Match Notes

  • Ashes warm-up loses first-class status

    England's Ashes warm-up game at Chelmsford has lost its first-class status after two new bowlers were drafted into the Essex side

  • England practice descends into farce

    Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott took advantage of some farcical conditions to gain some batting practice ahead of the first Investec Ashes Test next week

  • England stroll but Broad a doubt

    Graeme Swann proved his fitness for the Ashes with a five-wicket haul to help England to victory over Essex in Chelmsford, but concerns linger over the availability of Stuart Broad

  • England struggle after Swann blow

    An injury concern to Graeme Swann overshadowed an encouraging performance by the England bowlers and Tim Bresnan's century

  • Gooch refuses to excuse poor batting

    Graham Gooch, the England batting coach, made no excuses for an underwhelming performance by England's top-order in the Ashes warm-up match against Essex at Chelmsford
