    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Player Name: SO Coco
    Player Role: Bowler who thinks he can bat
    Batting position: 8-11
    Bowling Style: fast medium (rh) with McGrath-like accuracy and a nice little off-cutter.
    Batting aggression: technically correct stroke-playing plodder


    Am looking to find a spot at the expense of inconsistent performers in the last tour match. Am not much of a wicketkeeper though.

    England Set For Final Preparations

    Essex Invitational XI v England XI
    County Ground, Chelmsford
    26th-30th June

    Chelmsford is set to play host this week to an England side running high on confidence if, with the exception of allrounder Marcuss Deen, not outright evidence. Chief concern will be the need of their top order to find some runs, after having relied heavily on their allrounders to assert scoreboard control in Dublin.

    The Invitational players are much the same as those that crashed to defeat against the Australians in Taunton, but will take heart from the first three days of that game, in which they proved they can come up against the best and win. This time the local attack will consist of David Masters, Tymal Mills and Tom Craddock, while Owais Shah supports the middle order.

    England are expected to make three changes, two of them to the fast bowling stocks. Gasin Myheart is nursing an ankle strain and will be replaced by Kev Goughy, while Smithington-Smythe is rested in favour of Bim Tesnan. Among the batsmen, Jake Howe will get a run in place of Robertson.

    Expected sides

    Essex Invitaional XI: Beegee, Mork, Shah, Teja, Dharan, Jansen, Phlegm, Dong, Masters, Mills, Craddock
    England XI: Fertang, Pickup, Howe, Moody, Wood, Ardley, Deen, Tesnan, Goughy, Furball, Force

    Day One


    Essex Invitational XI: BeeGee, Mork, Phlegm, Teja, Hildreth, Jansen, Dharan, Dong, Thomas, Dockrell, Overton
    England XI: Fertang, Pickup, Howe, Moody, Wood, Ardley, Deen, Tesnan, Goughy, Furball, Force


    The Invitationals opted to bat first on the first morning, and Beegee was uncharacteristically looking to assert himself straight away. The New Zealander raced to 18 (12) by tonking three fours and a six off Force's opening two overs. But the quick had his man in his fourth, as an expansive drive resulted in a nick behind. Mork followed soon after, trapped lbw for 4 by the fired-up Force, and Teja was next, departing for 0 in the same over. An hour in the home side were struggling on 32-3.


    Shah and the newly promoted Dharan made it as far as the change bowlers, but the former was out for 26 as the Essex man hooked a Tesnan delivery to Furball. Dharan was gone for the same score as Deen joined in the rout, and Phlegm was fortunate to survive an lbw shout from Tesnan. At lunch the scoreboard read 85/5.


    The allrounder was unable to make the life count, as Force came back after the break to dismiss him for 12. Dong was only able to make it to 10 before edging Kev Goughy - by far the most economical bowler of the day - to slip. Masters was the next man, this time completing an early five-wicket haul for Force after a brace of streaky boundaries. Force at this point had 5-65 in just 14 overs, out of the home side's score of 130/8.


    Jansen's 20 off 55 had been relatively sedate at the other end, but he became Force's sixth when he edged one to Tesnan for a third catch. Craddock was rapped on the pads first ball but survived, and deciding there was nothing to lose, swatted a bouncer for six for the first ball of Force's next over. The quick got his revenge on the next delivery as Craddock edged to Howe, ending the innings. Force had picked up 7-74, and the Invitational XI a miserable 145 all out.




    England began their reply just before the evening session, and steadily made their way towards a lead as Pickup and Fertang raised their fifty partnership from 19 overs. Dong contributed a tight and testing spell of 8 overs for 10 runs, but the breakthrough eluded him as Dharan dropped the chance Pickup offered him. The keeper-batsman was eventually dismissed by his opposite number, this time off the bowling of Craddock, for 47, but by this point England had progressed to 99. Fertang raised his fifty along with his side's 100, and though Furball had a failure as nightwatchman, England had completed a dominant first day.
