About time something was done about those pitches. 12 points deduction for next year and another 12 suspended for two years.

Got off lightly. I remember when we got docked 25 points, for an iffy track at Southend, back in the 80's. Which cost us the title.

Crumbling pitches,

Benign tracks


Don't matter to Essex, they still find a way of winning

Re: Essex CCC 2019
In county cricket the away team can field first if they choose.
If they don’t want to there is a traditional toss.
Obviously with these dry pitches that Somerset produce the ideal is to bat first and have the other team dealing with a crumbling mess in the 4th innings.
Should therefore go the whole hog and allow the away team to choose to bowl OR bat.
Was proposed in Test cricket but the ICC changed their minds.
Should be come in at all levels I think

Thought you boys were involved in another wicket fest. I wonder why Kent escaped sanctions.

Yes Violator, it was Essex v Kent.

At Canterbury.

Re: Essex CCC 2019
wouldn't it be a far better idea to play championship games in the summer instead of early april and late september ?

violator 11:54 Mon Nov 18
Re: Essex CCC 2019
Was it Essex v Kent where 20 odd wickets fell in one day? And aren't pitches prepared which is why the toss is uncontested, and didn't Cook hit a half century in the game? Was lucky to get a game given the pissing rain anyway

Re: Essex CCC 2019
Not much of a deduction for a better than average team, is it? Less than a win.

A bit like deducting Leicester City a point next season and threatening to deduct them another one if they keep on cheating.

Re: Essex CCC 2019
Somerset finally get some punishment for their pitches.
Points deduction for next season due to their disgraceful pitch for the last game against Essex

Re: Essex CCC 2019
Hopefully the selectors will go for quality and not old reputations.

Malinga is ancient, smith is a crap T20 player and is starc a T20 bowler?

Warner may have had a disastrous ashes, but he's quality at whack ball when in form.

Gayle will always sell tickets (shit loads of Caribbean folk living here) and radaba is a class act.

Re: Essex CCC 2019
No Indians
Indian board won’t let them play in this as per the Big Bash
The 6 who won’t get out of bed for less than £125k for 6 weeks work are
Gayle, Malinga, Rabada, Smith, Warner & Starc
Shane Watson wants £100k

Grumpster 10:00 Wed Oct 16
Re: Essex CCC 2019
Are the Indians in it sven, or is it still a case that the IPL wont let them play in any other franchises?

Re: Essex CCC 2019
They are streaming it on the i-player and the website so don’t worry you won’t miss Antiques Roadshow.

570 players in the draft incl 239 overseas players

Re: Essex CCC 2019
i did see that the rest of the draft for the Hundred is airing live on the BBC at around 7pm on sunday night so they're really trying to push it on people.

Not sure how they picked the draft order but "my" team the phoenix *sigh* have the last pick

lowermarshhammer 6:16 Wed Oct 16
Re: Essex CCC 2019
All scheduling now revolves around promotion of the 100 and the demotion of especially the 50 over domestic game and in no way shape or form will the increasingly popular Blast be allowed to overshadow their new franchise concept. Oh and redball county championship is being fucked up as well.

It's all about the ECB's long term aim to reduce from 18 counties down to maximum 10, preferably 8 (in their minds).

Beyond belief shithousing from the governing body.

crystal falace 6:06 Wed Oct 16
Re: Essex CCC 2019
Oh they've really moved the schedule around then.

Never really seemed to be too many real "elite" overseas names in the T20 blast, not sure if this is just because it runs at the same time as other international games.

Maybe it being played earlier in the year will allow some bigger names to play, although run the risk of a lot more games being called off due to weather in April & May

Re: Essex CCC 2019
Crystal

Blast is on before the 100 in April / May. I wonder how many o/s players will turn up and only put in minimum effort to avoid injury before their 100 gig.

Pretty sure that it's only blast Finals Day 5/9/20 that will be on after the 100 is finished. Domestic one day cup on at same time as the 100 with final to be played at Trent Bridge on 19/9/20.

Fuck the 100.
Fuck the ECB.

Grumpster 6:01 Wed Oct 16
Re: Essex CCC 2019
Issue we have is that we're so fucking good that we'll probably have to turn down so many players.

Kohli is just about the only player out there who would improve our red ball team ;o)

Re: Essex CCC 2019
Thanks Lowermarsh

Re: Essex CCC 2019
Wonder if any of the big names coming over for the hundred could be tempted into staying for a few extra weeks of T20 cricket
