Well, fair play to Lammonby, who looked promising.

Otherwise, the usual, generally unimpressive batting display today, though it should be said that De Lange was a handful.

The fact that Glamorgan have an utterly hapless slip fielder has helped.

Before somebody says "Glamorgan haven't batted yet," I'm aware of this... and since we are a strong bowling side, and Glamorgan an indifferent batting one, we may very well emerge with a first-innings lead..... but that doesn't actually change the assessment of a not terribly clever batting performance by us (there's nowt wrong with the actual pitch).

Also..... there's some poor thinking in there, in that Roelof was sent in in a place in the batting order which he hasn't done anything to justify for the past three years.... they seem stuck on the idea that he's an all-rounder but, in red-ball cricket, he is very definitely not.
