Match Notes

  • Bopara stars but Cook fails again

    Alastair Cook was dismissed cheaply for the second time in the match as Essex and Lancashire settled for a draw at Chelmsford

  • Anderson, Hameed shine on murky day

    James Anderson recorded his best Lancashire figures and Haseeb Hameed struck fifty but further rain disrupted their pursuit of the Division Two title

  • Anderson trumps Cook in England duel

    Jesse Ryder scored a breezy hundred, Ravi Bopara made a rather more steadfast 99 but James Anderson's four-for ensured that Lancashire remain in with a sniff of conjuring the victory required if they are to overtake Surrey

  • Essex will not rush in hunt for new coach

    The successor to Paul Grayson will be asked to secure promotion to Division One of the Championship, says Derek Bowden, the chief executive
