It's hard to be positive in the county championship

Jacques Rudolph is clearly a results man. He is prepared to take a risk for the sake of a win. At Grace Road in April, he set Leicestershire a challenging but achievable target, given our experience of T20 cricket. Leicester chose to take the draw. Yesterday, he declared behind, trying to make up for the time lost to the Cardiff rain. No matter that Glamorgan sacrificed possible batting points, Derbyshire complained of bad sportsmanship.

As one who remembers the exciting cricket produced by the buccaneering captaincies of Colin Ingleby-Mackenzie (Hampshire) and Ted Dexter (Sussex and England), I trust that the new Glamorgan captain will persist in his positive attitude.
