Kent v Essex – Wickets and Celebrations Galore!

Where to start with this one! Some might and do say that County Cricket is boring, this match was literally edge of the seat exciting! The first 2 days were rain affected, which was frustrating, but it didn’t spoil the trip down to Canterbury. Essex finished day 2 with a wicket down, Nick Browne was caught by Ollie Rayner from […]

Kent v Essex – Proper Cricket is Back! (Part One)

My decision to give the Ashes a miss left me able to see more of Essex cricket this summer. Except the weather scuppered my T20 Blast plans!

Essex v Surrey T20 Blast

The T20 Blast started for Essex with a Friday night match at the Cloud FM County Ground, London rivals Surrey were the opposition.  That held double interest for me, I’m an Essex member and fan, but also a Surrey member so I have a regard for them too. Ryan ten Doeschate won the toss and put Surrey in to bat, […]
