Match Notes

  • Cook confirms groove with second ton

    Were it not for an England captain registering a second consecutive hundred, there would have been little to cheer as Essex and Surrey played out an inevitable draw

  • Wily Masters duels with Smith

    After day that had Graeme Smith and James Foster battling with the elements as much as each other, it will require some negotiation and engineering from both for a positive result to be achieved by either

  • Dunn gets people talking

    On an even day that saw further time lost to rain and bad light, a fine display from Matt Dunn added a new angle on this encounter
