Match Notes

  • Porter threatens before light closes in

    The LV=County Championship Division Two clash between Essex and Northamptonshire at Chelmsford ended in a draw after bad light brought a curtailment in play with the visitors 92 for 4 in pursuit of 302 for victory from a minimum of 56 overs

  • Another Essex recovery unlikely to impress Irani

    Essex confirmed the sackong of Paul Grayson as their veteran captain James Foster recovered another collapse. Much for the ambitious new cricket chairman Ronnie Irani to ponder

  • Essex have chance to press Northants' 10 men

    Rory Kleinveldt scored a valuable unbeaten half-century for Northamptonshire assisting his side to avoid the follow-on in their LV= County Championship match with Essex at Chelmsford.

  • Azharullah gives Northants the advantage

    Azharullah captured three of the six wickets to fall as Essex ended a truncated opening day of the LV= County Championship Division Two match against Northamptonshire on 177 for 6 at Chelmsford
