Glamorgan are 30-odd ahead with 5 wickets in hand, and all set to increase their advantage. Leicestershire deserve it after the filth their new-ball pair served up. North is miles better than the rest, and he played all nice shots, everyone was surprised when he was given out for 116. Walters was bowled shouldering arms. I think it was his leg stump?

How?

Right arm over seam to a right handed batsman?

Yeh ... some misjudgement ... I may be mistaken though ... I was being distracted by a particularly awful exam script at the time ...

Around 2.24 onwards - just a misjudgement, looks like off stump to me.

Cheers, Paul. Looks like off but not a clever leave.

Oh dear on the exam script.

Off stump it is. Still I reckon my eyes are OK. And Glamorgan may take 9 wickets tomorrow, weather permitting.

With zero wins at the turn of June, it's been an utterly bleak start for Glamorgan.

On paper, when you look at their side/squad, as is so often the case in these sort of situations, it is really not a bad group of players, with lots of experience between them. But they evidently lack the extra "something" to turn playing okay into wins.

The changeover for the T20 is going to give them a chance to regroup, and they really need to put in a proper challenge to progress from their group to salvage something from this season.

I wonder how differently things might have worked out had it not been for the behind the scenes ructions and departure of the Maynards immediately after the 2010 season. I think Glamorgan were occupying a promotion place for the entire season up until the final hour of the final day.

Admittely they've had rotten luck with an epidemic of injuries to their seam bowlers over the past season and a half.

Yes, that's right.

Unfortunately, as you say, their brightest prospect has left; Powell also leaving and now prospering at kent also doesn't reflect that well.

The squad has quite a few guys heading to/in their mid-20s who have never really kicked on. They lack a talisman/match-winners. If/when the likes of Croft, Cosker and Wallace retire, that will leave even more holes.

I think it will make some difference when James Harris is fit, but as whole the players have not recovered from Maynard senior's departure. It wasn't what they wanted and it didn't work.

Gotta bump this thread in the wake of Glamorgan's first victory of the season. A contrived target with two innings forfeit, but still you have to score the runs. Splendid partnership between Allenby and Wallace sealed it for the Glams by the looks of it. Hopefully this victory will be the first of however many are possible before the end of the season.

I was hoping to catch a glimpse of Glamorgan for the first time in a few years down in The Holy City on Friday but it looks like rain might put paid to that. Still, at least this year, it'll be the good old traditional weather than ruins the fixture, rather than the ECB's crappy pink ball and floodlights project.

Huw Waters really must be one of the best No 11s of all time.

That was certainly an extremely useful last-wicket stand!

The match is well placed for Glamorgan to win if the weather holds off ... Gloucestershire, chasing 248 to win, are 54 for 4, with Cosker and Croft bowling in tandem.

Things haven't gone well for Glamorgan this year - a dreadful start and a t20 campaign rendered almost impossible due to 5 no-results. They've been riddled with injuries but I think some recent matches have shown a glimmer of hope for next year.

Showed what they are capable of here and in quite a few recent games. I'd be trying to persuade Croft to see out his playing contract to the end of next year.

I do not think they should make radical changes or ditch players who haven't done so well this year. Look to strengthen a bit if possible - a good overseas for the whole season would be nice.

Oh dear. Well, they have offered him a new contract but it looks as if another county will trump it with a better deal...

Must say that Croft's final spell of the day and the tremendous ovation he received when walking off, acknowledging all sides of the ground, was a special moment, despite the defeat for us.
