2017 season just under way with a drawn match against Lancashire.
Best we can hope for this year?
Stay in division one and a decent cup run in one of the competitions?

Excellent tournament by WA and should have won every game.
Previously have played the entire tournament around Sydney to help NSW win but this time moved it around with games in other states.

Mitchell Marsh is recovering from shoulder surgery and wont bowl til the New Year so will just bat ... which isn't a bad thing as he will only step up if he can bat at 6 in the Test team.

Am looking for the One day, Big Bash (Perth Scorchers) & Sheffield Shield treble this season.

Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
I had Mitchell Marsh to top score and was celebrating when Bancroft got out with Marsh needed 10 runs to overhaul him with them still needing 70 runs.

He then proceeded to get 6 runs from the next 65 leaving me fuming and thinking I was shafted, before finally getting a bat and sealing the deal.

I mean it was only to win £25, but was certainly exciting bet wise.

Game was very one way though.

Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
Domestic One Day competition done and dusted in a 3 week block in Australia and a comfortable win for WESTERN AUSTRALIA by 6 wicket with 6 overs to spare over South Australia in Hobart.

Captain Mitchell MARSH 80no & Cameron BANCROFT 76.
Won 6 of their 7 matches and lost the other by 5 runs when totally in control.

Now switch to 3 Sheffield Shield matches for each state as build up to THE ASHES.
Of course these matches will be going on when England arrive so they will be offered warm ups against a WA Second X1 and a couple of 'Cricket Australia X1' teams.

Worry about your own players if I were you Boots, considering you haven't won the title since 1978!!!

He'll improve now he has proper coaches around him ;o)

Stitch up?
They won the title by winning the last game of the season didn’t they?

There was lots of talk of the cosy Middlesex/Lords connection being used to rescue them this season.
Which didn’t happen

Wurzels finished with a flourish, bollocks to Strauss and his cosy club, especially after last season's stich up

Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
Both counties could have no complaints if they were relegated given their form over the season.
That said in this day and age you’d think they could have confirmed or otherwise the CROSSBOW penalty the day after the game finished.

Westside 2:39 Fri Oct 20
Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
Somerset have said if Middlesex's over rate deduction was reversed, they would take legal action, as their entire game plan in the last match, was to outscore Middlesex's then points total, by 1 point.They argue if they had needed 2 more points, they would have then got them.

Not sure any more batting points, would have been made, on that minefield of a pitch they prepared. They got maximum bowling points.

The decision said that who ever said, the over rate deduction wouldn't be enforced, didn't have the authority, to make that assurance

Sven Roeder 2:24 Fri Oct 20
Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
My recollection is that the game at the Oval was in mid afternoon and meandering to a draw.
The police / umpires insisted play should end for the day
Middlesex obviously were intending to up their over rate in the dead period to avoid a penalty and were assured it wouldn’t be imposed if they ended early.

Reckon they have been done a bit here but have chosen not to take it further.

Grumpster 2:19 Fri Oct 20
Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
The crossbow penalty is a joke really if it did delay the game for a reasonable amount of time. Guessing as they're accepting it though, it probably didn't!

And I hope England bat and run in the Ashes better than this Sri Lankan mob I'm currently watching.

Shambles at the moment. How the mighty have fallen with them and the Windies probably being worse than Bangladesh at the moment.

Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
Mitchell MARSH signs as Surrey's overseas player for all of next season.
Will play in the Big Bash and then avoid the IPL so that he can play the entire county season.

I see Middlesex have accepted their CROSSBOW penalty even though they were told on the day they would not be penalised for their over rate.

Grumpster 1:53 Fri Oct 20
Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
Potentially not a bad signing and he'll obviously improve anyway now he isn't surrounded by failures.

Re: Essex county cricket 2017 thread
Have they made a final ruling over Middlesex appealing the points deduction for being behind the over rate when being attacked by a crossbow?
