Time For Some Good News

England beat Pakistan yesterday in their first Super 8 match, and Yorkshire, well, Yorkshire are bloody fantastic.

'Relegation Favourites' Yorkshire beat a sorry looking Essex side in 3 days at Scarborough. The Southerners were sent packing with an innings and 96 run hammering at the hands of the Tykes, and poor Alistair Cook must be heartily sick of facing the Yorkshire attack this season, in 3 innings the England opener has made barely a dozen runs. McGratha and Gale got tons as Yorkshire built an impressive first innings total of 516, Essex failed to avoid the follow on as Yorkshire pace man Steven Patterson got a 5 for.

Yorkshire currently lead the County Championship by a country mile, the red rose rabble are in second place.
