The County Championship Round 11

To my absolute delight I booked 2 days at Derby to watch Essex play Derbyshire, my first County Cricket for nearly 2 years! I rocked up to the ground at around 10am to be asked to sit in my car.

The County Championship Round 10

Round 10 saw my team Essex sit out as they’d planned to play an India team, Covid put paid to that, it also saw England having to put the whole squad picked to play Pakistan in an ODI series into quarantine after 7 people in the camp tested positive. That meant an opportunity for several uncapped players and most teams […]

The County Championship Round 4 – 2021

4 weeks of Thursday starts for the County Championship so far and we’ve watched and pined to be there. The coverage has been it has to be said top drawer, but you just cannot beat sitting in the ground and hearing the sound of leather on willow. 7 counties hadn’t recorded a win before this round, could any of them […]
