It’s September 15th and we’re at the business end of the season – Every team has played 12 games and the top spots and relegation spots being close to being decided. The minor counties must look on with interest at a team, in Leicestershire, which hasn’t won a single game in 2022. Mind you Gloucestershire are in the same boat! […]

Essex Eagles v Glamorgan

Something special happened in this last home game of the T20 Blast league games, again. Essex had beaten their own T20 Blast score with 244 against Sussex, they beat it again during this match! Robin Das opened with Adam Rossington, I am going to put my stall out here and question why Feroze Khushi wasn’t playing, it’s a real concern […]

The County Championship 2022 – Round 6

This was a week when winning the toss wasn’t great, in most cases, as you’ll see below! The weather has been mixed in Essex over the last week with a smattering of rain over several days, I imagine that will have been replicated across the country. It’s hard to know the reasons behind the absolute runs fest happening in virtually […]

A long pre-planned theatre trip and a daughter to get to the Eurostar meant I wasn’t able to attend the first 2 days at the Cloud County Ground to watch Essex v Yorkshire. Day 3 was a no brainer with Joe Root due to bat. There were 3 draws in the 7 matches played and centuries up and down the […]
