Two Glamorgan players are in action at the moment and will be over the next week in the Scotland/Ireland/Netherlands/Oman Twenty20 quadrangular series.

Today the Netherlands beat Scotland by 7 wickets with Van der Gugten taking 2-35. Smith scored 9* and his 3.5 overs went for 36. Nothing really stands out here but it's good to see them playing some international cricket over the winter, even if it's just some T20s.

Agree with you James H, nothing like time out in the middle.

Smith in Scotland's squad for ODIs v Oman next week.
Van der Gugten not in the Netherlands squad going to India next week but I think they are looking at some of their younger players.

Good to see our players getting international recognition at any level, even though their performances seem at best decent.

I'm afraid seam bowlers in T20 are not much more than bowling machines especially on the flat tracks I expect they are playing on in Oman.

Smith in action again this morning as Scotland bowl out Oman for 24. Smith with 8-3-7-4.
Not great opposition buit have to get the ball in the right place. Good for him to get another run out preseason.

Oman aren't the strongest oppo but didn't disgrace themselves in the T20s, so this is a bit of a shock. Well bowled Smith. Not sure of his credentials for the 4 day game but can see him being an important player in the white ball games this year at least.

Find it strange that Smith bowls 3 overs only than comes in to bat at 11. Was he carrying an injury?

As you say - had an injury but glad to hear that it does not seem too bad so hopefully will be OK for the season start.
