Well done to Essex CCC.

I prefer a bit of Drama in these things but they've done it without getting a sweat on.

Congratulations to them and theirs and I'm sure they deserve a few enjoyable days and nights to let it all sink in.

Might I suggest a two day mini cruise to Amsterdam next weekend.

They will be in Southampton anyway so it would be foolish not to!

Yes, congratulations to Essex (and Lancashire) following promotion to top division. Funny how things can change so quickly 😀
An impressive outcome for Silverwood and McGrath with good management re overseas players etc. Team spirit clear to see.

I think we have good chance to turn them over in the final match if we set our stall out well and give professional performance.

Chris Silverwood has opted not to play Alistair Cook in their game against Hampshire tomorrow.

He wants his team to go through the season unbeaten. I'd certainly like to see them get to the last game unbeaten.

Half of me applauds him, the other half thinks he is being very foolish.

It's all fell into place nicely for Essex

They've done fantastic to win the title but let's not forget the following

They've had cook available for most championship games

Only two players being picked for England and westley not played every 2017 test

3 kolpac players-harmer, ten doeschate and Quinn

I'm taking nothing away from Essex but we have had a horrendous year yet still had 5 players playing for England sat
