Just watched the Bears' innings. We had a chance until a poor 19th over from TvdG went for 18.
Birmingham were always coasting given the total we set but our bowlers did exert some pressure again. Couple of dropped chances also did not help.
We seem completely reliant on Cooke for runs. I 'm afraid Balbirnie is a batsman who could not make it in county cricket and is not going to be a run machine. Surely Selman has to open and maybe they could get Lloyd out to the crease in a wheelchair?

The bowlers did very well to make a game of that as 140 was never enough. We really should have made 160+ after Cooke’s efforts. Surely Carlson sits out the next match? Apart from that 79 v Worcs he has scored 41 in 9 innings in all comps

Given that Carlson was given a 2 year contract extension until the end of 2022 they will probably stick with him. The options are so limited.

If you were to pick a combined Glammy / Bears team I reckon only Cooke would get in , so good effort to go down fighting even if the result was never in much doubt at any stage.
