Saggers Straight Into Essex Side To Face Northants

Martin Saggers has gone straight into the Essex squad that will face Northamptonshire in the LV County Championship Division Two clash.

Andre Nel comes in to replace Tim Phillips in the only other change to the squad that beat Glamorgan by four wickets in their last match.

Mark Pettini continues as captain with Ronnie Irani not playing four-day cricket.
