Match Notes

County Championship Division Two News

  • Nottinghamshire take second place

    Nottinghamshire took second place, and a handsome prize, after victory over Sussex on the final day of the Championship season

  • ten Doeschate blitz sends Essex up

    Ryan ten Doeschate produced a destructive 59-ball 108 and Mark Pettini played a captain's innings of 85 from 94 deliveries to put Essex back in the top flight for the first time since 2003

  • Last-ditch chase awaits Essex

    Northamptonshire's players will be utilising whatever methods they can to keep tabs on Essex's progress with their promotion fate out of their hands

  • Northants left to watch and wait

    Northamptonshire completed a crushing win over Leicestershire to move into second place in Division Two, but now have to wait for the result at Derby

  • Essex fightback could be too late

    It is looking increasingly unlikely that the successful promotion candidate will come from the County Ground despite Essex enjoying a strong revival
