I suppose the big question for Essex is how they do without Cook. Imagine if we had had a Root or a Bairstow for the first half of the season for every game? The huge advantage Essex now have is momentum. They will believe that they can continue to perform even without Cook.

Never mind the loss of Cook and its impact.

We need to find a way that they lose Harmer too

Yes the County Championship must be the most uneven playing field of any first class sport.

Prior to the Middx. game, Cook had had four scores in the 30s spread over three games. Nor does he bowl. Essex are not a one-trick pony.

Not suggesting that they are a one trick pony but three centuries at an average of 66 and the third highest aggregate run scorer in the championship has clearly helped Essex to achieve what they have achieved so far. Contrast this with our openers - if one of them had achieved Cook-like levels of performance, we might well be in a different place.
