Tom Craddock averages 28 from 8 FC matches with 22 wickets. His leg-spin should benefit from the harder Duke ball.

You also seem to have forgotten our tear-away quicks. Mills, Topley & Chambers are more than capable of testing quality batsmen when they are on form. Similarly that bloke Napier is sharp and bowled well last year.

The 2nd half of the championship summer will see a batsman averaging 47 in FC cricket return to the Essex side. His name? Ryan Ten Doeschate.

Paul, you are right I did err by failing to mention Mills, Topley and Chambers. Fear not, one of those three may well feature in our XI to watch tomorrow morning. I saw Topley in the Championship game at Lord's last year - he looks some prospect


And we have both forgotten Greg Smith, who looks like he could be a really good addition to the batting and bowling (particularly at Wantage road)

The Reverse Sweep

You're quite confident about Essex's chances then! It was an oversight of me not to mention Mills and Topley in my piece - that has been corrected. Chambers is a decent bowler too, but from what I recall went a bit backwards last season? If these three and Masters fire you'll have a decent seam attack there.
