We will come back with a positive attitude and clear game plan - Harrison

15 Sep 2021 | Cricket

Assistant coach David Harrison says the side will put up a 'good fight' on the final day of their LV= Insurance County Championship match against Gloucestershire.

The Welsh county are 57/6 in their second innings and still trail Gloucestershire by 53 runs after the away side reached 419 all out in their first dig. 

“On the day we had Gloucestershire 94-4 in 35 overs early on, but then the pitch got pretty placid. Andrew Salter got 2-90 from 40 overs, which was good, and I can’t fault the effort of the bowlers,” said Harrison.

“We had the chance to knock them over earlier, but we didn’t take it. They batted well lower down.

“We haven’t come across spin for a while and it was a new challenge when we batted again. They bowled well, but we will come back with a positive attitude and clear game plan and try to put together some partnerships.

“Zafar is a fine bowler and there was a little bit of turn for him. We have played against some good teams in Division 2 and we have been a little bit below par in some of the games.

“But we are going to put up a good fight and try to stay in this game when we resume. We don’t want to end the season with a whimper after winning the Royal London Cup.

“We knew we would have some really tough games here in Division 2, but we have got a game and a half to try to finish well.”
