Essex get off the board against a gallant Kent & Surrey

Essex 189 for 3 (S.Sood 84, K.Patel 62) defeated Kent & Surrey 164 for 3 (C.Sharp 70, P.Wakefield 2-19).

Essex batted first and the impressive form of Sanjeev Sood continued as he brought up his 2nd big score of the week (84 off 81 balls) to guide Essex to an imposing total of 189 from their 30 overs. Sood received great support from Kiran Patel (62 off 60) and Paul Wakefield 25. For Kent & Surrey, Neil Richards was the pick of the bowlers with 1 for 26 from 6 tidy overs. In reply, Colin Sharp (70) and Alex Presnell (34) gave their team a slight glimmer of hope before Wakefield’s two late wickets shattered any chance of a Kent & Surrey victory.
