The Bob Willis Trophy – Round 5

Lots has happened cricket wise since Round 4 of this summer’s red ball County Cricket competition. Not least the arrival of the Australians for a white ball only tour. Australia somehow managed to lose the first T20 from an unassailable position. They didn’t hit a boundary from the 14th over until the 3rd ball of the 20th! Dawid Malan had […]

Essex v Lancashire – 2018

3 days and 3 sets of photos – that means lots, with a few wickets captured if you look closely!
