I don't know, but he's not "getting" any runs. I get the impression that he is still living off the back of his double century last season, and I think it's well past the time that someone else has a chance.
You might be right but it would be unfortunate if he was another of the talented youngsters Glamorgan have failed.Vetchetarian wrote: ↑Wed May 10, 2017 8:38 pmI don't know, but he's not "getting" any runs.

Of course they have innate ability. They would not have got this far without that. However at this level the difference between success and failure is marginal. I don't know of any of the best players in the game at the moment who don't refer to the coaches who have helped them especially in their early development.Vetchetarian wrote: ↑Wed May 10, 2017 9:45 pmI know nothing of the inner workings of Glamorgan C.C. I follow them from afar, so to speak. They are part of my life, and I love the team as much as any who post here. We all thrill to their successes and suffer when they fall short.
With regards some of the younger players, particularly batsmen, several regular posters question whether they are being properly coached. Now, I'm not qualified to provide an answer, but how much coaching do they need? Don't they all have innate ability ? Can too much coaching be detrimental to their progress ?
Rightly or wrongly, I feel that the coaching question is merely being used as an excuse for continued failure.
The question I would pose is basically - are the likes of Donald and Lloyd, for example, good enough to succeed at the level they are currently playing at ? Their figures would suggest no.
The history of Glamorgan C.C. is littered with players who hung around for many years, until the reality dawned that they simply weren't good enough, and they were let go.
I feel that Glamorgan currently have too many players who are simply not good enough, and that no amount of coaching will alter that.
