Harmer & Chopra Awarded Their County Caps


It was a special day for Simon Harmer and Varun Chopra during the Lunch break on the second day of play at The Cloudfm County Ground, which saw them awarded their County Cap.

The Chairman of the Cricket Advisory Group, Ronnie Irani, presented the pair with their caps, which included some glowing words about them both in front of the Chelmsford crowd.

Chopra, who has been at the Club since he was 8 years old, expressed his delight in being honoured after his return to Essex from Warwickshire in 2016. Harmer, described as Essex’s adopted son, said how proud he is to receive the cap and what it means to play week in, week out for the county.

Essex Cricket TV spoke to both players after the presentation as they proudly wore their new prized possession.
