    104 all out. That is the final nail in the coffin. I would like to see youngsters playing in the final few games and release Ingram early as he has been dreadful. Sad to see him struggling. He was superb 3 or 4 years ago.

    My maths still gives us a chance of qualifying with winning the next 3, although glam website seemed to think we needed to win all 4. Then again, I've probably got more chance of winning the lottery than seeing glamorgan win 3 in a row. And I don't even play the lottery

    Ingram should not have been brought back. He and the club had a similarly poor campaign in 2019. It was a very poor decision to keep playing him ahead of Neser.

    At Lords for the middlesex game. Looks like they should destroy Sussex very easily. Big game for us against Sussex tomorrow

    I don’t think our run rate helps. Three wins is very unlikely to be enough.

    Re: GLAMMY

    I've used the word "pathetic/" to describe Glamorgan cricket plenty of times down the years, but last night is the first time I've considered using it this season - one man has carried our batting in T20 this season and, one match apart, the decision to favour Ingram over Neser, which looked dubious at the time, has been a total flop.

    My concern is that our campaign in the four day game, which I would call a success up to now, faces the prospect of being derailed because so many of our batsman have played themselves out of form in the twenty over games - I reckon us finishing third or fourth in a group featuring four First Division teams would be a really good outcome, but I presume Labuschagne and Neser won't be available for the Sussex match on Sunday?

    The glam website has been suggesting they will be back on Sunday. Sussex will still be without their covid affected players though

    It does make it very tough to be fair. I think someone will qualify from the group with 14 points, but that caning does make it unlikely to be us.

    Another hammering tonight. Glad it’s back to Championship cricket because this has been yet another feeble T20 campaign

    Re: GLAMMY

    Like Chris I was at Lord’s last night and Sussex were very poor against what is a terrible Middlesex side.

    Admittedly they were missing a few regular players due to a Covid outbreak but frankly they were pathetic.

    If Glammy are struggling against these two then that is a quite unimpressive achievement.

    Struggling to think of options outside of some dramatic and extensive recruitment on both the playing and coaching staff.

    In fairness Salt and Wright are terrific in T20. Not many better opening partnerships in this form of the game.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Another disapointing game. Obviously losing Selman and Marnus has hurt us. But we weren't exactly setting the world alight when they were playing.

    I think we've been poorly coached.

    I understand why Douthwaite started the season so low down the batting order as he wasn't in great touch. When he hit form he should have been moved up into the top 4.

    Ingram has quite obviously been bang out of form, really begs the question why he was continually picked over Neser. Combined with the fact that our pace bowling has been a bit underpowered when Smith isn't in the side. Even if Ingram had been playing well, Neser arguably still would have been the better option.

    Can't understand Carlson opening. A good coach would have told him to stop trying to swing from the hip every ball and build some innings. Maynard has just encouraged him to carry on in that vein by sticking him up top. Carlson is one of the few players we have with the ability to rotate strike and accelerate at the end. He needs to be in the engine room not pissing about trying to play cameos. Douthwaite did well at the top of the order when given the chance last year, he'd be a much better shout as an opener than Carlson going forward.

    In 2019 we had a great start to the season, then it all fell apart from the last 4 day game before the t20s onwards. Really hope we can regroup this year and not repeat that.

    If we can turn over Sussex in the championship next week, I think I can quite happily forget this whole sorry t20 campaign ever existed.

    Re: GLAMMY

    The thing is Neser can bat as well. Not good enough from Maynard to continually play Ingram who wasn’t good enough to be brought back this season. It was a very poor mistake.

    Very true, he's a definite all rounder. He bowled so well in his championship appearances for us I'm positive he'd have had a good t20 campaign. 4 good pace overs a game, and power from 7 or 8 would have been so valuable.

    It would have made a big difference.

    everyone raves about Matt Maynard but why? the whole setup is failing to deliver.

    I think he is the main problem personally. Weíve got some decent players and one absolutely world class player in Marnus. Our cluelessness has really stood out in the t20s. Bowling a left arm spinner first over to 2 left handed openers in one game being the most ridiculous example. Most t20 sides get the little things right now, its a huge part of the game. As a team we just don't even seem to notice these things, Maynard and Cooke have to take the blame for that

    Our t20 record under him is very poor but our Championship record is decent. I don’t think he takes t20 seriously but he should because that’s where the money is and it’s brings in punters through the turnstiles.

    I see Maynard is involved with the coaching for the Welsh Fire - I agree that he's been a better long game coach for Glamorgan than short game one, but this suggests that he is pretty highly regarded when it comes to the latter.

    Duncan Fletcher rated Maynard, he still seems to be pretty well thought of at Somerset and his longevity as a coach suggests that applies throughout the game.

    The wheels rather came off for Glamorgan in T20 once Labuschagne became unavailable and as he and Neser's period of self isolation doesn't end until Monday, they both miss out at Sussex - Joe Cooke, Hogan and Van Der Guigten (his resting for the last couple of T20 matches suggests we took the opportunity to give a few youngsters a game) return, while Ingram is in a squad of thirteen along with Sam Pearce.
