Essex Replayed: Watch Along With Sam


It was a match which took our winning-streak up to six games and made supporters believe that a second Championship title in three years was a real possibility.

With the focus on Mohammad Amir playing the final red-ball game of his career, it was actually Sam Cook who produced the match-winning performance and a bowling spell which take some beating.

Career-best figures of 7-23 in the Kent second innings, after already bagging 5-42 in the first, ripped through the home side’s batting line-up to leave them 40 all out. With Kent have a first innings lead of 112 runs, this left the team with the task of requiring 152 for the win inside three days.

Sam Cook joined us in reliving that special performance by looking back on all four days in Canterbury and giving us his thoughts as the action progressed.
