Congrats to Coad on getting to 200 FC wickets! average of 20.3.

I have to confess, I'm surprised he's only taken 200, and only played 50 games! He seems to have been around much more than that!

How many overs left today?

Cricinfo says 61.2 but the on screen at the livestream say ...114.2??

Ah! someone at the livestream has woken up ...... overs now agree.

Ben Mike is on the field has someone gone off?

Snater hits cross batted towards the leg side. Why are they bowling middle and leg to him?

Yeah, but not sure who. He missed a run out chance.

20 off Thommo's last over - he does sometimes remind me of Brooks - the good Brooks / bad Brooks. He makes things happen, but can be expensive.

.... lost count of the runs edged to 3rd man (absent) especially by Snater. If you hit towards mid wicket/cow corner whether by design or accident, some of the edges will travel in the 180 degree opposite direction. They did and we gave runs away - around half of that 70+ lead in total I suspect.

Picture quality seems better but one camera developed a blink - seems cured now - but the replay is still 3 seconds behind the action. I love (not) watching the players congratulating each other ... rather seeing what happened. I know I can wind back but it is annoying.

I think it is Bean who is absent.

I was just thinking all even, but that last wicket tips it back to Essex. Hill really was fuming at getting out!

Just got home after a fine day in the sun. Excellent cricket, mostly, and gloss taken off by Hill's last-over dismissal.

I missed the morning session, but we were ok at lunch, and better when they were around 100 for 6. Then we bowled tripe, especially Thompson and Revis. Hill seems to get on as a last resort, then he bowls far better than anyone. I don't get it. He is both the most economical, and the most dangerous.

It was an odd Essex innings. Not much went past the bat, but when they missed it they were often out. It looked very easy for a while when Lawrence, Snater and Allison were batting. What might have been a lead of 40 turned out to be 91

The playing and missing started when Cook got bowling, but at least we saw him off for only the loss of Lyth. The rest of their bowling was like ours; sort of okay, but without the tripe.

Anyway, Bean and Hill batted beautifully. At basically -4 for 1 I would have said even stevens, but that second wicket has swung it just a little. We now must get through Cook's opening burst tomorrow.

First sighting of Ben Mike. I thought they might have retired the 16 Bresnan shirt, but it's 16 Mike, and he missed a run out from short range, but with only one to aim at, and that was Dan Lawrence, I think. Very costly.

We need to bat all day tomorrow, and if they want they can bat all day Thursday as well.
Essex : draw: Yorkshire?
55% ; 5% ; 40%

I don't think I would argue with your winviz predictions there DM.

That final delivery just encapsulates the way the season has gone with those little careless nicks, or pieces of bad luck just gifting the opposition something to lift their spirits at vital moments.

We certainly need to bat all day tomorrow, if we can. Bean and TKC can hopefully build a significant partnership, I start getting a bit worried and wonder where the runs will come from after that I'm afraid. No doubt Revis, Fraine and Tattersall are capable of playing a substantial innings, but when they come it's always a bit of a surprise.

Lots of hoopla in the media about Sam Cook being the first man since way back when to get 200 wickets at under 20. Coming into the game he had played. 56 matches for 198 wickets at 19.70
Ben Coads 50 matches for 199 wickets at 20.30 isn't too shabby either and congratulations to them both for reaching their landmarks.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

To me, Hill is a victim of what seems to be a know-your-role policy. Our batting order, and indeed selection, has not made a lot of sense this season.

Given the different overhead conditions on the first two days, I think we have done very well. Delighted Bean is doing well. Well done Patto. Let's keep at it.

Hill simply looks class, wherever he bats. We know he's capable of getting big scores because he's done it, so that was a huge loss. TKC we also know can score centuries, and Tatts did it against Surrey. So did Fraine, a few years ago, but this is increasingly looking like the swallow that didn't make the summer.

Bean is stepping into the unknown, but every indication is of an organised, mature and determined batsman. 200 tomorrow would look really good on his cv.

And yes, well done Ben Coad.

Well there was me hoping Thommo would attack Critchley ala Snater yesterday, and get a quick 50 to put us in the game. Half right - he attacked, but straight to cow corner and out for 2.

FWIW I think he bowled well for most of yesterday, but had a terrible over going for 20 including 4 boundaries. Take that out and his figures were reasonable, and for long stretches, he was the only one looking like getting a wicket. Hill also deserved a lot of credit. With Fisher taking 6 for the seconds, we could have Coad/Fish/Thommo/Patto next week and suddenly we're looking threatening, though weak in the batting.

and there is the difference - they put a man there at cow corner on the rope-ish and when Snater was whacking it there we didn't. In the same way we didn't have a point sweeper to cover his other scoring shot and don't mention 3rd man!!

Revis was the victim of some injudicious field placing and Thompson had a bad, very bad over when he bowled short and leggish to Snater and Lawrence, bang, bang, bang 1 4 1 4 6 2 = 15 of those between cow corner and deep straight fine leg.

Wow, this game twists and turns. Almost every ball from Coad and Patto are potential wicket takers. Commentary off, and listening to Joni Mitchell, why couldn't our Acting Director of Cricket be less stingy with the contracts?

Well as I'm away I can neither watch the Livestream nor listen to a commentary.

I can see the score though and Patto seems to be playing out of his skin old warehorse or old dog still has plenty of life in him.

Regardless of the match outcome, Patto, you are showing 'management' that you've still got it so shove it down their throats.

Come on Yorkshire!
