If we're picking only one spinner at Chelmsford, then will Dom put pressure on Leachy's spot? Better fielding, more aggressive batting. On the other hand, not sure if Essex have any LHBs in their top six? SLA usually the better bat vs RHBs

It is, presumably, too much to hope for that Essex might produce anything that might assist the spinners? Although, having said that, they do have Simon Harmer who has been one of the success stories of the season, so maybe I'm wrong about that.

If it's a marginal call as to whether we should play two spinners, we should surely gamble and do it and play both Leachy and Dom?

I wouldn't like to have to make the call if we can only find room for one spinner, though.
