I'm sure he will continue to do well. You did well to get him because (with respect) you were not an attractive proposition after last season.exileKT8 wrote: ↑Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:52 pmHi Den
Yes we Glammy supporters are very pleased with Billy Root and hopefully without jinxing him he will do well for us. I was surprised Notts let him go and then surprised he came to us. You of course suffered from Notts batting recruitment policy and your near namesake is thankfully for Glammy not scoring his usual hatful of runs against us in the current fixture.
Our good fortune Root was dropped on 0, agree with you Root is an example of good home players floating around Div 1 squads that are better value to the likes of Northants and Glammy than flying in imports for short periods.
Good luck after the current fixture
I agree with your comments. Wakely cannot be given any more chances. He had the chance to bat all day today and failed once again. Yes a lot of the other batsmen are also culpable and could also be dropped. Having lost Kleinveldt and Gleeson, the bowling is not so strong this year and will not cover up the batting woes.Bucksman wrote: ↑Wed Jun 05, 2019 11:57 amThese quotes by Alex Wakely just about sum it up from the home perspective...
"We were exposed (in the field), we dropped key catches and we were very poor in the field. No excuses, it's one of the worst fielding performances I've seen from us for a long time.
"The game could have been very different if we'd taken those, we could have bowled them out for 150-200 and we'd have had a good game, but now we're chasing it."
Cricket (as with any sport) is largely about taking your chances, something that Glam have embraced wholeheartedly in this game, and, currently, we are pretty hopeless at! Sadly, the skipper appears quite incapable of leading from the front and, clearly, is in desperate need of a break from the firing line and attempt to recapture some semblance of form well away from the spotlight of the first team.
Vasconselos, in particular, has experienced the classic game to forget, in addition to his fielding woes, having now failed with the bat in both innings of the current contest. Hopefully, he will put this behind him and tackle the rest of the campaign in a positive frame of mind.
I think when he appeared to be pulling the team together & getting some decent results he was worth his place. Now there is nothing to justify his selection. We just carry on with the same players, captain and coach - something will have to give soon.
A shame that he has been forced to retire at such […]
