Tiptree continue to reward top performances in May


In 2024, Essex Cricket’s Official Partner, Tiptree, is rewarding players who stand out with an individual performance on the field with one of their luxury hampers.

After seven were gifted to five different players across the first five games of the season, a further four were given out across the remainder of May.

Warwickshire (H)

Jordan Cox kicked off a sensational end to the first block of Vitality County Championship cricket by underpinning a masterful Essex chase of 330 for victory over Warwickshire following a week off.

His 112 helped the Eagles pull off one of the highest successful fourth-innings chases in history and provided an ideal recovery from defeat to Somerset two weeks prior.

Kent (A)

Having struck a century in the first home match of the season, Cox continued to torment his old employers by striking his first double hundred in Essex colours against Kent in Canterbury.

Cox leathered 207 from 255 balls to set up a mammoth Eagles score of 591-7 declared, ultimately providing the foundation of a sizeable Essex win that reignited the race to the Division One summit.

Matt Critchley took home one of two hampers gifted in the final Championship match of the first block by claiming a five-wicket haul at the Spitfire Ground with his leg-spin.

Critchley proved instrumental in securing the visitors a 197-run first-innings lead as he returned figures of 5/88 from 40.1 overs, removing Ben Compton, Marcus O’Riordan, Joe Denly, Arafat Bhuiyan, and Wes Agar.

Middlesex (H)

The start of the Vitality Blast offered further players the chance to earn themselves a hamper, and Michael Pepper duly obliged with a barnstorming 44-ball 101, his first ton for Essex, to tee up a thrilling win over Middlesex.

With the Eagles chasing 204 to win, Pepper stepped up to hammer 10 fours and six sixes in blasting the second-fastest century ever by an Essex player, sealing a four-wicket win with more than two full overs to spare.

The Eagles Have Landed: The 2024 Vitality Blast at The Cloud County Ground

Fresh from a Finals Day appearance last summer, Essex are now back in shortest-format action in Chelmsford for 2024.

Demand remains exceptionally high, and there are now less than 10% of tickets available across the six remaining home fixtures, with two already sold out.

With the Eagles aiming to go one better in 2024, there is no time to waste to snap up your seats.
