    In other Glamorgan news, Nick Selman has left the club;-

    That’s a nice article. Critchley would be a good signing.
    Selman is a shame. He would have been worth another contract but for the one day stuff only.

    Good signing that

    Re: GLAMMY

    Glamorgan definitely seem to be trying to sort out what has been a long term batting problem and if what I’ve been told about Matt Critchley coming here is correct, we would actually begin to look strong in this area if Labuschagne plays a fair portion of next season for us.

    I’d been told we were trying to sign Northeast and was dismissive thinking we had no chance of getting him, so well done to all involved.

    So we're back in the 2nd Div next season. Pity I quite liked the conference format.

    Thatís a shame, with a few tweaks I was hoping the structure would stick around.

    Just turned on the under 19s cricket World Cup and I see Glamorgan’s young wicketkeeperAlex Horton has had 6 dismissals in their first game against Bangladesh.
    I played in a club game against him when he was probably only 12 years old and I have never seen anyone that young look so good. Hopefully there is a massive future ahead of him

    Let’s hope so.

    I see Critchley went to Essex

    Yeah on a three year deal, we were always going to lose out in the face of an offer like that - I’ve no proof of this, but I wonder if we wouldn’t have got Northeast if we’d signed Critchley?

    His idea would mean the continuation of a Cardiff/Glamorgan side, but spell the end for Gloucestershire and Somerset in terms of the sort of status they have now, counties are never going to accept that sort of thing.

    Bit of a daft idea from aggers in my opinion, all that does is rip all the history away and drive a wedge between cricket and its supporters. With no guarantee of a good result.

    I'd personally rather see a mid season tournament between 2 or 4 representative teams made up of the best players that season. Make them 5 day matches on test standard pitches.

    While the County game does have problems, I think it's also a bit rich to blame all the test teams problems on the counties. Lots of players who failed in that England ashes side had good starts to their international careers. They have then failed to improve or gone downhill rapidly. That suggests to me that the England coaches and analysts aren't doing a particularly great job.

    The English/welsh County game seemed to do ok for the career development of Marnus Labushagne and Travis Head 🤣

    That's a point!

    Glamorgan’s fixtures for the 2022 season, no four day games during August again - it’s no wonder England are so weak in test match cricket when it comes to spin bowling.
