County Cricket Championship 2021
« on: Yesterday at 11:10:26 am »
Essex have begun the defence of their title (which of course wasn't contested last year) with an impressive 490-9 dec v Worcs, and Westley, the Essex captain, notching up 213. Worcestershire have been reduced to 43-4.

From what I can gather, the County Championship has been reduced to a 10-match sideshow to all the important 20-20 stuff that cricketers have to play these days. The 18 first class counties have been divided into 3 groups and there is some means of breaking ties so that a later stage can be played. Whether that means that those counties who don't reach the later stages play only 5 first class games a year, I don't know.

I see that Yorkshire's match has been snowed off :)

There is always the chance of a very rare event - 1000 runs before the end of May - as there are 7 county championship matches before the end of May, and there's already a few who have got 200 runs to their name.

Worcestershire fought back superbly against Essex, from 43-4 to 350-6.
