Superb win and qualified for the quarter finals with a game to spare. Oh ye of little faith master Langland. Has a team ever qualified for the quarter finals without winning a home game? Glammy have yet to win at home but won six away


Nice to see Selman get a score. Donald needs to slog a bit less, and I was hoping for 200+ given the start they got. We have a very good fielding side which helps.

As a couple of the chasers play each other, I think Glamorgan are in, but home field would be nice to make up financially for all the rain outs.

We have definitely qualified as four teams cannot catch us. Surrey play Glos so whoever loses cannot catch us either. Sadly yet another Cardiff abandonment looks likely on Friday. Dreadful luck for the club. I suspect 17
points would be enough for a top two finish but what chance the quarter final being rained off in Cardiff too?

Hopefully they can win on Friday and get a home draw.

This sums up the situation - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/40919127

Quote:
Captain Jacques Rudolph has praised Glamorgan after they secured their T20 Blast quarter-final qualification with a one-run win at Somerset.

Victory lifted them back to the top of the pool and ensured a top-four finish in the South Group.


Quote:
Glamorgan can top the pool and seal a home quarter-final by beating Middlesex in Friday's final group game.

"This was one of our big goals at the start of the season, to get into the play-offs," said Rudolph.


Quote:
All of Glamorgan's six victories have come away from home with four of the six home games in Cardiff washed out.

Glamorgan have a chance to claim a first home T20 victory of the summer against Middlesex in the Welsh capital and secure a home quarter-final for the second successive season.



A Home draw might not be a good idea ....

Why are Glamorgan so successful at this short form of the game and so dire when it comes to the 3 day stuff?

Just returned home. That was a superb performance and there is no doubt we have the players to win this competition. Such a shame finals day is the same day as Wales v Austria. Will be going to the football with a heavy heart

It's a fair question. We have a lot of big hitters in the side like Ingram,Donald,Cooke,Wagg,Meschede and De Lange but they are not necessarily consistent when it comes to the four day stuff. So in T20 there is a good chance that one or two of the them will do well and that is usually enough. Whereas in the Championship too many of them are out for low scores too often.

It is a completely different game. Glamorgan have may be the best bowling attack in terms of depth, and have some big impact hitters

Strolling onwards - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/41029330

Glamorgan beat Leicestershire by nine wickets

Leicestershire 123 (19.2 overs): Ronchi 28; Meschede 3-17, Wagg 2-12

Glamorgan 126-1 (13.4 overs): Ingram 70*, Rudolph 46*



That was fairly conclusive.

:cheers:

Glamorgan are a very talented team , completely programmed to the T20 format. As already said one day cricket is a very different game from the four day one, and indeed even T20 and 50 over cricket require different skills. 50 0ver cricket is in fact probably closer to the four day game, than the longer version.

T20 requires several skills; the side batting first must try and press home an advantage in the first six overs, after which depending on the number of wickets lost, it can accelerate or start a rebuilding exercise. Any team 60 - 0 after six overs is odds on to go on and win the game. The fielding side must restrict the runs scored in the first six overs, and if during this period wickets are taken then this is a bonus.

Leicestershire were in a strong position after 6 overs, but the fact they had lost 2 wickets was cruicial. Glamorgan were very professional ; even Aneurin Donald. He does not play himself in, but chases the ball right from the start. Batsmen who try to play themselves in are wasting overs, particularly if they lose their wicket..

What must be remembered is that spectators love T20 and it is the future of cricket. Many top players are giving up the longer format knowing they can earn a lot more money. Sad as it is, I fear that 4 day cricket and Test Matches could have a limited future; the Windies have proved that; and South Africa and Sri Lanka are not fat behind them. There can be no future for test cricket if only Australia, England and India remain competitive.
