1 Week to go | County Championship begins


There is just one week to go until the start of the Specsavers County Championship, with Essex welcoming Lancashire to The Cloudfm County Ground.

Division One cricket returns to Chelmsford with the likes of Jimmy Anderson, Haseeb Hameed and Liam Livingstone due to be in the travelling party.

Alastair Cook will feature for the home side, while Neil Wagner and Simon Harmer will be in contention to make their league debuts for the Club.

With a batting line up to rival any other in the league, and a youthful and exciting bowling attack, Chris Silverwood’s men will look to build on their impressive pre-season form in the opening game.

Tickets are available for all four days and you can purchase them here.
