Not that it really matters, but today's team against Middlesex. Debut for Josh Rymell:

Wheater, Westley, Lawrence, Pepper, Neesham, Rymell, Walter, Harmer, Nijjar, Snater, Cook

Middlesex won the toss and have elected to bat first.

Khushi gets 1 match the Friday before last and is now overtaken by Rymell.   A bit strange.

I hope Khushi gets a chance in the 50 over competition. Batting down the order in Twenty20 doesn’t give that much of a chance to show what he can do, especially with just 1 or 2 games.

Well, that was disappointing. Neesham failed to see it through- again. Rymell looked promising, Nijjar bowled well. That's it for the positives.

Nijjar (who ISN'T either a youngster or newbie anymore and has already done well in previous seasons) has been about the only "positive" from this dreadful competition. Pepper, on occasions, Cook, Lawrence and perhaps Harmer can surely be the only other ones who have come out of this with their reputations, still intact.
Neesham has been a huge disappointment/waste of money, Wheater a waste of time, Tendo sadly is completely finished and if anyone can tell me what on earth Walter brings to the side and why he is an automatic pick EVERY match, then I'd be very interested to know!
Most of us said before the competition started that we were going to be rubbish in the T20 and the only surprise has been that we didn't finish bottom!!
Sadly, not expecting anything different in the RL Cup.

Scorecards would be nice.

It is supposedly business as usual after all.

I cannot underside the rationale for not selling scorecards. Surely a quid for a bit of cardboard represents easy money?

Every other county is giving them away for free.

Customer service stinks at Essex.

 Sadly the 2021 campaign was signed off with a defeat against the bottom side, who in their previous innings equalled a record fewest boundaries in a T20 innings ( although did score 1x4 and 1x6 ).

It's because due to COVID they are not allowing cash only contactless payments.  I guess they think it would be too much hassle.

Sums up the modus operandi altogether.

Surrey come in for a lot of stuck on here but at least they value paying customers.

Even the MCC aren't as bad as Essex.

A scorecard is a instrinic part of a Cricket match. Who told the club that you could catch the lurgy off a pound coin?

A few weeks ago Buttleman looked promising and scored a match winning 50 at the Oval. Now he seems to have entered the Essex black hole. Is he injured?

I'm not aware that he is injured.  I was a bit surprised that he was left out but he didn't do that well when he played.  The 50 at the Oval was a pretty soft 50 really.  We only needed 118 to win and it was 56 off 51 balls.  Scoring a 50 at that rate was fine for that particular match but it doesn't really prove much as to how good he is at T20.

My wife, currently ill in bed with covid, works at a church. Banks don't want to handle large quantities of cash so they are facing challenges paying in cash collections after their weekend services. That might be part of the story - banks don't want to handle loads of coins. No cricket for me for a while!
