Watch: Anthony McGrath On Dan Lawrence


It was a dream start for Dan Lawrence in England colours as he struck an impressive 73 during the Day Two of the match against Sri Lanka in Galle on Friday.

This was Dan’s first taste of Test cricket and it’s certainly didn’t seem to faze him with the selection of trademark wrist shots and even a 6 over mid-wicket.

Head Coach, Anthony McGrath has always known the talent and ability Dan possesses to shine on the big stage. Since joining the Club in 2016, Mags has worked closer than anyone with the 23-year-old and he discussed the rise to Test cricket with Essex Cricket TV.
