The quirkier he got, the further David kept depositing him into the Harleyford Road.

That was weird; you'd have thought that would have been coached out of him, or at least been told it made him look stupid.

The One Day Cup has been good so far.

It's the final day of the group stage tomorrow. Kent play in Beckenham for the final time this year against Gloucestershire but sadly for us it's about trying to not come last.

Fair play to Surrey, as they have convincingly won at Derby and I'm pretty sure, as a result, they have qualified for the semi finals of the One Day Cup:p

I think qualified for the quarter finals with a home toe scheduled against Gloucestershire. Still no clarity about where /when given the clash with the hundred game at the oval on Saturday. Still, it's not as if it's the day after tomorrow or anything like that...

Even more confusing having looked at the fixtures, on the BBC website, which shows 2 games on Saturday and then 2 games on the Tuesday (17th) followed by one game on the Thursday (which I thought was the Final !!??).

Good organisation yet again, by the 'we really care about the England Test Team' ECB:rolleyes:

ANDYEAGLE 12-08-2021 07:54 PM

They play at the Oval Sunday in qtrs against 3rd team in group A Should be a good day

The winners of the two QFs between 2nd and 3rd placed teams then play the group winners in the SFs on Tuesday with the final at Trent Bridge on Thursday in front of a minimal crowd that the ECB will then use as evidence that people want the hundred rather than the existing set up.

Thanks Andy for the update about the switch to Sunday. Am meant to be at Lords but there is every chance England will have succumbed in time for me to get to the oval at some point

If they beat Gloucestershire Surrey will play Glamorgan at Sophia gardens on Monday
I went today Glamorgan managed to throw away the game to Yorkshire who had some good bowlers but still stayed top due to better run rate
Somerset blew it again

Yeah, I have Lord’s tix for Sunday, too. A Lord’s/Oval double header might well be on the cards.

Surrey will play Glocs on Sunday as Glocs finish 3rd in the other group on 8 points, ahead of Lancashire who finished 4th with 9 points….

HOVE EAGLE 12-08-2021 08:06 PM

This is from the Glamorgan website
Today's narrow defeat to Yorkshire Vikings in the Royal London Cup has secured top spot in Group 2 for the Welsh county and a home semi-final.

Glamorgan will now face the winners of the quarter-final between Surrey and Gloucestershire at Sophia Gardens on Monday, 16th August - a day earlier than originally scheduled.

Chief executive, Hugh Morris, said: “With a packed cricket calendar, we have worked closely with the ECB to bring the match forward to guarantee a home semi-final at Sophia Gardens for our members and supporters.

“We are also delighted to confirm members will be able to attend the match free of charge as a thank you from the club for their loyalty and support.

“Under David Harrison and Kiran Carlson, the team has played superbly in the competition, and we hope as many of our members and supporters will be able to cheer on the team as possible on Monday.”

Glamorgan topped Group 2 by net run rate on 10 points, with four wins, two no results and two defeats from their eight matches.

It is the first time the Welsh county have reached the knockout stages of a List A competition since 2013.

Won’t they play Tuesday rather than Monday? The other semi is Tuesday & I can’t see Surrey finishing a game at 6:30pm at the Oval on Sunday & being asked to play in Glamorgan the next morning….

EDIT - just seen the above post from Glamorgan website. That is scandalous. Tom Harrison, hang your ******* head in shame.

Really good day at the oval. Weather fantastic for a change and that innings from David superb. 11 sixes. Kept Surrey in the comp. Tim David deserves a deal next season on that innings alone. Great stuff.

Great day out… I missed his entire innings. Absolutely wankered in the restaurant.:)

Agreed
The competition has suffered badly because of the hundred
I expect Glamorgan were told to put the fixture back
A lot of Welsh members are very unhappy about the whole thing and slot of people can’t go on Monday cos of work

ANDYEAGLE 12-08-2021 08:13 PM

So it looks like Surrey will play 2 days in a row. Because of the bloody100.

With Pope back and David on fire we actually have a chance now.

HOVE EAGLE 12-08-2021 08:17 PM

No coincidence that welsh fire are playing in the hundred on the Wednesday
Pretty disgraceful really putting the game back
It’s a semi final of a major competition
Imagine if football did that?

winners 12-08-2021 08:18 PM

I personally love the 50 over stuff and am miffed that the hundred has weakened all the sides although I can also accept that the 100/twenty 20 is more likely to get kids interested

Also the schedule is awful for the test team in terms of batsmen with the games being at the start/end of summer, think England are showing the impact this season, not batsmen excelling

Assumed when I first saw this that there must be a hundred game on the Tuesday so the RL Cup would have to move to either Mon or Weds. But no, the problem is with a game happening on Weds meaning the SF can't be held on its scheduled Tues. Why not FFS?

If I ran Surrey I would go all out to win the QF but do a no show on the Monday and forfeit the tie in protest at the tossers that claim to manage the schedule.

I would phone the ECB at 9.30 to say the coach is stuck on the motorway and can they put the start time back to 1pm

Olympian2 12-08-2021 08:50 PM

But maybe the winner of the Surrey/Glocs game would play away at Durham on the Tues rather than Glamorgan on the Monday.

Not sure how to check that, the Glammy website makes no mention of who the oppo might be. Maybe they were too hasty about mentioning the Surrey/Glocs option earlier…

I had a good day in Beckenham but it was a disappointing performance for Kent today.

We had a steady start with Robinson and Muyeye but then had a collapse in the middle of the innings. After that Stevens got 40 and a few runs from the bowlers but only got 218 and at the time it didn't seem enough. In response Gloucestershire always looked in control and with a well made century for Chris Dent and half century from Graeme van Buuren they won with more than 12 overs left. I think Surrey will win on Sunday but if Gloucestershire play like they did today it will be a close game.

Apart from T20 it has not been a great season for Kent. Without a win in the first stage in the County Championship and only one win in the One Day Cup (not helped by The Hundred). The T20 quarter-final two weeks tomorrow does feel season defining.

RobertCPFC 12-08-2021 11:43 PM

The BBC summary of today's games had the following for the knockout games:

Play-off
Saturday: Essex v Yorkshire
Sunday: Surrey v Gloucestershire

Semi-finals
Monday: Glamorgan v Essex/Yorkshire
Tuesday: Durham v Surrey/Gloucestershire

Final
Next Thursday, 1pm Start at Trent Bridge

There does seem to be quite a lot of confusion about the semi-finals as in some places I have seen it the other way round but what I have posted above seems the most logical.
