Where did you message it to? Perhaps that has also been deleted.

Seems a bit churlish to paywall an obit to me.

Has anyone see Jack Plom (17) bowl? He looks tall and fast.

Link not working for me. Could be a region restriction though?

I've only seen video of that 6-fer (although not from that link as it doesn't work).

Between them, the National boards are trying to make Essex's run in just that bit more difficult...

Short of Beard having a breakthrough season (and he's surely too young), I suspect a season of struggle awaits. The batting looks good on paper though.
Congrats GBG.

I'm surprised by how we've managed to get away with just three bowlers (Porter, Harmer and then either Wagner/Amir) this year.

They've taken 165 wickets between them in 34 appearances.

Whereas the 4th bowler of Quinn/Beard/Walter/Cook/Zaidi got 24 wickets in 15 matches.

The part-timers - Bopara (12), RtD (3), Westley (3), Lawrence (1) - nearly got that many between them.

The most encouraging sign for next season (although I'm still predicting relegation, especially once Porter is called up) is the potential emergence of Sam Cook (6 wickets in 2 matches). If he's Porter's opening partner that lets Wagner be the third bowler that he's better suited to and we can have a proper 4 bowler attack (5 with Ravi).

You would hope Essex will once again challenge next season, but one would have thought that about Middlesex.

The thing with a league of just 8 sides in which 25% of them are relegated is that unless you are pushing for the title you are more or less destined to be in a battle against relegation - 5 teams are currently doing just that.

Cook Minor has another year at university.

I do wonder whether Porter will get picked for England in the next year or so. Anderson has indicated he is going to play on and it's his place that Porter, IMHO, most naturally fills

Paulsre has it right. With two up two down anything could happen and I don't think we'll see much of Cook Major next year. But, the team are another year more experienced and are very well led. May depend on what recruitment, if any, happens close season

I'd also like to see stats for numbers of deliveries in the first 5 overs that a batsman has to play at.

There was a lot of chatter about this at The Oval last week and how some teams may have been caught out by the reduction from 16 games to 14. The approach of "Ah well, not to matter, there'll be other games" isn't quite so viable with two fewer games available, especially in a damp summer. The contest between Middx and Essex at Lord's in April came up for discussion. This was a match which Middx utterly dominated but delayed and delayed their declaration until the lead was 451. This against a team that had struggled badly to hit their batting straps in the opening games. Essex duly lost wickets regularly but dug in deep to gain the draw with 2 wickets remaining. I got the feeling that the Middx attitude was "Let's put the game right out of sight, see if we can bowl them out but, if not, there'll be other games". Talking to furious Middx members the following week, they felt much the same, and recognised the heightened importance of getting wins on the board in the first two months. I would anticipate next season that captains might be just a tad less conservative when pressing for those crucial wins.

certainly hope so, but I'd suggest that all captains would still remain more conservative than their supporters.
