Match Notes

  • Kaneria strikes after Walker's ton

    For a day at least the focus on England's middle order didn't include Lord's as Essex fought back from a potential follow-on situation to have a chance of a final-day victory

  • Bopara's hopes fade as he fails again

    Ravi Bopara's hopes of clinging to his Test place for the final Ashes encounter at The Oval faded further as he fell for 1 against Middlesex at Lord's

  • Young Aussie Robson makes his mark

    It was an unproductive day for England batsmen at Lord's. And just to brighten the mood of the England selectors even more, the innings of the day came from a 20-year-old Australian
