A " warm up game "? In this weather. Where were they playing ?glamman wrote: ↑Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:11 amJack Murphy and Lawlor got out in the heat of Melbourne on Sunday.

The U19 WC is in New Zealand so they are escaping the high temperatures currently being experienced in Australia. Hopefully the Glamorgan boys will get a run out in the next game.
