 :o       26 wickets fall in a day!

Essex's Simon Harmer took five Lancashire wickets on his return from international duty as 26 fell in total on day one on a controversial pitch at Chelmsford.

The off-spinner, who had bowled just 23 overs in two months since his last appearance for Essex in late July, claimed his sixth five-wicket haul of the summer to take his tally past 50 for the fifth time in six seasons.


But while his 5-41 helped skittle Lancashire for 131, Essex struggled to capitalise in what is essentially the bronze-medal match to decide the finishing order in the County Championship.

Historic win O0


George Balderson claimed a hat-trick to wreck Essex's hopes of victory in an incredible match at Chelmsford that spanned just a little over four sessions as Lancashire won by 38 runs.
The pace bowler finished with 5-14 from seven overs, supported by Will Williams, who returned 4-24 as Essex lost their last nine wickets for 35 runs in pursuit of 98 to win.Only two Essex batters reached double figures against the telling and incisive bowling of the Lancashire duo, who helped their side to 19 points, whilst the hosts were left with a paltry three points after a dramatic Championship game.

The demons of the previous day, when 26 wickets fell, continued to manifest themselves. Lancashire resumed their second innings on 25-6 and lost another wicket just 20 balls into the morning play.
