    Not for me. No interest in Welsh Fire. Only David Lloyd from Glammy in their squad.

    this hundred seems very plastic and 'fast food' cricket and not for me. t20 was acceptable so why the need for this glitz? tennis balls and plastic bats next ffs!

    I wonder if these participants will become specialist Hundred players and ultimately gett capped by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

    There is already a set of specialist limited overs cricketers and a set of test batsmen with different captains though there is some cross over.

    Call me an old cynic but it just seems to me like another money making exercise which will see the public get charged top dollar for watching "international cricketers"... hundreds of them.

    Not fussed on T20, not interested in the Hundred and definitely will not be interested in the Eighty in future.

    The hundred is the way they found to get franchised cricket and get bigger names playing in this country.
    The blast is the only t20 competition in the world that is played by sides that play domestic cricket sides.
    The Ecb think they missed a trick when they saw how big the IPL and Big Bash have become and now want the same.
    Watched a bit last night and not that impressed with this new format.
    Can't see how it will attract people who don't already like cricket which they claim they are trying to do.

    Need to get van der Gugten to sign a new contract now - he's been very good this season. Fully expecting James Harris to sign for next season as well.
    Confirmed that James Harris is joining permanently for 2022. Still worried that there's no news on van der Gugten!

    Re: GLAMMY

    I’d like to see a match where there are mixed teams minimum of 5 men 5 women - think that would be quite good

    So we have Neser, Hogan, Harris, Douthwaite and Weighell under contract next season. Not sure on Carey, Walker and Smith. TVG is one to keep but we are going to be overloaded with medium/fast bowlers the way this is heading. No idea why we signed Weighell.

    Agree.
    I cannot see this generating anywhere near as much interest as the IPL.

    The Asians are fanatical about cricket.
    We are fanatical about football.

    Interesting signing of James Harris. Pace bowling is a real strength area for us, and from what I've seen James Harris is on current form a level below what he have.
    He is well suited to the slow nibbly surfaces at sophia Gardens though, so hopefully he will be an asset

    Glamorgan 295-6 at the end of their fifty overs at Northants - 86 for Rutherford and an unbeaten 58 for Cullen, good knocks by Taylor and Joe Cooke as well.

  11. #2871

    Re: GLAMMY

    Northants 121-5 and needing to score at near seven an over from now on.

  12. #2872

    Re: GLAMMY

    Glamorgan doing well at the 50 over format so far!

  13. #2873

    Re: GLAMMY

    Northants now 6 wickets down. Never count your chickens with Glamorgan, but looking like 2 wins out of 2 in this competition

    I quite enjoyed it and will watch again.

    Haven't seen Glamorgan since Viv Richards played and have no interest in watching England.

    Northants 236 all out.

  16. #2876

    Re: GLAMMY

    That’s an excellent win. Joe Cooke had a.very good all round game.

  17. #2877

    Re: GLAMMY

    Welsh Fire won last night in a tremendous game. Glammy won today in a longer game. Enjoyed both - why not??

    Re: GLAMMY

    Brilliant result. Good to see us playing confident and aggressive cricket
