Likely wins for Gloucs, Northants and Durham and our likely defeat will put us 5th at the end of the week.

Not looking too good at the moment.. Three guys need to make a century each second time round to make a game of it.

On the plus side, Australia don't have a Test Series planned between April & September until a series against Sri Lanka in June 2022!

Sign Marnus up on a 2-year deal. NOW!

Interesting Welwyn, hopefully that stays the same and Cricket Australia grant his release.

Labuschagne top scoring for Queensland as they chase down 305 against NSW. Hemphrey not playing.

Apparently he is the brother of Pieter Labuschagne.

Congratulations to Neil Brand who has just gone to a century batting at 3 for the Titans today in their opening 4 day game.

The BBC website says "Glamorgan have also offered a new deal to star Australian batsman Labuschagne." The big question is whether he will take it. :yes:

An even bigger question is - why would he want to return to a team that will probably struggle again ?

He will surely receive offers from Div. 1 teams.

Glam missed the chance of getting promotion by fixing something that wasn't broken.

However much money he wants give it to him. His batting was worth 3 or 4 places int he table last year.

He did contribute massively in the Championship, and helped keep Glam out of the bottom two, but will he repeat that kind of form next season were he to return ?

I'm not sure the Club should empty their coffers for any one player though. That's tempting providence.

I suspect it's all moot anyway, as he will surely join a top team.

Like everyone else, I am waiting with baited breath for a decision re Labuschagne. Would seem ‘unfair’ if, having given him every opportunity last year, he was chosen for the Australian team on the back of this and now goes elsewhere for money. I am sure playing for Australia has vast rewards and agents seem to get the best deals for their clients but there must be some players who stay loyal, especially if they have gelled with the management, team, fans, etc. Close to home, think of Maynard, Croft, Cosker, Morris, Wallace who must have been offered much more lucrative deals but stayed loyal without the massive salaries and enticements offered elsewhere. Surely, there will be an announcement soon - would be a good Christmas present for the fans!

Nice thought hujon that loyalty still exists, hopefully more so in Cricket than Football.

Where else would ML go and it has been pointed out on here that at the moment Australian Test players are pretty free next summer and Lyon has gone to Hants. Surrey have Amla, MIddx are after a 4 day overseas bat but BBC says they are looking at Handscomb, let`s hope so as ML would be a better option. Last year Middx put their money into T20.

That`s 3 big spenders who might not want him, of course there are others inc Lancs and Warks.

Congratulations and Good Luck to MM.
