No vice captain in any form this year per MM.

How great is it to be back!?
I would agree 60/40 in Essex's favour bu8t lets remember the formula that served us so well last year in the closing months, bat first, post something, then let the bowlers do their thing. Yes 208 could/should have been 250/270 but we got a point and have a score on the board.
If we can get Cook great, if we can keep them under 250 its near level pegging for me.
The pitch is used, and taking spin on day 1, it wont take less on days 2+3?

Fingers crossed this time tomorrow we are sat here raving about being right in the mix after a great bowling display from the spin twins.

Roll on 11am.....
