Looking at the options for the squad on Thursday, Cooke and TvdG will remain unavailable. My feeling is the bowling is the main problem but the only possible change to the XI is bringing in Gorvin. While he will be more accurate than Carey or Weighell, he is more medium pace and alongside Cooke, that might be a problem if it is a good batting track. Hopefully Weighell and Carey can get their radar sorted out.

Whatever happens it is great to have got to the final and I am sure they will get plenty of support from the travelling faithful. Good luck!

The two sides who topped the groups go through. Arguably the best batting unit in the competition against the most effective bowling attack should make for a good final.

Both unfashionable counties it is a pity that neither is having a day at Lords for their long suffering supporters.

Let's hope both sides do themselves justice.

What about those of us without Sky? Or are they going to show it for free on their YouTube channel as they have done with some other matches this season? Or is Sky's broadcast going to be shown on the Glamorgan/Durham/Notts stream?

If not, we were able to watch every match except the final.

Unchanged squad then.

Does that mean all the players engaged in Whackit Lite are unavailable, or are the Club doing the right thing by retaining the group that made it to the Final , regardless of returnees ?

Douthwaite should be available. Cooke and TvdG still involved with their teams. Lloyd might be playing tonight so overall not much could be added to the squad. Would hope that Gorvin comes in for Weighell or Carey given how they have peformed in the last 2 games.

The club is doing the right thing as Harrison says it would not be fair to the players used

Shocking that there is nothing on BBC website about the final; whilst rather a lot of articles on last night's dead rubber of a game.

It's covered on BBC Welsh site, but no mention on main BBC Cricket section.

" It wouldn't be fair on these guys not to give them the opportunity ", said Harrison, on his decision to stick with the squad that has reached the Final.

Quite right too. I assume there was some pressure put on him to include some returning players.

Shocking but not surprising. Tuesday night's Welsh news on BBC included a five minute promotional video of the final franchise match with no mention of Glamorgan or the fact that the match was meaningless.

There is nothing on Walesonline either.

A cynical person might think there was a conspiracy to create a false comparison between the two competitions. Fortunately every match in the Hundred has been thrilling and included several incredible catches and massive hits according to their own "neutral" reporting.

Fair number of Durham supporters and neutrals around all looking forward to the final. Let's dig out a win and secure the teams place in our history.

Haven’t seen the Durham squad but thought I saw mention that it includes players returning from the Hundred.
