LIVE BLOG: ESSEX V YORKSHIRE, LVCC, DAY ONE – News
— May 5, 2022
“It was a tough day for cricket.
“We weren’t expecting it to be a minefield, and we thought if there was anything on the ground it would be this morning before the sun came up and baked it.
“Getting a wicket in the first round gave us some hope that it would be a good day. ? “Then we dropped an easy chance quite early in Jordan and it got pretty tough from there.
“Overall, we played pretty well as a unit considering we have a pretty weak bowling offense. We got on well. »

Good morning from a cloudy Chelmsford ahead of day one of our Essex clash.
Lots of cloud in the south this morning, although reasonably bright and we’re all set for an on-time 11am start.
Unbeaten Yorkshire – two draws and a win – face an Essex side who have won one, drawn and lost so far this season.
Yorkshire heads into this match following last week’s frustrating draw against Kent when poor light prevented a 114 chase in the final 21 overs. George Hill kind of summed up the mood!
Essex also drew at home last week, but they came from behind against Northamptonshire.
Here, the players are just beginning their warm-up, where ground staff put the finishing touches on what looks to be quite a green pitch.
Joe Root will enter for his first appearance of the summer, while Essex will field another former England captain, Sir Alastair Cook.
A live stream will be available again when we start. Enjoy the day.
