Found this on wikipedia

Nick browne 2014
"His maiden First-Class century came the following week against Derbyshire at Chesterfield, when he was unbeaten on 132*, the highest score ever made by an Essex opener carrying his bat. In the second innings scored 100* to become the first Essex player since Ravi Bopara in 2010 to score a century in both innings of a match."

 Sir Chef scored a century in both innings for the first time in his illustrious career for Essex against Yorkshire. Can any other players claim the feat for Essex ?

Gloucestershire: Zak Chappell, Brad Wheal and Jacob Bethell sign short-term loan deals

All signed on terms ranging from 1 game to 1 month and will play tomorrow. Not sure I think it should be allowed. Injuries are part of a season and Gloucester should have academy or second team players to call on first.

Assume it means Browne plays again vs Lancs...whats the definition of madness...sums up all that's wrong at the club currently, all too cosy and if your face fits...

Hopefully it means Porter comes in for Steketee too.

As an aside Kish Velani got a ton for Derbyshire 2's vs Notts.

Thanks for the updates. It is interesting to know who is doing well or not. Perhaps our Aussie can have a strategic injury to rule him out of the next game?

I note that Pepper is keeping wicket again. I thought he was giving up the gloves.
Good to see Porter getting some wickets and Allison who I still feel has some potential. I have never been keen on Plom who only bowled 5 overs.

I travelled to New Malden yesterday, thought we may see Nick Browne opening as its 10 days until Old Trafford and he is out of form but no, Rymell and Pepper open, both of which I feel are better suited as mid order batsman.
Anyway with Robin Das again the only real shining light managing 51, and Jamie having a few spanks at the end the usual Essex story of 188 all out continues.
The positive was the bowling of Porter who did get a couple of wickets, looking a bit more settled in his rhythm and Allison who was slightly unlucky not to get a wicket.
Jack Plom and Jamal Richards have continued where they have been all season, going all around the park for plenty.

5 wickets for Porter today, which is an encouraging sign. Also 2 for Allison and Richards- albeit a bit expensive.
