I don't know whether Steadzz knew whether to laugh or cry after Cooke got Glam home and made Kent lose a game they were dominating with seven overs to go.
As good as his hitting was, Kent's no balls really hurt them and the rain was the savior for Glam, along with Cooke.
I was somewhere in the middle. It's not easy seeing Kent self implode and an player that I admire so much play an incredible knock...
I still find it brilliant how the Sky commentators (Cork & Allott) are so clueless. Last year they were raving about Darren Sammy in the T20, Cooke played a major innings which gave Glamorgan a chance, then when he was still in on 30*, Sammy got out and the commentators said "well there goes any hope for Glamorgan" (Glamorgan won that game). Last night was more of the same, Dominic Cork was even saying how Wallace is a key player. (The same Wallace who hasn't hit a hundred in any form for 4 years now) The only man in the comms box who seemed to know Cooke could even hold a bat was Solanki (I thought he was actually very good). To finish my rant, I just find it odd that the county commentators, don't seem to know who the good/in form players are in the county circuit.
Back to the actual game, Kent's bowling was woeful at the death. I'm almost glad that game was broadcast just so people got to see how bad Claydon now is. He was great in the T20s, but anything where it's slightly longer so the batsmen have more time to get used to him, he is useless. I thought Matt Coles bowled well again, Ivan Thomas is still only young, he made some bad mistakes that he will learn from with experience and Stevens was Stevens. Overall, we're going to now need to win most of our games (including tough games against Notts & Warwickshire) I just hope we don't end up losing our T20 QF otherwise it will be another pretty mediocre season.
This is Cunis at the Vauxhall End. Cunis—a funny sort of name. Neither one thing nor the other
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
