Essex stars continue to shine overseas


An array of Essex Cricket squad members are currently plying their trade overseas for the winter and continue to shine for their individual teams.

The latest to impress were Paul Walter and Callum Taylor who are playing in Melbourne and Perth respectively.

Walter had a stunning weekend with the bat as he opened proceedings with a mammoth 124 not out on Saturday and followed that with a match-winning 76 on Sunday.

The Basildon-born man is currently averaging 46 with the bat and has taken 16 wickets in all competitions. Walter has largely been used as a death bowler by his side and has continually been bowling at an impressive economy rate.

Taylor, who has made quite the impression at Mount Lawley Hawks after scoring 212 and taking six wickets in the same game earlier in the season, took a further four wickets on Saturday for a paltry 54 runs from 20.3 overs.

The 19-year-old is currently averaging 40 with the bat overall and has taken 24 wickets in all competitions.
