Just my opinion if you would allow me to have one?glamman wrote: ↑Thu Jun 03, 2021 3:47 pm A good bowling display with no late order heroics from Lancs. Douthwaite picks up a couple of fortuitous wickets at the end but always better to be lucky than good.You seem incapable of ever posting anything positive about Douthwaite, or Cooke, the opener.
Hopefully we can see a good top order batting display. Cooke will need runs in this game if he is to feature much in the latter half of the season.
Yet our Australian batting failure escapes unscathed.
Anyway, a good bowling effort by Glam. to restrict Lancs to 173.
Our batsmen will now probably undo most of the bowlers good work. Lancs aren't top dogs for nothing.
Cooke has been fortunate to have had this run. With scores so far this season of 0, 0*, 15, 5, 6, 10 and 6*, he has an average of 8.4 - a calculation I can do in my head! That isn't good even by Glamorgan standards.
Labuschagne has some runs in the bank. Given that Australia are unlikely to drop him, I think it is worth Glamorgan sticking with him for the present. However I would rather see Neser playing in the T20s than Labuschagne, particularly if he does not score runs in this match.
