Match Notes

  • Surrey swagger is back as promotion nears

    Surrey chased a tough target at Castle Park, led there by Arun Harinath and Gary Wilson, and with a gulf growing ahead of the third-placed side in Division Two, the Surrey swagger is back

  • Westley guards Essex faint promotion hopes

    Tom Westley can claim to have played a modest supporting role in England's Ashes success by scoring a century against the tourists - a fact which did not escape his county team-mate Alastair Cook. An Essex promotion is a tougher ask

  • Panesar rises from the Ashes

    Monty Panesar, surprisingly recalled to the Essex side at the Colchester Festival, showed signs that he could resurrect his professional career on the day that England won the Ashes

  • Pettini and Browne lift patched-up Essex

    Colchester claims to be the oldest town in Britain. Mark Pettini is not an old man but, on his 32nd birthday, he relished Essex's Championship return to the salubrious Castle Park. It might well be the day that reinvigorates Pettini's first-class career
