Irani And Ten Doeschate Hit The Heights
Irani eclipsed his 207 not out against Northamptonshire at Ilford in 2002 when he on-drove Alex Wharf for six.
The right-handed batsman was eventually bowled by Huw Waters after a 347-ball innings that included 30 fours and one six.
Irani and Ryan ten Doeschate were four runs short of achieving a new Essex record for the fifth-wicket in first-class cricket before the dismissal of the latter saw them fall agonisingly short.
The duo had put on 313 when ten Doeschate pulled a Ben Wright long-hop round to Robert Croft at deep fine leg.
ten Doeschate’s 148 (200 balls, 18 x 4) was his highest first-class score for Essex, beating his 105 not out against Loughborough last year.
Essex finally declared their first innings just before tea on 584-7.
