a mare of a season. Carlson's batting is reckless, Ingram slowed everything down with a 'Granny like' scoring rate, ok a reasonable total but actually grossly under par on that wicket. As for the bowling where do you start total incompetence to let Hampshire score at that rate. Whoever is coaching that lot needs firing and getting someone decent in. Now watch them screw up in the One Day. Very disappointing for those of us who remember Glammy in their halcyon days.

    Saw the first innings and thought it was reasonable, especially as Hants needed to take risks, but I couldnít believe what I was seeing when I checked the result. Appalling. Were they bowling underarm?

    Re: GLAMMY

    Although I thought the England v Pakistan match at Trent Bridge was great, I'm no big fan on T20 cricket and so am quick to turn to the four day game where Glamorgan have, in my opinion, done well this season while largely playing teams who would be in Division One if the two division format was still in place.

    However, I'm wrong to do this really, because T20 and the finance that comes with it is very important in the modern game and it cannot just be dismissed by cricket snobs like me.

    The fact is that Glamorgan, after being a pretty competitive team for a good few years, have been awful at this format in recent years - our drop in standards coincides more or less exactly with the decline in Colin Ingram's power and this only goes to show how important he was for us in his pomp.

    Much was made of how well Hampshire did to score those runs so quickly yesterday, but the game represented a new low for Glamorgan and offered proof that, although the game looked like a fix at times, no one really believes that, because, deep down, they know we really are as bad as we looked yesterday.

    I'd say that we've now reached a stage where a great deal of time needs to be spent on trying to find ways of making us more competitive in this form of the game. With the two overseas players for 2022 already signed up and money tight, it seems to me that short of bringing in some specialist coaches, any improvement has to come from what we have already.

    One encouraging thing is that we were the winners of the second eleven T20 tournament last year and so you'd like to think we have some young players who have the potential and ability to become good performers in this format at senior level.

    On the batting side, only Labuschagne and, to a lesser degree, Selman showed any consistency. Much has been said about Ingram, but players like Cooke, Root and Carlson (who is a quick scoring player in the four day game) offered little, while Lloyd sometimes did the hard work and then gave his wicket away.

    Bowling was something of a disaster, but it shows how bad the batting was that it could be argued that it was our stronger suit. Walker's success when given a chance should have embarrassed some of his seniors, Smith is, potentially a good one day bowler, but is injured so much of the time and Van Der Gugten offered a degree of control much of the time. As for the others, with Sisodiya struggling to match his 2021 performance, spin was very weak, while I'm afraid the likes of Douthwaite (who could be a really important player for us if his bowling could improve, say, fifty per cent) and Weighell were just cannon fodder.

    There is no easy way back it seems for Glamorgan, but Neser has to be picked ahead of Ingram next season surely - there was no logic in sticking with Ingram for the last few matches, just what seemed a stubborn insistence that his place in the team was justified on the basis of what he once was. Those days are gone now though, just like Glamorgan's time as a decent T20 side has unless there is a fundamental rethink at Sophia Gardens.

    Agree with all of this. I have hammered Ingramís poor form but itís been very surprising to see Cooke and Carlson fare so poorly when they have been doing so well in the four day format. Root is always flaky so not too surprising he wasnít great.

    Douthwaite really needs to work on his accuracy. He reminds me of a very poor version of Botham. All action but his bowling is all over the place. The bowling attack was very weak and bowling two spinners at the start of the game didnít work this season. We look a very poor outfit again in this form of the game and this tends to be the way under Maynard. Having said that he does have a record of making us competitive in the four day games.

    Glammy need a Neil Warnock equivalent and a street fighter aka Darren Stevens, Maynard needs some help and agree funds tight.

    Glamorgan bowled out for 202 by Wales Minor Counties in a warm up game for the fifty over competition,

    Another embarrassing defeat. Perhaps Maynard can explain why Lucas Carey has been ignored all season

    It really is hard work watching Glam at the moment, even from the comfort of one's armchair!

    Sheesh. It was a weak side. I don’t get what’s happened to Carey. He hasn’t played at all this season having been promising in previous campaigns. He was surely MoTM today.
    It looks like Smith has picked up another injury.

  13. #2833

    Re: GLAMMY

    Smith bowled just one ball and couldn't continue - I think there's a decent performer in all forms of the game there if we could get him on the pitch for any amount of time, but I think we're at the stage now where we should just assume he's not going to be playing and treat the rare occasions when he is as a bonus.

    Provided Weighell wasn't injured, the fact he couldn't get into the team tells a story and I can only hope that it's Carey who comes in to replace Smith and not him because his bowling has been a liability.

    Anyone going to watch the Hundred tonight?

    Not interested in it Paul. I don’t see the point of this competition.

    I see that most of the Welsh Fire home games are Ďsold outí. Is this due to the pitiful capacity numbers? I thought WG had mainly gone down the same road as England on sporting crowds? Baffling.

    Think it’s a capacity of 2000 which I’m guessing would be thought a poor crowd pre Covid.

    Some Glamorgan news, Dan Dowthwaite will be playing for the Manchester based team in the Hundred.

    The Royal London Cup is going to become a part reserves team competition this season because of the Hundred

    Re: GLAMMY

    Ended up watching the whole of the first Hundred game and, first and foremost, it was a very good game of cricket which, for much of the time, was of a high standard with the Manchester wicketkeeper proving as accomplished as Sarah Taylor (that's a big compliment!) and better than many in the men's game - Glenn Phillips, who'll be playing for Welsh Fire in the Hundred, has, rightly, been lauded for his batting displays for Gloucestershire, but he was pretty hopeless as a stumper in their televised game with Somerset this week.

    It's strange that the women's game can produce superb wicket keepers and yet the standard of catching falls so far below the men's game. It's hard to see why this should be, because strength isn't much of a factor in that department of the game, but last night's match was decided by Manchester dropping three pretty straightforward catches and it was hardly unique to this one game - I've seen some right dolly catches go down in previous women's matches I've watched.

    As for the format, I didn't notice it much because it was a watchable match that I quite got into, but, thinking about it, it didn't seem too much different to a T20 game and I'm left thinking that I can't see why someone who wasn't converted to cricket by T20, will be by the Hundred..
