Match Notes

  • 'I've never felt this good' - Westley

    At 27, Tom Westley is not one of young guns of county cricket but that may work in his favour. After a difficult winter with England Lions he is more hungry than ever to push him for higher honours

  • Clarke unconcerned by spinners' struggles

    Australia's captain Michael Clarke has defended his spin bowlers Nathan Lyon and Fawad Ahmed after both were subjected to considerable punishment in the tourists' opening two tour matches

  • Starc, Clarke provide bright spots

    Mitchell Starc and Michael Clarke impressed for the Australians although it was another uneven display against Essex

  • Starc and Hazlewood polish off Essex

    Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood shared seven wickets between them as the Australians won by 169 runs on the fourth afternoon in Chelmsford

  • Injured Harris effectively out of first Test

    Ryan Harris has been effectively ruled out of contention for the first Ashes Test in Cardiff when he was unable to be passed fit for the tourists' final warm-up against Essex
