Glamorgan at Edgbaston
#21
Here is my report of the day:
https://deepextracover.com/2018/06/glamo...ught-days/
I agree that the run-out was the key point of the day.  Ian Bell toiled but never looked as comfortable as Trott did prior to the run-out.
In the unlikely event that he read my report, I hope that Trotty doesn't mind that I described his final season as like a farewell tour by Frank Sinatra without the hairpiece.  It was meant as a compliment!

Well and truly gotten away from us, this.

Poor batting performance has cost us dearly.

It’s taken me until now to realise Olly Stone isn’t playing in this. Nursing an injury again? He’d be just the sort of bowler to break obdurate stands like Glamorgan seemed to put up today. I’d say Rhodes and Sibley batting to the close makes this look an awful lot better for us. We expect a lot out of Trott and Bell but if they have come in with four overs to close, or to a session end, as seems to happen all the time, they can only fail. Best to give them a platform, as always.

Yes a decent opening stand tomorrow is what's needed.

Yes, Olly Stone has a slight injury - nothing to do with his knee injury which is fine.
I agree that he has been missed, as has Ryan Sidebottom.

An intriguing last day in prospect tomorrow. Don't want to sound pessimistic, but you will lose more games than you will win chasing 294 in the 4th innings; it is due to be overcast most of the day.

On the other hand, the pitch seems to be fairly tame and if we can get a decent stand for the opening wicket, who knows?

Either way, I would have hoped to be more comfortable than this going into the final Fay.

Going to be difficult today. The opening pair have done a lot of the hard work, saw off the new ball, just have to be patient and not try and chase it too much.

Sadly the best of the weather came Sunday and yesterday so batting will be tough.

So long as Bell and Trott don't have another run-out disaster,  everything should be fine.

Hain out without scoring. His red ball form is a frustration

Jeets and Bell (of course) see us home - excellent performance today that could so easily have gone wrong.

The same for Sibley.  His place as an Opener must be really open to question.  I would think they might drop him down the order and see how he does there ?  Perhaps open with Trotty or Bell - or one of the Seconds ?  I would like to see Ed Pollock being given a run opening in a red ball game.

I agree about Sibley.  He came last year with all sorts of promises made to him about his role and was appointed vice captain but so far, he really hasn't delivered, averaging 12 after nine innings.  It's not so much that he hasn't scored a century, he has yet to score 100 runs altogether.
There are two contrasting options to replace him - Pollock and Umeed.  Both have got fifties in the current game against MCC Young Cricketers - Umeed in 108 balls, Pollock in 33.  I know which I would prefer to watch but that doesn't mean he's the best bet to succeed.
While Hain is away playing for the Lions, that does create a space lower down for Sibley, though Lamb would feel hard done by if he didn't get back in.

Gloucestershire have done Warwickshire a favour by batting out the last day against Kent.
