They made Glos bat again, just, for 9 balls to knock off 15 and complete a 10 wicket victory. Gohar finished with 6 - 43.

It's about time we had a decent spinner. We've only needed one for about 20 years!

Today's win at Glamorgan makes it seven County Championship wins for Glos this year from a possible 13. No other county has won more Championship games than we have so far in 2021 with one game left to play. It's not every summer we can say that.

Still managed to find some way to keep us in Div 2 though. :(

Apparently, the counties are going to vote in the coming weeks on a) whether to go back to two divisions, and b) whether county cricket should be played in July and August. A minimum of 12 votes required to carry a motion.

Interestingly, the two divisions would consist of 10 teams in Division One and 8 in Division Two. Crucially for Glos, it’ll be based on 2019 standings meaning us, Northants and Lancs will all go up at the expense of Notts (who by a bizarre twist of fate could yet win this year’s title and end up in Division Two next summer!)

Decisions due soon.

That’s exactly why we didn’t want to win it this year, it’ll always be a season with an * next to it. Meaning there’ll always be someone like Glos fans saying you only won it because of Covid.

 

Oh, that and the fact we’re in the worse form of the last decade.

I'm sure IF that happened they'd find away of saving them and I'm also sure Glos would be the fall guys !   🤢

So Chris Dent has decided to step down as captain, I think he has been instrumental in the changes of fortune at the club, very innovative in his choices. I wonder who it will be next season? Bracey is vice captain but it's a lot to ask on a concentration level to be wicketkeeper, main batsman and captain in the 4 day game.
