I notice they did it without any wickets for Harmer. It seems to be turning pitches that chiefly incur the wrath of pitch inspectors. Like to see Essex cop it, though! At least we won't hear that "red-ball kings" stuff from them for a while.Essex win in one day plus 30 minutes at their Chelmsford crap hole.
Pitch inspectors ? ?
I think so. A decent response but unfortunately as soon as a partnership started to develop it was snuffed out. Tom Abell got out to a lame shot.239 for 5 at stumps. Perhaps as good as we could have hoped for.
