Thoroughly enjoyed that. Great to listen to Captain Cooke back to the form of which we know he’s capable. Also, our new signing, Root, proving his worth yet again. Very memorable baptism for Douthwaite and Wagg, scoring rapidly as always. Enjoyed listening to the articulate and knowledgeable Steve James and hoping for a good performance by our bowlers. Pleased that different people are being given a chance to cement a place and definitely a different mindset noticeable amongst the players. More competition for places can only be a good thing so optimism for all the loyal supporters! Keep it up!

Great batting from Cooke and Root. Think we will still have to bowl well.
Douthwaite not getting much of a chance to show his batting skills. Wonder if he will get a bowl.

Webb just said that Carey was in because of an injury to Hogan. Personally would select him ahead of Hogan at the moment. Carey bowled well up front in his last game - struggled when he came back.

Great start from Carey and De Lange. Will be even happier when Dent gone given what he has done to us in the past.

Very comfortable win which we don`t say often, two in a row which we don`t say often. De Lange, Wagg and Root again prominent who are of course effectively three new players this season. Well done Cooke and Carey also. Without getting carried away dare we hope this is a sign of better things to come.

Like ExileKT8 I feel a definite sense of optimism this season. Seems a much more focused and determined squad with two very good performances. How annoying that we only lost by 2 runs to Somerset as we could have been in contention. However onwards and upwards, I hope. Well done team and outstanding by our Captain and new signing Root. Early days, of course, but dare I suggest that Maynard has instilled some confidence and self belief in the players.

hujon64, like many of us on here I have supported dear old Glammy long enough that definite sense of optimism may be a bit strong. Definite sense of hope perhaps and you are right Carey and TVDG got us close to another win.

A sense of hope is right and it is nice to be able to say some positive things about the players and coaching staff after having to be so critical last season and before.

Debut for Douthwaite and no surprise to see Carey back in for Hogan. Assume they have lost patience with Carlson. Seems to be going down the same route as Donald.
I am not quite sure if Douthwaite is primarily a batsman or a bowler. I guess Glamorgan are hoping it's the former as we have plenty of all-rounders.
Still no front-line spinner. Morgan with 6/21 yesterday but am not sure he is seen as a front-line spinner - however am not sure therefore what he is seen as? We have a number of 2nd XI players who can bat and bowl quite well but not quite well enough.
A little unfair to compare Donald with Carlson. Carlson is in the middle of a challenging engineering degree at University. Studying engineering at a leading institution is not easy with substantial lecture and lab work necessary. He does very well to conduct the two activities in parallel.

My understanding is he is no longer doing the Civil Engineering degree and is doing something with less demands hence his availability for this year’s games during term. It would still make more sense for him to prioritise his degree at this time.

Does not appear that Morgan is thought of as a bowler as despite his figures from Monday he has only just come on to bowl in the 66th over of the innings today.
