Hogan 6036 balls 100 wickets at 28.46 econ 2.82 s/r 60.3

List A
Harris 40 wickets at 25.12
Hogan 26 wickets at 36.38

20/20
Harris 20 wickets at 28.85
Hogan 6 wickets at 43.16

It will be more likely that Hogan (30) will be learning from Harris (21).
To take the old saying, statistics should be used as a drunk uses a light-post - for support rather than enlightenment.

For starters, Hogan's career has been in the 6-club Sheffield Shield rather than v Division 2 CC batting line-ups. And I certainly wouldn't be turning my nose up at a player named as Western Australia's bowler of the year.

They certainly should make a good combination - pity Hogan doesn't arrive until the season is half-way over.

Mott would've almost certainly said "He'll help with the development of our young bowlers," without specifying Harris whatsoever. That's been added by the journalist.

He'll mainly be playing first class cricket, fitting in well with Simon Jones being a one-day specialist.

I'm following Glamorgan this year ...

Glad to see two quick wickets this morning after that annoying stand. Hopefully the remaining wickets can be snaffled swiftly ... then it'll be time for the Glamorgan batsmen to show their mettle for the first time this season.

Unfortunately not much mettle shown. From 92/3, Glamorgan have just lost 6 wickets for one run in 19 balls.

Taking the posi'ives: they started the run-chase very encouragingly. But I think it's going to be a long season.

Yes, this is a time that can be very difficult. Of course, in pre-season, everyone was going to do well; everyone's feeling good and, of course, no games have been played.

When you've lost both games and it's still only mid-April it's not a crisis by any means but the ship still needs to be turned fairly swiftly.

Come on the Glams!

I've always found Sean Ervine to be extremely annoying.

Sans - what made you follow the cause of the daffodil this year?

I think Hants deserve to get beaten here for picking two international opening batsmen and hiding them in the middle order behind an all-rounder and a journeyman.

I'm living in Cardiff less temporarily than ever before. (My life is still temporary, but Cardiff is less so.) I'm finding myself more and more behind the local lads, especially as I pass by the ground on the way to and from work. Hoping to see some sessions if circumstances permit.

Commiserations on living in Wales but I look forward to hearing your impressions if you do make it down to the SwalecSophia Gardens.

Went along this evening for the last 50 mins or so ... just walked in ... sat looking down the ground towards the river, good view of the trees and the busy sky. There were even less people than when England beat Sri Lanka. Glamorgan seemed to believe in their chances of victory and were geeing each other on ... I know some of their nicknames now ... there were some good catches, and I thought the last few wickets might tumble once Ervine was out ... but it was not to be! The key passage was the spell by Moet Henriques ... on several occasions he had the lesser batsman to bowl at, but bowled short and let him off strike ... he nearly had Ervine with a slower ball ... then in three balls he overpitched and was driven between fielders for 4, was unluckily chinese cut for 4, and then overpitched and was driven for 4 again.

Thanks for the report. It's great to have you bringing some life to the Glamorgan thread.

Good stuff. You can usually wander in for free after tea at most places in my experience.

Is that the guy who's a team-mate of Dougie Bollinger at NSW?

Yeh, that's him. I don't know how long he'll be here, I think he's due to turn into Marcus North at some stage.

Good on the Glams for holding Essex to a draw today. Lesser teams might have folded.

Huw Waters has yet to be dismissed this season, so it was appropriate that he came in at the end.

Went along for the day today ... in which the Glams bowled well, restricting Leicestershire to less than 200 for 6 in the sun, over three full sessions. Harris is back, and the attack looked OK. Only one of our bowlers is of any decent height but the ball was carrying through nicely at times. I was hoping for some good batting from Sarwan but he looked out of sorts and was out for 3. Thornely reined himself in well but was disappointed to be out for 97. A bunch of regulars was yattering away in the shade.
