Thread: GLAMMY

    Re: GLAMMY

    Something to ponder regarding batting tactics. The Glamorgan pair last night spent a good half hour batting for the morning as it were. Barely scored a run. Today they have lost 2 wickets already to fresh bowlers when they could have been tonking last night. Itís pretty brainless isnít it?

    It was an odd day all round yesterday with no wickets falling in the first and third sessions and six in the second one.

    Gloucestershire 20-0 in reply to Glamorgan's 309 and looking pretty comfortable in what seem to be more bowler friendly conditions than yesterday.

    Couple of fine catches by Chris Cooke that are worth a look at on the stream on the club website - Gloucestershire 92-2.

    Fair play two excellent catches by Cooke
    Andrew Salter takes his 100th first class wicket closely followed by his 101st - Glos currently 185 for 4

    I was listening to the cricket on 5 Lixe Extra just now and one of the commentators said she was all cricketed out by now, to which the other commentator said that’s because you’ve won a trophy. I think Glamorgan were cricketed out as soon as they took the last Durham wicket in the Final - today they allowed the last two Gloucestershire wickets to put on about 110 and they’re 57-6 in their second innings and looking at another innings defeat.

    I thought they started well, but then collapsed. 57-6 after letting them get 110 at the tail is pathetic by any standards.

    this collection of players needs a proverbial up the rear as they seem comfortable with losing. would they class themselves as professionals?

    This may well be the third successive innings defeat. That simply should not be seen as acceptable. Maynard should be hammering them for this.

    Another embarrassing non-performance. So inconsistent.

    I caught this as well and thought exactly the same TOBW. After a good start in the championship, that didnít see us far off qualifying for the top division (mercifully, in this nick), the performances in this final quarterís worth of games have been truly woeful. They are doing their best to take the shine off the one day cup victory and what was a very decent 4-day campaign till September!

    Essex have been the best four day side in the country in the years before this season and are still a very good team, Gloucestershire were unlucky not to make it through to the top group after leading their table for so long and I think Durham would have got promoted this season under the two Division system that was around pre pandemic, so we've played some sides that player for player are better than us in these three games.

    However, back in the spring and early summer, we were unbeaten in four matches with Yorkshire and Lancashire (we beat the latter in one of them) and thrashed a Kent side that were doing well in Division One in 2019. More than that, we were competitive in all of the early matches played before Labuschagne and Neser arrived.

    Therefore the players, who have Rutherford as an improvement on Balbernie now, have shown that they are a lot better than their form during September has suggested. I have tended to be more sympathetic than some in this thread about what's happened since the Final. but yesterday was hard to take - they are still being paid a decent wage to do something which few get the chance to do and they really do need to show a bit more in the season ender against Surrey.

    Glamorgan 213-2 coming up to tea on the first day of their match at the Oval against Surrey - David LLoyd 91 not out.

    Cue a spectacular collapse.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Relief to see some of the top order getting runs under the belt following the chastening last few games, although you really should expect it given the conditions (appreciating its Glamorgan weíre talking aboutÖ).

    Took the day off and itís been a very pleasant day in the sun with a couple beers at the Oval. Strangely enough Iíve a works thing here on Friday, so hope it goes the distance.

    Will the declaration come if Cooke gets a double century.
    What happened at Chelmsford? Essex win by an innings and some after being dismissed for 170. 😱

    Re: GLAMMY

    672-6 declared, Glamorgan’s third highest score, with Cooke 205 not out.

    Northants were bowled out for 81 and 45 in that match with Essex.

    Brilliant innings. A double century, a century and a couple of 50s from our batsmen. A lot of very low scores around the country so this must a cracker of a wicket for batsmen. Let's see how our bowlers get on.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Good to see the batsmen in the runs. Looks like an odds in draw though.

    Think Essex would easily be challenging for the title had they not had their blip right at the start of the season.

    Got to the Oval in time to catch Cooke reaching 205, great achievement. Been a good couple of days for our beleaguered batsmen (or batters!). See how our spinners get on as the deck hasnít been offering much for seam, which is a little bit of a shame as I wouldnít have begrudged Rikki Clarke getting a wicket on his final game.
