    Woeful stuff. Labuschagne out playing no stroke again. Lloyd needlessly run out. Cooke playing a one day shot when his team needed him to stuck it out. Harris taking the bait and going for the hook. Very poor.
    This game is going to be lost in the first session.

    I despair with cooke sometimes, really good batsman but just seems to do so many stupid things. He ran out Lloyd today, then played that ridiculous shot himself.

    He is a very talented player but for some reason rarely goes on to post big scores. I have no idea why he played that shot.

    Annoying stand, need a quick wicket this morning.

    Finally broken the simpson/Roland Jones partnership. Starting to look like a tough situation to dig ourselves out of though.

    214 runs behind now its hard but it is still day 2

    Salter out cheaply again. This silly experiment of playing him as an opener needs to end. He should be coming in as a number eight.

    I’m used to Glammy being poor but this performance is annoying me because this team should be a lot better than this. It’s looking like an innings defeat. Not good enough.

    Looks like rain could affect a fair bit of tomorrows play. Still probably won't be enough for us unfortunately though. Ideally I suppose we'd need tomorrow to be rained off, followed by a 200 run partnership between neser and northeast. Dream territory basically

    Disappointing after the last match

    I agree, very disappointing stuff. You could make a case for saying that they were unlucky to lose an impirtant toss, but their batting in the second innings has knocked that on the head.

    One other thing, when we next play Middlesex at home, can we take it to an out ground (why can’t we play at that lovely ground at Abergavenny again?), we seem to be beaten before a ball is bowled when we play them in Cardiff.

    Yep our record is dreadful against them in Cardiff. Is there a cost implication playing games outside of Sophia Gardens? I presume Colwyn Bay will have it’s usual games. Beyond that Neath have a couple of Royal London games and that’s about it.

    Yes, I think it is down to cost. There’s no game at Newport then? I thought they’d have a one day game and we really should be playing some cricket at St Helen’s - it’s terrible the way that grounds been allowed to go to pot.

    I checked the fixtures and I can’t see any in St Helens which is plain wrong. Not any in Newport either.

    I can’t see any games being played at Colwyn Bay either. That’s not good.

    Re: GLAMMY

    Yes, a couple of games at Neath, the friendly with Wales at a venue to be confirmed and the rest at Cardiff - I wonder if there’ll be an effect on membership numbers as it hardly seems worth bothering unless you live in the M 4 corridor.

    Just to change the subject slightly, but Jos Buttler hit another century in the IPL today. That's his 3rd of the season in 8 games. Hes also got 2 50's. There's only been 1 other ton this year.

    Buttler should still be part of the ODI and T20 squads but not the Test team. Time to move on.

    He's such a great player to watch. Absolutely untouchable this ipl. Although I see that the utterly useless McCoy did his best to undo Buttlers hard work. Really enjoyable tournament so far !

    I ws going to post last night that we had been unlucky with the toss as the pitch seemed to get easier later in the day.

    Then today Middlesex make the most of the easier pitch and we don't!
